being southerners, we are used to mopping our brows at 11:30pm though. we just ignore the heat and try to enjoy our conversations, the periodic lulls filled with the songs of cicadas. there were close to forty people wandering around the backyard and everyone had a good time.
our small group departed around one and decided to grab another round at the usual spot. by this time it was a little after two, so mark and i dropped our friends off and went to athens restaurant. the food isn't great, but many late nights end there because we like to go watch the drunks. last night didn't disappoint as a bachelorette party staggered into the corner booth just as my pancakes arrived. they were, naturally, very obnoxious girls slurring into cell phones and treating the waitress rudely. the one quiet girl in the group was concentrating very hard, harnessing all of her mental powers in an attempt to eat the candy necklace she was wearing. instead of taking it off to more easily enjoy the candy goodness, she would contort her jaw into strange and funny positions, a skill she no doubt picked up at frat parties of yore. they unknowingly provided the entertainment during our meal and, for that, i salute them.
