Bet U Thought I forgot about U!

Nope, I didn’t forget. I’m dragging about today for some reason. Hmmm, maybe because I was up at 3:40 am yesterday to get ready and drive to Tallahassee and back for the day (6 hours in the car) and I planned to go to bed early, but that didn’t quite work out either!

Anyhoo, I have the letter U today. Micki and I were at dinner on Friday night and she was saying she didn’t envy me that I had U. I had to spout off some U words right back at her like Ugh and Unique. She bowed to my wisdom and we moved on with our dinner. She had two lemon drop martinis- me, boring ole unsweet tea.

But U are here to learn about the letter U. So, I’ve given U two U words already and here’s the third: Unicorn! My friend, Robbie, hurt himself the other day and he’s now on crutches. Dull story there- yard work injury. I told him he needed something more Unique so he said a Unicorn chased him! How’s that for Unusual?

    LOVE IT. It’s been awhile since I’ve heard that song and it always sticks in my mind. A happy song for a bleak morning.

    I used to love that song!
    Thanks for reminding me.
    And I like your other U words: Ugh being my favorite!

    I should be absolutely ashamed of myself. No, not for the two lemon drop martinis. How on earth could I, an alumna of the University of Miami also known as The U, not immediately think of my alma mater for the letter U? I should punished, but hopefully not by paying that tuition again. That would be extreme.
    Had I gotten the letter U, I could have done an entire post on the history (or at least my history) of the U. How I’ve taught my children proper placement of the thumbs together, how if you color it, orange is on the left, green on the right, how the three most important words any parent can tell (brainwash) their children are FULL TUITION SCHOLARSHIP. How could I have been so forgetful? So dense? So Unbelievably uh…uh…Un-something? I take it back. You had a pretty cool letter today. 🙂

    I bet you thought I forgot about U! It’s 8:15 here, but I’m nudging the midnight hour in your neck of the woods, eh? I LOVE this song. Thanks for giving me a quick hit reminder of it.


  5. Unique…I HAVE been called that;I much prefer it to the more often Used, “Odd” or “Weird”. “Unusual” is heard about me, but even my medical problems have been on the “Rare Disease” roster; no has EVER called me ‘Average’. So, I embrace “Unique”, which is probably a better name than my own.(Did you ever see the I LOVE LUCY where she was having trouble finding a name for the baby and was driving Ricky crazy? She said,”I want a name that is unique and euphonious”.He said,”OK, “Unique, if it’s a girl and Euphonious, if it’s a boy”).
    I am NOT going to play the video,Jillian! Just looking at the picture, that danged song is already going through my head!
    (Full tuition scholarship; Micki, too funny!)


  6. Tonette, I have also been called unique, odd and weird, I also like Unique better! LOL! Glad you’re not average in anything you do, but wish you could find a cure for the rare disease. That has to be tough.

    YES! I love that episode of I LOVE LUCY!! Thanks for the reminder of it. AND you know you want to sing that unicorn song- you know you do!!!!
