The Thelma and Louise Diary: Day 1

At approximately 5:30 a.m. I glued my blodshot eyes to the windshield of my car (just to keep them open) and pointed her toward Des Moines, Iowa. I was single minded in purpose... meet up with MoyDear77 and get our fannies to Tulsa! That's where the party awaited!

Several hours later I was finally rewarded with the first face-to-face meeting with a CCBuddy which I had been anticipating greatly. We hit the road and must've talked ourselves stupid for several hours. (If only to be a fly on the dashboard... except you'd have been so dizzy!) After using up all the oxygen in the vehicle, we found ourselves starting to drift. Eyelids were growing heavy... tummies were rumbling. Shortly before 4 (after scanning the signs at every exit and dolefully agreeing to go one exit further) we finally ended up in a quaint little town called Miami. No, we hadn't taken a wrong turn and ended up in Florida, we were really in Miami, Oklahoma. Driving down the strip, we noticed a distinct lack of restaurants. Not even a McDonalds. The only things we found were a casino, and an oddly place grouping of stores purporting to give 'short term loans'. (I'm sure you can do that math on that one!! Lose your shirt lately?)

"Hey, Okie Burger!" I pointed excitedly at a shabby little dive on the side of the road.

"What IS Okie Burger? Do you want to stop?" MoyDear looked at me, unsure.

"Why not... gotta try the local flavors, right?"

We pulled in and ordered ourselves a snack, and it seemed that time stood still until our number was finally called. I grabbed the food and passed it to MoyDear, then stepped back up to the counter (a few quick paces away) to grab our drinks.

That's when HE came in.

The Okie Burger Cowboy.

In a syrupy sweet southern drawl he ordered himself a 'double-meat burger: only ketchup, french fries, and a medium water'. I willed my eyeballs to stay in their sockets.

"For the love of God..." I thought to myself, taking as many casual glances at him as humanly possible. "He's so BEAUTIFUL!" All I could think was MoyDear HAS to see this! I couldn't wait to share this with her. Our drinks were firmly pressed into my hands and I turned to go to our table with all the grace of a newborn calf, smiling stupidly at the chiseled piece of marble in the straw hat. When I could finally tear my eyes away, I looked at MoyDear and was delighted to see that she had already noticed our new friend. At least, based on the bulginess of her eyes, and the redness of her cheeks, she had either noticed him, or was choking on her Frito pie.

We tittered like eighth graders at their first rock concert, making all the usual mature observations about his beautiful, finely sculpted face, and more than suitable back side. We both gasped in agreement at the way his thick dark lashes outlined his dreamy eyes.

Should we take a picture of him? MoyDear giggled fiercely.

Oh yah baby! Ill tell him were from up north and never get to see guys in cowboy hats, so we were wondering if hed mind us taking a few pictures with him! I rubbed my hands together, masterminding my evil plan. MoyDear simply turned scarlet and shook her head.

Dang. He was leaving with his to go order. We were going to miss this opportunity. We stared wistfully out the (fortunately) oversized picture window as he headed for his giant white truck. (Hey, it was close enough to a graceful white steed for us!!) As he climbed into the cab, we knew that wed never forget him wed always remember the Okie Burger Cowboy.

Unfortunately I cannot confirm, nor deny, any acts of perversion that may or may not have been allegedly performed on said young macho man. However, for $20 I will email you the link to the video!! icon_wink.gif

Oh dear,

I cannot believe none of us "Okies" remembered to warn you about stopping to eat at local places. Some are look nasty but are the best places to eat ever others are just how they look! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif At least you had some excitement. icon_lol.gif My DH could TELL some stories about people he has seen in small town restaurants around here, and the stories would not be pretty. . . . .Probably like that everywhere though

Waaaahhhhhhhhhhhh we didn't GET any pictures!!!! icon_cry.gif

So far we are having a good time though. I mean, we are wicked tired considering we've been on the road since almost 5am, and it's almost 11pm now, but we're still having an awesome time! I wish you were all here for a big, 'ol fashioned, girl's night, sleepover! Ok, who's painting my toes!!
