It's TMI Thursday my friends. For more stories that will entertain and disgust you at the same time go to LiLu’s place for this week's full list. And now, on to the fun!
If possible, this falls into the “cute” TMI category.
A couple years back my friends and I decided we needed a better way to get to the Jimmy Buffett concert. As much fun as it was driving out to whatever venue he was playing at, it generally lost its luster as we sat, and sat…and sat in lines reaching into the next state waiting to exit the parking lot.
So we hit upon a plan. There were enough of us now, and we all had sufficiently well-enough paying jobs (some more than others) that we decided now was the time to rent a bus to take us to Margaritaville. Sweetening the pot, one of our friends, The Doc, offered to pay for half the price of the rental. His logic being it was worth the grand or so he kicked in (about what he makes in four hours in the ER on a Friday night) to see all his friends have a good time.
Who are we to argue?
A joke: What’s the difference between Deadheads and Parrotheads? Parrotheads have 401ks.
Anyway, during the past four years the plan has been a roaring success. No fuss, no muss, no hassle getting to-and-from the show and, best of all, no lines for the bathroom.
The last part cannot be overstated. For the boys it’s not too much of an issue, but I’m thinking since Doc got married he may have a better idea of how the world works from the next porta-shitter over. At least his world, that is.
At one point during the tail-gate, far enough into the beer and tequila I felt the need to relieve myself; I headed inside to the head.
The “Occupied” sign was up in the latch so I enjoyed the AC while I waited.
Finally, “Occupied” flipped to “Vacant” and the door opened to reveal not one, but two smiling people (boy and girl, just to clarify).
Two smiling people still in the process of adjusting their leis, grass skirts, zippers and bikini top.
Two smiling people I’d never, ever before, in my entire life, seen.
I had to applaud them and their audacity as they left our rented bus.
