Remember the Time We...

Seen at Running2ks

Please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL MEMORY OF YOU AND ME. It can be anything you want–good or bad–BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. When you’re finished, post this paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON’T ACTUALLY remember about you.

Marianne, remember the time you were working as a body double for Gwyneth Paltrow and I was stuck in that dumb on-set catering job and a Bulgarian terrorist tried to kidnap you, thinking he had Gwyneth?

I snuck up behind him and whacked him with a chafing dish full of cocktail weenies and you pantsed him and he tripped on his trousers.

Then the entire cast lifted us both up onto their shoulders and cheered, "Hooray!" and Jack Black asked you out, but you said no. All I got for my trouble was the head caterer's business card and an offer to work a bar mitzvah the following Sunday.

Ah, the good old days!

M. C. Pearson said...

Ah yes, Ballpoint Bonnie, I remember it well. That next gig at the bar mitzvah I had to be a stand-in for Bette Midler because she never showed for the opening song. I made you do your best Streisand and you got the phone number of the Rabbi stuck in your belt. Oi Vey!

Oh Mimi, I know you told me never to tell unless someone held a candy bar to my head, but I have to ask if you remember the time we owned that candy factory? Your invention of the calorie free/fat free fudge was astounding. It was a shame that mob came in and stole them. Have you been able to find your secret stash? I lost my map.

Mom, do you remember when we took a vacation to a nebula out of our galaxy? I think it was me who saw the aliens first. Didn't you walk up to them and say, "Nanu nanu"? Then I said that I had to do somthing and then I ran to get anything to use as armor or weponds. Than I said to the piolt "Blast off!". Then we narrowly exscaped causing a galactic war. The last thing I said before we jumped to lighspeed was "Whew!".

Running2ks~ Don't you remember that you put the map on that spare bit of old parchment? You only have to tap it with your tongue and say, "I solemnly swear that I crave chocolate." And it will appear as if by 'magic'. Unfortunately, I used mine as a tissue and it got all buggered.
**Mischief unmanaged**

Keegan~ How was I to know that 'Nanu nanu' really meant, 'You guys are ugly, wait and I will blow you to smitherines!" That Mork guy was a real terrorist!

But you running for weapons was not a sure sign of 'We come in peace' ya know.

Next time let's just go to the Milky Way for shakes.

Running2Ks said...

Uh, oh, Mimi. I ate it. Well, that tears it. You need to reinvent, 'k? No problem, right?

M. C. Pearson said...

Oh bother! Back to the drawing board...er...the mixing bowl!

Thanks for your comment on my site. I only got a few comments but I was surprised that you were the only one who commented on the important scriptural component. Isn't that true also with the full armor of God-warfare issue? Does anyone realize we are in a battle? I know we don't always have to be focused on that, but we also like to ignore it. "Sleeping in the light." Now, as far as a fictional memory...Remember we were eating Hostess Hoho's and they were individually wrapped and we thought it was a waste for the company to do that, so we wrote to them and told them about the strain that they were putting on the environment, and so they changed their packaging and decided not to individually wrap them, and we decided that we liked it better the old way, and wrote them, and told them that we actaully liked it better the other way, but they didn't change the wrapping this time, but just sent us a box of Hoho's for our efforts (not individually wrapped)?

Kimber said...

Remember when we were in Hungray together...ya know, exploring our heritage, finding places where our ancestors once resided...and my girls were in the back seat of that tiny mini-van we rented... fighting over 'Skittles' cuz they both wanted all the purple ones...and you tried not to laugh out loud - cuz I was trying to do the right motherly thing and express the importance of 'sharing' and 'sisterly love'...and you changed the subject by telling them all about your mom's pet turtles - and that instantly put them in a good mood cuz they love animals so much....then we got lost and we couldn't speak the language...so we ran out of gas trying to get back to the hotel...

