Blow Me Away

“I’m as happy as a tornado in a trailer park.” – Anonymous

So a tornado went over my house last week.

No trips to Oz but I’m hanging on to my ruby red slippers.

A girlfriend was with me at my house when it happened. But I do not have a storm cellar. Mostly because it’s a good place for RATS and SNAKES to seek shelter during tornado season – and I’d rather face a tornado than get cozy with one of them.

We also couldn’t use my bathtub for a safe place because I have an outer glass bathroom window. But I like this idea because, after you've been covered with tornado debris, you can immediately wash off and look great for any rescue workers stopping by. Who knows….a WHIRLWIND romance could be in store!

No, after watching all the big red weather blobs on the weather station’s radar screen, my girlfriend and I hopped in the car to drive to a safe place. The only excitement, however, was on the road when I ran into the car in front of me while trying to take pictures of the tornado out the window. OOPS!

And, while one touched down just a few miles from my house, Moore, Oklahoma is really their favorite gathering place. Evidently, they like to meet there and have a few drinks before madly heading out to other places in the Midwest to throw cows and mobile homes around. Crazy things.

Some call tornados acts of god. Well, god must really be trying to air out or stir up Oklahoma politics (god knows we need it). And all I can say is – LOOK OUT Indiana! Be on a tornado watch!

Meanwhile, I’m thinking of having a girlfriends’ get together to put the shingles back on my roof. Afterwards I’ll serve a TORNADO cocktail – and put a plastic cow in it for shits and giggles. But I’ll make everyone come down before I serve it.


1 oz. whiskey
1 oz. rum
1 oz tequila
1 oz vodka
½ tbsp. sugar
2 oz cola
ice cubes

Mix the liquors and sugar in a glass. Drop in some ice cubes and then pour in the coke. Stir twice. Serve.
