Drinks and Laughter 15/30

Drinks and laughter were two essentials to a successful party, and more of one, usually means an increase in the other, Althea knew from past experience. So she knew it was a mistake to have daiquiris at Naomi's christening, but Herbert insisted that his family would be expecting some sort of libation that didn't just sit there in the glass providing no pop and sizzle for the party. She tried to water the drinks, but Herbert caught her and put Uncle Charles in charge of the bar. "That's done it," Althea thought. The last time Charles poured, Althea woke up to ten extra full-grown ostriches sleeping it off in her nest.

I remember parties of that sort in my misspent youth!

Hah! Don't we all! Our misspent youth is what makes us the interesting people we are today!

Anna M. Branner said...

So can it still be referred to as "misspent"? ;)

(And that was my deleted comment because I can't spell apparently.)
