We were at a tailgate party recently - our host Bob. W was showing of his skills as a chef on his new Fire Magic Echelon E660s Cabinet Gas Grill when we got into one of those remember when discussions. It was really started by some kids coming past going to the game and one was wearing the School Mascot Costume, It was a warm evening and I wore a College Mascot Costume once – never again I swear I lost about 5 pounds as it was so hot.
We were going to spend the evening star gazing as Jim H had invested in a Meade 8 inch Telescope apparently the LS 8" ACF (f/10) Advanced Coma-Free with UHT was the best thing ever and you could see induvidual rocks on the moon. But the mascot costume got us going on various costumes we had worn at various times – I still remember my Batman Dark Knight - Batman Grand Heritage Collection Costume but Bob said he thought the Harry Potter Gryffindor Costume that his son wore on his last Birthday was the best he had seen. Pete D started going on about the Roman Toga he used to wear made from a sheet and we teased him about his home made spartan costume, it wasn't anything like the 300 Spartans - Collector's Edition Adult Costume he could afford now.
That got us talking about old girl friends and how they used to go wild for white gogo boots and always wanted to dance on tables espcially when the power went out until some one could get the Winco RP55 20 HP Mobile Diesel Power Generator System started. This lead to a comment on Sue XX who used to go around in a Tea Party Alice Deluxe Adult Costume that could best be described as "Tres Chic" as it did lead to her having to get a Orbit Baby Toddler Car Seat. Giver how cute she looked in it it was harly surprising.
At that stage the heavens opened and all thoughts of attending the game and the tailgate paties disapeared and we went over the road and invaded Pete's place and tried out his home theater with two Bass Diplomat Row of Five Home Theater Chairs That was definitely a better way of spending the evening.
