This song is by no means new, but it's one of my favorites and I identify with the lyrics. Enjoy!

It began as any regular evening. I was walking Winnie around our neighborhood, as I do regularly during the week. As we rounded the corner to our street to end the walk, Winnie and I saw a white, furry animal. I wasn't sure what it was -- I only noticed how pretty I found it.
Then the adventure began. Winnie lunged toward the picturesque creature and starting pulling me with her. Startled, it turned around, raised its tail, and started spraying. I realized it was a skunk -- an ALBINO SKUNK (Yes, they exist. I Googled it.) and sprinted toward my house, pulling Winnie as she fought me in her effort to "go play" with another animal.
Thankfully we outran the stench, but I bet our street will be stankin' tomorrow morning. Consider this your warning, West Tupelo: Hold thy breath!

I have discovered that it is time I stop shopping in the Junior's section. I have put on a few pounds (lame), and I guess my body has matured somewhat...Anyway, I have officially outgrown the Junior's section. When I told Kurt about my revelation, he responded, "Uh, yeah... you're 26 years old." Apparently it was obvious to him that I should wear adult clothes at, what I consider, a mere 26 years young. Oh well.
I also realized I don't like John Mayer's music anymore. His last few songs have been sub-par and just plain bothersome. Even when his old stuff comes up on the ol' iPod, I tend to change it (with the exceptions of "Find another you" and "Another kind of green"). I hope he hits a better stride soon. There's just no comparison between mediocre John Mayer and the amazing talents of Ryan Adams.
Last month Kurt and I took our junior high youth group to RYM in Florida. We are leaving on Monday to take our senior high youth back to the same conference. My favorite part about RYM is, no, not the food -- although it is good. It's not the seminars, although Kurt is teaching one, and it is sure to be a hit amongst the youth for the 2nd year in a row. It's not even the night out to eat good seafood and shop. I love RYM because it is AT THE BEACH! That's right, we get free time each afternoon to enjoy the sand and sea, sunbathing, and reading books. And this year, sunbathing is key. "Why?" you ask. Because I plan to be the victor in this year's Second Annual Tan-Off between yours truly and Drew Allison. He won last year, and I plan to win the rematch this year. I have spent lots of time in the sun this summer, so I believe I have a fair shot at this. I'll let you know when we lock arms and compare in August.
Guess what Winnie Claire's been up to lately? We have discovered she likes an array of snacks NOT designed for dogs. Pita chips and hummus, Cheez-its, pretzels, and gummy bears -- to name a few. The other day I took her with me while I drove to AT&T to pick up my iPhone 4 (wooty woot!). I left my car windows down so she could breathe in the sweltering July heat, and I was in the store 10 minutes maximum. I returned to find an empty 4-pack of Nutter Butter cookies and an empty cup where my tea once was. So, little Winnie girl might be British after all since she downed, albeit a lesser version, of tea and crumpets.
