Did He Just Call Me Sugar?

"These boots are made for bloggin'. And that 's just what they'll do.
One of these days these boots are gonna blog all over you."

I’m not even sure he’s a real cowboy.
I am sure he’s a terrible
speller, looking for love in all the wrong places and definitely one brick shy of a load.
But it’s not everyday a girl gets a genuine letter from an honest-to-goodness dude. Falling all over his Stetsons and tripping on at least twenty-two grammatical disasters in the making, he wrote, “I’m just a lonely guy looking for a lady to love……” begins the mysterious message I pulled from the old comment 2006 depository late one nigh
t. It is still good blog fodder today.

At 3:03 PM, lonesome cowboy advertizer left this comment on my blog.....
howdy miss mimi. I’m just a lonesome guy looking for a lady to love. You are real hard on us guys so give us brake. Oh sure I advertise my own self in the Hiccup Times local papey but I aint never found no Lady as pretty as you are an all.. I’m deecent and hard working and I goe to church reglar every Sunday. At least I will until Ma passes over but I don’t mind it too mutch. Revrend Tully he says if my brains was made of dynamite they wouldn’t blow my hat off but hes only fooling around. So what Im saying is how about you an me? If your willin to try me I can travel any wheres you just say that word and tell me where to find you. Don’t tell Ma she don’t kneed to know…..till then sugar.”OK. He’s not Shakespeare.
I’m not Nancy Sinatra either.

Here’s the rub. And remember,
you heard it here first.
Every time I read Mr. Lonesome’s letter, a sweet kinda sumpin’ comes over me and I ….I……well……..I cave.

Sugar has melted.
I don’t know if I’ll ever hear from my cow pokin’ man again, but at least it was weird while it lasted. Could there ever be a better reason to dust off my Milani boots and put on my pencil skirt? This is what I wrote........

Dear Handsome Mysterious Cowboy,
I hesitate to return your lovely letter for two reasons.
I’m quite intimidated by your abundant sophistication and suave and more importantly ……I am, sadly, on the rebound from a torrid love affair with the
Paperclip Guy and not sure I’m ready for cowboy love; but if you’ll give me just one chance to treat you with a little more respect – we’ll give it a groovy go.

Anyway, I’d like to meet your Ma before she passes over – even though my Harvard education doesn’t know what that means. The last time I heard that expression, Charlton Heston was holding a rod and smearing Lamb’s blood on doorposts. Is your Ma Egyptian?

Yours (boots and all),

These boots are made for bloggin'..........
Nancy Sinatra 1966
I have the album you see at the top of the blog. And I owned a pair of go-go boots. Ahem....I still do. Check out the dances in this video - especially the "pony" (I loved it) - and then scrape the bottom of the closet and find your old pair of boots.
Aren't these outfits illegal??

My Dad actually got to meet Nancy Sinatra when he was over in Vietnam while she was doing a show over there. Not sure if she had go-go boots or not, though.

Oh, and for it's worth, this dude was not a real cowboy because he called you "pretty" and a real cowboy would have called you "purty". This cowboy was the equivalent of a wolf in sheep's clothing - just add on a Stetson!

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Bwahahahaha. What Linda said. I do remember that song. Wow, that was a long time ago and I want you to know that I don't have the go-go boots anymore. I loved them back in the day though.

You couldn't stand being with a guy that can't spell Mimi. Just saying honey. I would drive you batty. Have a great day. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Charles Gramlich said...

I always liked that song.

Anonymous said...

I too have always loved that song. Shes got a Awesome Body.
And No I dont have any Go Go Boots. But I do have a pair of JFM boots :P
And after two children I cant put them on currently..but I have them in their box ready for when I can..:P

Amazing Gracie said...

Now be honest! You cannot be old enough to remember that song! It isn't possible!!!
It's also one of those songs that gets in your mind and it keeps going and going and going....
Thanks, Mimi. I'll be humming that for days. Yikes.

Akelamalu said...

He was just trying to get in your boots Mimi. ;)

I'm singing and dancing to that song now!

Babs (Beetle) said...

Ha ha! How I remember that record - and the clothes!

What a cute man, but you can only cover up the differences for one night...or an hour...or two ;O)

Margo Moon said...

Did you write this line:

I don’t know if I’ll ever hear from my cow pokin’ man again, but at least it was weird while it lasted

just to make fall outta my saddle and almost drop my laptop?

Anyway, all I've got to say is,

You just found you a brand new box of bumpkin yeah
and what you know he ain't had time to learn.

Bond said...

Mama don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.....

Jean-Luc Picard said...

That was Fab, Mimi. I'd never seen Nancy sing it before, though heard it many times.

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - How astute of you to notice the spelling differences ("purty" would be it for sure). You think he was a wolf? Nah....just a lonesome cowboy advertizer.
One brick shy of a load.

Mimi Lenox said...

Sandee - You've got that right. No spell, no Mimi.(I think I heard a line sort of like that at the convention last night!)

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - Me too! But it does get stuck in your head.

Jane - She is a pencil skirt perfect. For sure!

Amazing Gracie - Truthfully, my dad and granddad LOVED her (hence, I still have his album)...I must have been about 10 and this song played in my house when I was a kid. She was a cross between a little bit country and sassy go-go "rocker"...(pre-Madonna and Cyndi Lauper) I remember my mother didn't like her short skirts it though!

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - That made me laugh!

Babs - "You can only cover up the differences for one night ...or an hour..or two." Ha! Ha!

Margo - "Brand new box of bumpkin"! Very funny! My commenters today have been hysterical. Bwaaahhaaa

Bond - Cowboys are not my style...oh, now I have Willie Nelson running through my head.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-luc - I'd never seen the video either. The outfits are sexy and retro and all things prissy ala scandalous. Glad you enjoyed.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

I remember cowboy! Good to see him back...

Desert Songbird said...

Well, bless your heart, Miss Mimi, ain't you a sweet one for being sweet on that poor cowboy who c'ain't spell or write for nuthin.

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud - "Cowboy" was a riot back in the day. I'd forgotten how funny his "mysterious" comments could be. I was just "Mimi" then and not a Queen. At one point, Gale was going to play "Ma" and we were going to keep the story going. Then Cowboy got busy with life and Gale started writing her book. It was a great story while it lasted. I don't think I have time for another character right now. Queens and cowboys? Might be funny though...hmm....but it did give me a chuckle today.

Mimi Lenox said...

Songbird - He couldn't spell but he sure was funny.

Giggles said...

I think he might have been pulling your leg. I wonder if it was someone you knew making a funny! Fun post...great humor!! Especially with your reply!

Hugs Giggles

Dawn said...

awwww... A sweet kinda sumpin’ came over me just reading it... how sweet!
But let's face it... you ain't cowgirl material!

jennifer said...

Mimi, I would dearly love to have thighs worthy of those go go boots. Alas, motherhood and excessive gummy bear love have robbed me of such lovliness.

But I was doing the pony in my seat!


And Mimi? Cowboys are over rated. The smell you know.
