Party On, Garth

Posted on: Sunday 06/10/2018 03:28:56

Today my sister hosted a graduation party for the son of a long time family friend. My sister babysat the friend, and then her son. The teens had a good time. No alcohol was allowed.

At 5:00, it became "adult time", which just ended at 11:00. Of course, alcohol was mandatory. We had a huge thunderstorm. The whole back of the yard flooded within 15 minutes. It looked like there was a pond in the middle of the yard. Afterwards it quickly drained. I could hear the water rushing in the creek from the patio, 40 yards away. I walked down, and the creek was nearly over its four foot bank.

The highlight of "adult time" was passing around balloons for that helium voice thing. A ten-year-old girl, whose parents let participate, treated us to two Lady Gaga songs, and one by Katy Perry. Ten. I did All About That Bass, and TNT. Yes, embarrassing, I know.

At the end of the night, I was in a room with eight people, including myself. Two, whom represented the publicized 53 percentile, heard "Laurel". Six, whom were in the 47 percentile, heard "Yanny". I hate math and statistics.

Tomorrow, we hit the Columbus Arts Festival downtown. I'm looking forward to perhaps buying some interesting art pieces, and breaking my diet by patronizing food trucks. I'll pass on the elephant ears due to all the powdered sugar, but watch out corn dogs and deep fried pickles on a stick.

    It’s Yanny. It’s always Yanny.

    Fair food means funnel cake for me. Carbs and sugar be damned.

    Brandy drenched, chocolate coated cherries!

  • Fritz The Bootlegger Says:
    A food you will never find at a carnival/county fair here in the US.

    Now, remove the brandy and deep fry the chocolate cherry? Absolutely.

  • lunamor Says:
    Hmmm, not so sure about that. Brandied cherries are a thing some people can in the U.S. I bet there's a county fair or two where you can buy them.
