“We are on the edge of glory, baby. In fact, I’m the MAYOR here on the Edge of Glory!”
-Mom, declaring our location to everyone in Target who was wondering
(Ps, Along with this quote, I love Gaga, no matter what anyone says. My heart is so excited that Clarence Clemons from my favorite E Street Band plays with her on the new album! Although this version of the song has no saxophone, I adore it, simply because it proves that she is so talented, even without the costumes and “controversy”. Just her and a piano and a thousand little monsters singing along. Enjoy!)
“A grapefruit? It doesn’t even look like a grape! It’s a great pretender! THIS is what Freddie Mercury was talking about!”
-Mom, contemplating the fruit basket we received for Christmas
(Shortly after spoken, she then launched into a rendition of this classic. The video makes it ten times better.)
“We’ve decided if there’s ever an apocalypse or society goes into anarchy, we’ll survive because your dad can go out and shoot all our dinner. I think we should start hoarding bacon, because anything tastes good wrapped in bacon. We could eat tree bark wrapped in bacon!”
-Mom, on how to prepare for total world chaos
“You’re in college- this isn’t ‘real life.’ You know what real life is? A bunch of pigeons flyin’ above you. Think about it- what do pigeons do? They’re little, they’re annoying and they shit all over you. Some days you’re under a carport and it’s safe. But most days you’re out there just doing your best not to get hit.”
-Dad, on his view on the real world vs. college
I have this……habit.
You see, in this head of mine I have a little dream to be a television writer someday. Because of this, dialogue swirls around in my brain happily, I script conversations before I have them, and when I hear a wonderful phrase, I get mildly obsessed.
Unfortunately, this means I have a habit of writing down things people have said and quoting them at a later date.
Fortunately, I am apt to share them. After all, I do believe that the people I love are rockstars and deserve to be celebrated in word form!
So, without further ado, I present you the first and hopefully not last installment of Words Of Wisdom, wherein I share a quote by someone near-and-dear to me that has inspired me recently.
“All I want to do is be a Real Housewife…and make this packet of HEB Country Gravy mix. In that order.”
-Zack Wilburn, on his future hopes and dreams
