Let me bring you up to speed...
There is a meeting for the New England Modern Quilt Guild this coming Saturday, May 1st in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Portsmouth is 2 hours away and the meeting is at 3 in the afternoon and I reeeaaalllyyy want to go.
I need to get my business associate (Mom) to give me the afternoon off.
If you see her, will you put in a good word for me?
Here, I will give you some phrases for ammunition:
"Rhea never takes the day off..."
"Rhea works so hard..."
"Rhea just worked a half day on her last day off, so you could call it evens..."
"Pleeeaaassse, Moooommmm... I promise I'll never ask for anything ever again...."
(Probably that one'll only work if you are me)
Anyways, keep your fingers crossed that it all works out.
I will let you know what my business associate decides...
