Weekend Recap

I worked Friday afternoon, but as soon as I hit the door I called up my gal pals for a rousing game of Bar Bonanza. We hit up every bar in town and played the who-can-get-the-most-suckers-to-buy-them-drinks game. I won. As usual.

Somewhere around 2AM Saturday, I had a Red Bull and was within the state of mind to think that it might actually give me wings. I took a flying leap off of the top of some random Suburban (sorry for the dent!), and landed face first on the pavement. After a quick trip for some stitches over my left eye, I hit the bed for a 4 hour power nap.

We hit the lake most of the day, and I showed people how awesome I am on a jet ski. After getting a sunburn that turned out to actually be third-degree burns, I slapped on some aloe and we hit the streets again to get a neon tan. I knocked out some guy at a local pub who thought it would be wise to pat me on the back (ouch!). When he regained consciousness, I apologized, he laughed, and he bought everyone drinks. He also said I should seriously think about boxing professionally.

I woke up somewhere around noon on a friend's floor with an empty bottle of Listerine in one hand and a full bottle of Newcastle in the other. Ah, Sunday. I began the day with a customary confession of sins at my Catholic church, but beat the church crowd to lunch where I met the cop for some end-of-weekend Bloody Marys. We spent most of the afternoon cruising in his patrol car, pulling people over, and using the "meow" thing from Super Troopers...

Yeah. Have you figured out that I'm full of crap? My weekend was nothing like that. here's how my real weekend went:
Friday - Work until 10:00PM, hit up the cop's house for some food and Halo and snoozing.
Saturday - Hit the mother-in-law's pool for most of the day, no sunburn. Go to work until 10:00PM again. Turn down an invite to party from the gal pals, so exhausted. hit the cop's house for more grub and Halo and sleep.
Sunday - Don't make it to church, because God understands when I need to sleep in. Get a call that says I don't have to go to work. Go see Angels and Demons with the cop (pretty good!). Head home early after more grub and Halo.

All in all, a pretty nice, restful weekend. But I know it's definitely more boring that what it could have been...

With weekends like that you need the full five day work week to recoop for the next!

I guess I'm getting old, but I would prefer the real weekend that you had over the imaginary one. I like quiet, restful weekends. Glad you enjoyed yours.

Mine was all work in the rain. And clocking over 200 miles on the car by the time it was all said and done.
