Okay so I think I’ve been really informative this week with hair care products, Target finds and fitness……so let’s do a fun post…..this post kind of reminds me about how I feel when I watch “Party Down South”…..wow that is 30 minutes of my life I wish I could get back. Just kidding I will try as always to entertain you.
During the first year Mark and I were dating we traveled down to Ft. Lauderdale to his parents house for Thanksgiving. It is one of Mark’s favorite holidays (Christmas is mine) so it really works out perfectly on the whole splitting the holidays with the family thing. At the time I didn’t really ask questions about the logistics because little did I know Mark was piggybacking a softball tournament on the back end of this holiday. So who got to watch 2 straight days of grown men playing softball for 10 hours at a time????
I did actually have a fun time but this year I took my own car ;-)
Luckily I had my annual Board renewal to do so I had lots of time to take exam recertification questions. Okay so onto the story. In between some of the games we were having let’s call it a “picnic” on the grass in front of some of the cars of his teammates. So let me first tell you this was in a great part of town…
So I hope I painted that scene well enough for you because here is where it gets good. We are enjoying some adult libations having a few laughs when out of the corner of my eye I see this cruising at the top speed of 4 mph…
With one questionable looking child in the driver seat….another shady looking character riding shotgun and I believe one of their little sisters pushing the convertible because naturally it was either A) STOLEN or B) Clearly nobody had time to charge it or C) They had been riding in that thing up and down the block so the 7 minutes of battery life was gone.
So as this all kinds of amazing internal dialogue comes cruising being pushed by us….one of Mark’s friends was laughing about a play earlier in the day. The “driver” I believe he was 6 years old jumps out of the car and starts yelling at us. Granted there are about 5 grown men, two women and a few kids sitting (the kid was clearly outnumbered). His words (well I’ll put them how you can understand them)…”Hey what are you all laughing at???” We immediately started looking at each other going is this little tyke stepping to all of us. Next words out of his mouth I wish I was making this up “Aw yeah keep on laughing….I’m going to give yah something to laugh about”.
He starts walking back to the “car” screaming at his entourage “y’all get my BB gun….it’s on I’m going to show them”. I’m looking at Mark like what the is going on? I’m thinking in my head “does that corvette even have like a functional trunk??? Where would he stash this gun???”
At this point everyone is shaking their heads in total bewilderment and as the grown men begin to stand up to “assess the situation” the instigator hops back in the driver side and tells the minion in the back “let’s go ride out and get it we will be back for these fools”. As they are driving away all three of the “children” are straight up mean mugging us the whole way….I wish I could make this up.
