Where did we leave off? Oh right, dinner with the grandparents on Saturday night. After dinner, Nick, my parents, and I headed up to my parents' friends' ski condo. Their condo complex has a well-appointed clubhouse, with a fitness area, bar/lounge, game room, and most importantly - two indoor pools & a hot tub! Hence the emergency bathing suit shopping. Sorry, Teeny - that's not very exciting. ;)
The hot tub was, of course, lovely, especially in contrast to the -3 degree weather outside. At one point, Nick & I were in the hot tub with my mother and her friend's daughter, who is 12 years old & the closest thing I have to a first cousin. I asked her how her math tutoring was going (she's being tutored by my company), to which she replied, "Good. But it doesn't matter that much because I'm going to marry Johnny Depp & we'll have someone to buy our groceries & do our taxes for us." I nearly drowned laughing. :)
The conversation then went something like this:
Me: Yeah, I'm horrible at math too.
Sarah:* Well, you should do the same thing then.
Me (without thinking): Yeah? Then who should I marry?
Sarah: What about him? (points to Nick)
Thank God & all the saints that be - he didn't run screaming out of the hot tub! In fact, he said, "She's smart, I like her." Hmmm. That's good. :)
After our hot tubbing was done, we all (Mum, Dad, Nick, parents' friends, their two kids, and I) headed back to their condo to enjoy some appetizers & beverages. My favorite moments:
- My mum & I each accusing the other of being half in the bag (and we were both right!)
- We're all pretty big talkers & Sarah turned to Nick at one point & said, "You're too quiet. You should talk more."
- Sarah tried to teach us a game called "Wanna Buy a Duck?" We were absolutely abysmal at it. Disgusted, she said, "A bunch of 7th grade girls did better at this game than you people."
