So, here I am blogging a month later again. Eventually, I'll get faster at this and blog more often. Right. I can feel your faith in me slipping away as I continue to make these empty promises. At least I have the excuse that I've been busy.
June 12: Lily's Bachelorette Party
My friend Lily is getting married in September, but we had a bachelorette party for her in June. Lily flew in from San Francisco and Liz, another friend, came in from Portland. We had a great time and ate so much food that I was ready to burst. I had Eggs Benedict for the first time ever and I loved them! See the next post for details...
Lily had the classiest penis straw I have ever seen. In fact, it was so fancy that the waiter commented that he liked her "crazy straw." Once he approached the straw and realized that it was a penis, he blushed and said, "Oh! I didn't realize it was a penis."
Lily and Liz both stayed at my place. The three of us and Ann-Marie spent Saturday enjoying brunch and book stores before heading out for the night. We had drinks at the Dane, followed by dinner at The Haze. It was an Asian and American BBQ place. It was not the best BBQ I have ever had; nothing is better than Dad's bbq chicken, after all. It was the best BBQ I've had in Madison, though. Good portions and flavorful.
Then, we had fancy drinks at Opus...and that is when Ruby became integral to our party. As I began to drink my second martini at Opus, Ruby ordered a chocolate and orange martini. Ruby had three sips of her drink the whole night. When we started to leave, she made a stop at the ladies restroom.
She left her scarf on the chair outside the women's restroom; she was feeling the effects of her three sips at this point so I cannot vouch for what compelled her to do this. When she came back out, her scarf was gone. She did not realize this until she came back upstairs and someone asked, "Ruby, where's your scarf?" She went back to the ladies room to see if she had just forgotten it. Her scarf was gone. Now, a lesser woman might have just let this slide. No doubt, I would have given the scarf up for lost and moved on. Not Ruby. The Opus is a pretty small place, but it was packed that Saturday night and Ruby was on a mission. Ruby found her scarf. I unfortunately did not witness her discovery, but the story occupied us for at least the next twenty minutes. Therefore, I do not feel bad about recording it for posterity now.
Ruby: Hey, where did you get that scarf?
Thief: Oh, I bought it at the store.
Ruby: Well, that looks like my scarf that I left outside the bathroom.
Thief: Bitch, it's my scarf!
Thief's Date: It is not. You weren't wearing a scarf when we got here tonight.
Ruby: I'll take my scarf now. (Thief hands over scarf in dismay.)
Thank goodness for a daring woman and observant man! And, congrats to Lily & Josh!
