Bill purposely chose flying as a career so he would develop hearing loss due to aircraft engines and therefore, not hear 92 % of what I talk about. Hmpf.Grace...schmoozingGrace on the other hand has decided that she will fight fire with fire.She has been known to talk so much that I have not been able to get a word in edge wise. Thus, I have been rendered, yes, speechless. So, in an effort to express myself, I began a blog. And on this blog I talk. I speak, I bemoan, I belabor, I shout, I chat, I opine, I blabber, I yak, I flap my gums, I lecture, I jabber, I schmooze. Yes. I schmooze. S.C.H.M.O.O.Z.E. And I love every minute of it. I have a big mouth. I need a support group. "Hello, my name is Susie Q and I schmooze." Thank you dear Pea. You are a true delight! Now I am to choose 5 more bloggers who have been known to schmooze.

When I Schmooze, Do You Snooze?
Our darlin' sweet Pea has passed this delightful award on to me! Now, I am tickled pink by this as I simply love awards! I will have to look at gowns to wear for the ceremony, get my hair done and oh my! A pedicure! Does anyone know who the master of ceremonies will be? Could it be Brian Dennehy? One can live and hope can't one? Will there be awardee gift baskets? You know, the ones filled with decedent material goods worth thousands of dollars. No? Sheesh. How about a 10 percent off coupon for Burger King? OOH! Whoppers for everyone! I am also a bit confused about something. I looked up the meaning of the word *Schmooze*. FORMS : schmoozed or schmoosed also shmoozed, schmooz-ing or schmoos-ing, shmooz-ing, schmooz-es or schmoos-es shmooz-es. SLANG: to converse casually, especially in order to make a social connection. In other words, to schmooze is to talk. Now, you all know me by now. I am rather quiet and reserved. I am so very shy and delicate. I seldom speak above a hushed whisper. I never speak to strangers or talk in public. I am also a liar. A very bad liar. A huge fibber really. I DO talk, A LOT. I talk so much that poor Kipper has been known to hide under the bed, surrounding himself with Rubbermaid boxes full of wrapping paper and ribbons, just to avoid being *talked at* any longer. The cats hide in the bathtubs, praying that no one will feel unclean and discover them. In the event that someone feels the need to bathe and they are discovered, Lucy immediately drops into a cat nap like trance for hours hoping I will go away. Dan stays at work until the wee hours in hopes that Mom will be *talked out* by the time he arrives home. Then he actually pretends to be tired from working all day! Can you believe that?
