Feeling the Burn
It's pretty typical in my family to mess around with one another. So when we went to order the flowers yesterday (yes, I know we should have done it sooner but when you have a Corey, the wise parent waits to expend any money until it's practically a lock... we bought his outfit today), he immediately texted Lisa and told her that all they had were pink (her least favorite color) and a mustardy orange.
If I didn't already think Lisa was pretty sweet, her response sealed the deal, "Oh, sounds pretty."
And here's where I knew Lisa was the girl for me... erm... I mean, the girl for Corey, "Hooray. I'm gonna kick your A$$!"
Yeah, she's gonna be just fine around here.
Last week when he bought the tickets, Corey told me that the dance started at 6:00. Today we invited Lisa's parents to bring her over at 4:00. That'll give us about half an hour to fumble with flowers, giggle and have lots of pictures taken before Tom chauffeurs them to dinner. When they're done, he'll pick them up and take 'em to the dance. Dinner's about 15 minutes away from us and 20 from the school. Nice relaxed pace, but not too much extra time, right?
Back to the time... I called Lisa's mom and said they should come a little later if the dance isn't starting at 6:00 like we originally thought. Shirley had heard it was 7:00. So she and I have settled on 4:45 with the possibility of their being a little later than that.
