Burning Ring of Fire



My mother is a seamstress. She is truly one of the most talented people I have ever met. Give her a needle, thread, and some fabric and she will whip up a beautiful creation. Without breaking a sweat. But it is to my mother's ever lasting lament that neither of her daughters received the 'sewing gene'. Both El' Preggo and I prefer to go to the store and buy off the rack. And if it needs tailoring, well, that is what our mother is for. But to ease my mother's angst, she and I reached a compromise. Every Wednesday I bring Fric and Frac to Gramma's house where she does her best to indoctrinate them into loving sewing. It is too early to say if it is working.

Last night, aforementioned pregnant sister joined us. She needs mommy time before she, herself, becomes a mother to an overgrown, ungrateful, naughty child. (Wait, I think I am confusing my kids with her unborn.) Any ways, after years of her teasing me, the shoe is now on the other foot. With labour looming in the very near future, she asked my mommy and I to ease her anxiety. To tell her it doesn't really hurt. That millions of women before her have exaggerated their agony.

However, revenge is a dish best served cold and I have waited nine years.

I played her Johnny Cash's song "Burning Ring of Fire." And dear internet, no remorse was felt. None at all.

Ha. I think it's great that you take them over for exposure to g-ma's sewing...

Maybe then they can hem their own damn pants (and yours too.)

What is this 'ring of fire' business? Pushing a baby out is a piece of pie, easy peasy, doesn't hurt, nothing to it. Tell your sister immediately.

Also, my name is Elle MacPherson, I live in a castle and I have a pet unicorn.

Michele sent me, Mommy.

Your poor sister. Here, in her hour of need(iness) you rebuffed her tentative advance? LOL Such a meanie. I guess she deserved it, huh?

Good luck to your mom in trying to influence the newest generation of girls, but I suspect it's an uphill battle. It's just a lot easier to buy off the rack.

RIng of Fire. YOu are SO MEAN!

My mother was a professional costumer and her talent was pattern making and cutting, although she could sew ANYTHING, including hand sewn clothing. Her rather was an upolsterer, but I didn't inherit a whit of sewing genes. I can barely thread a needle.

If you might be in desperate need of money and still have absolutely hardly any other option then you certainly may want to consider them. Remember that it is possible to take control of your phone habits, however you cannot control the people who call or text you, so sign up for any plan that takes this into account.

For these varieties of customers, it really is better to consider a vehicle lease, in places you keep and keep the car, as should you own it and take it back for the owner when the lease ends, in tip-top condition. You can file a complaint in case you are living in a state where these car finance are thought illegal. In some states, the lender may keep all the proceeds of the sale even though it exceeds the borrowed funds amount.
