I’m looking forward to this weekend with that new girl, Rachel. We texted each other last night over an hour and I learned that she has a fox terrier named ‘dandy’ so I’ll show up with a puppy toy and some treats- wooing the dog seems to work nicely.
Also, she works out and runs! And when I suggested that we have a picnic Sunday afternoon at Lake Sardis and throw the frisbee she jumped all over it even though she’s never played. I like that a lot. She especially flipped out when I said that she would be the first pretty girl I had to drive my new jeep.
I admit that your sister was the one I’d pictured driving- top down going over the Bay bridge into Pass Christian, listening to John Doe on our way to Shaggy’s. Instead, it’ll be Rachel and highway 6 in the hills of Lafayette County, which is fine too. She’s fun so far and maybe when she comes to Biloxi, we can break away and go parasailing in the Pass like I wanted to last summer. But I’ll still have John Doe playing ‘Golden State’ and trying hard not to misspeak the girl’s name.
