Brought to you by the letter "A"

I grew up with Sesame Street and I guess I could attribute (BLAME) part of my love for the brownie on Cookie Monster. I mean, come on....I was a kid and my little pea brain was just mush. Ok...not much has changed apparently!!

Anyway - I'm going to use this opportunity to enrich and enlighten my incredibly vast audience. :-)

So today is brought to you by the letter "A".

"A" is for alter-ego. Everyone has one...yes you do, stop lying. And if you really don't, you should get one. They're AWESOME - which also starts with "A".

I got tired of being told “you can’t act like that in public” or “don’t say that out loud!” So… I bought a wig and a black lace strapless dress, some rhinestone studded sunglasses, a feather boa and, for the pièce de résistance, a black Stetson Cowboy hat and brought to life a sassy Southern Belle I affectionately call “Miss Peach” because, after all, I’m from Georgia by way of Texas and it just doesn’t get much more Southern than that. And guess what? Miss Peach could get away with almost anything.

I began to refer to her as my sister and blamed her for anything that wasn't "appropriate".

One time I took my sister on a weekend getaway with hubby only I didn’t tell him she would be coming along. When we were getting ready to “retire” for the evening he went into the bathroom to brush his teeth. When he came out of the bathroom, I was gone and my sister was standing there in all her glory. Now, before we travel he asks “is your sister coming along?” If I say “not this time” it’s hard for me to tell if the look on his face is one of relief or regret.

"A" is for Alter-ego.

Next Monday - the letter "B". Be ready!!


  1. I bet Miss Peach was "A" blast to hang out with. Happy weekend new friend!

  2. fun post little miss peach!
    you are too funny!
    can't wait for next week ;)

  3. So, I'm sitting in front of the tiki hut today, soaking up some rays and see that I have a couple of new followers. I decided to check out a couple of blogs and here I am, I see my friend Meg is here already, so I know it's gonna be fun.

    I had to go wipe the tears from my eyes, because I was laughing so hard and the screen was getting blurry.

    Anyway, I love your blog. I feel like we're sitting on the front porch, drinking sweet tea and shooting the breeze. I have to tell you that I used to have a coffee cup that read, "Chocolate, it's not just for breakfast anymore." Your blog name made me think of that.

    Come back to the hut any time, take your shoes off, grab a cold drink and relax.

  4. That is awesome! I should get an alter ego asap. xoxo

  5. okay, you are now officially my hero. i am so not cool enough for an alter-ego... all the more reason why i simply must find one! thanks for finding me... can't wait to read more my dear!
