I did a lot of growing up this weekend.
On Saturday I went shopping with my mom and Emily. Our first stop was to look at kitchen tables. I know. ONLY GROWN UPS SHOP FOR KITCHEN TABLES.
After that, we hit the mall so I could get some more business suits for work. I picked out several suits that I liked and went into the dressing room to try them . The first one fit me perfectly, but it was so shiny that it looked like I was either wrapped in tinfoil or masquerading as a giant bicycle reflector and that's really not the look I was going for. Although it would be the perfect suit for a hip hop star's agent, so if I hear that Chamillionaire has an opening on his staff, I'll be back to buy that shiny suit in a heartbeat.
Emily sat on the bench and listened to her ipod while giving me the thumbs up or thumbs down on each suit I tried on. She said very little, but when she did speak, she did so EXTREMELY LOUDLY in order to hear herself over the headphones, a tendency that was particularly charming when I tried on a pair of pants that may have been one or five sizes too small and she loudly exclaimed "OH WOW! CAN YOU EVEN ZIP THEM?'
I think shoppers in housewares heard her and her honesty.
Finally I settled on two suits and three tops, and at the checkout I applied for a Macy's card. ONCE AGAIN-how grown up of me. And then, as if that weren't enough, we stopped by the Verizon store on our way out, and I was once and for all booted off the family plan.
After our shopping excursion Emily and I went to a place very near and dear to my heart.
Since I've started my new job, I haven't been to Sonic once. Truth be told, I am actually surprised that they have managed to stay in business without my loyal patronage. I would be lying if I said I didn't think about Sonic daily, and I'm happy to report that this weekend I was finally reunited with my beloved peach sweet tea.
It was just the girls for dinner Saturday night, so after our stop at Happy Hour my mom sent Emily and I to the food store with twenty five dollars and instructions to come home with something tasty yet healthy for dinner.
We returned half an hour later with a classy, mature dinner.
A family pack of fried chicken and a bag of grapes.
Perhaps I do still have some growing up to do.
