Happy Thoughts:


Woh Black Betty

So all my life, for as long as I can remember, people have always sang songs to me when I tell them my name. In Texas I always went by Marie, my middle name, but now I have been going by Betty lately. It's just easier when I meet people on face book to let them call me Betty, than trying to explain to them (and have them remember) that I go by Marie.

When I was younger, school teachers, and random people, along with my bosses when I started working would sing songs to me including Brooks & Dunn - My Maria (which I always found weird since my name is Marie) Then I had a boss who would ALWAYS sing this song called Marie Laveau which was really weird since my maiden name is Love. 

So, the point is we went out the other night to this bar called Hennessys, and we had an AWESOME time. 

Both the bands were amazing. The one downstairs was called "Spike the Punch" and he was goig around singing to several people there, when he got to me and I told him my name he started singing "Woh Black Betty..." I laughed so hard because it's not what people normally sing to me, but it was still funny to know that no matter where I go it happens!

It was great to be out and having a good time, it was the first time since my lover deployed that I felt I could really unwind and relax which I really needed. We had several drinks and stayed til the last train was about to leave and we had to make our way back home, & I promise, we were not as wasted as we look in this picture! 


  1. I'm glad that you were able to have such a great time!!! Your trip has looked like so much from what you've posted :)

  2. Your trip looked like a ton of fun! Now I have that song stuck in my head.

  3. Looks like a lot of fun! I have friends that go by their middle names, and I didn't know for years! haha
