PeaceBang Turns One Today, Dec. 26th!
I had no idea what a blog was until Rebecca told me about hers, which she began on Blogspot.com as a way of keeping friends in touch with her baby (then known as Baby Sparkle, as she wasn't yet born).
We were out for ice cream following dinner, and as pal Steve and I were waiting in line I said to the cashier, "He's paying." Steve, ever swift on the uptake, said, "PeaceBang!" I repeated, as to a dunce, "HE'S PAYING," and he repeated, ever more cheerily, "PEACEBANG!"
"WHAT are you talking about?" I asked him. "I thought that's what you were saying!" he responded. I said, "No, you big blonde fool! You. are. paying. He's Paying. Get it? Get out your wallet. And what's PeaceBang, anyway?" "I don't know," he said. "I thought it was some kind of toast, like you would clink your glasses together and say 'PeaceBang!'"
We both had a huge laugh, I got a free ice cream cone and a great name for my blog, and Rebecca got a great new baby, so everyone made out very well in the end.
Thanks for reading, PeaceBangers.
