One of Scott’s old co-workers, Matt, had about a 6-month field day regarding our move to the South. He blurted out every Southern redneck joke you could think of (“are you going to drive your house down” and the like). I’m pretty sure that was his manly Matt way of saying, “I’m really gonna miss you, dude.” Seeing as Matt’s def not the sensitive type (more like sarcastic)…he would never be caught dead saying those words!
When his co-workers threw him a really nice goodbye party, they gave him some sweet gifts with a thoughtful cake. But there was a Southern redneck twist to one of the gifts that matched the cake. No picture of the cake, unfortunately. But it mirrored this mug. See it for yourself!
Let me point out the highlights, in case you’re having trouble seeing.
On our home (a mobile home) is a confederate flag.
We have an above ground pool with a GINORMOUS duck floaty.
I’m missing an obvious tooth.
Scott is super hairy – both on his head and chest (looks a little Jersey to me, but okay!).
I’m holding a Budweiser.
This photo was doctored from one of our…um…silly honeymoon pictures. Check out the original…
What? Lots of sun and coconut drinks have made people take worse pictures!
Scott uses this mug A LOT, which is kind of hilarious. Here he was coincidentally drinking out of it just this morning!
Aw, isn’t he cute?!
I’m not sure anyone from Scott’s old workplace reads the blog. But if so – “HI!”
I know who definitely doesn’t read it. Matt. He would be wayyyy too cool to read my blog. But, if by chance he does, I say, “Thanks for never showing your face when we visit NY.” AND, boy do we have a blackmail picture of you. Can you say – HALLOWEEN?!?!?!
Do you think Scott should drink out of this silly mug? Everyone has a ridiculous mug that they drink out of but wouldn’t want anyone to know about, right? What does yours look like?
