So the Board of Directors Retreat? Missed it. Yep. Woke up early Thursday morning to a very sick MP. After finally getting her coughing under control with the nebulizer, I was debating whether to go. And then she threw up. There was no way, in good conscious, I could spend the night an hour away. I THINK Conservaboss was cool with it … we’ll see Monday.
It’s now Friday night and she’s sleeping soundly, bouncing back already. I had a feeling this one was coming. Bobo’s had the Crud for a week; and last weekend MP and I hung out with my old friend Cannonball and her kids, who had it too. One way or another, she was gettin’ it.
The Cannonball Family was back in town for a visit — staying at her parents’ ranch on the other side of the mountains. MP and I drove up for the afternoon.
While Mr. Cannonball was out hunting with Grandpa Cannonball, she and I sat in her kitchen, drinking wine, woodstove blazing in the middle of the day, while our kids played.
I don’t even know how we got on the subject.
CB: This is gonna sound weird. There’s this book I’ve been reading …
ME: Mm hmm …
CB: You’d totally love it. It’s about vampires, and the guy …
ME: OMG! TWILIGHT?!?
ME: Edward Cullen?!?
CB: OMG, YES!
CB: Uh, YEAH …
ME: I’m already on book three!
CB: I’m on book four!
CB: What is WRONG with us?
ME: Edward is HOT.
CB: Um, YEAH …
ME: And Jacob? With the werewolf thing goin’ on?
CB: I KNOW!
ME: We got issues.
So, for the uninitiated, the Twilight Series is a four-volume set of vampire books. Written for TEENAGERS. (Aaaand, it just gets more pathetic.) Chances are, you’ve heard of it, especially now that the movie’s coming out Nov. 21.
Oh yeah. CB had a People Magazine she’d picked up at the airport. We found a photo of the actor who’ll be playing hottie teenage vamp Edward Cullin. Which didn’t help things.
We are sick, sick, mommies.
