Author’s Note: This actually happened last weekend, but due to recent meteorological conditions in our area, known as “The Ice Storm of 2009”, the internet connection has been sloooow and unreliable, off for multiple hours at a time, a situation not conducive to the posting of narrative such as this. So this story has waited. Until now…
Once upon a time there were two girls, one big and one little, who really liked to hang out with each other. They decided that it would be really fun to go on an adventure together and head west to the great state of Colorado to attend a surprise party for a cool uncle. An older, wiser, uncle.
Knowing it would be only for the weekend, though, they found the courage to conquer the skies alone. And they’re glad they did, because they had a wonderful time with family – laughing, eating, and telling stories.
The little girl thought that the best way to get to know family was to make them hold her. And held she was. The big girl knows better and thinks that conversation is the best way to go…
The little girl decided to start her college search early and tried Princeton, her other cool uncle’s alma mater, on for size. Still a little too big for now, she says.
Finally, it was time for the big party. There were tons of people, good pizza, and cake.
Before they knew it, it was time to head back home. Little did they know that the weather they were traveling in was the big storm that would catch up to them a day or two later. They tried to run away but it didn’t work.
Then, they had to wait on the tarmac as the plane was de-iced. The big girl thought this was interesting and really hoped “ICEMAN 2” was getting all the spots he needed to. The little girl had no clue it was happening. She was out before the plane even pushed away from the gate.
Back home, that man that left them at the airport was back again, bearing gifts: a beautiful rose for the big girl and a bright colorful balloon for the little girl.
It was a great weekend and the girls said they should do it again. But next time, they think it would be even more fun to take that guy with them.
