We had fun at our St. Patrick's Day party. One of us, and I won't name names but his initials are Marvin, got drunk. On two Mike's Hard Lemonades. I knew we were in trouble when we walked in and Mike's Hard Lemonade was available. You know that's Marvin' girly drink of choice.
There was all sorts of liquor for grownups available too, that was Irish-themed. Bailey's, Jameson, and then also regular red wine, stuff like that. You know what people should always have available at parties? Bottles of water. Just those little aquapods. That is what I wanted, and I know you're all, Where's your lampshade, June? Whoo! Back that ass up.
But I always make sure to have water at MY parties, I say sanctimoniously, and they are always the biggest thing to go. People like to pace themselves, as well. So even if they are throwing back the Jamesons or the Mike's Hard Lemonade.
I knew Marvin was drunk when Iwas in the living room talking to a couple, and Marvin walked in in the middle of our conversation and said,
"YEAH! I HAD THE SAME THING HAPPEN TO ME ONE TIME WHEN…"
I was all wow, put down the megaphone. That's when I knew he'd had a second Mike's Hard Lemonade. Have I mentioned what an accomplished drinker Marvin is?
The other exciting news is that Marvin, in all his drunken glory, managed to find someone at the party who grew up next door to our house! The one we live in right now! Marvin went right home (the party was at a neighbor's) and got our old picture of this house
and the guy totally knew who this kid was! And this kid is not a boy! This kid is a girl! He grew up with her! And guess what else? Our street was a dead end, and two houses down from us was all field, and they used to play baseball in the field all day. Doesn't that sound a lot better than the 89 houses that are there now?
So that was cool.
I have to get ready for work now. Marvin doesn't feel well after his two malt-liquor-based beverages. So I have to go hear about that too. I had 900 pieces of cabbage last night, so I hope there are no humiliating incidents at work. That's all I have to say about that.
