GET READY SHOOTERS
a couple of friends are organizing a dinner for a huge group of us the first night of our five year reunion. the organizers suggested that they may be able to get the shooters bus to shuttle us to and from the restaurant. i replied that, if they did manage to book the shooters bus, they could name my firstborn.
apparently, if all goes well, my firstborn will be named empanada shooters dickey. i have no problem with this.
p.s. i feel like now is a good time to remind everyone that i broke the story of the shooters bus back in 2005:
p.p.s. i’m 98% certain that my research for this article consisted of me riding the shooters bus back and forth for like 2 hours. the parts i remember were amazing.
"Jacqueline Dickey, Journalist" is about as great as "Trent McNatt, Businessman" (yes, from a time he went to a bar and someone asked his occupation and he just replied "businessman")
Gave up drinking during the week for Lent
(Note that I actually gave up alcohol entirely in 2009 and 2010, but I have a bachelorette weekend in Miami + my college reunion between now and Easter, so that wasn’t gonna happen this year.)
people’s reactions are pretty split between:
- wow how impressive!
- AYFKM how much do you drink during the week that have to add the weekday qualification, you lush
to me these responses cancel each other out and y’all I think I indeed did pick a winner
