    I get home from my first day at my new job and there is a package on my doorstep from my former store. Hmmm???

    Aretha, the 'hat lady,' who always tried to one-up me with her hats, made me a neon pink hat that has studded on it - DJ Demo.

    She brought in the store to have them mail it to me. Yes, I cried.:beautifulthing::lady::missyou::sad:

    There was a little note card in it that simply said what she ALWAYS said to me..."Girl, you ain't got nothing. Now you do."

    Aw geez, Abbey. First I got teary-eyed reading about your hat...then I almost hurt myself trying to stifle a laugh when I saw your new title and picture.

    How sweet!

    Now...you know what you have to do now don't you? You have to take that hat around on you errands one day, get a picture of you wearing it every place you go and send them back to Aretha.

    Hmmmm, got a picture forming in my mind...um...yup...there it is:

    Abbey, sitting at mother in law/father in law's kitchen table eating squash pie with her spork wearing nothing but an "I'm Not Too Skinny" t-shirt, granny panties and her pink sequined hat!

    Abbey you also need to find a way to include a picture of her hat in the book. I'm thinking it would be awesome on the front cover. :D

    How sweet of her.
