I went to the beach last weekend with my sister and 2 of her co-workers. I had never met them, which usually makes me uneasy, but I really wanted to go to the beach, so I put on my friendly face and off I went.
The first night was fine. Although I could tell we were very different people. They were playing cards, drinking coffee while my sister and I were enjoying our Amaretto Sours and watching Ghost Whisperer. (Tushes at 8:00! That's for you Kathi. )
On the second night my glasses of wine encouraged me to bring up a theory I have about Republicans and their feelings toward the Clintons. I wouldn't normally talk politics with strangers but dang that yummy Pinot Gris!
Well, when I was done venting, one of the ladies told me she was a proud Republican and began her little speech (which in the end proved my theory true).
I was embarrassed that I had brought this up, but I was also happy to learn I was on the right track. (I'm trying to think positive here.)
Well, I doubt I will be asked back for a weekend getaway with those ladies.
The Amaretto Sours were worth it.
