I had fun last night...a friend from high school called me around 9, & asked what I was doing last night...I said...well, reading, watching tv, eating leftover pizza, mac & cheese, etc....Sheri, "no, you're going out drinking with me & Bounce"...hahaha! They came over about an hour later, & we went out just to, the American Legion...for the karaoke, for heaven's sake!! Not to sing, just to watch & laugh, & bs with each other! And that was great! Especially cuz we werent close in high school, we knew each other, talked sometimes, but that was pretty much it. Well, except for the time in tenth grade that Bounce kicked my ass, across the street from the school...that was actually the one & only fistfight Ive ever been in! And, yes, she kicked my ass well & soundly *hanging head in shame*...I don't even remember why it was, but I'm sure that my smartass mouth had a bit to do with it...Holy cow, I was only 15, for heaven's sake!
She & Sheri were friends then, so I mostly listened & laughed last night! Bounce doesn't drink, but she's exactly the way I used to be in the 80's, no inhibitions, say & do anything. Sheri & I were saying 'Thank God she doesn't get drunk!' ;-)
Since we took my regular wheelchair last night (easiest to get in and out of a car), it's good that the Legion had a seat on the back stairs to the basement that I could sit on & ride down the stairs. So,Bounce picked me up out of my w/c and sat me on the seat, & buckled the velcro belt around me, and then said the standard line that everybody around here knows from Cedar Point...keep your hands and feet inside the ride...stay completely seated until the ride comes to a complete and final stop...enjoy your day at Cedar Point! hahaha! How could you not know that you were in for fun that night???
By the way, that one picture up there is the one that I got in the little tickets they have like lottery tickets..I didn't win $$, but I got a ticket with 1983 on it, and to us, that was a good sign...that's when we graduated high school! And, yes, I did drink last night, but not drunk...a screwdriver & a Bud Lite.
Geez, it's been WAY too long since I went out with my friends, not just someone else's friends or family! And we've already got together on FB & one of our guy friends from school wants to come next Thursday, when we're going to an actual bar.
I did glean some informative tidbits from the night...
If you're just sitting there, listening to the music, and not talking, the drunk guy next to you is going to invariably put his arm around you and pull you close, yelling, "What's wrong? " over and over...
It was definitely neat to go to the American Legion-to listen to people doing karaoke, instead of to a dance club, now that I'm in a w/c...good friends are more important than you realize sometimes...
Sheri was laughing really hard at the guy trying to hit on me...or laughing at the looks I was giving her... :-/...She said, 'Well, we're not teenagers anymore...'..I said 'That's why we're here at the Legion...looking for sugar daddies, right?'
