No matter how old you are you can still have a giggly slumber party.
Queen Mentor, a lovely colleague, and I are down in Washington, D.C. for a conference at George Washington University to honor the participants in the White House's Interfaith and Community Service Challenge. Our university was nominated to be on the President's Honor Roll! Mentor and I will be presenting to a large auditorium of participants tomorrow on our work with the Council at our school. We're betting we made it to the Honor Roll and will be receiving an award! A gala is scheduled and good times will be had by all.
We arrived nice and early today and enjoyed the fountains and sights of the Georgetown marina on the Potomac River. We had a lovely dinner, took a river cruise, and had drinks and dessert at an authentic Irish Pub.
When we got back to our room we had the giggles. The sign on our windowsill about a "preponderance of mosquitoes" had us rolling in laughter. You know, there is a gaggle of geese, a flock of seagulls, a murder of crows, a pride of lions, so it must be that many mosquitoes makes a preponderance. It struck us so funny.
It felt good to laugh, let go, and just be silly.
My travel mates are sleeping now. Let me try to sleep as well.
