The Birthday Girl
The Soul Sisters gathered at our favorite "nook" in our favorite restaurant to celebrate The Treat Girl's birthday last night and what a hoot! It was the first time all 5 of us had been together in months and we talked and laughed away our precious few hours.
Treat Girl opened my gift of a giant "M" and a wishing necklace to get her through some changes that may be upcoming.
More laughing and ridiculous ordering of drinks such as "Can I have Pinot Grigio ... in a glass?" WHAT?!? This dissolved us in laughter, so, from that point on we all ordered everything in a similar fashion "Chicken tortilla soup ... in a bowl, please." Or "I'll have the Naked Lamb Roll, and could you put that on a plate, please?" "Thanks for the Blue Moon, I'm so happy you remembered to put it in a glass!" Our waiter was about 60% entertained, 20% annoyed, 30% confused, and 10% bad at math, as am I.
After all the antics, he delivered our order, and it looked like this:
We were stunned into silence then dubbed it "Dog Dick on a Stick" and Treat Girl attempted to eat it amidst much camera flashing (is there no dignity?):
Finally, to wrap up the evening, my hand grazed my chin and I swear I felt a beard! Further investigation revealed a long hair that had been laying low while growing under my chin...more camera flashes and laughter through tears ensued:
It may have been a Wednesday night, but we treated it like Friday for our Treat Girl! Happy birthday, friend!
My girlfriend came over to refill my estrogen reserves last week, and brought with her a fantastic craft for us to do together while chat...
Don't you love it when a friend shows up at the door with a shoebox full of Lifesavers, jellybeans, and ribbon and teaches you someth...
