Batten Down the Hatches- Here Comes Debby!!
Living here on the coast of southeastern North Cackalacky, we always have to keep our eye on the tropical storms, depressions and eventual hurricanes threatening our area just in case of an evacuation. Folks, I'm here to tell ya to batten down the hatches 'cause the latest one is named Debby, and them Debbys can be real bitches!!! Yeppers, if there's one person in this world you don't wanna mess around with, it's a chick named Debby. If you don't believe that, just ask any of the poor fellas who have to live with me.
Personally I have always despised the name Debbie. My mother calls me that when she's disappointed in me. Maybe it's just the way she enunciates the word, but when I hear someone say that name, it's like nails on a chalkboard to me. I prefer the name Deb. In fact, lots of my friends call me by my first and last name- "Deb Church". It rolls off the tongue quite nicely I must say. However, the name Deb is a mere derivative of "Debby", and I fully concur with the descriptors listed above for the other cool women blessed with this name.
Don't misunderstand me here. Of course I hope tropical storm Debby doesn't cause massive destruction, but I am worried about her knowing the potential she has given her name. I just hope she lives up to her namesake and makes some sort of an impact ya know. The worst impression of all, is if she fizzles out and only becomes a blip on the radar screen, 'cause that ain't like no Debby I ever met before. She's gotta at least do something spectacular before she blows out to sea.
