WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #138
ARE YOU OUTA YOUR GOURD?
I ORDERED A FORD!
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!
This is my story!
1. Are you wondering how we ended up with a Chef this week? Well, I am too! How does this happen? I know you all wanted new cars! I guess the cousin of the friend of the sister of the teapotter's mother's brother's wife who's uncle's cousin's brother's best friend said he could hook us up, couldn't! Our special pricing on new cars has turned into an extra breadstick if they aren't burnt!
2. Meet MUSTANG Sally and Delores TAURUS!
As evidenced by their names, their father is a die hard SUPER-DUTY
FORD man who is frustrated because his daughters drive their FORDS
around living their life like it's a FIESTA!
They ESCAPE responsibility, live on the EDGE
, and despite their father's FLEX
ibility, they can't seem to FOCUS
on getting jobs and settling down! That's it! Their EXPEDITION
in fun is over, he's driving his F-150
down to the FORD
Dealer that he spends $42,000 a week at and making some demands! Either they hire his daughters or he's taking his business elsewhere. It's that simple!
3. As you can well imagine, MUSTANG
Sally and Delores TAURUS
know they can throw their weight around, they are the daughter's of the best Ford customer after all! That's why Marco Mancini, the incredible Italian hunk they recently met is the newest car salesman! He doesn't know a thing about cars but look at him! Does that really matter? Well, no, it didn't, not until their father ordered a new car and Marco drove up in a Chevy!
Are You Outa Your Gourd? I Ordered A Ford!
I Know You're Adored, But It's Not Quite a Ford!
To Get Off The Hook, I Hope You Can Cook!
Turns out their father is having a little get together of his closest friends to watch the Boston Bruins! This Italian hunk better know how to cater and cook or learn quick from a book!
4. Guess what? Marco can't cook and he can't find a book but he's really quite wise as he found a disquise. Looking quite different, with fat and a hat, he knows in his heart, he can play this Chef part. Rut roh! Time to get create a diversion! According to MUSTANG
Sally and Delores TAURUS
, these are the things that will keep their father's mind off the shortcomings of their Italian hunk! Bring cars, any kind just pretend they are Fords! Bring food, any kind, Italian is good, but Steak and Crab would be fab! Bring anything hockey, Boston Bruin or any. Bring football or gardening so his mood won't be hardening! Bring books or some cooks, don't worry about their looks! Bring what you can find to keep Marco off his mind!
If you drive out to the levy and bring a nice Chevy, its the back door for you!
Bring a masculine card. Bring cars, trucks, any kind. Bring hockey, football and gardening. Bring food, books, or cooks!
Destination Station #138
This week's destination is Brampton, Ontario. We will be sending our cards to Kim, the cousin of fellow SCSer/Teapotter Laurie (Virgo05).
Kim was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with stage 4 prostate cancer which has spread to his bones. Kim is young, only 41. A recent bone scan showed the cancer is in his arms, legs, spine & pelvis. Kim was relieved to find it had not spread to his other organs. He considers this a good sign. Kim has started radiation treatment as well as hormone therapy and he continues to remain positive yet realistic!
For more information including the address to mail your card, please visit the Post #193
in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread, should you decide to send your challenge card to Kim. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is strictly voluntary.
Here is my card.
Here is the awesome card
that Laurie made for her cousin, Kim.
