A Grown-Up Bedtime Story (Featuring the Cat in the Hat)

The sun was so bright
The weather was hot
They became rather thirsty
Those two, Stump and Scott.

They finished a bucket
Of  mixed drinks with rum
Then proceeded outside
To lay in the sun.

They walked to the pool
Two cases in hand.
Just for two "things"
To have fun in the sand.

While at the pool
A reunion they crashed
They ate stranger's chicken
And  potatoes, just mashed.

To the pool bar they went
And ordered more beer
And drank those all down
As they walked to the pier.

They finished their drinks
Then went the loo
Stump and Scott are now known
As Drunk 1 and Drunk 2.

I looked over at Bear
And asked, "What will we do?
I don't want to babysit
Drunk 1 and Drunk 2."

We went out for dinner
With Drunk 2 and Drunk 1.
I said, "No alcohol"
They said, "You're no fun!"

But for dinner they behaved
And drank sweetened tea.
And acted much different
Than when drunk at the sea.


  1. BRA-VA!!!!!

    I give you TEN gold stars and a standing ovation for this post, girl!

    You are soooooooooooooooo clever!

    Woot! Woot! Woot!

    And it's funny, because even at 55 years old, I STILL read Cat In The Hat books while I'm in Barnes & Noble!

    I LOVE Dr. Seuss!

    Great photos too!

    Have fun and wonderful weekend, my friend!


  2. Hey Ron!

    I'm glad I did at least get a good blog post out of the fiasco! God, those two were awful to put up with. Of course, they disagree. They didn't have to put up with themselves!

    They started drinking on one of those bucket mixes you get from the grocery store and add a fifth of rum. They downed all of it! Then one took a case of Bud Light, the other took a case of Coors Light. It was all gone when they came back to the room.

    There was really a family reunion going on. Those two crashed the reunion and honest to goodness ate their food! They may have been able to pass for relatives... IF the family had been white.

    Hope you have a marvelous weekend!
