We shared a love of photography and pop-tarts as well as Army Wives. So it was natural that we would talk outside of OD, we would stay up til all hours of the nights chatting on AIM.
|anyone remember good ol' AIM man? May he rest in peace.|
You might be thinking, were your parents idiots? Were you raised by monkeys? Who lets their daughter go visit a complete stranger and not give two hoots? Patience my friends. No, my parents weren't idiots and most days I'm not a child of monkeys. I hadn't let them in on this plan of mine until after I had purchased my plane ticket.
Oh so sneaky. Yeah, and back before I had to pay my own bills, I had the money to actually purchase said tickets.
When I did let my parents in on this brilliant plan of mine, to quote the wonderful ten things about you, the shiteth hitteth the fan..eth. How dare I decide to do this without their okay? because, I knew you'd say no.
They put a kabosh on my plans real quick, I had to cancel my tickets, I may have been a tad dramatic about not being able to go, but at least I didn't get kidnapped and killed by a strange old man, right parents?
Just kidding Mom.
One day, maybe her wedding or something, Liz and I will actually get to meet :)
& that's pretty much the extent of my teenage rebellion stage. I'm my parents good kid :D
