...the kids had one of those parties you always see happen in movies!
We went out for a night of fun with the guys, meeting up with Dave and Jay for Winking Lizard (hot wings, burgers, etc) in Macedonia for dinner at 6:30, and then killed some time before meeting Randy, Larry, and Larry's boys Kyle and Tyler to see Pirates of the Caribbean III at 9:00.
We had plenty of time to kill before the guys showed up at the theater since dinner went faster than expect. Not a problem.
Everyone was seated, the lights dimmed, more advertisements, more trailers, and finally the movie started... I'd guess it was less than 10 minutes into the movie, and the movie stopped and all the emergency lights came on. Turns out power was out for the entire shopping area and surrounding neighborhood. (Randy and Larry saw a transformer was on fire on their drive home!)
Everyone got passes to come back for a movie some other time. Traffic wasn't too bad with police directing. We were home by 10:15. As we were getting close to home I joked with Brett that the cats would be surprised we were home so early - that they were probably having a party!
Brett let me out of the car before pulling into the garage, and as I passed by the shelf coming in the back door I grabbed a spare pack of stray beers leftover from our last parties here. So Brett came in and saw this:
(Ignore the mess - we're emptying closets, unloading bookshelves, packing etc - all in preparation for the move!)
Brett freaked out, thinking someone broke in while we were gone! LOL Ummm...weren't we JUST joking about the cats having a party!? And check out Tucker, with his eyes all aglow from the flash:
This next one looks like he's drunk, but he was actually just starting to shake his head as I took the pic....good shot! LOL
(I think he just can't handle his beer!)
