My Friend "Nan"

In my last post I celebrated the fact that I have no more traveling this summer.  However, that doesn't mean that my traveling days are over!  This September, I will be with four dear blog friends in Nantucket.  Can. not. wait!
Anyway, I have started telling S and J* about the trip and how I will be flying into Boston.  I guess due to the males species not attune to really listening to us S knowing more about Boston (US History as well as the Boston Red Sox), he completely forgot the Nantucket part of the trip.  Thus, the following conversation ensued:

S:  Now when are you going to Boston?
Me:  September.  But I'm just flying into Boston.  I'm really going to visit Nantucket.
S:  Nantucket?  That's a funny name.
Me:  Not really.  But I will have fun.  These girls are great fun.
S:  So, which one is Nan?  Where does she live?
Me:  What?!?!?!
S:  Nan.  Nan Tucket.

Oh, well.  I'm guessing not everyone knows about Pawley's Island or Edisto either...


*Not posting the boys' names anymore as you never know who's out there.  No one has harassed or stalked me that I know of.  Just taking precautions! :)

  5. That is so cute and I am so happy that you have it documented here for a decade or so down the road to remind him. :) Glad you're home and settling back in. With all the summer craziness, it is amazing how quickly it really goes by.

    Hope you're doing well. Thinking of you.

    PS-You asked about my pictures. I get most of mine from www.weheartit.com. It is a great compliation site and you can search images too.

  8. I've always wanted to go to Nantucket. So cute about "Nan." My oldest son had an imaginary teacher when he was little: Mrs. Sippy. Guys definitely communicate differently than girls! Sigh!
