Yeah, I looked around today and thought, wow, hillbilly. We have a laundry basket floating in our pool. Hillbilly. It is there because when our dryer threatened to pull a Talking Heads “Burning Down the House” earlier this summer, I had to resort to hanging our wash on the line outside to dry. GREAT money saver, but I think one should really bring in the laundry basket in before it ends up in the pool…
Then there are the band-aids I have noticed that seem to have been placed around the edge of the pool by anyone except me because I don’t swim. I think “HILLBILLY!” I hear the twang of the mouth harp …..”twow-wow…..twow-wow…..” and visions of toothpick suckin’, dirty clothes wearin’, shoeless and brush free hair cloud my vision….
“Pa! We’re havin’ road kill chili tonite! And whoopee! It’s Saturday! Heat up the hot tub, it’s BATH NITE!”
