Remember that Sunday that After Dark didn’t have shows? About a week or so ago? I know Meegan claimed it was due to Guerilla Bu!rlesque performing at Indee Teepee. What she failed to mention is that she was also taking the After Dark crew on a summer vacation! The “team building” trip that she took the crew on to Mardi Gras was such a success that she decided we should do it again and what better place than the beach?!
I will not bore you with the details of the trip there. Some motion sickness, lots of “Are we there yet”s, a zillion bathroom stops, and a group singalong of the entire Sound of Music soundtrack, led by Meegan. You know, the typical road trip stuff. The one thing I will mention is that Meegan told us that we would be traveling in a vintage convertible. We were all stoked……until we saw the ride she was talking about. In hindsight, it was roomier and the wind in the hair is the wind in your hair no matter the vehicle, I suppose! So, road trip, blah, blah, blah. Then……..BEACH! Lucky for us the beachfront house that Meegan had booked for the trip did not leave us hanging like the vehicle of choice had! Meegan had some team building activities planned for us, but after the long ride we all just wanted to hit the sand and relax. After the shenanigans that had taken place at Mardi Gras, Meegan felt the need to sit us ladies down and give us a little talking to about how we should behave since we were representitives of After Dark. Dark would have been given the same talking to but he had to go speedo shopping as he had left his banana hammock at home. Not to mention he was the only one of the group who kept his nips covered at the last outing! Turns out that Meegan is so engaging that several other women gathered to hear her words on decorum and behavior. Meegan’s words of wisdom went a long way. We all behaved like perfect examples of humans…..until the liquor came out. I feel the need to mention that we would probably have stayed in our model behavior mode were it not for our fearless leader leading us directly down a path to wild beachy madness! Yes, as per usual, it was ALL Meegan’s fault! (Isn’t it always?!?)
I am going to let the pictures tell most of the story, but I will give you a “cliff-notes” version of the trip. There was a twerking contest. Dark managed to find the smallest piece of fabric with the most print ever to cover his bits. The only team building that took place was the building of a human pyramid and turning Dark into a sand mermaid. We did learn a lot about each other though. We learned that Portia can bong a beer like no one’s business. We learned that LadyGlory is the Frank Lloyd Wright of sand castles. We learned that Dark has….shall we say, interesting taste in swim attire. We learned that after enough tequila, Shanny can sleep anywhere. We learned that Meegan cannot be trusted near the water after 3 vodka tonics. And we learned that, no matter how old I (your blogess bitch) get, I can still not be considered a “responsible adult.”
But again, I will let the pictures tell the story!
I have been told that there are MANY other pictures of us from that trip floating around out there, but what happens at the beach stays at the beach….at least that goes for all of the things we cannot remember!
