Ah, Now I Get It

I have wondered what on earth could be the common bond between such a motley assortment as we three. Kindred spirits we are. The flirt, the flirthater, and the metro. She who neglects her blog, she who speaks her mind with wild abandon, and he who waxes eloquent with a language his own.

Not having discussed our newborn dysfunctions, I did not know our common bond. Nor did they...until now.

The master fessed first, followed by my gurl, and now tis my turn. I too was plucked directly from the womb, all eight pounds, thirteen ounces of me. By appointment.

I too was unable to enjoy the lovelies of breastmilk (as my system rejected it), meaning I was fortunate enough to sample the sweetness of soy at a very young age.

I too had the round head. Pretty round head? Heh. I was U.G.L.Y. Saying that I looked like a ruddied up linebacker was being kind.

In fact, at the age of twelve, I went to visit my great grandmother in Memphis. It took her a moment to mentally find my place on the family tree, and then she realized, and declared with relief, "Oh! You're turnin' into a niiice-lookin' young laday! But my gawd you was an uglay babay..."

And so without further adieu, I introduce you to the founding members of a very unique support group. (And might I suggest that the first "group" field trip be Venice, to visit those canals that we so long for.)

I wish I had a picture of all of you wonderful peeps, but I was not quite the shutterbug a couple of weeks ago that I normally am. Know that you are valued.

As for these two, may they always carry their cell phones on them at all times, as I would be lost without them:

Hmmm... I was *born* in Memphis, in the same hospital they took Elvis to and declared him dead.

Does that count for something?

Which of the ladies is you? Pardon me, I am new here.

Great picture! Loved the post.

Aw, thanks, dear. We would be lost without you, too. For the curious, Key is the good-looking one. I'm on the right. ;)

Oh, Kelley, don't be so modest. Except for the smoking part, you are very much hot. I love your photo on your blog. This one, too. Key's hot, too.

Fantastic picture. :)

I think it's wonderful that you have such a great relationship with those two.

Awwww, now that's sheer happiness!

Tis a shame I hadn't been gifted with my pimp hat yet, in order to show proper respect for my lovely lady friends.

Posted by: Velociman at April 28, 2005 05:56 PM

Thank you hunnies. Next time I'll have pics of all of you.

And to the hotty gurlfriend...This be your warning. No downing thy lovely self, lest I be forced to smite future comments with my powerful editing sword.

One more...

Gotta cry bullshit on that one; the pimp hat was gifted the night before! SOMEBODY hadn't developed a healthy appreciation for it yet!

Posted by: Key at April 28, 2005 05:58 PM

You're right. This was taken Saturday. The boys must have been fighting over it.

Posted by: Velociman at April 28, 2005 06:17 PM

I love the shorts, but you need to wax your chest.

Posted by: Steve H. at April 28, 2005 08:33 PM

Wax my chest?!? I'm supposed to be the metro here, Steve. I heard you were a pig smoking man's man. Apparently you're a pole smoking cakeboy.

Wax my chest. Get the fuck outta here.

Posted by: Velociman at April 28, 2005 09:23 PM

Oh, wait. Key is the one on the LEFT.

Posted by: Steve H. at April 28, 2005 10:04 PM

Waxing chests? Yipes. No way....I can understand back waxing...but chest waxing? How metrosexual.

Posted by: sadie at April 29, 2005 08:45 AM

just tell him chest hair seperates the men from the boys

Yummy, indeed! Allaya.

Happy happy on the 100,000.
