Weekend BBQ Fun
Hooray for the long weekend! Due to a Canadian Civic holiday, I was able to enjoy much lazing about and Stooge-like shenanigans while attending numerous BBQ's.
Suz and I were invited to a super-wicked BBQ at Ton-Ton's place. You may remember Ton-Ton from such posts as Moving a Mustang from a few days ago.
We were put to work as soon as we arrived. There were drinks to be drunk and chairs to be sat in. All of this work needed to be completed as slowly as possible, so we were ideal candidates. Unfortunately I drank my massive Gin & Tonic too quickly and was forced to drink another as punishment. This continued throughout the evening.
There was some wild swimming-pool action going on while Chef Ton-Ton prepared our tasty steaks. Imagine eating a 3-inch thick steak instead of working. C'mon! Imagine it! Again I say, hooray for the long weekend!
Distractions a-plenty endangered the deliciousness of our meaty dinners. Sometimes fire is good, but only when it's under control. With a bunch of easily-distracted men gathered around the BBQ, it's no wonder the plume of smoke rose 200 feet in the air. Reacting slowly, as men often do, we smartly avoided a 9-1-1 call by lifting the lid of the BBQ. Surprisingly, only one sausage got burned. Everything else turned out perfectly.
Soon the dinner bell rang. Candles were lit. Drinks were poured. Orders were given for everyone to evacuate the pool. In the bushes, blood-thirsty female mosquitoes prepared for their attack.
Ton-Ton brought the platter of meat around and everyone filled their plates with salads and bruschetta. As the sun began to set and the glow of the lightposts scared away late afternoon shadows, seven of us assembled under the gazebo for an awesome dinner.
Hooray for long weekends! Sure beats battling horrific traffic just to hang around some cottage somewhere.
