I first met Becky in a Broadcast Journalism class at Jacksonville University. Our first assignment was to make a how-to video. I can’t remember precisely what mine was, but I think it may have involved cooking something…in the microwave. Becky’s was about how to change a tire. I was intrigued. The girl looked like a walking Barbie doll, but she knew how to change a tire. Why? If she ever got a flat there would be men lined up for miles wanting to help her. I learned that day that she is very independent and I liked her immediately. She’s one of my favorite friends. Always loyal and dependable, and LOTS of fun!
I wish I had time to write about all my “fun with Becky” stories. But I have to tell this one: We were in the airport on our way to Vegas. We’d made unusually good time, so we stopped for essentials in the gift shop: fashion magazines. When Becky reached in her purse to pay for her mags she gasped and then quickly collected herself like nothing was wrong. I was clueless until she pulled me to the side and said, “I have a gun”. Um, what?! “In my purse. I forgot to leave it in the car.” (Yes, we both have guns. Just one of the many reasons we are friends!) We had been dropped off, so there was no where to take it. We quickly went through our options, and they were not good. Leave it in a planter, ask if they have lockers and stash it in one, put it in one of the suitcases for sale in the gift shop, and my favorite-just try to make it through security.
Things got really interesting when we went and told the security officers, “We have a gun.”
We missed our flight.
Best trip ever. 🙂
Becky has a birthday this month, so we met up for a FUN birthday photoshoot!
Happy Friday, everyone!
