I am radar for humor. I just love a good laugh and a good story. In my new book, “Bury Me with My Pearls” I have a section entitled, “The Precious Pearls of Laughter.” Another way to say it in Pearl language is irregular pearls or funny stuff that makes us laugh out loud.
I have a New York friend that moved to “tiny town” as she calls it. Linda is a genuine New Yorker who has lovely taste in clothing; always complimented with her pearls. Being a lady of style and taste, I decided to tote her to our version of high society. Linda has been involved in Fashion Week at Byrant Park…the ultimate fashion event in New York City. Our version in “tiny town” is the Spring fashion show at the Ponderosa. Just for the record, the show was not Western themed; nothing like that.
The emcee and shop owner has a Southern accent that if bottled, would be in great demand if any cared to take a listen. This wonderful iconic woman even can add syllables to vowels. In between wagon-wheeled table tops and an assortment of other Western paraphernalia, the grand show began.
As model Martha Louise Holsonback Rainsford Satcher from Virginia, Georgia and South Carolina adjusted her outfit waiting for her introductions, the emcee said, “Hour-wah next model is originally from here-uh and has lived in most celebrated Southern cities in the most exciting relationships. Truly the kind of men and money we Southerners ador-uh…. that we call unearned income. Well, Martha Louise is back and making her-ah debut in hour-ah area….again….. since her-ah momma is in need of her-ah presence. So, let’s welcome back hour-wah own Martha Louise Holsonback Rainsford Satcher. Martha is gracing hour-wah show with a new color this Spring. It is not green, Ladies. Oh, no ma’am. This color is kee-a-wee-ah.” My New York friend looked at me and said, “Is she trying to say Kiwi?”
After tying our best not to snort in the most un-southern sort of way, Linda said, “I think I just pee-ah-wee-ud in my panties.”
