A conversation that took place between my sister, Amesie-laa and I on Skype.
Amesie-laa will be referred to as A
and I will be referred to as me (that's short for redeemed diva, silly!)
A:I'm folding my clothes.
me:I can see that. I love Skype.
A: As do I. So what's new?
me: Not tons. Busy with my babies, helping Jeep with photography. You'se knows...the usual.
A: How's the blog going?
me: Not bad. I guess. Writing funny is hard. How did we become funny?
A: I think it's from Grandma.
me: I think you're right.
A: The other day I was visiting her and we were looking through photos of her. And she is a 'diva'. You should see her outfits. And I said "Gigi, you are so stylish!" And she says,"Was stylish. I was stylish. Now all they have for women my age is slacks.'
me: ruckus laughter.
A: 'slacks and turtlenecks' she says.
me: (more ruckus laughter) Yes, we got our humour from Grandma.
A: Blog about that!
me: increased ruckus laughter
A: Are you writing this down?
me: I am. I am.
A: I hope so. I'm giving you good material here.
me: I know, I know. Hey, you know what I thought about doing?
me: I thought about putting up the clip of the time Sandra Bullock impersonated me.
A: I love Sandy!
me: I love that you say it like you know her.
A: Yeah. I love it that you think she impersonated you. You know who could play you? Peter Gabriel would do a good job. (Peter Gabriel is the guy with the thick eyebrows in the film "While You were Sleeping' click here)
me:I’m gonna cry! You are so mean to me.
A: Blog about that. And then link to that post about your eyebrows.
me: The No Wax Revolution? I could do that.
A: You know what's revolutionary? I mean. REV.o.LUTttttttion.ary.
me: No clue.
A: Avocado and scrambed eggs. Oh yeah. I'm going to go make some later.
me: That sounds good. I need a new thing for my avocados. A girl can only eat so much guacamole.
A: You mean 'guacamole'. Say it properly: Walk-a-mole-lay
A: Yeah. Bobby Flay's wife is really BIG on saying things with the correct pronunciation.
me: Good to know.
A: It's why we say 'hal-a-peen-yo' pepper and not 'ja-lop-e-no'
A: blog about that! Hey, you know what you can blog about?
A: My neighbours.
me: You want me to blog about your neighbours?
A: yeah. Here's why. There's these new guys who live upstairs. Let me tell you, you don’t know how good you have it until your old neighbours are gone.
me: Too true
A:Anyway, I came home one night and the house smelled like cigarettes and maryjane. I shoulda known. I saw one of my neighbours friends last night. He was a total pot head and I thought "Well, that’s just ducky!!!!" I work for the police, for crying out loud.
me: That's an outrage! What ever happened to the simple days of wearing turtle neck and slacks?
A: I know.Blog about that!
