Carolina Girl (Cely)
The Bugaboo theme challenge...what does "Dog Days of Summer" mean to you...(perhaps end of summer vacation, kids going back to school, less children at the mall, etc)

Well, the following is a TRUE STORY about my friend....

       My friend lives at the beach. School was starting back for her son who would now be entering the 6th grade. She delighted in telling him how much she would be enjoying having the beach to herself and catching up on things that matter the most to her once school started. He walked away a little annoyed.
       On the first day of school, the teacher went around the room asking each student to tell something about themselves and their family. John, still being annoyed at this mom and having to return to school proceeds to say, " I like sports, my dad works for the phone company, and my mom takes long hot baths, drinks boxed wine, sits around eating bon bons and reads trashy novels."  The class had a big laugh as the teacher hurried along to the next student.  Needless to say, my friend was "the topic of converstaion" in the teacher's lounge.  And, yes, the story got back to her since she did volunteer work at the school...of course, after she had her hot bath, drank wine, ate bon bons, and read her trashy novels. 
(I'll not give names in order to protect the innocent.... and the guilty.)

This is how I came up with this card for the Bugaboo challenge.
