We experience WTF moments everyday, and when it happens to me it just feels good to say WTF! or WTF? For instance when the idiot who speeds up to pass me and then slows to 45 miles per hour on the freeway during rush hour, I simply say "Dude, WTF?" or when the Barista who no matter how many times Monday-Friday I order the same drink, (Ice Cafe Americano with vanilla and a shot of espresso), never and I mean NEVER remembers the vanilla, I say "Biotch, WTF!" It just feels good, don't know why but it does. Anyhoo, last Friday night/Saturday morning I was channel surfing in yet another state of insomnia, and I caught a wave on TV-Land. The show, High School Reunion, was just beginning so I decided to watch it because WTF! I can't sleep, and the high school being profiled is Chaparral High School, located in Las Vegas, Nevada, my hometown. WTF! I'll admit I was a bit giddy.
Saturday afternoon my sister, Coni, drops by for a visit. I don't know if I have ever mentioned Coni, my free-spirited sister who has a quirky sense of humor, just don't let her drink, she is on meds. So, Coni drops by for a visit and we chit-chat, drink wine, lots of wine, (Did I mention that you're not supposed to let Coni drink?), eat and look through family pictures. I came across one of me, Step-Mommy#1, and my Dad on their wedding day way back in '76. Coni and I are laughing so hard, tears are coming out of our eyes. I am wearing a long red dress with a high-neck lace collar; I look very Little House On The Prarie.
I then remember what I had seen on TV-Land duing my most recent fit of insomnia, and tell Coni that Little Cyndi Ellis grew up to be a stripper in order to gain more self confidence. Coni at first has a look of confusion on her face as she searches her memory of who-tf is Cyndi Ellis, then a sense of vague recognition crosses Coni's face, and she asks, "How-tf is Cyndi related to Step-Mommy#1? This is the way the rest of the conversation went:
What's your WTF Moment?
Please note, I have no actual knowledge one way or the other if Step-Mommy#1 was a high class call girl who worked the Rat-Pack crowed, and nor does Coni, it is simply her drug induced opinion. What I do know is this, Coni never liked Step-Mommy #1, she does take meds, and she should never mix her meds with alcohol.
The girl in the picture is Cyndi Ellis.
