In out last episode, Saturday boat chores demanded attention, while migraines interfered with peace afloat and Boat Dog went hunting for shade. . . .
Now, as we return to our story, we discover two phenomena:
Teenagers got nothing on boat people when it comes to drinking, playing music loudly (and late), and eating pulled pork after midnight; and
Old vermin walk at night.
These two bullet points really start and end the weekend’s true story. And saying more would likely violate Party Thrower-Party Goer Privilege. So I’ll say goodnight.
But I will leave you with one of those old-school kids’ word-matching games. Simply match the words in the left column with the words in the right column with which they have some sort of natural relationship:
Pirate garb Tequila shots
Guitar music After midnight
Boat christening Belly dancing
Country lyrics Champagne
Hot tub Gypsy Kings music
(no, never mind;
the marina hot tub
is a little scary)
Greek philosophy India Pale Ale
Doggie friends Bachata music
Fish tales Margaritaville
New friends Raccoons
(Don’t ask Boat Dog for help. Boat dogs tell no secrets.)
