Peach State says: Here’s Your Sign!

It happens to each of us every day! Those little remarks that slip out of the mouth before bouncing around through the brain first! You know those little remarks…the ones that make you shake your head and wonder why that person bothered to get out of bed. But, how many of us would admit that we have let brainless pings fly out of our mouths…”Yep…me too!” “Here’s Your Sign!”

It was Sunday morning and I was standing on the staging area with a microphone in my hand. A member of the church walks up and waits to speak with the pastor and looks up at me…”You singin’ today?” I replied…”No…The mic stand needed to run to the bathroom and ask me to hold the Mic.”
Here’s Your Sign!

I recently went into my local Starbucks. There was a line and we were informed that they were training. A few people left and I moved up…I finally reached the counter and the young man smiled and said…”Would you like coffee today?” Being who I am and the fact that a friend of mine was doing the training I smiled and said…”No…I would like 2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun please!” My friend the manager giggled and said…Here’s Your Sign! then she introduced us…This young man now calls me by name and has my drink prepared before I can pay!


I was making Enchiladas last night for dinner. Everything was on the counter as I began the assembling. My youngest walks into the kitchen and says “You fixing dinner?” wait for it…”Oh goody…I love your lasagna!” I smiled and said…”No, I thought I would see how long this would take to prepare and cook so I would know when to start it tomorrow!”. Here’s Your Sign!”

I have a son that works at a local gym. It is a large franchise with a specific dress code…complete with logo attire. He was coming from his office and saw someone he went to school with coming in with his dad. As he walked over to them as his friend said “Hey…you work here?” My son just looked at him and said Here’s Your Sign!” The friend could not believe he had fallen onto the trap.

These are just a few of the many “Here’s Your Sign!” stories from my family. Take a closer look and you will be amazed to see these brainless pings are bouncing through your life too. Please share…and Have a great day!

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.

  1. Ha, ha! Those were funny! You know me well enough by now to know that I should have a gazillion “Here’s Your Sign” stories to tell on just myself! But, thankfully, God has BLESSED me with the gift of forgetfulness! If I think of any on myself, or on anyone else, or experience one soon, I will post later….

  2. I did notice, but I didn’t really want to say anything…Ha, ha! I’d better be careful, you may remember a couple of mine!
