Congratulations to my daughter, Emma Pay, who just graduated high school. This 4′ photo collage, that will hang in our house, and a giant party were her graduation presents. At last-minute, Emma opted out of a soccer scholarship in Iowa and instead chose an academic scholarship at SUU just three hours south of here. I am so proud of her!
That night I threw an epic party for the entire Senior class at my friend Drew’s house. His basement is a dance club and I hired a deejay. Fire pit in the backyard, big screen dance video games going upstairs: Matthew made hundreds of smoothies all night (not the green kind) and the kids danced till late with glow stick necklaces and bracelets and celebrated their heads off.
Before the party, Drew texted me this photo and said his $5,000 beautiful new Corian had broken in his kitchen. All because he took a bag of frozen fruit out of his freezer, and banged it on the counter to make a green smoothie.
I texted back,
“Stupid green smoothies! They wreck everything! Just eat Doritos!”
Learn the easy way instead of the hard way like Drew: don’t bang frozen fruit on your counter! You can freeze chunks of fruit individually on cookie trays, then put them into baggies. That way they don’t freeze in giant clumps.
(And, congrats Maeser Prep grads!)
