And the answer is...
My parents came to visit on March 18th! Now, before you assume I am out of my stinking mind (which, for those of you who know me, you understand that I am most definitely out of my mind), I will explain how a picture of a barbecue represents my parents' visit. They came as a surprise to me on Friday, March 18th! Travis fooled me into thinking that a friend of his was coming to New York and needed a place to stay. Therefore, I knew that I needed to clean the house to prep for his "friend". I am very thankful that Travis told me to clean; I think I would have pummeled him if he had allowed my parents to show up at our home when I hadn't had a chance to make sure it was ready for them!
Therefore, Friday, after I came home from substitute teaching, I began helping Travis clean the rest of the condo. (Travis was home that Friday because he had stayed up way late the night before and hadn't gotten too much sleep.) At one point, whilst cleaning, Travis claimed that Susan (our beloved neighbor- I just adore her!) was at the door wanting to talk to me. At this point I am thinking, "Why right now out of all times?!" Don't get me wrong... she is super sweet and wonderful, but I was rushing to clean for Travis's "friend" for goodness's sake!!! As I rounded the corner and approached the door, expecting to see Susan, guess who came trompin' through the door!
...Sorry, just wanted to make sure you were paying attention. It was actually... MY PARENTS! Yayyyyyy!! I have been surprised three times in my life: my 16th birthday party, my engagement, and this visit. My jaw dropped to the wooden floor (still trying to get the splinter out of my chin). You know that look people give you when they are thinking, "Ha ha! We win!"... yeah. They got me.
"But Brittany," you say, "What does this have to do with a barbecue?" Weeeeeelllllll, I am SO glad you asked. However, first I must correct your use of a conjunction to begin a sentence... you know that is a no no. Tsk. Now, to answer your grammatically incorrect question, this has to do with the barbecue because my parents were super duper (oh yeah, I said it) generous and bought us a barbecue for our condo. We were grateful and stoked! Travis barbecued that night, and it was deeeeelicious!
Okie dokie! Ready, set, gooooooo:
Okay, okay, so I know that it isn't a "snap shot" per se, but it is a screen shot. Does that count? Guess what? You don't have a choice!!! Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!
