Will bribe for friends

Annie Parsons - Mt. Elbert

By this time on Saturday, I had already climbed to the top of the highest mountain in Colorado.

Annie Parsons - Mt. Elbert

Today, I am still in my pajamas, drinking coffee, and trying to figure out how I’m going to survive today’s heat.  I think I’ll bake for the neighbors in hopes of being invited to their BBQ that I overheard them talking about through my office window when they were on their front porch.

You wish I was joking.  I kind of wish I was joking, too, but… the cake is in the oven.

    Baking can get you everywhere, this is a great plan.

    First, a question. What the pluck is a pluck? Also, can I suggest you attempt these cupcakes to make friends?:


    I would, but I eat while I bake and there would be nothing left by the time I got to assembling it all.

    So did it work? Did you get the meat?

    You are the best looking woman on top of Mt. Elbert, maybe EVER. My baby. My daughter the mountain climber. I am so proud of you. And jealous. Kinda hard to find a peak in Austin. . .

    I wish I could have been your 4th of July buddy. :-/ I wouldn’t be able to help with the mountain climbs though.

    Well? Did it work?

    It totally worked. I got invited. But I didn’t go. I don’t know – by the afternoon, I just lost interest. Why am I so fickle?
