Time to tame Toni

Dear Editor:My phone started ringing earlier than usual today with my first call at 6:15 a.m. The caller on the other end sang out, “Have you seen today’s Aspen Daily News Editorial?” With my eyes still bleary and cobwebs in my brain, I answered, “Tell the paper we are done collecting all the signatures we need to get the Bar Slash X Ranch annexation for Burlingame on the ballot.”My friend reminded me Aspen City Council decided to put the question on this May’s ballot since they realized there was a lot of support for putting the question on the ballot and this was also an election year.I tried to explain to my friend it was way too early in the a.m. to have this type of political freedom of speech exercised. She did not seem to listen and told me to go out and get the paper. “OK already!” I said.So down the steps of Seasonal Burlingame Housing I tumbled as fresh snow was softly falling. In my flip flops I waddled over to the paper box with my curiosity ever so great.There it was … the editorial she woke me up about … “Time to Tame Toni.” I immediately flashed back to New Year’s Eve when I danced up a storm in my red high-heeled shoes on the mall. “I wasn’t that wild,” was I?I kept reading and realized I was not going to get in trouble for dancing in my red high-heeled shoes after all. But there was this dilemma: “What would be the best way to tame Toni?” I asked my friend.My friend replied, put on those red high-heeled shoes and ask the Aspen Daily News to bring the whip and chains. Could be quite the flogging … even for a country western two-step dancer in her red high-heeled shoes.Toni KronbergAspen
