I wouldn't ask but it's really, really important.
On Saturday we have some friends coming to visit from Ohio.
I knew they were coming for a few months now.
I had planned to...
Lose 50 pounds
Get some hair extensions
Get some skin re-surfaced
You know...so I wouldn't look so old and haggard and they would say "OMG! Look at you! You haven't aged a bit!"
And then, in my spare time, I was going to...
Get all the furniture cleaned
Organize all my cupboards just in case they actually opened one
Wash all the windows
Hire an interior decorator
You know...so when they said, "OMG! Look at you! How do you have time to keep things so perfect?" I would just shrug my skinny little shoulders and say, "Oh, it's nothing really."
I haven't done a darn thing except dust the guest bedroom and buy a jumbo pack of toilet paper.
I am, however, planning to make Mr. Jenny cook pizzas in our wood-fired oven AND give them a do-it-yourself s'mores buffet around the fire-pit.
They're gonna like the food.
I just really, really need to borrow your industrial size fog machine so I can camoflauge me and my messy house!
It's a good plan, right?
I think it will work. My first idea was just to throw sand in their eyes to temporarily blind them, but I thought that might be a little bit mean...so I'm stickin' with the fog machine idea instead.
If you let me borrow yours, you can stay for pizza! And make a s'more or two.
Let me know pretty quick, though, if you're not willing to share.
I need to have time to get a bag of play sand for Plan B, if the fog machine idea isn't gonna happen.
