If you read below, you'll see that we had a wild party on Sunday, April 14, 2013. We've also got it on tape and a few of the stories that were read. Below is the invitation.Well we've all been through some crap, so it's time to laugh it all off. So I have put together a party. I need you to FOCUS on the information and instructions so you do not get confused. Okay? Are you with me?
Here we go:
1. The name andtheme of the party is: GUESS WHAT THE DAMN HELL HAPPENED TO ME!
2. Location: The Redstone Grill in the Plymouth Meeting Mall, You know by Dave and Busters. Itis NOT inside the mall and there is parking.
3. The time is 3:00 p.m. (We have to be out of the place by 5:45 p.m.)
4. The date is Sunday, April 14, 2013
5. I am not picking up this tab. This is not a working lunch or meeting for my books and itis nobody's birthday party. So, get your wallets out and I am sorry we are all dealing with the recession. We are getting one bill and we are splitting it.Okay. Drinks and dessert--soup to nutz. Divided up. I do not want anybody crying that Joe Blow ate 14 appetizers and drank 4 beers and I only had a breadstick. Got it?
6. We have a private room and it holds 23 people.
7. We are doing the guest list on an RSVP basis. When we are at 23 people, we have to close the party.
8. Do not get dressed up. Be casual and comfortable.
Here is the way the event will be. FUN!!!!
Sort of a VENT party. You have to tell a story. You have to type the story. Do not hand write WHAT THE DAMN HELL HAPPENED TO YOU. Got it? Turn your story in to me or bring it with you the day of the party. I will not cheat and read it. I, too, want to have fun and be surprised. It will go in a box and be numbered. Guests of the party will get to choose a number of a story (you won't know your number). We will be going around the room and everyone gets to pick a number. The person who picks your number will read your story and vice verso for you. Ten minute read tops so do not write a novel. Okay. They will stand a read your story. Everyone will be quiet and listen to WHAT THE DAMN HELL HAPPENED TO YOU. Do not put your name on your story. Try not to put anything in the story that a person there with us can identify you by it. You can identify yourself after it is read. Okay. You got that? Once you identify yourself, the gift you brought you can present to the person who read your story. You can Email your story to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not make a face when the person is reading your story. You will give yourself away.
The Gift You Buy: You are to purchase something from a store and it CANNOT cost over $20. I also mean, if you find something that cost $400 and it is on sale, and it cost $19.99, you can buy it. Have it wrapped. You can get anything you like. If a man gets nightgown--he's stuck with it or he can barter or try to exchange with another person. You can get an animal gift, wine, beer, earrings, a food item, a picture frame, a book, dog food, a game, a household item, a kid's toy, socks--anything other than a gift certificate. Use your imagination. You guys can put receipt with the gift so person can return it. Try t get a unisex gift. There were some great gifts given at the last party. Very creative. You can also buy different things that total $20.
Write about whatever or whomever you like. Who took your money? Hate your boss, mother in law or do you love them all? Tell us your secret. You got a pet you want to talk about? Have you traveled to an exotic place or have an exotic experience? Who is very interesting to you? What situation has pissed you off? What is the funniest thing that ever happened to you? Who is your best friend? Why are you embarrassed? Are you trying to accomplish something that’s not working out or do you have a health problem? What are you the worst at? Do you have a hero? What do you do really well? Is somebody making you feel really good these days? Are you sad? What have you taken on that is simply too much and you want to throw in the towel? Who has your stuff? Who loves you a whole lot? What is the dumbest thing you ever did? Who’s the dumbest person you ever did? Have you had some good luck you want to share? Have you met any nuts lately?
Well, people, just pick a topic and write yourself up. We’ll be listening on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 3:00 p.m.
I think all of us need to have some fun.
Whoever is not interested. You know I won’t be mad.
Bye Everyone. I love you all.
