Oh to be twenty one again, How many times have we all said this? As you all know we are on the road for our son Tim's marriage, his bride to be Elisa is a welcome addition to our family who we accepted a long time ago, their wedding is this coming Saturday and the planning stage is in full force, the rehearsal dinner is Friday, Cindy and Elisa are going in the morning to make sure all the plans are in order for this.
Night before last Randy held a bachelor party for Tim and graciously invited me to join in, Cindy had plans with a friend to hang out while I was there, these plans fell through so dinner with Randy's girlfriend were made, I went to dinner with Randy, Tim and a few of their friends at a local bar and grill which went well, we returned to Randy's for the beginning of the party, the invitations were sent, the keg was in place and it all started, have any of you ever played "Beer Pong" I have heard of it but have never been involved, I watched a few games of this and listened to as much Rap as I could stand, I suggested a little Classic Rock and with a smile walked out the door. It's funny to see the boys you remember as little kids interacting with their friends just like you did at 21, pretty scary to have to admit they are now adults so to say, but also don't they say "the terrible two's only last until they are twenty one"
Cindy ended up with no plans after dinner with Abby so I walked back over to see her for a minute, Randy lives across the street from our old house and we are staying with a friend next door to it so my walk was a short one, Miss Dixie needed a walk so we hooked up her leash and walked back across the street, Randy is now about to have a fit as it just ain't right for Mom to show up at her son's bachelor party, we agree and I am walking Cindy back across the street, all of the guys at the party are about 21 an call my wife Mom so they walk out the door with us, sitting on the porch for "just a minute" to say Hi to them all as they have not seen her in a while lasted about an hour, then "Little Cindy" who bought our house saw us and walked across the street with her husband who joined the party, Randy is freaking out now because there are two women who are not strippers here and one is his Mom.
OK now it is up to me to get this all straightened out because I have now messed up the party, we go back across the street and the boys went back to the party without Mom or me, I did have a good time interacting with the small boys who are now all grown up and after it was all said and done all of the guys who were there were happy to see Mom and think it was pretty cool we showed up, Randy even admitted that he thought it was good. I have decided that after hanging with these twenty something year olds who were no problem that I no longer wish to be twenty one, thirty is looking better now.
