Dear Mimi: You Are Giving Me A Headache




I knew it would happen. Somebody somewhere would rail against the peace globes. It happened this morning.
I would expect something like this from a person of ultra-conservatism perhaps, those who say I'm talking too much about the war, or even an ultra-liberal blogger, those who say I'm not talking enough about the war (doesn't anybody get that I'm talking about any war?) - but it came from neither camp. It came from Condoleezza Rice, a woman whose intelligence I greatly admire and respect.
It seems, however, she is confused about the peace globes.

Dear Mimi Pencil Skirt aka Queen-of-Something-Or-Other,
I am writing on behalf of all politicians everywhere, especially those on Capitol Hill who continue to hear about your little project. Didn't you already do this? I thought we cleared this up last year. These matters should not concern you. Get a grip.

I am working diligently, as we speak, to talk to the Russians, the North Koreans, the South Koreans, the Iranians, the Ukrainians, the Bostonians, and the person who took my parking space. I do not have time to talk to you.

Could you just knock it off? Now what is your question again?

Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice

Dear Madame Secretary,
Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk to little ole me. I know what it's like to have your dance card filled up, it happens to me once every ten years or so too, but I'm sure you can understand that I'm a bit stressed here. Contrary to popular belief, I'm not a left-wing nut who wants to bash your boss or be disrespectful. Nor am I a right-wing pistachio. My pencil skirt lies somewhere left of center at the seam with what I like to think is a balanced - and frilly - hemline viewpoint. I have a story to tell and a long list of concerns.
Let's do lunch. How does November 7th sound?

Mimi Queen of Peace Globes-And-A-Whole-Bunch-Of-Other-Things

P.S. I took your parking space. It's a free country and I didn't have a quarter.

So, I'm waiting to hear back from her......Maybe she's downloading Messenger.
I'll let you know when the call comes. I'd better find some aspirin first for her in the meantime. Sigh.

Note: Please read the post below about 1943. All wars. Any war.

I like Condi she was the best choice for SoS

Hammer - A brilliant woman greatly respected.

Let us know how the lunch with Condi goes. She would be an interesting woman to sit down and talk to.

I'm confused. Was there a point to your fake exchange with Condi?

Mimi Lenox said...

Patti - I may have her meet Scarlett. That might be extremely absurd, however.

Mimi Lenox said...

Anonymous - I'm confused why you're anonymous. And yes, there's a point. The point is that it is most likely pointless to discuss peace globes with the Secretary of State. Condi Rice is a fascinating and bright woman. Regardless of political differences that might come up in our imaginary conversation, she has things under control to the best of her ability, I presume.

I'm not sure if you are new to my blog but I often hold whimsical audience with serious players.
Laced in between the attempted humor, there is usually a point.

Perhaps I'll speak with her again. If I do, we'll discuss peace over a Cobb salad and maybe play a Brahms duet. That would be nice.

Peaceful.
And definitely not pointless.
