Shrimp and Grits WITH CHEESE!

Recently, I was having a conversation with my dear friend Celeste regarding my weight loss journey. She was looking at some pictures of me from my cousin's wedding. She mentioned that I looked great. She said she could see I have lost weight in my waist. I said I still thought I looked pretty heavy and this is the conversation that followed. It's funny because we are talking about two different things at once. Well, it was funny to me anyway...I will leave out the chatter before the grit convo.

Celeste: Eh. That just means it's a bigger challenge...But you've got the true grit to fight and win!!!

Me: LOL. You said grit.

Celeste: Yea, like the movie, True Grit...

Me: I have never seen it. But I still think grit is a funny word. 

Celeste: Me neither, but I know of it. Oh. I don't think it's a funny word, but ok. 

Me: It reminds me of grits. Those are gross. And to tell someone they have true grit just makes me laugh. Idk, I'm odd I guess. 

Celeste: True Grit means you won't stop fighting for your goal or your beliefs. Like in Kill Bill when Uma Thurman came back with a revenge...and she overcame the physical barriers that came from her being in a coma...
Or like in Riding in Cars with Boys.

Me: Ick. Don't talk about Kill Bill. Blech.

Celeste: How she never gave up on going to college and becoming a writer. That's true grit. 

Me: I know. But it's still funny.

Celeste: When you fall you get back up. 

Me: And it still makes me think of grits. With cheese. LMAO. Shrimp and grits.

Celeste: Even if you fall and break a leg, you still get back up...


Celeste: Even if you get decapitated. You get up! 

Me: Shrimp and Grits. WITH CHEESE!!!!

Celeste: That should be your new motto.

Me: Shrimp and Grits?

Celeste: No, Shrimp and Grits with Cheese!

Me: I should post that as my status. But then people would think I am eating that. And I would never eat that. Maybe I'll put it in my blog. It's kind of humorous.
I just realized that you said you get back up even when you get decapitated. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Celeste: LMAO
