Tagged: Most Embarrassing Night Involving a Toilet

So, I got this message from my buddy Sandy over at TheSandyTongue. A challenge. One that, if asked by anyone else, I probably wouldn’t do… LOL. But his posts keep me in stitches. Even the ones I don’t agree with. I try really HARD not to read his posts at work, because I laugh so loud they KNOW I’m not working! So here goes…

Hello dear, I nominated you, enjoy:http://thesandytongue.wordpress.com/2012/04/27/tmi-most-embarrasing-night-involving-a-toilet/

In the fall of 1983 I was a 19 year old mother of 2 and recently separated from husband Number 1, due to finding him screwing a 16 year old in our bed, while my 2 year old was playing in the living room and I was grocery shopping… this happened at 5 weeks post-partum.

Needless to say, I was suffering from raging postnatal depression AND situational depression.

Said ex-husband (may he rest in peace… he died from the affects of alcoholism at the young age of 44) had 2 best friends, Rick and Tom. And they decided we were going out for a night on the town. The “happening place” in good ole Stuart, Florida was The Stage East. **Please note, when I was 19, back in 1983, you could still legally drink alcohol at that age, it changed the following July 1, and my little sister (just 19 months younger than me) had to wait to 21 (not that she did… lol).

Anyhoo… I have not much recollection of that night except I had 3 rum and cokes, 2 Long Island ice teas and 2 pina coladas. We then went to an “after party” at Rick’s house. Where I apparently threw up on every surface of his bathroom, except the ceiling. Although, according to Rick, I almost hit the ceiling with it 🙂 I then passed out, hit my head on the bathtub and woke up in the hospital.

Not a proud moment, to be sure. I have never, ever been drunk since then. I have actually never, ever had more than 2 drinks in one 24 hour setting. I’m the designated driver. I would say that I’ve probably had 3 drinks this year, so far, and the last one was on the plane coming back to China where I dumped 1/2 of one of those little airplane sized Bacardi bottles into a diet coke… the other 1/2 is still in my cupboard… that was February 9th.

I wasn’t invited back out to party with that group. Rick said it took 3 of them 2 hours to clean the bathroom from the vomit and blood… more embarrassing that you can imagine.

And that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!


It gets better every year!

I am home for 2 weeks to visit my family and to celebrate Martin County High School’s Class of 1981 30th reunion. What a blast we’ve had. Our motto through high school was “beer, sex, tequila and rum we’re the Class of 81″… We continue to live by that credo… LOL We have so much fun when we’re all together!

The reunion committee and a few others, including my mom, got together on Thursday evening to do last minute planning in Jensen Beach. Jammin’ Jensen is held every Thursday night and brings vendors and locals together. Here’s a pic from that night… Cindy, Leslie and Denise.

Friday night was the pub crawl… we started at Sailor’s Return, then walked under the bridge to Pelican Cafe then crawled to Mulligan’s… it was a huge success!!!

This is me, Debbie and Denise…

Saturday night was our dinner night at The Dolphin Bar & Shrimp House. We had a great time! You can see more pics of this fun night at the site that our amazing photographer, Aleisha Garcia, created here.

We even had some crazy planking going on!

Sunday was our traditional picnic day, but we had it at Indian Riverside Park instead of Stuart Beach. Thank goodness we had the picnic in the morning, because by 1 pm, the thunderbusters were rolling in!

Two of my favorite people in the world! Denise and Julia!

Me and Lisa Pantzer… Lisa and I grew up in the same neighborhood.

I think a good time was had by all!

One of the things that I notice as we get older and approach (gasp!) 50, is that we are getting so much cooler. So much more relaxed and comfortable with ourselves… who we are, what we do, our pasts and our futures. I know that I enjoy myself and all my former classmates more and more each reunion. Why is that? Is it just us growing up? Maturing?

Thanks again Class of 81 for a great weekend! I look forward to planning the cruise for our 50th birthdays in 2013!
