You know how when you and your husband go to a party and you’re, like, “Oh, this food looks so good but I can’t eat it all so would you split a plate with me and we can share everything?” and your husband’s like, “Sure, sweetie. Whatever you want” although he’s remembering the time you said you didn’t like hot wings and then you ate the whole basket but a party is different because you want to taste a little of everything so you take the plate and fill it up with things you know you’ll like and things you’ll know he’ll like and then you’re working your way around the plate and you come to a sausage ball and you break it in half and eat your half and it’s really really good but because he’s busy eating the pork tenderloin slider he can’t eat his half of the sausage ball and it was so good that you really want him to have a whole one, you tell him, so you quickly eat the remaining half and then go back to the table only to find NO MORE SAUSAGE BALLS and then your husband realizes YOU HAVE EATEN THE LAST SAUSAGE BALL right in front of him? This is what that moment looks like.
Glad I was able to capture that moment. Me, I’m sorry I got caught looking like a sheepdog, jeans & T and got caught but the photographer taking pictures for Shoals Woman. And you still don’t believe Verborie & I are sisters/
Reminds me to avoid all pot luck spreads at work this season!! Avoid!! Avoid!! Not . . .
Mary — Well, you and Verborie both have the same exuberant smile, but I still need some convincing! And, Denise — Just give in. Don’t fight!
Oh, too funny! I think that happens more frequently than you might think. (Read that: guilty here)
Carolyn — Solidarity!
