This weekend, your esteemed author made a minor comeback of sorts when she had the following conversation with a bartender:

Becky:  "I'll have what Kid Rock drinks."

Bartender:  "You wouldn't like what he drinks." 

Becky (choosing to tactfully overlook the fact that this bartender has gravely mistaken her for both a lightweight and a pussy):  "I'll bet I'd drink it anyway.  But that's okay.  I'll have what Nathan drinks."

Bartender:  "Coming right up."

Who is Nathan?  I can't tell you or I'd have to kill you.  But let's just say I was hobnobbing in some exclusive company over the weekend and that, along with my recent re-reading of some book I wrote one time, has reminded me that I used to do this sort of thing all the time and I'm not quite sure why I ever stopped.

So well played, Becky, on living it up a little.  Goal for next time:  have that drink with Nathan himself...


  1. looking forward to our next phone call : )


  2. Haha!! Reading it back, it sounds much more cryptic than I meant for it to!

    The short version is that I went to Nashville this weekend to hang out with some friends and we went to a VERY exclusive club, where many of the members are celebrities (although, tragically, no celebrities were in attendance the night I was there). There's no disguising Kid Rock's name, but "Nathan" is another celebrity and, being stumped on what to order, I totally just asked the bartender to make me someone else's drink.

    It was a good time. And reminded me of the days when I tried a lot harder than I do now to hang out with famous people!! :D

  3. Argh blogger shits me so much!!! I just wrote a huge comment and then lost it as google had logged me out....

    I was telling a story that really had no reference to your blog, I guess the biggest point was Nathan who?

  4. I can't tell you or I'd have to kill you!!!! ;) No, I'll send you an e-mail and tell you; I just didn't want to post it publicly because even though I'm guessing you're not going to even know who this person is, I don't want to give anything away about this club since the membership is exclusive and my friend just started working there and I wouldn't want to get her in trouble by giving away clues about the guest list!

    And yeah, Blogger does like to suck... :-/

  5. thankyou, i like being "in the know" ;)
