I know you've been asking yourself lately: "How can I make a complete idiot out of myself? I know, I'll go to Kasie's blog to find out. I heard she's good at that." And you'd be right. I am excellent in the art of embarrassing myself. So here goes. I will help you start on your journey. First you have to develop a habit of trying to breathe and swallow simultaneously. It's quite a hard habit to develop, but once you get the hang of it, it comes quite naturally. Next you have to be sitting next to a complete stranger on an airplane and he has to ask you a question while you are taking a big gulp of water. Then you must breathe that big gulp of water into your lungs instead of swallowing it. Finally, you must choke and gag and cough on the water for five minutes. Your eyes will be pouring tears, your lungs will be burning, and the passenger next to you will have a concerned look on his face and ask you several times if you are okay. And voila, embarrassment for all involved.
I had the best weekend with Candi. We stayed up late every night talking. I read a few books (I'll review one or two of them on Wednesday), we made a trip to Cincinnati, went shopping, played Settlers, and saw a movie (the Vampire's Assistant--very good). It was awesome. I'm missing her already.
I am SO jealous you guys got to see each other! SIGHReplyDelete
I'm not jealous of the water spluttering, though. ;)
Do you and Candi get taken for sisters? You look so much alike.ReplyDelete
Glad you had fun! I wanna hang out with Candi and you again. Sigh.ReplyDelete
Michelle, I know, we all need to get together again soon. I think Candi's planning a trip to UT in February for the LTUE conference. You guys in?ReplyDelete
Heather, all the time! People ask if Candi is my sister more than they ask if my real sisters are. :) We claim each other at this point.
Natalie, I know, we want to hang out with you again too. Soon. Did you see what I asked Michelle above? You too. If you guys can't go to the conference we should at least hang out one night until early morning hours and insanity seeps in.
Michelle, Natalie, I want to hang out with you guys too!! That writer's retreat was just way too much fun. Now I feel the need to have one all the time!ReplyDelete
Kasie, It was an awesome book-reading, movie-watching, treat-eating, late-night-laughing weekend! I miss you already and so does Benjamin. He keeps reminding me that Kasie gave him his red Pokeman ball. :) By the way, did he take that new profile picture? Do I have a budding photographer on my hands?
I have a friendship like that and we describe each other as the sister we choose.ReplyDelete
Looks like you had a great time.
Great pics - you two are completely adorable. I love your advice on making a fool of yourself. I could do at least a month's worth of blog posts on this. (Light bulb! Book idea!!)ReplyDelete
I am so glad you had an awesome birthday and am only a little jealous of all the fun you had. I can't wait to see you guys again. Late night insanity is my specialty. ;)ReplyDelete
And because my swine flu so rudely made me miss your birthday post...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LADY!!! :D
Candi, yes, that is the picture your son took. :) He has a future in photography for sure. And I don't believe I forgot about the "treat-eating" part. :) Cold stone....yummy.ReplyDelete
Patti, it was awesome, thanks.
Debra, isn't it funny we could think of a book for everything? You should definitely write that book.
Jenn, swine flu is so rude. Doesn't it ever think about me or my needs? We missed having you there too.
I'm testing my new blogspot blog. :)ReplyDelete
You have another blog??ReplyDelete
I am absolutely delighted that you posted how to make a fool of yourself. I thought I was doing it wrong. You've helped me see clearly that I have not been.ReplyDelete
Looks like the perfect trip! I did a double take b/c you guys look so much like sisters!!ReplyDelete
