When Ali Met Yeti

What’s new? My friend asked me at lunch the other day.

Did I lead with the fact that my last single son is getting married in October? No, I did not. Did I perhaps brag about our first grand-baby due in September? Negative.

I got a Yeti.

This was my big news and if you dare tell me that a Yeti is just an ordinary cup, I will tell you that your mother is just an ordinary mother. My friend looked at me dumbstruck. Huh?

Yes. Well. I got a Yeti. And because I was so dizzy with excitement about how life-changing my Yeti had been my sister Dorothy bought one, too!

I inhaled deeply then delivered in a single breath,

I take my Yeti everywhere. I’m like Linus with the blanket. I told Marsha about my Yeti love and the next time I saw her she had one!

Pausing briefly to take a sip of water feeling like JFK right before ‘“Ask not…’” I hurriedly pressed on.

Rebekah was the next sister to get one and then Judy. I’m telling you, my Yeti is everything!

The waiter filled our water glasses. I felt my eyes spiraling like a cartoon coyote as I took a bite of bread. Still chewing I recommenced.

My sisters and I also bought straws and Velcro handles for our Yetis which come in different sizes and colors. It’s like we’ve started an American Dolls Club with our Yetis…

I stopped talking and fell back into my chair (not unlike Meg Ryan as Sally at the conclusion of the café peroration). Expecting a barrage of Yeti questions, my friend instead looked me square in the face and asked about my grand-baby and the upcoming wedding. It’s like he wasn’t even listening.

Today I got this text from Joan.

Pierman peer pressure. It is real, y’all. I’m so glad none of us ever tried meth.

  1. Congratulations on the 3 events: son’s wedding, September grandchild and, last but not least, your Yeti. I hope all 3 things will give you great happiness. Happy drinking! Now, will you take your Yeti to the wedding? 👍❤

    1. I love that you get me. I bet some people reading don’t know I’m being silly. Grand baby is on the countdown and will be here any day now. And the wedding is less than two months away. We are incredibly excited!

  2. You already have enough emotions this year. The story on account of Yeti, it went great. It is good to get a smile from people. Oh! The color of the nails is not bad in the last photo although the Yeti takes the honors.

  3. OMG! And here I thought I was the only one geeked out by my Yeti. I gave everyone in the family one for Christmas. They didn’t get it until later and then I was awesome! 😈 Congratulations on the wonderful events happening in your life. 😊

    1. OMG indeed?! We’re potentially at the beginning of a cult. I really resist buying name brand anything but I do love my Yeti (and my Lululemons, shhhh). Thank you so much for dropping by. Always good to hear from you.

    1. I am probably the least brand conscious person I know but I really love this Yeti. Even in summer in Arizona my ice stays frozen. But listen, you and your Dr Who tumbler just keep on keepin’ on. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Of course it’s all embellished and purposely silly. I don’t love it that much but it has been fun to watch all my sisters go buy one too. Baby will be here by this time next week!
