Could I Be A Redneck?

another weekend behind me. with 4 aliens & i made it through again. damn, i'm good. but man, am i tired. then i worked monday, btw, how was everyones memorial day? spud & honey didn't leave with the kids until almost midnight & thats late for this ole gal!!! lil sis, ranie showed up monday night with a girlfriend & they didn't leave until almost 1 am. (can you tell i started this post & then didn't get back to it for awhile?) i'm not really complaining about getting to see ranie i don't get to see her enough & it was fun but wow, i've got circles under my eyes. and they're puffy. and red. i'm sssooo ready to hit the sack.
i need some input. hubby has finally put my outside bench together. the boards are all cut & layed neatly in place but he wants me to find something 'quaint' to hold the pieces together. my answer was 'duct tape'. you know the silver tape that red greens swears by. i think it would add a touch of 'redneck' ummm class. yeah, class. and what man doesn't grunt at using duct tape? my hubby gave me that look. you know the one that you get when someone is trying to tell you with their eyes that you might be a redneck only in a nice way. he looked at me like he kinda felt sorry for me.
i had to laugh. i love duct tape. i use it frequently. granted not where it can be seen but i use it. its held drawers together for years. and my pillows or clothes until i get around to sewing them. i've closed my vents with it in the summertime & i mean, come on, its versatile! and strong!! what's up with that look?
