Colorado was such a blast. This is what I love about Rachel and T, when we're all together, we find joy in the simplest things. We can just be sitting there, yet, we're having the best time. Who knew a game of Sorry could be so exciting or Deal or No Deal - what a rush! haha. Even a simple thumbs up to a stranger or waitress will draw the biggest laugh from me. It's little things like that that really make our friendship work.
Some things I learned while I was there: I suddenly became an excellent bowler amidst the lingering smells of the unmentionable. Ski suits and jackets of the 1980's are still totally cool. I'm still a fairly decent skiier, although, the first couple of runs tend to get away from me. I should probably never take the GRE, although, I wouldn't be half bad at the vocabulary section with my mnemonic devices. I could stare at the mountains all day long and never get bored. I know the exact game plan if I were to make it on the show Deal or No Deal. Colorado is filled with people from all over the world. Rachel needs to make a cd and go out on tour. I learned a lot about organic food and the maker's diet. I found myself requesting to listen to avril lavinge and kelly clarkson all the time. The Simple Life is a really funny show. Danielle Steele used to be married to ex-cons. The American Idol audience doesn't know what they're talking about half the time. It's okay to laugh out loud till you're almost crying and rolling on the floor while watching America's Funniest Home Videos, other people do too! I've confirmed that T-Bone is the craziest girl on this planet. Smarty pants is a bad word. I could be a really good pool player, if random guys would just let us play and not take our table! And if you're about to go over a cliff while skiing (or at least think you are) Fall Down!
There was so much fun packed in the short little week I was there. Staying up late with Rachel laughing our heads off about what we used to look like back in the day, our siblings and the stupid things they used to do, and then some of the stupid stuff we've done. And T-Bone, the girl is infectious. You just want to be around her because you never know what she's going to say. Thanks for a great vacation girls. I love you.
