Fun, frivolity and other F-words

I have been writing this blog for about 2.5 years. I have been a patron at After Dark for 6 months to a year more than that. I write silliness, frivolity, the occasional complete and utter bullsh*t that I make up in my twisted little mind and every once in a while something that is serious or touching. The silliness and frivolity are what make me happiest and dammit, I want some happiness right now!

I am not just a total goofball who comes up with this stuff out of no where. No! I am a partial goofball that is inspired by her environment. The level of musical awesome that can be witnessed at After Dark is, no doubt, mind boggling. The level of insanity that takes place at After Dark, aside from the music is the kind of stuff that makes me laugh till I have tears in my eyes and by belly hurts. I have seen things, read things, hell, done things at After Dark that cannot be (and never should be) unseen, unread or undone!

Let’s play a little game! Ever heard of 2 Truths and a Lie? If you have not the name pretty much lays it out there. Three statements are given. Two of them are true and one is a lie. Easy peasy! Here we go!

1. I have overheard in local chat at After Dark:

  1. “lol Brady it’s a tip jar not a thong”
  2. “Giraffes and rats can last longer without water than camels.”
  3. ” i crash like a nearsighted grandpa on ambien”

2. I have experienced the following griefing at After Dark:

  1. Flying hamburgers
  2. The floor constantly moving sideways and taking the people in the club with it
  3. An audio takeover where the live music was replaced with Kenny G

3. I have witnessed at After Dark:

  1. A musician performing a heartfelt tribute to their recently deceased goldfish
  2. A musician performing as Oscar the Grouch
  3. A musician streaking during another musician’s set

4. I have also witnessed at After Dark:

  1. A patron table dancing in the back of the club for two gentlemen
  2. A patron leading a marching band through the club
  3. A patron just plain forgetting to wear pants

5. As if those were not enough, I have additionally witnessed at After Dark:

  1. A man trying on women’s hair at the request of the owner
  2. Patrons dressed as a piñata, a bunny, Santa, a skeleton and an angel
  3. Meegan showing zero skin from the neck down

6. Things I have done at After Dark

  1. Traded “favors” for half a ham sandwich
  2. Twerked while dressed as a nun
  3. Danced with an inflatable doll while dressed as a canned adult beverage

And a bonus question!!!!!

7 Things I have learned at After Dark

  1. True love is fried chicken and a blow job.
  2. Playing the udu is not as dirty as it sounds
  3. Quantum physics

So…..how do you think you did? Were the lies easy to pick out, or did you struggle with which to choose as well as with putting your brain around half of the statements you just read? I will give you the answers in a moment, but first I think we need to take the time to reflect on how amazing it is that most of the statements above are true! Seriously, there is a lot of truth up there and it is wonderful insanity!

The lies are as follows:

  1. “Giraffes and rats can last longer without water than camels.”
  2. An audio takeover where the live music was replaced with Kenny G
  3. A musician performing a heartfelt tribute to their recently deceased goldfish
  4. A patron leading a marching band through the club
  5. Meegan showing zero skin from the neck down
  6. Traded “favors” for half a ham sandwich
  7. Quantum physics

If you got 1-3 of the lies right then you have either never been to After Dark or you need to start paying attention to your surroundings. If you got 4-6 of the lies right then you aren’t half bad and probably somewhat well liked by certain people. If you got 7 of the lies right then you are the ultimate, mega-awesome, good time fun person! What did you win? NOTHING! Though you get the satisfaction of knowing that you know things and you can spot a lie from across the grid!
