The Girls

I'm trying to make five pairs of socks before May 19th. One pair done, one pair 3/4 done, one pair 1/4 done, two pairs not started yet. What is this deadline for, you might ask? Well, I want to give them as gifts at my sister's bachelorette party. Not very girl-ish (and what is more girl-ish than a bachelorette party?) but it's something I know how to do relatively well.

The girl who is organizing the thing has asked me to put together some "party games". Holy cow. Party games for a bunch of women? Now, I will likely be the oldest woman there. I think I might be the only non-bachelorette there, too. I'll probably be the most awkward, and might be viewed as a snob because I don't usually mix well with "the girls".

You know, maybe I am a snob, because I am usually not one of the girls. Maybe I'm jealous, because perhaps they are more feminine than I am? Because I will always view them as something I could never be? Because I feel like a big hulking slob compared to them? My sister is one of the girls. I adore my sister, and really love spending time with her. But a party filled with The Girls? I worry.

I will probably end up having a marvelous time.

P.S. Any suggestions about bachelorette party games? The "theme" of the party is "lingerie". Ohhh, goody. This is from someone who sleeps in T-shirts and shorts in the summer, and flannel nightgowns/pajamas in the winter...
