The evening consisted of eating, drinking, laughing, playing basketball, eating, laughing, making fun of yours truly, laughing, and laughing. I believe it was Jonathan that brought up the old Jello joke and I still to this day do not know how they found out (No, I'm not elaborating. It's an old inside joke and that's that). There were memories of our Competitive Speech and Band days and it was informally decided that Cap'n and I were the King and Queen of Nerd-dom seeing as how we were the only two of our little group that were in both Band and Competitive Speech. All hail us.
The children ran amuck. As usual.
My husband got drunk. That doesn't happen a lot. It was kind of fun, though. He's more fun when he's drunk.
The Photographer and I were here in the house for some reason and she was sitting on a barstool next to my kitchen bar while I made a fresh pitcher of sweet tea. She was quietly watching me then said, "Wow....you're all domesticated and stuff." I said, "Sweetie, I've been doing this housewife schtick for nearly half my life now. It's what I do." And then I got depressed and started looking for happy pills and booze. But I digress....
I personally suck at using the camera for commemorating events. My mother and sister cringe at my irresponsibility in that department. But I did let the kids take the camera for awhile. Here is what we got of the evening:
That would be Mr. Photographer and Cap'n and Sam in a sweaty, humid game of pickup basketball.
Cap'n said he never thought he'd leave Texas and still have to complain about the humidity.
I'm going to call Mr. Photgrapher to babysit sometime. I'd call Cap'n, but he's far away and I think he's afraid of children, lol. Or maybe it's just MY children.
And it's simply not possible to turn kids loose with a camera and not discover shots like these.
You gotta have a picture of the dog. Or a dozen pictures of the dog....
And elbows. They're very photogenic.
Hey, look! My roses are blooming!
My dearest Cap'n,
I know it wasn't your usual crew of friends, but I sincerely hope you had fun. I enjoyed most of the evening (you know which parts I didn't, lol) and just hearing you say a cuss word was worth cleaning my house.
The Queen of Nerd-dom
