First!

Every year my five siblings and I have a little New Year's Eve competition; the first one to call Mama Gumola wins. We've added a few rules this year to make it interesting; no phone calls are placed until:
    1.) The ball officially drops and Dick Clark says it's official.
    2.) A kiss is had with a significant other.
    3.) A sip of champagne is enjoyed.
Rewind to five minutes until midnight and I'm sitting on the couch with David, glass bottle of champagne in one hand, cordless phone in the other with my index finger hovering over the number I have set to speed dial home.
    He:"Comfy? *snicker*"
    Me:"Wait. Have you seen my Blistex? Smooch. Gulp. *beep boop beep boop* DID I WIN? Am I caller number one?"
I swear, this year it felt like I was trying to win the adult equivalent of Hannah Montana concert tickets from a local radio station.

    That made me bust out laughing. I might have to introduce this with Mama Chee.