Do you remember the time we were star gazing? We got so caught up in how small we are as compared to the hugeness of creation, that we actually shrunk! We were both 2' 6" tall. Remember, you had to stand in the car to drive home, while I was in the floor of the car opperating gas and brake petals? That was a wild ride!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Do you remember the time when we both went to school and I sat next to you with that live frog. You asked where it had disappeared to. You soon found out a few seconds later when you screamed out.

M. C. Pearson said...

An Ordinary Christian~ Yes, it is so true how overlooked our warfare is. Especially in the Western world, spiritual aspects and miracles are talked over and 'explained' away. We have sadly lost sight of our enemy and that is never good. It allows them to attack us on any front without us being up for the fight. As for our Hostess trial...I am so bummed that they are now in that white plastic and no longer in foil. I say we rethink our stand. Let's infiltrate again and this time not settle for the lifetime supply.

Kimber~ Yeah and remember how my boys complained about being strapped to the top of the van? It was kinda funny when we had to buy the dental floss to remove the bugs from their teeth. They still don't find it amusing but I do!

Julie~ Of course I remember. That was our first meeting with that mischievious Sprite, Puck! How he thought it so amusing that we couldn't catch him with our stubby legs. Hmmph! Luck we found the Pixie when we got home. He had been burnt by Puck too and lent us some Pixie dust to get back to normal. But I still have side-effects. I see Fairies in the strangest places, don't you?

Jean-Luc~ I know you were the culprit. It took forever to get that frog out of my top! Some lab partner! But I bet you never guessed who it was that put the jar of worms you know where?

The Curmudgeon's Rant said...

Do you beemember the time we got lost far inside the African bush? It was lucky for us that your hubby David wrestled down a giraffe to carry us back to civilization. Our rescue didn’t come a second too late because of that pack of hyenas. Man, if it were not for your ninja skills we would have been goners. Thanks again. You guys saved my life.

Fred said...

I'm not allowed to say anything. We were sworn to secrecy after our overseas assignment went horribly wrong. My lips are sealed forever...

M. C. Pearson said...

Curm~ Yes but it was you that helped us avoid the quicksand and the extra-large termites! What a close shave that was. Too bad we all forgot about the ants. You know, the ones that eat everything as they walk along. Our poor guide. He really does look better without hair but I was a bit embarrassed about the bikini underwear.

Fred~ but now that the wall has fallen don't you think we could discuss it? I know that your German skills with that female in Berlin weren't the best, but my lack of knowledge about the various beers really blew it for us. I don't think your wife will ever forgive you for that stunt you pulled with her frock though.

Bonnie Calhoun said...

Ha, Ha do you remember the time that you got a June bug caught in your belly button when I slipped on the dog poop and whacked my head....Oh, Yikes...that really happened.

Okay let's start again. Do you remember the time we were walking on the beach and the hermit crab started talking to us with a Yiddish accent...or was it a pine tree talking with a British accent?

Well he took us to this other place and we became soldiers. You even got fairy wings but you never mastered the landing thing, it was more like crashing! And I got a huge sword, but a dragon scorched my hair and I chopped off his tail and got demoted to private.

M. C. Pearson said...

Bonnie~June bug eebee geebees! How awful that that one is true! Fairies huh? Where ever did you think up that??? :-) I do remember you chopping off that dragon's tail though. Boy oh boy! He was ticked. It takes him a century to grow it back you know. Good thing that Yeti came and carried you away or you'd be a Bonnie Shish-kabob by now. The Oceanide was really cute. Maybe I'll get a kiss from him someday.

Bonnie Calhoun said...

You'd better be careful, I think that Oceanide's mom is a stingray...I know second hand (ha ha, it wasn't mine...how bad that can hurt! Yikes!

M. C. Pearson said...

Bonnie~As long as his dad isn't a shark!

Mimi,
I thought of you when I was in a book store this evening looking at instructional drawing books.
There were several books that instruct how to draw fairies!
