That's what I was. Sixteen years old all day long from the time I went to work out this morning till this minute. I have not laughed that hard and so many times, just as hard each time, as I laughed today. Most of them were moments that "you'd have to be there" to appreciate...maybe. But it started with a dear friend having come over for lunch and beyond.
I made sandwiches, she brought a dessert she made and after having lunch, off we went to the store because the blender, a cheapie I had bought months ago was not going to really work for what I wanted it for. So...enter part one of my, hers and my adventures today.
We took off to the store and saw the 'no cruising' sign posted where we parked This was one of those "you'd have to be there" ones, but I expressed sadness and disappointed feelings as I told my friend I had every intention of asking her if she wanted to cruise the parking lot with me because I sure had it in mind! (not) We were already laughing hard when we got out of the car and all the way to and through the doors.
We calmed and went for her to get a skein of wool and for us to choose a more appropriate device with which to make my would-be smoothies rather than what I had.
There was more tear making laughter as we were walking through the aisles and one ridiculous situation or scrap of conversation after another would strike our funny bones and we'd stand there laughing hard with tears flowing from our eyes the way me and my girl friends did as teens and young moms, one with the other laughing our silly heads off. One more regret voiced by me as we went back to the vehicle that we couldn't cruise the parking lot with loud laughter from the two of us--- and we came back here to the house.
Then we washed out the container for the smoother maker and I poured in some milk, some blueberries, a few sweeteners, and 2/3's cup of ice cubes. I followed directions and pressed down on the container to start it the way you're supposed to. Nothing happened. I said "Nothing happened" so my friend commenced trying. Nothing happened. We put our backs into it by turns, and still nothing happened until simultaneously we saw at the same time that it wasn't plugged in. I swear, we were BENT over laughing and I had to get the tissue box for us to wipe our eyes and blow our noses. My belly hurts and this IS the best day I have had in a LONG time.
Smoothie turned out well. I will be PLUGGING the smoothies maker in and trying more each day.
What a great day! I sure could have used it. It's great when you have someone that you march in lock step with on opinions usually, and that you can share all manner of thoughts without concerns.
