So, we decided to throw together a lil gathering to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with our friends. There isn't much to do in Dallas for kids on this day. There is a fun party on Lower Greenville if you are single and in your 20's. So, we put out the Bounce House and brought out the Pink Jeep, Bumper Cars and the rest of the plastic parade.
All went well, lots of friends, food, kids were playing, parents were having a drink, chatting, laughing, watching basketball
Stan's friends from Hockey showed up. ;) They call around 6:45ish and said they'd stop by. They are a married couple, no kids, but seem relatively harmless and very nice. All of a sudden, two cars come down the street. One with a Tiki torch hanging out of the sunroof. The other had Stan's friend, turned around backwards, pointing his finger out of the car saying, "Staaaaaaaaannn!" They had just left that Greenville party.
About 10 people piled out. One girl wearing a skirt I wore circa '89. She ran to the girls Pink Jeep and started riding it down the side walk. Another guy jumped in one of the bumper cars. A third girl, carrying the torch and a cigarette ran and jumped on Major's riding apparatus. Stan's friends asked us, "are you sure this is okay?"
While the neighbors all stood with their mouths hanging open and Stan and I with our eyes about to pop out of our head, I turned and said, "well - as long as they don't go in the house. "
Then, Major saw the chick on his motorcar and ran over there to her! Well, it was ugly but the crazy woman almost burnt lil Maa with her cigarette. So, I ran over and got her off. She grabbed her torch and Stan and I kicked them out.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! :D
