KATZBOX UNSPOKEN "HELLO"





Today I went to my daughter's house for a candle party...that's another post...don't get me started on the names of the fragrances....oy....

Anyway, I let myself into her house and she was busy talking on the phone. So, instead of just smiling at one another, or raising an eyebrow, or even just nodding, the above pictures are what happened...big open mouth, copious exaggerated waving and raised eyebrows like I was surprised to find here there in her own kitchen. What the heck? What kind of greeting is that? I'll tell you what kind of greeting that is...it's a standard greeting in our family as far as I'm concerned. That's how I greet people. What in the world is wrong with me? If anyone is lucky enough to get words attached to the surprise-look-crazy-wave-greeting, they'll hear something like, "OH, HEY!!! It's YOU *insert your own name here*, OHMYGOSHIT'SBEENTOOLONGYOULOOKSOGREATI'VEMISSEDYOUSOMUCHHOWHAVEWENOTSEENEACHOTHERFORSOLONG" kind of thing...really...if I was 8, I'd be medicated....sheesh....

Is that really how we say hello?! Now I'm really scared for the next generation. hahahahaha

Em Dog said...

YES! And, I love it!! It's the best HELLO because you feel so loved and excited. . .and, as I am someone who feeds off the energy of others, I apprecite the enthusiasm of the greeting. So, insert a big silent open mouthed smile here! I love you!
Plus, mom you are so pretty!!!!!

Oh Em, that's sweet....and you DO feed off the energy of others...so stay around happy people....for as long as possible honey....you can be a strength to people in need but be sure to "tank up" around your happy folk as much as possible...*big open mouth smile*

I'm with all of you, especially Stephanie Jette. When the twins come, instead of holding them and saying "I love you", or "Welcome to Existence"...it'll be *Insert big opened mouth smile*.


...and they will cry...
