Beet Digger Wannabe

I was hesitant to write about my experience as a Beet Digger because I know it will resonate a lot of jealous and resentful feelings directed towards me and I would hate to be the source of such sinful thoughts and emotions.


Oh who am I kidding? Resent away!


I was honored to be accepted, if only for one night, as a part of the Jordan High School (home of the Beet Diggers) Popular Girl crowd. And not popular girls like in the movie Mean Girls popular, but popular girls as in the coolest chicks you'll ever meet kind of popular.


My friends Andrea & Talisia are part of this group of like 13 or 14 girls from Jordan High who are all good friends and every month they take turns hosting a get together. This month was Tara's turn and she wanted to go see Thriller! (Which I've been dying to see since poo poo head Andrea saw it without me.)


And they let me tag along.


Thriller totally rocked! For anyone that doesn't know what Thriller is, it's an annual dance production put on by The Odyssey Dance Theatre every year for Halloween. It's scary, it's creepy and it's amazing! The dancing is incredible!















I already knew Tara and Dellany who are awesome bloggers and even awesomer real life friends, and I met the other girls for the first time that night at dinner.


At first I felt like that new kid in school with the glasses and braces who is ugly and awkward before she's befriended by the popular girls who then give her a makeover so by the end of the school year she gets asked out by the hottest guy at the school and they go out on a date but he's a jerk and just wants to have sex with her so she slaps him and then realizes that she's been in love with her nerdy best guy friend who she ditched to hang out with the popular girls and after she apologizes for her stupid ways he takes her back and they live happily ever after.


It was like that but minus the braces, and after we sat down and all got to talking, I realized they were all quirky like me so I felt right at home.


Thanks Dell for ordering nachos with me for dinner and for teaching me things that I didn't even know existed, like almond milk and, what did you call them? Vegetables? Yeah, that was pretty awesome.


And thanks Sara for freaking out about everyone having babies all the time and doing stupid stuff like getting married. Oh, and thanks for being so concerned about the audience at Thriller who were all coughing and choking to death from smoke inhalation.


As far as you know I didn't cough once. Shut up Andrea.


And thanks Tara for buying the tickets and letting me write you out a check like those annoying check writers in the grocery check out lines that take FOREVER! Good God people, ever heard of a debit card? Checks or SO 20th century. Oh and thanks for liking the ruffles on my shirt, they like you too.


And thanks Talisia for not having your baby right there on the steps in front of Kingsbury Hall. I thought for sure he'd pop out after that zombie girl snuck up on you and I would have to jump forward and catch him before he hit the cement and then we'd all have to take you to the hospital and miss the show all together. So yeah, thanks for not doing that.


And for not peeing.


And thanks Andrea...for something. I'm sure you did something I should be thankful for soooo...thanks...er whatever.


And lastly, I'd like to thank the Academy. It was hella fun!

Sounds like you had a good time! It's good to get out & have fun. However, I'm now off to seethe in my jealous resentment of your fabulousity.

Sara said...

Just a wee bit jealous! Sounds like an amazing time. Yay for girls night out. What the heck is a Beet Digger?

Cairo Typ0 said...

It sounds like an awesome time was had by all. :) I think it's cool to have a group of good girl friends to hang with like that. :)

Pricilla said...

Mmm, ruffles. I like ruffles too. Nothing like a little nibble of ruffles to start a goat's day.

You had a great evening!! I have just felt ripped off by the price of the "off broadway" and the quality of what we get in Columbus. This sounds excellent!!

blueviolet said...

You are the coolest girl I know.

Yaya said...

Oh my gosh, you are hilarious. Too many points of awesomeness in this post to mention. Hahahaha!

Suzi said...

Sounds like a great GNO. I need one of those.

Megan said...

Karin Katherine said...

With the best family ever.
No fair!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

I'm so jealous sounds like so much fun! I was so waiting for a picture of the ruffle shirt!

Good to know you can be a catcher, just need a mitt ... LOL

Tara said...

ha ha you crack my ass up! The ruffles were amazing and after seeing that pile of Nachos I went back a couple days later with some co-workers and ordered me up some! Thriller was good and the coughing of a million peeps was getting a little annoying until I started choking on the smoke too, but we need to play again soon!

Tremayne and Dellany Higby said...

Represent!! I'm so glad to have enlightened you on the elusive beast known as produce. Too bad I missed thriller, sounds like I could have enlightened you ladies on how to handle some of that smoke intake as well HEHEHEHE. Come play more often my friend!

CLUFF FAMILY said...

Very entertaining B2F2S!

Annie Harper said...

I'm just glad you listened when I said do no speak unless spoken to. That was KEY.

You are supposed to thank me for simply being the freakin awesomestest person alive.

Hello. We watched Ratatatatatoulie and fell asleep on my couch on a Friday night.

I'm THAT awesome.
