    A babysitter is a babysitter.
    At this point, I’D hire the Avon World Sales Leader.

    I, like you, repressed many urges in a bona fide Missionary Baptist sort of way…but unlike you, I have never cared for the elixir of Satan, iced tea.

    By the age of 7, I worshipped all things KISS…I used to cry myself to sleep at the thought of never seeing them in concert. Of course, I would always close my bedroom door so my mother wouldn’t hear me spinning my records in reverse to see if there were any backmasked messages from me from the dark overlords of rock ‘n roll. Even at that age, I just knew there was something wonderfully magical about Gene Simmons and his 6 inch tongue.

    “I can’t fight this feeling” is indeed done by R.E.O. Speedwagon…any self-respecting Missionary Baptist would know this.

    Hmm..you might think that she’s going to be into all that (and she might) but in my experience it’s own the very opposite. Just think of how much worse it’s going to be if she ends up rebuking ice-tea.

    I used to refuse when my mother offered me money, then I realized that she has a lot more than me and if she’s willing to just give it away? I’m a happy recipient. Same with her baked goods. Very happy recipient.

    The other argument for the Avon World Sales Leader coming to get her is that without her consistent guidance & presence, Miss Leta could – gasp – go to the truly Dark Side: Mary Kay World Sales Leader.

    I think she’d have the pink cadillac within a year. And y’all would be out of the will.

    I’m sorry, but if iced tea, Van Halen, tattoos and leather-studded hot pants are wrong, then damn it, I don’t wanna be right.

    It is REO Speedwagon that sings that song.

    Van Halen is so not the bad boys now. Try Marylin Manson.

    How did you like the last episode of Big Love?

    I am hoping that Leta gives us the honor of sharing her experiences when the time comes. Leta, will you at least consider it?
