it must have been something you said
I just died in your arms tonight
-Cutting Crew, (I Just) Died in Your Arms
Thirty Days of Thanksgiving - Day #13 Today I am thankful to have such a great group of friends on my Journey.
Our Sunday School class, known as the Journey Class, is an awesome group of people. Tonight's social activity will certainly be one for the record books - we hosted a Murder Mystery Dinner. The theme was an 80's class reunion, where guests at the party were members of the class and we were all trying to figure out what happened to "David," a classmate who'd been murdered 2 days before the reunion.
Before the party, we were emailed our character assignments. Derek and I were "Lenny" and "Linda," the social outcasts in high school who'd gone on to become rockstars. Derek/Lenny is the lead singer in our band and Linda/I am the drummer. We went to the reunion to rub our fame in the faces of those who were so mean to us in high school.
(Please note the accessories for both of us - my genuine 80's vintage slap bracelet, Lenny's necklaces, the drumsticks in the top of my boot , the Wii guitar... we went all out!)
What fun!! Everyone really got into character and it was quite an evening of intrigue. There was even another murder during the event. All in all, it was a great time and I'm thankful for friends who are willing to plan such a unique activity. And I'm grateful that they won't kick Derek out of church tomorrow for showing up with a skull and crossbones tattoo on his neck.
