Margaritas and Mayhem

March 2, 2011 tooboots

It was an evening of margaritas and mayhem as my friends and I staged a mini-reunion at a local Mexican eatery. We met years ago and bonded over coffees and breakfasts while our sons attended pre-school. Back then it was a luxury to have at least a few hours of freedom to chat, discuss our daily routine, and laugh over stories until it was time to scoop up the boys and finish our household chores.

Our children are older now, and we don’t see each other nearly as often. Mostly we catch up via Christmas cards or the occasional run in at Costco or Target. But tonight was different, because we–Felicitas, Panorea, Yumi…and Jane—were meeting as a group for the first time in nearly nine years.

Over a few rounds of drinks, baskets of chips and salsa, and the biggest burrito this side of the Rio Grande, we shared stories and brought each other up to speed. Yumi’s oldest child has graduated from college and is now living in Manhattan. Jane is about to become a volunteer at a nearby hospital. Panorea is back to work full-time. I am freelancing and trying to make heads or tails with this blog 😉 The four of us all look the same, or so we claim. We got giggly and silly and loud. Laughing so hard, one of us even peed in her pants. (wasn’t me) Some patrons were a little annoyed at our volume, but who cares? We were having a blast!

Many thanks, ladies, for sharing a friendship that can so easily slip back into gear.

It was a wonderful evening.

    Sounds like you guys had a blast, well, aside from the peeing. 🙂
