E-mail between KD, Molly and me:
Me: Hey ladies, it was good to see you last week. Just saying hi. Molly, next week can I come over to see your house please?
Molly: Of COURSE! As long as it’s before 8pm on Wednesday, because that’s when I head to the airport to pick up a cousin for my brother’s wedding next weekend. Oh, and you have to wear your pirate shirt again.
Me: Tuesday evening would work for me…I’ll need directions.
Molly: Okay – here’s how you get there [directions.] It’s the first 2-story house on your left – on the corner, with crazy dogs barking at everyone. Speaking of dogs, C [Molly’s boyfriend] wants to kidnap Ike [KD’s dog] and bring him to our house.
Me: I’ll bring Gertie! Say 7ish?
Molly: Perfect. KD, you’re welcome to come, too, since you’ve been on this email.
Me: [Copying KD] was my secret sneaky way of coordinating a get-together with all of us. He he.
KD: Ah yes – you are brilliant!! I would love to and will try to. Why does C want to dognap Ike?
Molly: He thinks Ike is handsome and has a nice personality. Seriously – that’s what he said.
Me: It sounds like something I would say about a guy after the first date, followed by “and we made out.” Interesting.
KD:Well, true on all counts – he is handsome and has a nice personality – and he would totally make out with you.
Molly: you guys slay me!
