Old School High School Rager

Last weekend my parents went out of town, so I thought it would be in my best interest to throw a high school style rager.

It's really kind of weird when you get all excited about throwing a house party when you are 23 years old, but this is what happens to you when you live in your parent's basement.

The funny thing is my first reaction when I decided to have a party was to hide glass flower vases and other things that could get broken, and block off certain portions of my house with chairs. My second reaction was, "wait, we're all adults now and there is no need to do things like that." My third reaction was me remembering that when we get about ten beers deep we still are essentially a bunch of animals.

It's funny when you're talking to people at work and you ask them what they did over the weekend and you get answers back like, "me and my wife went to see a movie at the AMC," or, "we went over to a friend's apartment and played bridge," and when they ask you what you did you say, "my parents were out of town so me and some buddies rocked the shit out of their house."

the dumbest thing I have ever seen

I came into my kitchen at around 1:30am to find a group of people around my table playing an intense game of catch phrase. While catch phrase is one of the greatest party games ever, this was one of the most ridiculous variations of the game I have ever witnessed. Someone had pulled out a jar of pickles out of my fridge, ate the last pickle and then made the jar of pickle juice part of the game. Whenever someone lost, you were forced to take a big swig of pickle juice. At first I was like, "what the fuck are you guys doing?" and the next thing I know I had lost and found my myself swigging from the jar.

wow, we are a bunch of idiots.
