November 25, 2005 | Life is Good

Our good friends, Bonnie and Tom, came for dinner last Tuesday. It was a fun evening with Tom’s constant off-beat cracks about life in general and Bonnie’s zest for everything.

We four have been mulling over a trip to Europe next summer, my least favorite time to travel, for almost a year. With enough pineapple vodka flowing through Tom and Studly’s veins, they finally popped loose with those coveted Visa cards.

Everyone’s excited to spend three weeks split between Italy, Austria, and Bavaria. Bonnie’s practically balistic to visit the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. Tom’s already practicing his German to sing along in the father of all beer halls, the Hofbrauhaus. Studly just grins and waggles his eyebrows thinking about ten nights in Italy. I do love that man. Then there’s me, sitting back and imaging all the story lines that will fill my notebooks as we ride the trains through these countries. And if I don’t get my ass pinched in Rome this time, I’m gonna throw a fit!

    Just make sure you shake that booty, baby. Sometimes you gotta flaunt it if you want it appreciated. 🙂

    I should obey your words of wisdom. But if I flaunt it any more I’ll probably get thrown in jail. Do you know the Italian word for bail?

  3. Sherrill Quinn Says:

    Well, according to the InterTran site, its “cauzione”. The word also means ransom, so I’m not sure how accurate the translation is…

    Works for me!

    How do you come up with all these sites? And when the heck do you find the time!

  5. Sherrill Quinn Says:

    Well, remember I’ve got this whole “not working” gig going on… On those days when my writing isn’t very prolific, I’m surfing the web. It’s tough work, but somebody’s gotta do it…

    Don’t forget to pitch back, baby.

    Isn’t that how they say “hi” there?

    ahem…I meant pinch back.
