"I'm just having a cocktail"
So I have a lot of great conversations with my niece. When I am pulling my hair out at work, or stuck in a subway train because someone inconveniently decided to jump during rushhour (aagh late again), It's little miss S who I picture to bring a smile to my face and drop my blood pressure back to human.
But today's conversation is in my top 3:
Tuesday, September 27, 6:33 pm:
My sister puts S on the phone:
S: "AUNNNNT BECCCCA"
me: "Hi Sweetie!!:
S: "Hi! Hi! Remember when you got married???"
me "Yeah I do -it was last month"
S: "you looked soooo pretttttty:
me "Oh thanks honey!!"
S: "And I looked sooo pretty tooo!!! in my dressssss!"
me "yes you did!!! what are you doing tonight??"
S: "ummmm I'm having a cocktail"
(my sis in the background: " A FRUIT cocktail, S- tell her its a FRUIT cocktail")
S: "its basically pinapples and cherries"
(my sis in the background: "S! Tell her is a FRRUUUUITTTT cocktail")
me "Is this rum or vodka based?"
(my sis in the background: "S!!! Please tell her its fruit in a can!" )
S: "AUNT Becca- its basically fruit in a can"
me "I love you"
S: "I love you to byyyyyye"
