Today marks the beginning of a house full of hecklers and serious college hoop stats being thrown back and forth. I can always count on my fiance to invite all his friends over during March Madness. The boys (as I like to refer to them) make themselves comfortable and watch the young college men throw some tenacious basketball. Lots of cheering and wise cracks fill my living room.
Every once in a while I’ll peek in on them by bringing in a snack for them to gobble down. As I make my way into the room, they always graciously thank me for going the extra mile and preparing them a treat. Then one of them will build up the courage and ask in a polite voice, “Would you mind making us your delicious b-ball punch?” It’s like clockwork, I say “Sure, Let me just run over to Target and grab the stuff. I’ll be right back.” I don’t know why I don’t buy the stuff in advance…actually I do know why it’s the perfect excuse to slip out of the house and into Target. I could spend hours browsing the Everyday Collection or shopping for groceries. Everything I need is at Target, from the juice to the green apples to the pitcher to the glasses I use to pour my punch in. It’s the best one stop shop on the planet, and I’m glad to visit again and again.
