Did I Just Say That???

This weekend was the much anticipated Girls Night Out extravaganza with my friends Elaine, Patty, Alison, Amy... and my mom!

Al was the first to arrive at the bar for our karaoke action. We thought she was kidding when her text message, hurrying us to her rescue, said she was among the "short bus" riders... but she wasn't.

One man ended up sitting at a pub table right next to me, eating his Starbursts and inquiring about my song preferences. I didn't want to be rude by ignoring him, but I also didn't want to encourage further conversation. Let's just say, it made for some awkward moments, and the girls thought this situation was hilarious and were brought to tears of laughter at my expense.

At one point, The Champ, as he called himself, was called to sing a song, and during his performance, Patty told me, "Be a sport, and give him his first kiss."

"I don't think I'd be his first kiss," I corrected, "Just because he's special, doesn't mean he's not getting any. Haven't you seen the movie I Am Sam?" And just when I uttered the words "I Am Sam," there was a lull in the music.... FML!

My favorite part of the night was when Amy was about to sing and made a comment about wanting some free beer. The DJ responded, "Free beer is on February 30th," to which Amy gasped, "Really?! That's awesome!" She later admitted that she couldn't believe they were promoting the event so soon!

It was another great night. I never laugh so much as when I'm with this group. Love you guys!
