Reunion, Day Two

Melanie and I were just plain tired the next day.

We slept in until 9:15 and then headed downstairs,
unshowered and untoothbrushed,
for breakfast.

You know you are longtime friends
when you hang out all nastay-girl like that. :-)
Melanie, you still love me, right? RIGHT?

Breakfast wasn't what I thought it would be.

I was looking around for some omelets,
maybe a "make your own" Belgian waffle maker
and a big pile of bacon.

Not. Even. Close.

They had biscuits. Round, preformed egg circles.
UGH.

So, I did what any girl looking for a good breakfast would do.

I began to whine.
And snivel.

When that failed,
I began to repeat
"Kolache Factory"
over and over again
until Melanie finally crumbled like a week-old cookie.

Putty in my hands, I tell you.

After she drove me (in my unshowered glory)
to the Kolache Factory,
we decided to go by our old houses.

I haven't seen my old house in many, many years.
At least 14 years.

When we drove up, there was a "SOLD" sign
in the front yard,
See? What did I tell you? Why don't you ever believe me?

and people hanging out talking.

Melanie sees this as a golden opportunity
to make friends, strike up a conversation
and the next thing I know,
we are headed inside, on a tour of my old home....
My old house. Cue sappy "Memories" song here.

To be continued.....

OK, remind me to never, ever, ever, allow you around me with a camera! You are lethal! Your old house looks nice though.Nic

So, how did the old house look inside? The outside looks good but am dying to know about the inside!
I agree with Nic--you are "shock happy" with the camera...poor Melanie!
Hope you talk more about the house tomorrow. Did you go by Mel's too?
Love,
MOM

I don't think I could do that.. I avoid old memories like the plague.

It really looks like you two had a wonderful time.
