my late night purchase

We attended the kids' school auction gala a couple of weeks ago. We didn't go crazy at the auction part of the gala. Okay, DH purchased 2 parties, the Cinco De Mayo party and the Man Party. I'm obviously not attending the Man Party. I'm not sure what the Man Party is but the description is "if you have to ask what the Man Party is, then it probably isn't the party for you." I imagine there will be a bus, a few bar stops, too many drinks & maybe alcohol induced illness involved. I'm glad I'm not attending. We've done the Cinco De Mayo party for a couple of years and I wanted to try a new one, so I purchased the Inwood Tavern party. A party with 12 couples, a band & drinks on the back patio at the World Famous Inwood Tavern sounds like good fun to me.

I never really went through the rest of the silent auction stuff and realized with a minute to go that it was closing. I was a little disappointed because I wanted to buy a tree.

A few drinks and a few hours later, I was still disappointed. I tracked down the guy in charge of the auction and told him I had to have a tree. Now I do!
