I woke up suddenly this morning to the sound of my phone buzzing like crazy.. there were several text messages from my friend, Telisa. (Best friend from back home.) They kept saying - WAKE UP. I'm coming to Birmingham.
Finally, the phone rang.
"Hello?" I said in a tired voice.
"Wake UP! I want to come to Birmingham"
"I don't have the gas to drive home," I responded.
"No - WAKE UP. I am driving to see YOU."
Suddenly, I was awake and said, "OH! Fabulous. When are you leaving?"
"Now - I am backing out of the driveway."
Seriously - 4 hours later - that isTelisa in my Kitchen!
We decided to go for icecream - was a massive craving Telisa had. So I took her to Mountain Brook Creamery in Mountain Brook Village.
She went for one scoop of Rocky Road
I went for one scoop of Peppermint!
We were being silly geese.
She got so excited - she had to try a BIGGER one!
Afterwards, we headed downtown to the McWane Science Center. Here she is laying on a bed of nails.
Then having to pull her own weight to make it to the top.
HAHHAA... sooo.. we kept saying that this thing made her look like she had a penis.
Cool ball fountain.
Dodgeball a la disco fever. Yeah - she was taking this kid on.
This took us well over 15 minutes to construct.
And less than 5 seconds to fall apart.
I made the world's biggest bubble!
Then we headed down to the aquarium.
That's an octopus!
He would not let go of my booty.
Ready, Dr. Cunningham
As soon as I did this - I said.. "I now have the flu." I kept thinking of all of those germy little kids.
Little did I realize.. my boobs made an impact also. LOL
I told Telisa -with the proper bra.. this could have turned out sooo much better. LOL
NOW - she's a star.
Inside a tornado tube
Yes - we can act civilized. After wreaking havoc on the Science Center - we headed to O'Henry's in Homewood for a coffee-pick-me-up.
What a nice way to spend day two of my stay-cation. Who knew my closest friend from home would visit?
Blessings all around!!!
