Secret Subject Swap: Thelma and Louise


Welcome to Secret Subject Swap, the brainchild of Karen at Baking in a Tornado. Karen gathered 17 bloggers together for this edition! We each picked a secret subject for someone else to write about, and were assigned a secret subject of our own in turn. Today, we're all simultaneously posting the results.


My subject was dreamed up by Suburbia Interrupted. Her challenge: "Thelma and Louise. Pick one person that you follow on twitter as your partner in crime."

I laughed when I read that, because it's so obvious. When I told my husband, he laughed at what an easy question that was, and he's not even on social media. 

@sleepybard would absolutely be my Louise.

Now, I admit, I've only seen the movie once, as a kid, and I'm not even sure that I watched the whole thing. But figured I pretty much got the whole gist of it. Just to make sure I wasn't totally off-base, I did a little research by way of IMDb and Wikipedia. It seems that while both of the ladies are hilarious badasses, Louise is slightly hilariouser and badassier, so @sleepybard gets that honor. It's okay, Thelma has cuter hair, and she gets to bang a young Brad Pitt. I can live with that.

@nehokie and I are always trying to get @sleepybard to come visit us up here in Massachusetts, and if she pulled up one day in an old convertible, yelling at us to get in, I can't tell you that I'd be too surprised. I assume that we'd go to Salem in that convertible, rather than Mexico. She loves witches and pirates even more than Grumpy Cat, and Salem is the witch-and-pirate capital of America.

I don't imagine that I'd ever rob a convenience store, and I sure as hell wouldn't go dancing at a cowboy bar, but I know for damn sure that if some redneck ever tried to rape me, @sleepybard wouldn't think twice before pulling the trigger.

I'm smart enough to know that you never marry a guy called Darryl, so I'm sure I'd never find myself in Thelma's shoes, but all the same, it's good to know that I have a Louise who's got my back. If you're in need of a Twitter-Louise in your life, I highly recommend that you follow her, too.

Wasn't that fun? Why not read the other 16 posts? You've got all weekend to catch up, after all...

And all the others:
