Have you ever been way out of town visiting friends?
Have you ever spent all day out on the town, bar hopping, and getting loaded?
Have you ever come out of the bathroom line to discover that they had completely ditched your ass?
So when you are out in an unfamiliar town, and you find yourself ditched, what do you do?
a Search the bar? – You're not going to recognize anybody.
a Head outside and look up and down the street? - You won't see them.
a Dash like mad to where the cars are? - Cars 'Yes'. People 'No'.
a Head back to bar, search, return to vehicles. – As futile as the first time.
a Call them on their cell phone! - You don't have any of their cell phones programmed in, and forget (remember the drunk part) that you have one in an email.
a Try Facebook. Mr. Laugh has it on his iPhone! - Fail.
a Call Mr. Laugh's home, 350 miles away, get his high school aged son and say, "Yeah, I'm out with your mom and dad, and they totally ditched my ass…" – That one worked!
Turns out, the group was big enough, that everybody thought I was with them when they went to the next bar, about 4 blocks away. And then they thought I was outside in the courtyard.
But all is well that ends well, and it gave me blog material, so I can't complain. And they didn't shave my eyebrows when I fell asleep later back at Gwen's.
