To all of our friends on St. Thomas:
Tuesday, August 28, 2012
We love you, and we've had a wonderful 20-25 years with you. And we know that you want to spend time with us before we leave on our travel adventures.
But please, can we stop with the meals already?
We've had the seven course Italian meal - fabulous food, lots of vegs, but two desserts to which I had trouble saying no thank you.
Then there were the potluck dinners with wine, hors d'oeuvres, main dish, sides, desserts.............
And the breakfasts..........
And the lunches........
Yes, we want to hang out, spend time before we go, say goodbye. And yes, we very much appreciate your hospitality.
But please, our luggage has clothing that fits NOW. I don't have room to carry multiple sizes.
So can we please say goodbye over a salad? Oatmeal and tea for breakfast? Grilled fish maybe? Fresh fruit instead of cake?
