Snow, Valentine's, and Soup

Are you ready for the blizzard...of comedy we will deliver on Friday night? See what I did there? The 'ol misdirection. You thought I was gonna say something about snow. I mean actual snow. Not cocaine. I think snow is what they call cocaine on Craigslist. Not sure 'cuz I don't use it. Cocaine, I mean. I use Craigslist all the time. How else would I find my missed connections? Like this: "You: Drug dealer supposed to deliver my cocaine..." Ah, jeez. Now I've blown my cover.

But really, I don't use that stuff. I'm very sensitive to speedy things. Coffee at dinner keeps me up all night. One Vodka Red Bull and my heart starts doing weird things and then I wake up the next morning at 6am in a tizzy. And I don't even know what a tizzy is. Dictionary.com to the rescue: A tizzy is "a dither." Gee, thanks for the help. So yeah, I wake up in a dither. There ya go.

It's Valentine's Day soon. Fun story: My mom and dad met on a blind date. They were set up by my mom's mom. She met my dad and told him, "You should really meet my daughter. She's learning how to type and she's seeing a therapist." Well. That's what is known as a soft sell. My dad went for it though. Hey, what man doesn't want a woman who's going crazy at 85 words per minute? But it all worked out and that's how ya got me and the rest is Black History Month!

Speaking of history, we're gonna make some this Friday night at the big Hot Soup show. That's Friday 2/12. I'm hosting. Gonna be a fun one. Guests:

"and the rest is Black History Month" LOL!

I have no idea how my folks met. There's too much discord for either of them to ever discuss it, so I've been imagining it for years. I'm pretty sure it was while saving the President.
