The Lady Stag Boosters were gonna bring the molded salads for the Stadium Fund money raiser; the Antlerette moms would do the casseroles. Mustang Mart would donate sweet tea.
Things looked hunky dory until Hollie Jean Burmeister told Rose Ellen Shackleford she’d bring a wienie casserole instead of a molded salad — “nobody likes salads, anyway.”
Well, that got off with Rose Ellen. She told it to Bobbi Gail, who already had three molded salads ready. Tell Bobbi Gail, you might as well blow the siren. The Boosters fell backside over tea kettle over it. Allison Tuttle said she’d just bring a loaf of bread. Harmony Schuster said she’d bring a tub of margarine for Allison’s bread. Juanita Bickford planned to be sick the night of the supper, but said Hollie Jean should eat more salads, “maybe she’d shed an inch or two from her you know where.” Fabrice Ketchum said she’d feed her molded salad to the dogs.
So we ended up casserole-heavy at the supper. Hollie Jean swears she didn’t say what they say she said, but Fabrice told me Bobbi Gail told her Rose Ellen called not ten minutes after she heard it, which makes me believe Hollie Jean really did say what Fabrice says Bobbi Gail says Rose Ellen says she said.
The covered dish supper came out pretty good, though. We raised enough money to clean that tacky writing off the restroom walls.
