I am fortunate enough to be acquainted with some crazy people, you know the type, always calling attention to themselves, even when it’s unintentional. I live with a couple of those on the road, both Big and Josh could be described that way. I am the quiet one of the bunch, not to say I don’t have a good time, but I can’t manage to play quite like they do. When I left for California, I said, in my outside voice, “Ok, you have three days, a birthday, and a $1,000 spending limit – you need to behave.” But that was the only stipulation I put on them. They tend to tone down some when I’m around, I never know what kind of calls to expect when I’m gone.
By the end of the first 24 hours they had been cut off by the bartender, prayed for by a stranger and one of them had almost puked and not because of alcohol. They are just those kind of guys.
I have girls that I like to be around that are similar, today I got an invitation to join a Color Run in Colorado Springs. Now, I don’t know if they were just being nice in inviting me, but I am thrilled that they did. These girls are the kind that have a party wherever they go, and to get to be a part of the party makes me feel all kinds of special.
The hardest part about this group, so far, was deciding on a team name that wouldn’t offend anyone. I am not always successful, but I really work hard at trying not to offend, it’s not always easy, but I try. So here are some of the fabulous names that were suggested: Team Birthday Bitches; Team Aren’t We Fabulous, Team Me and My Colored Bitches, Team Color Commentary. I had to draw the line at Me and My Colored Bitches, I just couldn’t imagine what anyone not at the Color Run would think of that – fortunately, there are some awesome girls in the group who kept working on ideas – we are Team Too Too Fabulous – oh, and that’s because they think we need to wear tutus on this adventure, my ass should never be showcased in a tutu – but I’m in anyway. I am so looking forward to this, it isn’t until September, but how much fun will this weekend be! Thanks for the invite!
