Today me and my friends were all home (well I'm not, but my college is a half hour from home so I'm close enough) so we decided to catch up over a Starbucks date.
It started out typical, us four girls having conversations with each other, talking over each other, just trying to catch up. We talked about what new mascaras to try and the best drinks and pastries at Starbucks (although I could only stare and drink my coffee since I gave up sweets for Lent). An hour into our little catch up, it started to snow. You never know with the weather, so we knew we had to leave as soon as possible. Around the same time, we decided that my friend Nicole was going to get her ear pierced and we needed to be on our way that second.
Half way there, the snow really started to stick and get slippery, right when we hit the busiest part of the drive. Slightly scared for our lives, we drove as safely as possible, trying to navigate our way there as none of us had been to this mall before (or at least often enough to remember the way).
Some how we made it to the mall but then we had to tackle the next hurdle, where on Earth the Piercing Pagoda was. And after looking at the map, and circling the first floor twice, we went back to the map and realized that it was on the second floor. During the same time, some sort of alarm was going off but everyone acted normal, so we ignored it, but it startled us every minute.
Then we finally find Piercing Pagoda, but it was an actual store instead of the kiosk that we are used to, so we nearly missed it and would have spent another 10 minutes trying to find it. We quickly found the best earrings for my friend to wear and the whole thing was done in a matter of minutes.
Then as we got back into the car, we had to figure out where to get gas and how to get back to my place to drop me off.
The whole thing was definitely an adventure that took up most of the morning and midday (10-2). I had such a great time, and it's always the best when you have adventures with your best friends. We also figured out that not only do we switch conversation topics really easily, but that we managed to stay on the topic of names for the entire half hour journey back home. Truly a day I will always remember.
What's the craziest adventure you had in the winter?
