Edna: Margie, we'd best get to cleaning up the house, we've got company coming this week! My lands, this will be such a party on Wednesday, I'm so excited. Do we know yet who's coming?
Margie: I'm making a list now, Edna. I already have the names of all the single men.
Margie: I'm not cleaning until you show me you're going to do some work too. I've already asked Cousin T to help us.
Edna: That poor boy, one of these days we really should think about paying him for all the work he does. And don't you start with me about doing housework, you know I do the bulk of the cleaning around here! That's why I'm asking for some help now, you ninny. We've got a lot of folks coming and not a lot of time, so get to Swiffering!
I think we should invite all of our Jericho friends, don't you? People like Debby and kricka, and definitely briarpatch and kmac. And of course, April and Jennie! My lands, I'm leaving folks out, aren't I? Who else are we inviting?
Margie: Edna, you're a lying liar. You lay around all day and try to pretend you're rich. Swiffer yourself.
You forgot Miss Lidian and Mr. The Hawg, Edna. We can invite Taylor Blue because she likes to gossip and we like to hear it. Maybe we could invite Jenn Cooks and she could make all the food.
Edna: It would be a poor hostess indeed who makes their guests cook! Margie, you're just trying to get out of work and I won't have it. Any guests that come will be treated like royalty, if I have anything to say about it.
Oh, Margie, we forgot about Silly Willy and Fluffy, Rich at Copywrite Ink, Miss Amy Vernon, and hawksdomain! They have to come too, along with Maitri and Fashiona and RollerKaty and glor!e... Goodness gracious, but we do know a lot of people. How are we going to send out invitations without neglecting anyone or hurting their feelings?
Margie: Lord a mercy, Edna, we're old ladies. If anybody says we forgot them then we'll just say we had some Senior moments. They'll be fine then.
Edna: Margie, being elderly is no excuse for bad manners. Besides, the last time you used that "senior moment" excuse was in court when you were trying to avoid that indecent exposure charge. It didn't work then, either. I know, let's just make it an open invitation right here on our blog and say everyone is invited. That way, no one will feel left out. How does that sound?
Margie: Edna, that sounds fine. You could really make my day if you say you can't attend. Lying liar.
Edna: Well, you can kiss my grits, because I'm going to be there with bells on. The rest of our friends will be too, so you'd best go put your party face on. You might want to start now, I know it will take you at least a day to make yourself presentable.
As for the rest of you, please come to our blog anniversary party on Wednesday, we'll be celebrating in style!
