Thanks to The Daily Prompt.
At one time I was a party animal. That was especially the case when I was a senior in college and living off campus in an apartment with 3 of my friends. We hosted so many parties that if you stayed over so many times you earned a bath robe of your own with our apartment number (12) stitched on the lapel of your robe.
“But that was yesterday, and yesterday is gone.”
Today is more of an obligation to attend friends parties. Our goal is not to be the first couple to leave. “But honey, if we leave now we can still make it home to watch the “British Hour” on the television!
Speaking of parties, there seems to be an increase in “theme parties” especially for women. It all started with Mary Kay I think, but now we have “Pampered Chef”, “Thirty One”, and lots of others. I know I like them because I get to leave the house. I mean what guy wants to be around 10 – 15 women all yaking at the same time.
We need some guy parties. Like Tim Taylor “Tool Time” parties where we can buy the latest drill, or a tool belt that holds 20 different but essential tools that we might need around the house. Maybe a bowling party where we can find the latest shirts that will drive our wife’s crazy. Or how about a “Click and Clack” party where we can trade the latest tricks on tuning our cars or getting more gas mileage.
