You should be all fresh and sassy from a weekend laying around the pool while your maid/butler caught up the laundry,cleaned the house and pre-cooked all the meals for the week.
Take a good look at this picture and then it will be time for the quiz.
To answer the quiz question from the graphic...
Is the answer:
a) Al has way more lipstick on then Jenny
b) Al has a way better hair stylist then Jenny
c) Al and Jenny both need to do something about those bags under their eyes or...
d) All of the above.
The correct answer is...
Oh, who cares!
How can I care about something as trivial as this when I am presently following in Al's footsteps.
I just realized it earlier today and I am just sick about it.
You know how Al says he invented the internet and everyone made fun of him?
I think that is going to be happening to me next.
I invented texting language.
I thought of it this weekend when I was visiting Alphabe-Thursday links.
Waaaaaayyyy back when I graduated from High School in ummm.... 1974 is when I invented it.
Because I am a genius (just like Al) I took my very creative mind and combined it with my natural ability to do ... ummm.... smart things...
And invented it. It's true. I have proof.
I'm working on finding my yearbook and then you will believe me! I'm sure they can do carbon dating or something on the pages to ascertain the time frame when it happened.
Here's an example of something I wrote:
2 GR8 2 B 4gotten.
Here's another one:
U R my friend 4Ever.
OK, that second example was suspiciously like the first example but this is just a small sampling of the genius that I wrote in yearbooks as FAR BACK AS 1974.
That is ... ummm... ummm.... Carry the one, subtract the seven... ummm...
36 years ago? Huh?
Wait a second. I'm sure that math is wrong. Let me get a piece of paper.
36 years ago!
How can that be possible?
Did they even have anything more complicated back in that stone age then a PONG game?
Well, that doesn't matter.
The fact is I have PROOF that I invented texting language.
And I suspect my lawyer wouldn't want me to be showing all my Exhibit A's and stuff on my blog so you'll have to just take my word for it and use those two examples to illustrate my genius.
(did you see that? I probably invented BTW back then as well. As soon as I find my yearbook I'll know sure)
BTW, do you know any good lawyers for this type of thing?
I need a really good one.
Not the one that Al used.
PS. Yes, I know. That whole rumor was taken out of context about Al, but I'm using it anyway. So there.
PPS. If you read Sundays with Steve on August 15 you may find out how Al originally came up with the idea for the internet in the first place.
