A Welcome to My Daughter

My daughter, TP, wanted me to inform you that she'll be making comments from now on as "anonymous". Some of you may have noticed that she made a small comment in my last post - just a simple "hi mom".

So, I wanted to officially welcome my most favorite lurker of all time - my "anonymous" daughter, TP. I am sure you'll enjoy reading her comments and observations. If you wish, please leave a comment welcoming her to my blog. Maybe I'll even ask her to write a post now and then!

I love you, TP!!!! Now, sweetie, after you read this, it's time to hit the books again!

TP, welcome to your Mom's blog. Now, to get the straight "dope" from someone who's a contemporary of your mother's...

What I did/learned my freshman year in college:

1. Participated in a number of panty raids on several women's dorms and sorority houses. The occupants were willing participants in the raids. Resistance is futile!

2. Hosted a number keg parties/co-ed softball matches that ended in contact sports other than softball.

3. Met some really nice young women who laughed at my jokes (the first rule of compatibility).

4. Engaged in all-night "Bull Sessions" on such burning questions as "If Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump 'got together and got busy', what spawn of Satan would they produce?"

5. Answered the question: If I slap shot a tennis ball with a hockey stick as hard as I can, will it shatter the glass in the lounge picture window? Yes, it will.

6. Beer: A Health Food? Answer: Sometimes.

7. If I work the midnight-to-8 am shift as a disc jockey at the campus radio station, can I curse on the air at 3 am and get away with it? Answer: &^%$### right, I can!

8. Grass, cut it or smoke it? Answer: What was the question?

I strongly advise you to benefit from the bad example set by your mother's and my generation and act responsibly. If you do, you won't turn out like your mother. Or, God forbid, me.

Hi TP,

I'm a *little* younger than your mom and in college I... well, I think I'll just leave you to ponder Kevin's comments.

I'll just say "Hello" and ask 1 question. Since you've been lurking here for a while, have you seen a whole new side of your mom?

Just curious.

Kevin Thanks for the advice but you know I would love to turn out like my mother she is a wonder full lady who cares very deeply about her family and God. Your advice made me laugh it was good advice and some of it I am already seeing but as I live in an all women dorm I don't think there will be any panty raids lol. thanks again for the advice.

6pence thanks for saying hi and in answer to your question I have been lurking around this page since mom started writing and yes I do see a whole different side of her then what I see at home of course I know that I am suppose to because this is her page for her thoughts and I love visiting it. Thanks again for saying hi.

Hi Paula.

Mom thanks for writing about me lurking around but you know I don't have time to do an entire entry on your page so I am going to just write long comments and talk to your friends if they say something to me through the comments but thanks for the offer
Love ya and I will talk to you soon.

TP

Greetings, TP! I have 2 kids in college, and one who is a sr. in HS, so your mom and I are similar in "life stages." She is a wise and compassionate lady with God as her center!(That's why I like her blog and her sense of reality and encouragement!) Hope you are doing well at college with all the intense studying/projects, etc. it requires.

Kevin - TP and I had a LONG talk about your post. :-) My freshman year was nothing like what you described. Of course, you knew that because you know that I was a perfect angel and didn't participate in any of those kinds of activities, other than laughing at a cute guys' jokes. So There! I did touch my heart very much that TP said she would ver much like to become like me.

6pence - That was a great question to ask TP!!!! Thanks!

Paula - Looking forward to talking to you! I love you, too, my friend.

TP - that's okay if you don't want to write a full post - but it would be fun for you to add your comments now and then. And thank you, sweetie, for what you said about wanting to be like me - that brought tears to my eyes. I love you so much, babe.

Shawnda - Perhaps TP will listen to you! I'll have her come over to your site for a visit so she can get to know your family. I'm sure she'd love them.

Hi Jodi - Glad you made a comment. TP's studying a lot right now, and trying to figure out whether or not to do pledging for a sorority. Lots of tough decisions for her to make!
