I am sure when you read the title of this post your thoughts went right to Betty White, Rue McLanhan, Bea Arthur, and Estelle Getty or maybe the beloved phrase, "Thank you for being a friend." As I am writing this I am humming the tune. (Confession: I use to watch The Golden Girls every day. Sorry, back to the point...)
Last month, a few of my friends from USM were together at a shower. We talked about how sad it was that we all live within an hour and half from each other but never really hang out. We made a plan to get together every few months to hang out and keep in touch. We wanted to have a name for our group so we started throwing out ideas. Since we all went to USM, we wanted our name to represent USM in some way, hence "The Golden Girls." Get it? Golden girls, golden eagles.
This past weekend was the first Golden Girls reunion. We meet in Jackson at Julep for dinner. We had a great time catching up and making memories. Check out a few of the Golden Girls blogs here, here, and here.
Here are some of the highlights of the night:
- Two of us arrived a few minutes before the other two and the waiter asked us if we would need the other table. If we didn't they would like to know so they could use it for other guests. We didn't need it so we happily gave up the table.
- The waiter kept trying to get us to order before everyone on arrived. He also used the word "beautiful" after everything. Waiter: "Are you ready to order?" Us: "No we are waiting on someone." Waiter: "Beautiful." Every exchange of dialogue went this way.
- We ordered 4 desserts. We thought they might be small and everyone would be able to have a few bites of each. We were wrong!
- We all finished our meal and dessert and had paid our bills and were just enjoying hanging out, when our waiter came to our table and asked if we needed anything else. We said no. He then asked us to leave because other costumers had reserved this table. We all looked at each other a little confused and processed to gather our belongings and left.
Before we were asked to leave we made plans for the Golden Girls to get together again. We are very excited and are hoping that all the Golden Girls will be able to join us next time.
I want to leave you with a blurred out pic of the waiter that asked us to leave. Another funny moment, when we asked him to take our picture and he squatted down for us to take a pic of him. Enjoy!
