Sundays in My Neck of the Woods


Yes, yesterday was my birthday. . .I really had planned to have a restaurant review ready, as we planned to go out to eat with family and friends to celebrate.

Okay, so the celebrating may have gotten a little bit out of hand.  It started with the Godiva Chocolates Mr. Eva gave me as a gift...

But, Godiva chocolate leads to other evils, like Mountain Dew. I haven't had Mountain Dew in years. . .love that stuff! I discovered some time ago that I just can't handle caffeine. . .

It was ineveitable that caffeine would lead to another of my favorites--vodka gimlets--once we arrived at the restaurant, and well, give me a few of those, and I'm apt to throw caution to the wind.

Once caution was thrown, it was bound to be followed by the gauntlet, the inevitable "Dare ya!" and all hell breaks loose. Things get a little fuzzy here..or maybe it's foggy..weather report did say foggy on the coast last night....

The band is playing, "Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets. . .."  Suddenly, the table is a stage, various and assorted garments are being shed, midst chants from the crowd..something like: "Take it off, Baby, take it all off!."   (Things get much fuzzier from here!)


Police sirens in the distance, then doors crashing open, whistles blowing, bodies jostling against each other in a rush for the exits.

Some burly officer with Arnold Schwarzenegger's muscles and Patrick Dempsey's face is hoisting the fighting, kicking, pastie and G-string-clad crazy person that is me into the "paddy wagon". . . .


Well, it could have happened! I'm just sayin.'

I know I got as far as the Mountain Dew and Godiva Chocolate part, anyway!

Another uneventful birthday bites the dust!


(You guys are SO gullible!!)

(A few of you may have recognized part of this post from a couple of years ago; I couldn't resist publishing it again!)

Sundays in My Neck of the Woods will resume next week!

Well! It could have been you...I have been known to cross a table or two on the way to the dance floor. Sadly, I can no longer step that high.

The Mountain Dew and Chocolate sounds like a fun time to me.
