I went to lunch today with 2 of my best pals from many moons ago… back when we all were popping zits (EWWWWW) and hormoning around… oh, was that just yesterday? I’ve known Alena and Joanne since I was about 10 or 11. I was pretty much a horrid friend… but they put up with me being moody and full of the teenage stubborn bone… even though I’m sure most of the time they’d have rather slugged me in the head with a ball bat. Despite all that, we did manage to have some fun times back in them days. Some of my most memorable:
– Having a sleepover at another friend’s house that Alena could not attend, so we all ganged up and toilet papered her house that night. A gaggle of giggling teenage girls, throwing toilet paper into the trees. We got our payback when we got back to the house, fell asleep on the trampoline, and woke to everyone vomiting all over everyone else. Served us right, right Joanne? I felt so guilty, the next morning I went to Alena’s house to help her clean up the toilet paper mess!
– The drink game. The object of the drink game was to make the most disgusting drink possible using anything in the cupboards and refrigerator and then the other person would have to drink it. Thankfully, my gag reflex made that game over in 25 seconds.
– Dressing up our little sister’s Barbie dolls to make them more “modest.” We’d basically just put every piece of Barbie clothing they owned on the doll, which would in turn piss Lindsay and Emma off. Stupid evil mean sisters anyway!
– The lame physical education tests we had to do… that one where you sit on the floor with your legs straight out, feet against a box, and you had to see how far you could move the ruler!? Um… what!? What happens when you can’t even reach the ruler!? Joanne never had that problem, being a sports playing savant! Alena and I would have rather played the drinking game.
It was fun to catch up with my pals. Alena is moving to some state in the midwest I’ve never heard of (:P) and Joanne is expecting her 4th child any day now (I’m sending you birthing vibes, Joanne… start the incising process now!), so our get togethers will now be far and few between. Y’all gals best sign up for Facebook and for goodness sakes… send me pictures of the chillin’s every once in a blue moon. Alena, when you up and move to Behrut, make sure you send me a text message!! I promised I wouldn’t post the farewell pictures we took on my blog and I’m a woman of my word… so just picture 2 beautiful, kind, hard-working women, and you’ll pretty much have them nailed! Thanks for the memories, ladies!
Question of the Day: Do you keep in contact with any of your friends from the olden days?
