a fun little email exchange

This first email is from my mom to all of us:

Thank you all for a super fun weekend.  Thanks for all your help with meals (providing/preparing) and clean-up.  I LOVED it!  AND I LOVE YOU!!!

Had the same trouble last night with the garage door as we did in the morning.  After some time, Dad noticed that the bag of pop cans had fallen off the garbage can and was blocking the sensor.  Nice, easy fix!  Smart guy!!!

Now for the things I've found around the house that don't belong to me!

  • bra (I did a little editing here because my mom actually noted the SIZE of the bra)
  • 2 Hockey books
  • Dove men+care body and face wash
  • Garnier Fructis fortifying shampoo
  • green sundress
  • some misc. Legos
  • Peanuts toothbrush (blue handle)
  • white extension cord (maybe belongs here, but I can't remember seeing it before last night)
  • some hangers (small, some w/clips) (maybe these were here too, but I think some of you brought some)
  • black brush w/red band on handle and red tips on bristles
  • brown or maroon hair clip (claw?)
  • light pink or off-white elastic pony tail band
  • SolTerre shampoo (made exclusively for Days Inn)
  • red Fruit of the Loom shorts (kid-size)
  • red "I Play Hard (pic of baseball) shirt (kid-size)
  • tan Dr. Scholls sandals
  • fireworks

There's some extra food in the fridge too.  In fact, there was more than there is now b/c we ate some things already.

  • baby carrots
  • bagels
  • hershey's syrup
  • Panera's raspberry cream cheese
  • guacamole (sp?)
  • tomatoes
  • grated cheese
  • sour cream
  • anything else you're missing????  let me know!

And then Gwen replied with:

Hi mom,

I can say that most of the items on this list belong to us.  I knew I should have packed up the night before or gotten up earlier to do it before church, but I was so tired.  I will star the things I know belong to us in the e-mail you sent.  Sorry...

We had a wonderful time, too!

  • bra * (how embarrassing)
  • 2 Hockey books (we brought those, but they are for the Billingtons)
  • Dove men+care body and face wash
  • Garnier Fructis fortifying shampoo
  • green sundress *
  • some misc. Legos *
  • Peanuts toothbrush (blue handle) * (this is actually Lydia's toothbrush)
  • white extension cord (maybe belongs here, but I can't remember seeing it before last night)
  • some hangers (small, some w/clips) (maybe these were here too, but I think some of you brought some)* but no need to get them back; we have plenty
  • black brush w/red band on handle and red tips on bristles *
  • brown or maroon hair clip (claw?)
  • light pink or off-white elastic pony tail band  ? quite possibly, but again, we have more than enough
  • SolTerre shampoo (made exclusively for Days Inn)
  • red Fruit of the Loom shorts (kid-size) * think they are Jake's.  I thought they were balled up in his red shorts, but apparently not.
  • red "I Play Hard (pic of baseball) shirt (kid-size)*
  • tan Dr. Scholls sandals*
  • fireworks

And then Dan (I guess before he read Gwen’s email) replied with:

i think the bra is Mark's, except the technical term for it is a "manssiere" or a "bro"

Mark responded with:

You're hilarious Dan.  For your information, I  wear a 32c

And then came a reply from Rich:

The carrots, bagels, and cream cheese were brought by me, but you can just keep and use them for eating “and different things.”

I also thought the green sundress was mine, but I see mine is still in my closet.

And finally one more from Mom:

I wish you all had left more stuff.  The interaction was fun.  We'll get your stuff to you asap.
