Overheard at Happy Hour
For simplicity's sake, there were seven of us girls: me, the Pole Dancer, Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy and Louisa...it's WAY easier that way...
Beth: "Did you know that alpacas hum?"
Beth: "No. Hum. Like a tune."
Beth: "No idea. It's trivia. Just go with it."
Beth: "OH! Remember New Year's Eve?"
Beth: "Uh, no."
Amy: "Oh. Then, no. I don't remember."
[men high five]
Amy, who's husband won Cornhole: "I'm the Cornhole Queen."
Meg: "Ugh. I hate school holidays." [to Kate] "So, you're out too then, right?"
Kate: "Yes and no. No, because I have Nanny. But, yes, because I have to go to work. I'm never going to lose that last five pounds."
Meg: "Shut up. Look at you."
Kate: "You don't see me naked. I wish I could go to that class."
Pole Dancer: "Wait! What? You're taking naked classes?"
Amy: "My kids' school doesn't care that Columbus discovered America, so they have school. There's naked classes?"
Jo: [to Amy, who's in the middle of chemo which sucks but she's like kicking its ass and she wears awesome wigs and we all lurve her totally forever] "Can you drink?"
Amy: "Or bigger boobs! But sometimes I wake up thinking I have like double G's and I'm terrified."
Beth: "You buy your kind. I'll buy mine."
Louisa's Husband: "Yeah! She periodically screams out, 'Oh God!' So, right. Spiritual..."
