Life of The Party
Life of the Party?
Blogfest #1 Hosted by Jenn Duffy-Pearson
Driving home from Pennsylvania, Marty had plenty of alone time to think about what all had transpired. His trip from Michigan to Pennsylvania had a specific purpose. One of his best childhood friends was getting married and he was going to the bachelor part. Thankfully, one of the other fellas from the old neighborhood had offered to host the part. Otherwise, he would never have been able to slip out of the hotel room unnoticed.
The seven of them had met at the restaurant. It was Jan's favorite restaurant, Mongolian Buffet. After an hour of eating and some drinking, the troop moved on to a local micro brewery. The ambiance was delightful and the beer tasted better and better with each glass full.
He remembered returning to the hotel. He remembered tipping the waitress with a $100 dollar bill at the beginning of the night so he wouldn't forget or run out of cash. He remembered making certain everyone was comfortable.
What he didn't remember, and only found on Facebook by chance, was wearing a lampshade on his head. He didn't recall taking his clothes off and dancing on the table tops. He didn't remember most of the night.
All that long drive home, Marty thought over and over about the night and how in the world he could have become the life of party? What would his family think if they saw those? What will his wife say?
