i was just over at juz's blog and read that j.k. rowling is coming out with a new book in december.
as soon as i read the author's name a big, dorky smile came to my face.
then i literally laughed aloud:D
several years ago, john, katherine and i were returning from vacation and were driving through nashville, tn. i turned around to katherine (who was sitting in the back seat of the van) and asked her if she wanted to go at midnight to get the harry potter book that was coming out that night.
she said she did and that she wanted me to call the notorious d to see if she and will (kat's bf) wanted to join us.
i called and d said, "are you kidding??? go at midnight???"
"yes," i replied. "i thought we'd go for the experience and in order to make a memory."
after a moment of hesitation, she asked again if i were really serious. i assured her i was. "ok," she gave in, "we'll go with you..."
anyway, we picked them up and headed to walmart with an hour to spare. we were probably one of the first 10 or 15 people to get there for the book. the cashiers had us all stand in a group in the middle of the store.
after about 30 minutes, d and i got tired of standing; so, we went over and were leaning against a bunch of unopened boxes full of things that needed to be stocked. we'd only been standing there for a few minutes when this goofy guy walked up to us.
he began to shove his glasses up(which were barely hanging on to the end of his nose) with his pointer finger; and as he did so, he looked at d and me and said in his goofy voice, "so, i guess we are all here for the same thing???"
d and i just smiled and pleasantly nodded. he stood there awkwardly for a few minutes and then went on his way...
d started laughing (she was cracking herself up;)!!!
"what???" i asked.
she pointed to the box behind us. it was a box of always feminine pads... she then began to laugh hysterically. "iii should have HAHAHAHAA... told that guy that i didn't know what he was here for but that we were here waiting for HAHAHAHA snort, snort (yes she did!!! HA!!!) the always with wings!!!"
i thought i was going to wet myself!!!
katherine turned around and naively said, "huh???"
the notorious d had already moved to florida before the next book was released...
so, katherine and i went by ourselves.
on our way to walmart katherine said
(THIS IS PRICELESS!!!):
(she was a little confused about always with wings,
i love that daughter of mine!!!
love and blessings,
***megan sent me this commercial i had to add it... as it is friggin' hysterical!!!
