Bloggers' meet? Nope, just us gals relaxing with some lime juice after a day out in the sun on our recent mid-week break!
My Dad and I just had this funny conversation over the phone:
Dad: What’s up?
Me: A group of us food bloggers are meeting up soon. (Okay sports, no clues, no comments on the participants, place, or anything … indulge me, please!)
Dad: (Begins to laugh) Oh, is it just a meeting or is there going to be any cooking there?
Me: Oh, apparently we’re all supposed to make and carry some stuff there, not sure whether it’s meant to be presents for the others or to be consumed there.
Dad: (and me, now both laughing) Watch out! Blogging is fun only as long as you write about food without having to actually cook.
Me: (dissolved in helpless laughter) True. I can’t make any snacks so I’ve asked if I can buy stuff and dole it out … I also have to go for some wedding-related ceremony that morning.
Dad: So take some stuff from the meal there and distribute it among your friends. OR, take something somewhat moist or liquid, so you can pass it off as fresh, just cooked?
(More guffawing from both sides.)
Dad: Beware, you may have to close down your blogs if you actually meet and sample each others’ wares – these things have to be handled carefully!
Phone drops from my hand as I double over with laughter ...
