Good Times in Cincy

Well here it goes.....Friday night was probably the most fun I have had in such a long time, considering everything that has happened in the past few months. I had intended on not going but after some coaxing by Hollie, we piled in the car and off we went to Dave and Busters. First we stopped at a hotel and Hollie and Graham paid for the room. We proceeded to have a few drinks before we caught a cab from the hotel to D&B. Now something that everyone knows but I always seem to forget, is that you are suppose to eat more than once if you plan on going out for a few drinks with your friends. I had a big lunch on Friday and just could not force myself to eat. So needless to say after the few drinks in the hotel, I still felt fine. I had a beer at Dave and Busters and decided that the Flight Simulator looked like a good idea. Now picture this.......sitting in a big cage that is on a swivel and can go in any direction, including upside down, all while starring at a 3 televisions, one in front and 1 on each side of that. Cool game right?? Not if all you have drank is alcohol and no food!! I got out of that and immediately decided it was time to stop. Sometimes things just aren't up to you though. Graham had run across this bachelorette party and those girls decided to tell a few guys that we were with them. So since the guys were buying shots and I didn't want to spend any money. I took them!! I mean I didn't want to be rude by refusing to take the shots. So after 3 shots, I went and hid by the kiddy games and collected a whole bunch of tickets. I grabbed a bite to eat, and that's all my body needed, the dizziness from the flight simulator, wore off and I needed to find Hollie, Travis and Graham. They weren't hard to find though, Graham and Travis were playing shooting games. You would have thought I fell of the face of the earth, because when Hollie and them saw me, I got tackled with hugs. So a few games later we decided it was time to call it a night. We must be getting old because we were back at the hotel by 12:30. We woke up the next morning and we were off to IHOP. There was a lady making ballon animals for kids and she made Travis and Graham a hat that connected them together.

Now if thats not a funny picture, I am not sure what is....2 grown mean and a balloon hat!!! Needless to say, we had a great time and it was just what I needed to help me finally get passed the bad stuff.
