Ketchup With Us #13

Picture it. Two women loose in New York City. All family worries and concerns left back at home. And a whole day to soak in the culture, the museums, the live performances, the cuisine. What did they do? WHAT. DID. THEY. DO?

Remember the scene in Pretty Woman where Vivian (Julia) goes into the Rodeo Drive boutique and has her five-feet-off-the-ground butt served to her on a platter by a bunch of bitchy sales women? Yeah? Well, that’s pretty much what I expected when Mel and I walked into Prada on Fifth Avenue. Oh, wait. Did I forget to mention that Mel was wearing a giant ketchup costume?

Sure. I was a little puffed up when we walked in, waiting for them to call security as soon as they saw us. But instead … these people were AWESOME. It shocked the hell out of me. And it just goes to show that you don’t really know someone until you walk a mile in their shoes.

Which brings us to today’s prompt. Given the choice, whose shoes would you like to walk in for a day? Mine’s easy. I was going for sloth chic.

* * * * * * * * * *

I could sleep. All freakin’ day.

I could yell for food and get it. Immediately. No manners needed.

I could have people lined up to give me back rubs.

I could jump six times my height into the air.

If you piss me off, I could bite you. Viciously. And we’d be friends again in 15 minutes.

For a quick explanation of this link-up, click here. In short, Mel and I will post a picture or video with a writing prompt on the 1st and 15th of every month. You can write your entry in any form. We love creativity. And, with each prompt, we’ll feature a writer from the previous link-up. Which reminds me …

  1. OMG, I love the shoes in your video..the Red Mary Janes, SWOONING.
    and like I told Mel, there is no way I was chosen as an accident for Featured Writer, I mean me..Shoes? the connection is not hard to make. LOL

    plus you look so cute in that Ketchup outfit.

    Our animals..ahhhhh to be them, they definately have the life.

  2. Shoes and Kir… the perfect combo. Julie Roberts can only dream of looking as hawt in a ketchup costume.

  3. Too funny! Those shoes are gorgeous! So if you split the shoes, do you each get one? Or do you split the time with them?

  4. Ain’t it the truth. My relationship with Jake the 25lb Ninja Warrior Cat probably belongs on some kind of daytime talk show.

  5. Just tell me that this is from when you WERE in NYC – not that you ARE in NYC. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. First of all thank you for responding to my comment on Sensible Mom’s page. I would dare ask though you expect me to keep it under 57 words?? How on earth do you expect this verbose Southern granny to talk that little…

    • “57 or less” is meant as a gift. Meaning we’re trying to keep it easy for people to encourage them to come play. But rules are made to be broken. And they are around here all the time. (Remember … we’re the idiots who wore a ketchup costume in Prada after all.) My point? Don’t let the word count stop you. Jump in the pool. I just mixed up the chemicals so it’s about as clean as it’s gonna get. ๐Ÿ™‚

      P.S. I’m a born and raised Southern girl. New Orleans, to be exact. Your verbosity doesn’t scare me a bit. Bring it!

    This is a good one. I’m feeling pressure to be funny in this comment because you’re the queen of hilarious. What to say?? Well, you did just say you wanted to be a cat . . . but I respect that choice. Who wouldn’t want to be able to bite people at random? I gotta move on, so hahahahahaha!! Not original, but true. Ellen
