Funny Friends

Okay, so I have a funny friend. She wasn't trying to be just happened. I promised I wouldn't use her name - but also promised that I WOULD post this on this blog! :) Oh, and this friend happens to have some Latino blood in her...

So, I called this friend a couple weeks ago to tell her that there is going to be a Beth Moore conference in Colorado Springs in May, and to see if she'd be interested in going with me. We both love Beth Moore, and since I missed her in Phoenix, and since Colorado Springs isn't THAT far, I thought it would be a good chance to go. (The dates are May 2-3, at the World Arena, visit for more details) She was excited about it and we started talking about other friends we could invite to go. So as we're talking about she stops and says (trying to make me freak out that she can't/won't go), "Oh wait, you know, I don't think I can go..."

"Oh no! Why not?" I ask.

"Its on May 2nd, and I'll be celebrating my heritage for Cinco de Mayo..."

I paused. She paused.

"Cinco de Mayo, huh?" I said.

"Yep, sorry, friend...guess you'll just have to find someone else to go with."

Now I may not speak Spanish fluently but there is one thing I know...the word, Cinco means five or 5th...

"So," I say. "Are you going to be celebrating Dos de Mayo this year?!"

"What?" Pause. "Oh! HA HA HA HA!!! Man, I suck...."

Yes, friend. Yes you do!

Just Kidding, you know I love you!!! HA HA HA HA HA!!!
