I recently made snacks for our youth group. Today the pastor dropped off my casserole dish that held the snacks.
I went to put away the dish and took the lid off because I don't store it with the lid on.
Candy canes may not seem out of the ordinary just over a month before Christmas. These candy canes however, have a life of their own. You see, my best friend moved to Pittsburgh a little over 3 years ago. The Christmas prior to her moving she came over and left these at my house one night, and knowing that she was going to be moving, I decided to play a little game.
When she started packing her belongings I had her husband hide these in a box with a card from me saying the game was on. She had to find a way to get them back to me, making her visit me or during one of my visits to her. For the last 3 years we've been passing these back and forth in creative ways.
This August I slipped them into her car just before she left my house to go back home. I haven't seen her since. However, since our church went on a missions trip to her church in October, she enlisted some help.
While I'm not sure the rules of the game require us to personally hide them, I think it's cheating for these to come back to me without a visit from her. Anyone agree that she needs to visit me to make up for this?
Either way, it was fun to find these and I can't wait to actually talk to her about them. She got me good and it was a fun treat that I certainly needed today. I miss you, Becky!
