I have copied relevant bits over from another group.
Oh Gawd, This Thing is Snowballing.
Now and then a situation presents itself that I have to run with. My grown kids and family are totally immune, they are so used to it.
I am in an age peer message board group. We have been together many years, meet up about once a year and have formed great friendships, in touch by phone etc, share each other's ups and downs.
In that group my avitar is a witch, witchy poo that a bloke there imposed my face on.
There is a woman in that group who has become a great mate over the years, we sarcastic banter etc. She is very embarrasable, fresh meat so to speak. I often joke that I will jump on my broom and go wherever.
I am meeting her and my sister who is on a later flight at the baggage area at the airport on Friday. I will be in full witch makeup, sitting on a straw broom, a placard on a stick saying "Witchy poo transport, paging Linda" and a pic of her, hair in rollers (from the last meet) on it meeting the arrivals.
I have told a few trusted people who will not tell her. I told another friend on the phone tonight who will be at the meet. She cracked up laughing and said her daughter works for the paper there, that they are always looking for good stuff as news is so bad lately. She also said a tv channel is always on the lookout for odd stuff for weather program at the end of the news, she is contacting them.
