Don't you worry, I'm your girl
In the last few months, I have made another new friend in Tampa. We're both new to town, so I think we're both excited to make new friends so we've met for lunch and also gone to dinner with our families. K is a hoot! One day recently we were making those COOL pirate shirts at her house and we came inside to get something for the children to eat. She opened her refrigerator and started saying, "Oh, please don't look". I assured her that it looked fine. Then, she said, "If something happens to me, I expect you to come over and clean my refrigerator." Confused, I replied, "What do you mean? Why?" K replied, "Well, you know all of those church ladies will be over here stuffing casseroles in the refrigerator, and I don't want them to see all of the mess in here. You have got to promise you will come over and clean my refrigerator for me if I am dead!" At this point, I couldn't help but laugh. Only a Southern girl would worry about her refrigerator! :) K didn't ask me to console her children or bring dinner, she wants to make sure things in her refrigerator are in order. I replied, "Don't worry, I'm your girl!" She responded, "Now you know we're really becoming true friends." I love it! Yes, K, we are!
