Road Trip!



Betty will be gone from the Blogosphere for a few days as I travel up north to take Evan to his college orientation.

All the good parents will be attending the Parent Program at the university, listening to experts discuss how best to help students make this important transition from high school to college.

Betty, on the other hand, will be doing some hard-core partying with her grad school buddies who live in the area.

That's right. After I drop the kid off, I'll party with the English majors. We'll play word games, drink soda late at night, and maybe even get into some pretty confrontational book reviews.

It's going to be a blast.

See you when I get back!

You English majors sure know how to throw down! We psych majors would sit and evaluate you until we got too stoned. LOL

LOL BB, remember what happens up north stays up north and whatever you do don't do anything that would require Evan posting your bail....Hugs C

Why, Betty! I never realized you were such a wild, wild woman! ;-) Have a great time!

well be careful: friends don't let friends drink soda and drive!

The Chicken's Consigliere said...

Have fun Betty-don't get carried away with the colas. Everyone knows it is a gateway beverage. Sure, it's just one cola here and there now, but before you know it, you'll be craving those bright blue energy drinks, and swearing you'd feel 100% more energetic if you could get a little blue dye #57in your system.

Unknown Mami said...

Sounds like my kind of fun. Live it up!

Jingle said...

have a fun trip.
smooth sailings.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I had no idea you were such a wild woman, Betty. :)

Joyful said...

Go wild, Betty ;-) Have fun.

Confrontational book reviews: you crack me up.
