I was running at the beach near my house. I could hear the tides breaking along the shore, but I could also hear someone crying in a driftwood hut I just passed. I stopped, peered inside and found Michael Di Gesu. "What's the matter, Michael?" "I thought we were suppose to go running together." "Oh...was that today? I'm sorry. Wanna go & we can talk along the way?"
And just like that, we were off!!
*this is a creative writing exercise for fun!
1. What the heck Michael! Where are your running shorts?
Well, I do have a black silk pair I keep handy. But nowadays I wear them only in the house. It would create too much of a scene in public...They were custom made for me years ago for a fashion shoot. They are REALLY short. LOL.
I can't imagine those as "running shorts". More like "hot dang cue that stripper music" shorts.
Da, da, da, da,...Well they breathe well...& quite airy. lol. Nothing like a natural fiber. Shiny nylon is des passe.
What? I can't hear you over that music and your intense yoga positions. That IS yoga, right?
2. So I got a text from you. Mind telling everyone what you told me?
I'll be visiting within the next few weeks...Have any free time for a jog?
Yes, because I will be the one carrying the stereo on my shoulder with the stripper music blaring while you wear your "hot dang" shorts.
I don't know if the Pacific Northwest is ready. Maybe Miami. We can always meet down there if you like. It's always HOT in South Beach. Naked bodies everywhere...So we'd fit right in.
Give me 2 weeks, a plastic surgeon, and some cash...
3. If you could invent a jelly favor, what would it be?
I can only answer one thing to that...Chocolate. How cool would chocolate flavored jelly be?
I...I...I love you.
I guess I should get cracking on the recipe.
4. Are you ticklish?
Yes, but only in questionable areas...
Like dark alleys? I mean, those are pretty questionable areas...
Ah, right. Dark alley. (Lips curl into sheepish grin)
5. Why do you keep taking pictures?
To freeze special moments in time. Even though I have a marginal photographic memory, I am a visual person & love to SEE life's finest moments.
I have a very FINE moment I'd like to capture right now! Care to explain?
WHERE DID YOU FIND THAT?! (Hides eyes and turns crimson) HOLY CRAP!!!! That pic is from like twenty years ago!
I don't FRENCH kiss and tell...but maybe good food will sway me...
6. Where are you taking me out for dinner?
You strike me to be the type of girl to really enjoy bustling outdoor cafe. There must be one close by...perhaps with a bit of French flair...
Was it my French braid, the French bread I'm carrying, or my "excuse my French" comments that gave it away?
All of the above.
7. Colin Farrel or Will Ferrell?
Not thrilled by either...but if I must pick, Will...only because of Elf.
Elf Lacked Funny...ELF. Sorry but I love Will Ferrell but he has GOT to STOP taking his shirt off every movie. Now Colin, he has GOT to START taking his shirt off every movie.
You're right about Will, but Collin has his moments...He expands and contracts.
Shall we watch Miami Vice in our running shorts & see if he "expands" his clothes off?
8. If you were a fly on the wall, whose wall would you be on?
Ooo...the possibilities. JK Rowlings...she is my favorite author. I'd love a peek to see what she's working on next.
I hear she is expanding the invisible cloak business to running shorts...interested?
LOL. NO, I'm a traditionalist. I'd like a cloak. So much fun to swish around.
Michael? Michael? Where'd you go? *turns on stripper music & cloak starts coming off* I knew you couldn't help it!
9. Crunchy or smooth peanut butter?
No question...chunky! I love the CRUNCH!
Yummy...crunch...oh wait! We're talking about peanut butter, not chocolate bars.
Let's wrap some chocolate around CRUNCHY peanut butter. I don't think Reeses does a crunchy...do they?
I...I...I love you.
10 I know this is personal, but I must ask: are you...to sexy for your shirt, too sexy for your shirts, so sexy it hurts?
No...I never considered myself sexy. I was always cute. But...with age and maturity many of us lose the boyish or girlish looks & evolve into sexy.
Right Said Fred is secretly crying in his net shirt over your awesome theory. He said he would use the shirt to wipe his tears, but you know...it's netted...kinda hard to do!
Oh, well. Next time he should use bridal veil material. More absorbent, and yet, still see through.
I hear Boy George has an endless supply...They should "net"work.
Let's see...what I learned about myself. Well the most important thing is that even though I had survived a terrible accident with a broken wrist, a large spider scar on my head (top THAT Harry Potter...lol), two minor scars on my face, and a chipped tooth, this former model is very thankful that it wasn't worse. I also realized I kept my sense of humor doing your interview & had a BLAST. I can face my former pic with a smile & not dread. SO, thank you, Tammy, for keeping it real for me & to make me laugh. Laughter is the best medicine! And I'd like to thank all of our blogger friends for their support, prayers, and warm wishes for my speedy recovery. I feel better every new day.
I'm glad the stripper music, run, and laughter kept your spirits up my dear friend! Now collect your "I SURVIVED MY INTERVIEW WITH TAMMY THERIAULT" badge!!! YEEE-HAW!
