Jimmy Buffet! Well paint me red and call me a hot pepper! I flat can’t believe you’re sittin’ up here on my porch on a Saturday night! Wow! Dedicate a song to the Biz Buzz! Hit it! “Another Saturday night and I ain’t got no money.
Bank fees snatched my paycheck soon as I got paid. How I wish I had someone to talk to I’m in an awful way.” Amen Jimmy! I was flat broke before I even knew I was flat broke! I mean I ain’t got diddly squat! Honey . . . I’m talkin’ broke as in mac-n-cheese-it’s-what’s-for dinner-every-night broke! That’s why I’m spendin’ Saturday night on my ding dang porch cryin’ into my heavily discounted red wine instead of goin’ on a road trip with Momma!
Oh . . . never mind! I’ve got to stop wiggin’ out like the mind-blowing’ brokeophobic that I am! I’m just gonna keep my piddly pay check money (and I do mean piddly) under the mattress from now on! No deposit holds. No overdraft fees! Yeah!
Right! So pretty soon I’ll have me enough money saved up for a new pair of stylin’ kicks! And not a moment too soon ‘cause y’all we’re gettin’ us a brand spankin’ new rockin’ shoe store! I kid you not! Madisonian Vicky Hunt is openin’ Barkin’ Dog Shoe Company in Madison in mid-October at 125 West Washington Street where Mulberry Toys is located. As y’all know, Mulberry Toys is movin’ to Main Street! Anyway, Vicky says Barkin’ Dog Shoe Company is gonna sell fabulous, healthy, comfy, sexy, fun shoes! Yay!
Oh my gosh y’all! Barkin’ Dog is even gonna sell those fancy dance mTB shoes that help you tone up and burn more calories while you just walk up the street! They’re oh so cool. Ok! So other brands will be: Birkenstock, Clarks, Dansko, Earth Shoes, NAOT, Finn Comfort and more! Can’t wait! Y’all keep watchin’ the Buzz for more on this high-steppin’ story!
