Sometimes a girl needs Boomama back up

Date August 17, 2008

Dear Boomama,

I didn’t know who else might sympathize the way that you would.  We are kindred spirits, you know.  How could we not be?  Southern girls, Mississippi born and raised.  Bulldogs by choice.  MA-ROOON!  WHITE!  See the spirit?  Do you FEEL the spirit?  I have it.  You have it.  WE have it, Boomama!

So, the thing is, kindred spirit of mine, I live in a third world country.  There’s no Target.  No Wal-Mart.  No Kroger.  Can you imagine?!  But I came home to good ole Mississippi for awhile and brought back with me the bread of our shared land.  Cheeze-Its.

Yes, Cheeze-Its, Boomama.  I rationed them well.  I, for once, had some semblance of self-control.  But now, they are gone.  The last crumb eaten.  The box empty on the kitchen counter.  And my heart is sad.  (okay, it’s more like my stomach, but you get the picture.  And seriously, “my heart is sad” invokes so much more feeling, don’t ya think?)

So, Boomama, connoisseur of Cheeze-Its, show mercy on my afflicted, starving (okay, not so much starving) belly.  Send Cheeze-Its.  Soon.  Or peanut butter.  I KNOW you, Boomama.  You love peanut butter, and diet cokes on ice! You love anything cheese.  You feel my pain.  Only you could.

I’m checking the mail already.  I am.  Because I have faith in bloggy friends.  I do.  I have faith in YOU, Boomama.


Your bloggy friend Emily

P.S.  Annie, you’ve actually met Boomama.  YOU know me.  We’re real never-seen-each-other friends.  I’m calling Jeff for you.  Because I love you that much.  So, you call Boomama, would ya?  And either persuade her to SEND IN THE CHEEZE-ITS or to tell her, you know, um.  Well, to tell her that I’m not so much crazy as tired of rice.  Thanks.

    My name is Christopher Cambell and I am a Junior at Moody Bible Institute, studying Communication. I am doing something of a research project and was wondering if you would like to participate. The study is of Christian females who blog online. Your name will never be used, but your words may be quoted (as an anonymous surveyor of course) in a paper. If you are interested, please email me your responses to these questions at CHRISTOPHER.N.CAMBELL@MOODY.EDU

    1) If someone were to ask you to describe yourself, how would you describe yourself?

    2) Is this affected by your affiliation with Christianity? If so, how?

    3) What is the purpose of your blogging online?

    4) Do you believe the purpose is consistently accomplished?

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    Thank you and have a nice day,
    Christopher Cambell

    As I read this I could just see you in a major Cheez It fit needing to be slapped out of the trance it had put you in.

    I hope Boomama comes through for you….for you own sanity!

    Love Ya
