I had a wonderful time tonight with Brenda M! What a little spitfire that woman is! What is that those silly tshirts say, "I'm not short, I'm Fun Size!". Well, THAT'S our 4'10" Bundle 'O Energy, Brenda M!
Yes, she's right, I was late. Driving in rush hour in DC is suicidal. It took me TWO hours to drive 13.9 miles. I don't know how commuters do it. I'm sure glad MY highway is at 36,000 feet!
We hugged like crazy (it was like hugging an American Girl doll; she's so TINY!), ordered our wine, complained about our weight to each other and then promptly ordered four deep-fried appetizers. Yum.
She's an amazing woman; you should HEAR all the things she does! So talented and open-hearted! And guess what? She's a non-smoker! Woohoo! Through the window at our table, we saw the people standing shivering in the cold outside, smoking. We agreed it was a VERY good thing not to have to do THAT anymore.
On our way to our cars, we asked a complete stranger to take one last picture of us. We agreed to get together again before she moves to Indiana.
It was a VERY, VERY good evening! (More EXers should get together, I think...)
