More Ham

Today I told my six-year-old she was so sweet I could eat her. She leveled me with one of those are-you-kidding-me-because-you-have-no-idea-how-this-world-works-and-I-do kind of stares. Then with a straight face she said, "Eat Kid B instead. He has more ham."

I choked back a laugh and tried to keep my face neutral. It was hard, but I managed it before I asked, "Why does Kid B have more ham than you?"

She graced me with the same are-you-kidding-me stare and said, "Because he's bigger than me."

This got me thinking about having more ham. But not in the Oh-my-gosh-I-just-stepped-on-the-scale-and-I-have-more-ham kind of way. I'm talking the little extra umph some people seem to have. The pizazz kind. It's like Alice in the movie Alice In Wonderland. We're talking muchness with a rabbit kind of ham.



And I want some. In every aspect of my life. Writing, momming, wifeing, even cleaning (crazy talk, I know). I want to attack my life and have it be ham. Loads and loads of ham. We're talking this:



not this:



So, today is the day that I will get more ham. How about you? Do you want more ham?

Oh yeah. I definitely want more ham, especially in my writing. =)

LeishaMaw said...

Carolyn, Yup. Ham. Piles of it. It will be awesome. :)

ktjack said...

You have lots of ham, Leisha! In everything you do!
I would like more ham in my life, especially if it comes with more energy!

LeishaMaw said...

Ktjack, I don't think I've ever been so happy to have someone say I have lots of ham. Thanks. Same thing right back at you. :)

Suey said...

Sign me up! I want more! :)

LeishaMaw said...

Suey, I'll start a list and pass it around. Me, Carolyn, ktjack, and Suey. Hams. Big Hams. Ah, such good company. :)

Okay, you got me laughing! Thanks! Between you and your daughter's wonderful imaginations, I give you the 'ham of the year' award (the good kind)!

Shallee said...

Lol, love this! I definitely want more ham in everything I do. You've got very creative kids. :)

Clancy said...

Oh Babe, do I need more ham right now. Feeling the hamness wash over me as I type. Thanks for the much needed kick in the ham I needed.

Clancy said...

Ok, in reviewing my redundancy, I may have gotten carried away by my ham. I'll try to keep my ham high but a little under control.
: )

LeishaMaw said...

Jonene, ham of the year? Sweet with pickle relish. I'm so honored. :)

Shallee, I'll take creative. It's better than what I was thinking yesterday as I retrieved stuffed animals from trees. Thanks!

Clancy, anytime you need a kick in the ham, let me know. The technical name for this kicking move is called a pork chop btw. And yes, that was bad, I know.

You guys are all on my ham list. :)

LeishaMaw said...

Clancy, there can never be too much ham. It's Ham Muchness Day.

I want more ham. In writing, in confidence, in happiness.

Here's to ham!

LeishaMaw said...

L.T., here, here! Hamness here we come.

I think you are having a flashback of the three pigs of last October. This could get out of control. Maybe a cold compress to the head and a lay down would help about now. If you start writing in rhyme about strange creatures named Mop and Top I will know you are full of green eggs and ham.

LeishaMaw said...

Anita, he he he! So very funny!

Texasblu said...

This is priceless! Absolutely! And baby, you got ham!!! =D
