I Hope You Want Mustard

The conversation yesterday went something like this: "Hey Nettie, it's Kimberly. Can you work tonight?" Well, I've finished reorganizing my T-shirts- yep my schedule seems to be clear! "Sure, I can work!" "Great, see you when I get there." I pulled on my freshly-washed Subway shirt and khaki shorts and lit out of the house so fast I forgot to tape Summerland. I was off to a land where for every one person that gets mustard, the next five sandwiches get it cause that stuff goes everywhere. I hate mustard.

But there are bright spots. At BBW, we're supposed to look pretty cause we are selling beauty products. Subway? I can roll in wearing those khaki shorts from sometime in high school, in a ponytail that really doesn't work cause the front layers are too short, but slap the visor on my head and I'm good to go. I love it. And then there was the clown. He came in wearing a shirt that repeated, "Can't sleep, clowns will eat me" and as I made his BMT, he said he really was a clown. He and his friend 'Professor Glen' work at a magic store down the road. He came in twice more to get cookies. The third time he brought Glen back with him, who bent keys for us. And he told me his name was Ralph.

Of course, there are kinks. It took us forever to close last night cause I didn't know what I was doing. I got out of there after midnight and started to have a rather interesting imagined conversation: "Harvey, Li'l Cricket closes in five minutes. I don't know if we can make it." You want to get home, don't you? "But can't you wait till later?" You'll forget you need gas and end up being late. "But I just got you gas." Well, if you didn't use the air conditioner so much. "All right, Harvey, you win. You always win." Satisfied RRRrrr.

Feed Harvey first. He gets you where you're going. Starve him, you'll be stranded by the side of the road somewhere on a dark and stormy night...

Do I sense romance in the air between the clown and Tootie Belle?

And, by any chance, was it this clown http://www.scaryornot.com ?

Ok, that last comment was lamo, not the clown I thought he would be.

Here's your man in shining lipstick.

Thanks, Darlene--now I'm scared of clowns...

Oh, you better be scared you little creep! You've been found out and I'm not afraid of you, I'm telling Nettie.

Nettie, there is something you better look at...I was checking out some clown sites tonight and I came accross a photo that had me a bit concerned. It's all too familiar and I conclude you're being stalked. Just take a look at this and you'll know what I mean.

It's disgusting.

Darlene, put down your mouse and back away from the keyboard...

I leave you people alone for FIVE MINUTES and you start scaring the clown out of each other.

Good one Nettie! I don't think any of us will sleep tonight lest clowns will eat us.

Good thing I'm not afraid of clowns anymore...

Wow, that's great Nettie, glad you found that wonderful place to spend a load of cash at. However, some people do believe that an over exposure to clowns could be a cheaper remedy which I think we easily could handle here at the blog for you.

What happened to "Come to me, my jungle friends?"

So, how's Subway going, anyway? I eat a lot of their meatball subs. 12" with provalone. I figure if it worked for Jared...

Oh, ever since I say the Steven King movie, It, clowns scare me.

I do love honey mustard or Dijon!

Hey, Butt: Jared didn't eat the meatball subs, and he only ate the 6"-ers; you'll be lucky if you don't end up looking like Buddy Hackett.

Fanta: This is the asylum.

Darlene: No work needed, we're all here, just waiting for you to "Send in the Clowns".

That brought soothing joy to my soul.

Jeff~Point taken.

Tomorrow is shaping up to be a rainy day which means I'll have all sorts of time on my hands. Ready for therapy Nettie?

Should I be afraid?

Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of Darlene?

I may be all clowned out today, but I think I will post something later.

My, what interesting comments your posts generate, Nettie dearest. When I was a little girl, everyone had birthday parties at McDonald's, and there was always a clown. I got so freaked out, that whenever I got an invitation to a McDonald's party, I would go just long enough to drop off the present and say "happy birthday," and then I'd leave, all because of the clown. maybe I should check out that program...

I don't want mustard, I want Nettie's posts!!!!!

Nettie, sorry to intrude on your comments section like that, but when I saw the post, I knew she needed you and quickly, it was the first thing that popped in to my mind. - B

It's fine, Blair, I am really glad you did.

Darlene winks at Mrs. D. And now sees why Stacey doesn't give her family her blog addy.
