A letter

So a letter arrived at my house recently. It said something like "Hey Brittany, you've done some cool stuff and we want you and three of your closest friends to come to DC in June." It went on to say "Your way is paid, but your three friends have to foot their own bill." Cool.

There was more to the letter, including the words "Business attire" and "Gala" and "one minute speech" and other words that made me cringe just a little.

But the thing that really made me take a double take was a list of names under the title "Board of Selectors"...names like:

Hank Aaron
Corbin Bernsen
Ellen Burstyn
Laura W. Bush
Lee Ault Carter
Cris Collinsworth
Kirk Douglas
Michael Douglas
Whoopi Goldberg
Teresa Heinz Kerry
Hon. Trent Lott
Scott McClelland
Elliott Roosevelt, III
Neil Simon
Lesly Stahl
Kathleen Kennedy Townsend
Cicely Tyson
Chris Wallace
and those are just the ones I recognized off the bat. There are more. Yikes, yikes, yikes.

Me thinks I'm gonna need to go shopping for some fancy dud's cuz my jeans and t-shirts just aren't gonna be okay for this event.
