It Takes... A Thief... šŸ˜®šŸ¤”

They, were a couple of software engineers from Ireland, visiting our company for the week. A buddy (Dave) and I, decided to be good hosts. We'd make sure they saw the sights of the city and get a feel for the vibe of our town. What better place to start, then at one of the many drinking establishments we knew? Or so we thought.

There was a live band playing on stage, as the four of us piled around an empty table. "There's a two drink minimum," the waitress shouted, above the din of the music. One of the Irish lads, Brody, replied...

"Well... as long as there's no maximum, we'll be fine."

Several hours and many 'Jameson' shots later, the bar man sternly came up to us. "Gentlemen we're going to have to ask you to leave. You're too DRUNK."

Connor (the other Irish lad) spoke up. "Isn't that the point of a bar? To serve your until they get drunk? Then... he continued his indignant lecture ; "Ya know... I've never been thrown out by a restaurant... for being too FULL... for fucks sake!"

And... before we knew it, we were all standing outside on the sidewalk, collecting our thoughts. Brody had lost his hotel room key. Connor couldn't find his wallet. And me? Well... I was the designated driver. Although I'd left my car at home.

They all wanted to go to a strip club. I didn't. And that's, how my Monday night went. The 'old man' in the crew, had had enough. The younger men did well and showed up at the morning meeting, bright eyed and bushy tailed... sort of.

"Ahh... to be young and full of boundless energy," I thought. Seems that 'time', had placed a quota on my stamina. When did that 'thief', ever catch up to me? I never even saw him coming. I thought... I was immune to his stealth. Most of us do. šŸ¤”

Time āŒš does have a way of bending things, doesn't it? Or perhaps, I have finally matured? šŸ˜¶ Or worse... I'm just getting old.

Nah... 'Time', will have to run faster to catch up to me. šŸ˜Š At least for now!

Cheers my coffee mate..My thoughts that you will survive another round, are with you.....lol.

You can never have enough JOY in your life..xoxo

Great post about how our perspective changes as we 'mature'. What is important to us, and often, how we define how we want to have 'fun' does too. This tale of a 'boys night out' is timely too since it's 'International Men's Day'. Wonder if the results will be different on your next excursion?

Sounds like a great evening was had by all and sometimes its wise to know when you have had your limit. I think you were a great host to the two visiting software engineers. Your always such a great host, and I do love it when you share parts of your life with us. As I hope you will continue to enjoy the rest of your evening..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

Obviously you didn't see Time sneak up because you were distracted by Mother Nature.

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation bangs on the door forever!

THAT... is a very responsible way of rationalizing the whole ; 'going out' thing.
I find... there's no need to drink to excess, in order to have fun. I've had great times, just patrolling moonlight beaches and paths (or streets), with an interesting companion by my side.
You know what I mean.

I was trucking along just fine until I got blond sided in March and in one swoop I suddenly was "old". Everything is rebelling and this cold weather is the icing with more to come. Shit there are still frozen leaves in the front lawn and they are cleaning the gutters today- stuff I used to do on my own. Time for the high dose flu shot
