The Moment You Realize, I Have Become That Person.

Saturday night was Girl's Night. Some how the group has aquired a nickname, the RAC Pack. I don't know where RAC Pack came from. I'm not sure what RAC stands for. I do know that it is RAC, not Rac, and certainly not, Rack. Dropping the 'k' gives it street cred. I worry a lot about street cred. Like I worry about getting my cat plastic surgery.

So having found a cool name for our group, I had to go and reveal myself to be completely uncool. I brought Caffeine free Diet Coke. I am 35. And with age, caffeine has started to effect me like Speed. I don't take speed. Which I have on good authority, is far more fun then caffeine, so why continue to include caffeine? Half way through the night, I ran out. When I pulled the Diet Pepsi from the fridge I must have had a look on my face somewhere between smelling a garbage dump and trying to remember if I left the stove on, because I started to get needled about my Caffeine Free Diet Coke. At that moment, I knew, I would never be seen as hip again.

OH! You are back in fine form you rock star! By the way how did you sleep after your one drink with Diet Pepsi instead of your old lady pop?

Just fine, thank you dearie. Now have you seen my hair nets and cat food?

Is "Rent A Center" representative of the fact that on any given girls night out we might wind up in a Budget van on our way to South America?? It highlights why Brad always asks if I packed my Mexican money when I announce I'm heading out with the pack.

Tash said...

Well Jen, we all know you can only pay male Mexican strippers in pesos! God, that was embarrassing last time! ;)

jennie said...

Tash did these strippers look like Antonio Banderas? I just want to make sure we got our money's worth (you know because of my drunken haze I forgot)!

Seriously now I'm thinking we should plan our own girls gone wild weekend in Cancun.

I agree, the only problem is who would bail the RAC Pack members out of jail? Your husbands would leave us there to rot! And no one is going to help a group of women that have Rent a Centre as a moniker!

Ladies, Ladies, have gun will travel, I will break you out of the mexican jail! Since I will not get caught! Great post Heidi.

Brad will bail us out of the clink. He'll miss clean underwear & hot meals too much. We'll use the bandita Muffy for more important things like stealing a yacht for us to use to sail into international waters.
