What to wear...

Do you remember when you were a kid and you REALLY wanted to do something, but you were just sure your parents were going to say no? I had a flash of this not long ago when I wanted to do something, I didn’t think Nick would object, and he didn’t – but Mollie, now that was a different story.

You see I’m the lucky blogger thats getting to meet up with Sunny soon. She and I made our plans to meet a while back and recently decided on a location. I’ve been lucky enough to meet with several bloggers over the years. Eve was first and Mollie was not thrilled about that at the time. She was about fourteen and very suspicious of ‘online strangers’, just as I’d taught her to be. During Eve’s first visit Mollie was very possessive, she couldn’t have marked her territory any more clearly if she’d peed on me.  But Eve soon won her over and they’re still friends.

Mollie was not thrilled when Nick and I flew to California to meet Grace, A Day in the Life, and Ceeci, who also had a wonderful blog at the time, Eve was along on that one too. Now when I had the chance to meet Florida Dom when he flew into our fair city one time Mollie was even more disapproving.

“Mom! You’re going to meet a strange man? Are you crazy?”

“He’s a really nice man and your dad’s not worried.” I pointed out.

“Well somebody needs to worry!” She pointed out.

But all my visits have gone well and she’d started to calm down until I mentioned I was flying off to meet Sunny. “You’re flying to meet her – all by yourself?” She knows I’m a little worried about flying, and I’ve never done it alone.

I confirmed that I was and the look I got from her reminded me so much of my mother. “And just what do you know about this woman?” she wanted to know.

I told her Sunny’s real name and her husband’s name and that I’d seem pictures of them both.

“That’s good,” she told me, “we know pictures can’t be faked.”

“I’ve talked to her on the phone – she let me borrow those outfits to wear when we went to LJ’s wedding.”

I continued to get ‘the look’. Finally she said, “You realize she’s probably a serial killer don’t you.” (She told me the same thing about Eva, Grace, Ceeci and Florida Dom).

“She is not!” I told her firmly.

“All right then, but before you go I want her phone number and her husband’s number and their home address.”

“Hmmm… about that home address. They travel around the country in an RV.” I told her.

Stony silence. Then, “Well, I guess that would make it easier to hide the bodies.”

Poor Mollie – but I still feel safe. My worries run to the more mundane. What do you wear when you meet a serial killer for the first time?

Ooh PK...I am so envious that you get to meet up with Sunny! Not to mention all the other bloggers you've gotten to meet! Lucky you and lucky them to get to meet you!

OMG...Mollie's reactions had me rolling...especially the "...easier to hide the bodies.”

As far as what to wear...if you think you are going to be killed, wear whatever you want to be found in. LOL However, if you are planning on participating in the serial killings, wear black...hides the blood stains.

Have lots of fun and both of you are going to have to write posts!

Hugs and Blessings...

Mollie has definitely inherited your imaginative powers. It is a sign of age when the kids start looking after the parents.
Hope you have a great time with Sunnygirl

Hi PK, Oh that is fantastic! I am so happy for you and Sunny! I've been wondering who she is meeting :) I hope you will both tell us about it afterwards.

Mollie's reaction had be laughing, especially the serial killer part. Our Sunny? LoL. I think it's sweet she is so protective of you :)

I hope you and Sunny have a wonderful time together.

Oh i am so envious....and so happy for both of you. I love Mollie's reaction....
hugs abby

I do love your Mollie.

I'm green with envy. I wished I was joining you. I know you will both have a wonderful time.

This SO made me LOLOL bright and early this morning, PK. I had a feeling it was you going to meet her. But wasn't sure. :). You two are going to have such a great time!!! I am very happy for you both!!

Perhaps you should don a plastic garbage bag. You know, like what you grab from the car when you are caught in torrential rain at a ball park or something without a rain coat. Prob make it easier for Sunny should she go all Dexter on you ! ROFLMBO.

Mollie is sweet to be so caring for her Mom. We do teach them to be very careful on the internet. You've done well! Have so much fun!!! And behave yourselves! :D. Many hugs,

<3 Katie

Isn't that sweet of Mollie. I remember you saying she wasn't happy about you meeting a strange man. But then I didn't think I was a strange man. I thought of us as being friends and I still cherish our lunch. Have a great time. I am really impressed you are flying there. You Go Girl.

Just one question," What does a serial killer pack?"

At 10:33 AM, Blogger Terpsichore said...

I love that Mollie is so concerned for your well-being. It is sweet. As for what to wear, I say wear whatever is comfortable...and running shoes just in case. ;-) LOL Seriously, I just know you are both going to have a wonderful time and I wish I was going along with you. :-) Have fun...and remember...details... :-) Hugs

LOl, PK I looooove your Mollie.
A girl who nows what she want....nice.

PK. I think SD will not bother at all in what you are wearing. Take something that you enjoy.

Hmmm..... I'm actually a little jealous .. But I know you will have a good time. I hope we get a very precisely account for all forbidden you did.

