A couple of weeks ago I got an email from one of my LA girls (also named Nikki, which means she’s fabulous) with the subject line “Random and possibly inappropriate question”.
Of course my first thought was, okay…you’ve got my attention.
This email asked if 1. I’d read 50 Shades of Grey and 2. If I had enjoyed it and since I like rodeo (read: cowboys), had I heard of the Rough Riders series. Huh, well that’s funny. The author, Lorelei James, is going on a girls trip I’m taking for PBR Nashville in September. So, yeah…I might have heard of it. And I might be about to start book six in the series, but it’s whatever.
“With all the talk about rodeos and cowboys, of course I thought of you. That’s so cool that you’re going to meet her. Maybe you can become a character in her next book!! ”
Go ahead readers, have a field day with that. Cause I know you will. I am looking at you, Shannon.
Platinum Annie: I think you could teach Lorelei a thing or six… Sidenote: When I read Cat Johnson books I think of either myself or Nikki at some various stage in our life. It’s like that woman lives in our drunken memories.
Anyhow, I got another email from Nikki today. She’s apparently flown through the Rough Riders series and is “ready to start dressing her husband in wranglers and a cowboy hat and tell him to call her Little Darlin’”
Please note her husband reminds me of Kelly Slater, the professional (and hot) surfer. So I’d pay money to see that, but moving on…
She seems to be very excited about all of my upcoming PBR-related trips (I don’t think I’ve told here there are THREE of them, she might explode). These were her words of advice:
1. While at the PBR, if you meet a cowboy with the last name McKay, for the love of god sleep with him! I don’t care if it’s just one night, it will apparently be mind blowing and worth whoring it up for the night
If I meet a real-life McKay, it won’t be just for one night, Little Darlin’. You can bet on THAT.
PA: hmmmm…. I haven’t met a McKay, but I’ve met McOneNightStand and McFling and (sorry, protecting the names of the naughty) Side note: McFling rocked my world. <dreamy sigh> Now there’s a night worthy of plotting in one of Lorelei’s or Cat’s books.
2. Don’t be afraid of ropes or bull whips
I got this.
PA: Yes, ropes and whips are easier to handle than handcuffs and chains…or so I hear. Horse reins work nicely too. Wait, did I say that out loud? Snap!
3. Take lots and lots of pictures because I want to see these cowboys!
Um, I’ll see what I can do.
PA: 1) Wait, what? Pictures of your night with 50? Wouldn’t that be a bit tmi to give to a friend? Cuz we know they’d be porno pics.
2) Do we need to discuss the rule about no photographic evidence that can come back to haunt you, Crazy Little Annie?
3) Oh wait, does she just mean pictures of hot cowboys? Cuz we can get her those while visiting Rehab Ranchette & Laundromat–no event necessary.
CLA: or…4) WTH have you met me?! No photographic evidence EVER. And you know I’m not allowed to “put anything on the computer”. *eye roll* She just means pictures of the cowboys. We gots those.
AND FOR THE RECORD, READERS, THERE HAS BEEN NO NIGHT WITH 50. #thatisall
Anyhow, Nikki’s parting words were…”girl, if I would’ve known about this earlier, I would’ve set my college major to buckle bunny.”
PA: Yes, if I’d only know not to waste my youth playing with the Dallas kinda cowboys and had discovered real cowboys sooner…. Snap! There I go again writing things out loud!
Damn, I love my friends.
PA: I love your friend too. And I love us. The End.
