Next weekend I am heading to Vermont for the annual family girls’ weekend at my cousin’s ski house. I am making chili, mushrooms for crostini, and maybe tortilla soup. Oh, and I sampled some crab dip at Costco today that I may have to go back and buy. (It was good enough for entertaining.) Anyway, plans are underway and we are all looking forward to the weekend and thinking about what to bring. Text messages are flying around.
Me to Donna and Kristina: I will bring the vodka this time.
D to me: Great. I will bring this lemonade soda thingy Linds bought that mixes well.
Me to D: Sounds delish. I’ll also bring tomato juice, etc. for bloodies.
D to me: I’m trying to think of a good app to bring.
Me to Kristina (ski house owner): Do you have Yahtzee and Scrabble up there?
K to me: No.
Me to K: Okay. I’ll bring Yahtzee. I’ll ask Liz to bring Scrabble. Do you need a good book to read?
Me to Liz: Will you bring Scrabble next weekend?
Liz to me: You wanna get your ass whooped?
Me to Liz: yeah right
I can’t wait!
