So yesterday was our friend Chris's birthday. I didn't really know it was his birthday, actually; I was just told that there was going to be a party.
This party was very much like any college party I've been to (though they really can vary a lot). This was one of the more mild ones with activities from bubble-gum chewing contests to beer pong. In fact, within minutes of my friend Shane showing up, they were having a contest who could chew a whole roll of bubble tape the longest, which quickly became a contest to see who could blow a huge bubble first.
To be honest, that was actually rather uneventful, and the high-light of the contest was mostly the dialogue taking place which you can't really hear in any of the videos I took. But it was definitely an interesting thing to see.
Also, I discovered my friend Lauren's water drinking capabilities...
Although the party was definitely a lot of fun, I have to say that the best part, as usual, was the beer pong they set up in the kitchen. For those who haven't read my previous posts on beer pong, beer pong is a highly competitive sport where combatants, usually on teams of two, toss balls into each others cup, forcing the other people to drink the beer in the cups. The first person to make their opponent run out of cups wins.
Beer pong is also very entertaining to watch because the team members tend to get very competitive and often make fools out of their selves with their macho displays, usually accompanied with drunkenness.
Opponents also often try methods of distracting their opponents without directly interfering with their ability to toss their balls in the cups.
The first game of the night definitely demonstrated this, especially with the guy in the hat and his sexual thrusting. Though I definitely have seen much much worse when it comes to beer bong. Let's see people get that riled up about flip cup!!
The game drug on kind of long, but they usually do unless you have at least one person who is like a beer pong champ.
Afterward, we all went to our "old stomping ground" as Thunder puts it, Filibertos. Not even half of us were eating, but it's always a fun place to hang out.
