K married E, and her best friend Jen married his little brother. E sent me a text message late in March to let me know that they were going to throw a surprise, joint 30th b-day party May 22nd for K, Jen, and E's sister Laura... to which I immediately texted back "nooooooo! I can't go! It's the biggest social event of the Spring, and I've had the date set since January 1st!" - clearly it was the Preppy Pub Crawl. I should also point out that Jen's (31st) birthday was June 12th, K's was July 11th, and Laura's March 23rd. Hmm... So, E came through as an awesome brother-in-law and changed the date of the party so that I can attend. Yay!
So E called me a few weeks ago, and we had the following conversation:
E: "Hey! I need your opinion on something. My mom and I are discussing the party, and I want everyone to have a little take home favor of some sort. Do you think tee-shirts or visors are better?"
Me: "Um.... honestly, neither. It's a backyard BBQ, why don't you do koozies?"
E: "Koozies? What are those?" (mind you, E can drink, a lot)
Me: "Beer koozies! They are like a snuggie for your beer, the little foam things that your beer slides into and it keeps it cold. I order 125 of them twice a year for my pub crawls, always a big hit."
E: "Hmm... that's a good idea. How much are they? I mean, I still want to get t-shirts for the girls to wear that day."
Me: "Around $125 for 100, that includes shipping, and people actually can use them again. People don't really wear t-shirts or visors. Also, if you are getting shirts for the girls, please go to Customized Girl, it's a much better selection than any other!"
I am looking forward to the birthday, I am driving up with Gimpy and one of K and my mutual good friends, Steve. I have a feeling the boys will be getting drunk in my backseat while I drive, and Gimpy has already planned to "Ice" Steve before they get in the car. Should be an interesting ride. Then when we get there I will proceed to ignore them both and play with the boys!
Just glad E listened to me and ordered the koozies! Can you imagine if someone gave you a visor as a party favor? Ugh.
