Why Frisco Texas is exactly the same as Colorado

(this is not my friend barb. it's not me either. i never smile if there is snow on the ground.)

When I lived in Michigan, I had a wonderful friend named Barb. (everybody wave to Barb!) She helped me survive the church job I will tell you about one of these days, which is included on my resume with a note: QBIWCI. Quit Before I Went Completely Insane.


Barb moved to Colorado, where she lives happily with her wonderful family. She loves Colorado, but really she could have just moved to Texas with me!

Frisco is EXACTLY the same as Colorado. Here's why:

Colorado has four seasons: Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.

Frisco has four seasons too! Kind of Hot, Really Hot, Hotter Than You Ever Thought Possible, and Hot Enough To Melt Your Eyeballs.

Colorado has mountains.

Yeah, yeah. Big deal, Barb. Frisco has mountains too.

Ok, hills.

Oh fine. Roads that slope.

(try hiking up that slope in the middle of Hot Enough To Melt Your Eyeballs - it's not so easy, let me tell ya)

And last but not least ...

Colorado has wildlife. Moose, bears, ducks, you name it.

(he looks friendly, doesn't he?)

And, you guessed it, Frisco has wildlife too. Why, just the other day they were having a clearance sale at Neiman Marcus, or "Neiman's" as everybody down here casually calls it, with $300 t-shirts marked down to only $299! They ran out of size Triple-Zero within the first 5 minutes, as teeny little women wearing huge sunglasses and driving gigantic SUV's stormed the store.

Pretty wild.

Miss you, Barb!

Barb says you've nailed it again...including the blonde triple 0 SUV drivers, but most of them have to take their jeans in at the waist. Miss you, dear friend.

Very funny! England has 4 seasons too. Wet, not so wet, not so wet as yesterday, not as wet as it will be tomorrow. Our eyeballs don't melt, they drown.

This was hilarious.
I have a different acronym though...
RBIWCI: Retired before I went completely insane.

Is there an underlying message here? Hard to me to figure as I've only been to Texas once. Unless bushes count there weren't many rest stops with bathrooms and nobody seems to be concerned about all the trash in the ditches. Ok... we drove thru one day on our way to Phoenix.

I'm giggling! This was a hoot. I lived in Colorado for over 40 years, and now a resident of Texas. I so enjoyed this and the likely comparisons of the two states.

Barb: I'm glad you liked it! I miss you too.

Lesley said...

Fran: I've heard about your soggy weather. Amazing that you manage to have such a sunny personality!

Lesley said...

Retired One: LOL! I know what you mean.

Lesley said...

Troutbirder: No underlying message. Just being silly.

Lesley said...

Anni: Thanks! I thought you might like this one. Texas is such a unique place - and yes, it's exactly like all these other places! haha
