Dear Emily,

Hey! It was so nice to see you in Target today. So, here’s the deal: 2010 is the year we finally get together. I know, I know, we see each other a couple of times a year at a store in passing and our conversations invariably end with something lame like this; “We should totally get together sometime!” “Yeah, that would be awesome!” You know, and I know, and you know that I know, and I know that you know–this doesn’t work. Let’s get our families together for real this year. Besides, Violet loves babies (so far).

As for the rest of you, let’s totally get together sometime, because–that would be awesome! No, seriously.

(unless i don’t know you…in which case, why are you reading my blog anyway? creepy.)

By the way, you know that tire place next to Costco that says “WE BEAT COSTCO”? They do. by alot. they beat les schwab too. I’m not sure if they serve popcorn, but with a 20% savings, I’ll go buy my own freaking popcorn.
