"YEEE HAW!" or "Funny dreams"

My family had pulled over during a road trip and had set up a bit of a picnic so we could eat. It was along a rural road and it was hot and muggy and we sat under a tree which was making a half hearted attempt to create some shade. As we sat there an RV so ostentatious it looked like it had bred with with Liberace's limo...white, chrome, gold with diamond studded bumpers, pulled alongside next so us, so close it almost clipped the card table we had set up.

One of the side windows opened...it was hard to see inside though the dark screen but a woman looked at me tiredly and asked where they were. I could feel the condescending attitude reeking from the RV limo.

With no thought and with the loudest most obnoxious voice I could muster, I leaned in close and right in the shaded woman's face bellowed, "YEEEEEE HAW!!! YER IN TEXAS!!!!"

I could feel her wince.

"Oh," she said faintly. "We're from Atlantic City."

Pause.

"Are you from here?" she asked.

"YEEEEEE HAW!!! AH'M FROM TEXAS!!!"

I moved aside so the people who I guess wanted directions could talk to my dad and I heard him say in an obnoxious fake drawl, "YES MA'AM! AH'M FROM TEXAS TOO!!!"

I couldn't help but start giggling at all of this.

I overheard Mark lean over and whisper to my mom, "Dad's not very good at this..."
Mom looked embarassed and a bit weary and said, "He doesn't know very much about Texas."

"That's okay," I said, "We'll just talk really loud and act dumber than posts and these folks'll never know the difference."

I was laughing like mad at all of this...until my own laughing woke me up.

I started today with a serious fit of the giggles.

I have NO idea where all of this came from...but it was SO much fun to lean into that woman's pretentious RV and holler right in her face, "YEEEEHAH! I'M FROM TEXAS!"

Note: I am NOT from Texas. I lad a quick layover there once in 2000 and before then my family once drove through on our way to Utah.

Note 2: I do not think Texans are all red necked yokels... in my dream it was more, "Let's act this way because it's what these snobby people expect."

I love it when I have a dream I wake up laughing from. The other day I woke half the way up looked at Vince and said "donde esta aqui?" and went back to sleep.

I still don't know what that was about.

From your Texas LJ friend....Howdy y'all
I would have loved to have had your dream instead of mine...I woulda woked up laughin too...(I said that in Texan in case y'all was wonderin!)

I have lived in either El Paso(which is almost out of Texas), San Antonio, and Nawlins...The first time I actually heard Texas Hick was when I went to BYU and my Roommate walked in the Door. She was from Crane Texas and her daddy was in ol(oil). People at BYU would ask us where we were from and we would both say Texas and then they would ask me where my accent was...I would tell them I was from the civilized part of Texas and we were not allowed to talk that way.

Great Dream!!!

yeah that's funny. Also I've nver heard the words pretentious and condescending refer to the owners of an rc before. ha ha ha I just think of people living in those things in trailer parks.


Much better than my dream though I was following a friend of mine who is a clown over precarious rope bridges and dark creepy trails through the woods. Plastic bones and plastic skulls were littered about and I had to move very fast to keep up with my friend then we got to where the trail stipped in front of a couple of tunnels going different directions. In one was a huge mean rt looking at us and in the other was a small black stag with big antlers and red eyes which charged us. My friend bolted and i quickly tried to back away but not fast enough and the stag chomped onto my hand with it's teeth and wouldn't let go. I kept trying to wrestle my hand free from it's mouth and it's painful large teeth. I said " what' with this freakish dear or goat thing?"..but my friend as he ran way said "no no, that's Death". I thought well that can't be good. and then i woke up.