Should we start collecting money here in Blog Land for bail in case? .. Lol ..

Tell Mollie that I sympathize with her. I'm always having to watch out for my mother and her friends as they get into mischief.

I think it would be funny to meet a dd wife wearing prairie clothes. You know that's how we all pictured submissive wives dressing.

Have a wonderful trip and tons of laughs!

At 12:09 PM, Blogger Faerie Wings said...

Oh PK, that last line from Mollie had me laughing so hard. She's right, but I don't think you have too much to worry about. Have a great time with Sunny, can't wait to hear all about it :)

Omg, rotf!
Thank you for the laugh. This was awesome. She sounds like a very responsible young lady who will never fall prey to a serial killer.

It's wonderful that you get to meet sunnygirl. She has always struck me as an exceptionally kind and warm hearted person. You know, in that nice killer way...

At 7:59 PM, Blogger Minelle Labraun said...

Yea I am super de duper jealous!! My daughter is EXACTLY like Mollie!!
I KNOW you too will have lots of stories!!

At 8:44 PM, Blogger PK said...

Cat, I appreciate your advice on the clothing - I'll check with Sunny and see which part I'm playing. I know we'll have a ball and I know we'll write all about it.

At 8:45 PM, Blogger PK said...

Mollie watched me care for my parents and she helped me a lot. I began really helping them as they reached their eighties, she seems to think she should be telling me what I should and shouldn't do now that I'm in my fifties!

At 8:49 PM, Blogger PK said...

I'm so excited and I can't wait to share all our stories. Mollie is protective of her mama! And I do love her for it.

At 8:50 PM, Blogger PK said...

One day we need to have a large group get together. We really need to think about this!

At 8:51 PM, Blogger PK said...

She's a hoot. Some day Ronnie, I do believe some day.

At 8:57 PM, Blogger PK said...

I'm dying to meet Sunny and I so wish some other were coming along. The garbage bag might be just the right thing.

Years ago Mollie pointed out that I was doing everything on line that I'd warned her not to do - giving out my real name, giving my address, MEETING the people in person. I agree with her and told her to keep all the rules I'd given her until she was fifty - then she could go with her gut!

At 9:02 PM, Blogger PK said...

That's really it, I was meeting a friend when I met you and I'm doing the same with Sunny. But I can understand her fear since she's not here to realize how we've gotten to know one another.

At 9:06 PM, Blogger PK said...

LOL, if you're going to be with me I'd say casual and comfortable.

At 9:07 PM, Blogger PK said...

Good idea about the running shoes! I really wish you were going too!

At 9:09 PM, Blogger PK said...

Well… if it turns out anything like Cassie's girl's trip, bail might not be such a bad thing to have on hand.

At 9:10 PM, Blogger PK said...

Leah, that would be true - but neither Sunny and I are dd wives. We have brief moments of wanting that, but our guys are usually in it for the fun of it. Can't wait to share our stories.

At 9:13 PM, Blogger PK said...

Thank goodness that I really feel safe with Sunny - sure would like to meet you one day.

At 9:14 PM, Blogger PK said...

Yep, a nice killer would be much more fun to vacation with. I can only hope my daughters suspicious nature will keep her safe.

At 9:16 PM, Blogger PK said...

Our daughters are wonderful people aren't they! I'm expecting a story or two - but I don't think they'll be as wild as some would probably like to hear.

At 10:27 PM, Blogger Sarah said...

You know there was one serial killer that only killed strangers. Since you and Sunny are friends, you don't need to worry about that!

How fun for both of you!! It will be an awesome experience for you both!

At 11:57 PM, Blogger Rogue said...

Um, I'd wear running shoes. Like many others, I'm green with envy. Can't wait to hear from you both!!

At 5:20 AM, Blogger Paul said...

don't know how I missed this, I bet you are looking forward to meeting Sunny.
I think Mollie is sweet, don't tell her I said that.
Love and warm hugs,

At 1:31 PM, Blogger grace said...

Nobody said I wasn't a serial killer....but Bossman and I thought there would be too many witnesses!

As for what serial killers wear? Leather and lace...and they carry paddles and whips!

At 2:04 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm really glad she let you and Nick get on the airplane, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to do allllllll that wonderful shopping.

Miss you!

At 6:40 AM, Blogger PK said...

This is a good point, I'll mention it to Mollie!

At 6:42 AM, Blogger PK said...

I will keep the running shoes close. We should definitely try this some time - we can decide later who will be the killer.

At 6:42 AM, Blogger PK said...

Paul, I really am looking forward to it - especially after the flying part is over.

At 6:43 AM, Blogger PK said...

So Mollie was right about you. But true about all the witnesses. Leather, lace, paddles, whip - this trip is looking good!

At 6:44 AM, Blogger PK said...

CeeCi how true! I still use the things I got on that shopping trip! Miss you too.
