Me, center, with my college buddies Shel, Deb & George and *some* of our kids (with *their* kids).
We all found each other again on Facebook and decided to get together tonight at the American Girl Store's Bistro. It was incredibly awesome to see them again -- some people you just love for a whole lifetime, even if it's twenty years in between times you see one another. And I sincerely hope it isn't twenty MORE years before we all see one another again.
And yes, being good Oklahoma Baptist University girls, we stood outside afterwards and did "Ka-Rip." We had to. It's just one of those things you have to do. If you never went to Oklahoma Baptist University, don't try to understand this because you just won't. It's a string of nonsense syllables that must be shouted at the top of one's lungs while clapping, and if you don't have it memorized during that first week of your freshman year, upperclassmen will humiliate you. Hence you memorize it and you NEVER FORGET IT. EVER.
We'll all probably be shouting it in our nursing homes and they'll medicate us to make us stop.
