I hinted the other day that I went to my bachelor party on Sunday. Well, that's not exactly right. It was a BBQ at a friend's house. And it was in no way about my bachelorhood. But it's the closest I'm gonna get, and I'm okay with that.
So, Sunday I went over to to a cook out at my buddies, Howard & KC's place. KC's childhood friend, Kelly & her husband, Chuck. (Howard and I used to work together, and now have basically the same job at different companies. KC is the ex-roommate of an ex-co-worker. They met @ my housewarming party.) I've known everybody here for 5 or 6 years.
After a couple strong rum and 7up's the pork burgers hit the grill.
We hung out on the back deck for a while, talking, laughing, and having a good time. And 'Yes', that's a Cabbage Patch doll.
Then, it became time to make for S'mores. They had the largest marshmallows I had ever seen. They were the size of a Kelly's fist!
And not all the marshmallows made it into the S'mores.
After calming down from the sugar rush, we broke out the game of 'Encore'. The basic gist of the game is that you split into teams (girls vs. guys) and then you roll a die and move around a board. Based on the color you land on, you draw a card and get a word off it. Then, the teams take turns going back and forth singing a song with the word in it until one team is stumped.
Eventually, I needed to go home, so we did a "lightening round" and the gals won.
Hanging out with good friends, good laughs, good times. Isn't that what a bachelor party is supposed to be?
Note: Over the weekend, I will probably be taking SCOPE-TECH private for a day or so. DON'T PANIC! While I am busy getting my physical house ready for my new life, I'm going to take some breaks and redesign the blog, too.
Nothing too radical, but while I'm moving things around, I'd rather not have people see it all messy.
Gotta get the place looking nice for all those wedding pictures I'll be posting soon.
