The luncheon in my head

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, I am meeting Natalie and Renee today. I hope I don’t say anything lame and or awkward. *looks out the window* There she is, oh I’m so nervous. *walks down the icy front steps* Don’t slip, don’t slip, don’t slip. *opens the car door*

“Hi, so nice to meet you. Hug.” Was that lame? Did I really just announce that I was going to hug her? What if she doesn’t want a hug?

“I feel like we already know each other,” Natalie says as we hug.

Okay that’s good. *looks at Natalie* Oh, she’s super cute and super cool. She’s too cool for me. Oh no, she’s going to know she’s too cool for me. I better talk incessantly so that she doesn’t have time to think about it.

“Blah, blah, blah,” I say. What am I saying? I don’t even know what I’m saying. Oh well, I’ll just keep talking because not only am I nervous, but I am really cold.

*We get to Olive Garden and the hostess leads us to a booth where we wait for Renee. I stand when Renee comes*

Wow, she’s really tall and beautiful. “Hi, so nice to meet you.” Don’t announce your hug. Just give her a hug.

“Hug.” Doh.

*We all sit and talk for a time*

This is going well. These girls are super fun.

“Blah, blah, blah, I’m not even kidding you right now,” I say. Isn’t that the fifth time I’ve said that phrase. Do I really have to tell them that I’m not kidding?

*Waiter comes by and fills my glass for the fourth time*

I don’t believe I’ve drunk four full glasses of water. I really have to go to the bathroom, but I’m not ready to leave yet. If I get up and go to the bathroom they might take it as their opportunity to ditch me. Oh, wait, Natalie is my ride, she can’t leave me.

*Waiter starts to walk by*

“Will you take our picture?” I call out. Proof. Now I will have proof that these girls hung out with me.

And here is that proof. My virtual friends turned real world friends. I had a blast, girls. (Did I really just say blast? Is that an old lady phrase? Are they going to think I’m old? I am old.)


  1. You are neither old nor a dork, you beautiful girl! I love the way you retell your life. It's always entertaining to read:) And that was way too much fun.

  2. How nice to connect with your blog friends! Sounds like you had a blast. Stopping by to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

  3. My call just went to your cell phone graveyard. :( No Christmas miracles for me this year!

  4. Nat, I never used the word dork in my post. So what are you trying to say? Am I a dork? :) Just kidding. I'm glad my craziness entertains you. I had so much fun.

    Joanne, thanks and Merry Christmas to you too.

    Candi, sorry. Thanks for answering my call even though I didn't have my cell phone on me this morning. I miss you!!

  5. Oh wow! Look who's jealous now, ME!!! Sheez! How uber cool is that? That's awesome to get to meet your online friends! I would LOVE to!

    And Ahem, just for the record... seriously,I'm glad to see you're normal. LOL! You're too cheerleader pretty/gorgeous to be considered normal just by looking at your pics. LOL! Hello? Do you have bad smile days?

  6. Jenni, I know, it was so exciting to meet some online friends. You need to watch out or you might give me a big head. :) And the only reason I do smile is because it improves my normally average looks. I love dimples. :)

  7. Isn't meeting virtual friends in real life the greatest! This has happened to me quite a bit this year and it is awesome. So glad you had a good time!

  8. Rene and Natalie said...
    Kasie, you are a dork and we never want to see you again. However, if you pay extra attention to your husband for the next week, we may forgive you and speak to you one additional time.

  9. Honey, the least you could do is spell Renee's name right, then I might sort of believe you.

    And, Britten, yes, it was the best.
