Life in the Lowcountry

We’re constantly getting in new items at the store. Most of it is very beautiful outdoor furniture, pots and plants. Some of it is “kitch” or accessory items. The other day we received such a shipment and in particular there were theses two “orbs” which are the size of basketballs and are covered in shells. They weigh close to 30 lbs. each and are not at all “kid-friendly.” I think they’re hideous.

Louis (a friend of the owner) came into the store today and I asked his opinion of the ‘shell’ decorations we’d gotten in. If he could’ve been honest he’d have said ‘They’re hideous! Run and hide the children, these orbs will kill us all!’ But as it stands he graciously said, “Well I am sure SOMEONE will buy them. They could go to one of those Kiawah homes. They love shells in Kiawah.”

Princess coined a new phrase of the ‘Myrtle Beach easiness’ in reference to not only the orbs but also to the wall sconces bejeweled in shells. πŸ™‚

We’ve had another hot man sighting. To be sure there are a lot of good looking men that come into the store, most of them with their wives. Occasionally we’ll see the stray single guy there just to buy a present for a girlfriend or a ‘girlfriend’ but it’s when the Adonis walks in straight (or gaily forward) from the gym and saunters around the store that all the hens get their feathers ruffled. “ADAM Code 1, ADAM Code 1” can be heard squawking over the two-ways when such an auspicious occasion arises. Depending on who calls the hens to the yard any number of variety of our employees could show up to help this person. Say for instance I sound the alarm then all the boys come running. If Kay sounds the alarm, the only two straight guys come running. It’s a fun place to work!

OK – I must find a way to casually and effortlessly incorporate the phrase “Myrtle Beach Easiness” into my everyday conversation. Today, for example, at the DMV, I could have said to my road sign/eye exam administrator…”Eunice, has anyone ever told you that you smack your Juicy Fruit with a Myrtle Beach easiness?”.

I can only picture the orbs – too funny. Don’t let Ed and Peggy see them for they will have to add them to the “spider” garden collection. Just kidding.

Keep blogging – I’m your only reader! πŸ™‚
