A Dare Being DoneI am generally a square kinda guy. I do not drink or smoke or do drugs. I don’t go to bars very often. I don’t sleep around. If I’m up ’til dawn, it’s usually because I’ve been playing Halo 2 on the Xbox or talking religion with people I’ve known since junior high.

But if you visit Daren’s blog (yes, he’s been busy today, as every day), you’ll get an interesting snippet of the birthday party I was at this Saturday. Yes, I was at that party. And I was not the one scrunched in the corner of the sofa, smiling shyly and nursing my fifteenth glass of water. It turns out I was the guy who went party hopping with people I’d just met, and suggested the Truth or Dare game that got someone to sit on my lap for an enticing moment while I guzzled my twenty-first glass of water.

There was a lot going on that night, much of it amusing, most of it unrequited, and all of it refreshingly out of the norm for me. When I finally got home after the party, took a semi-drunken phone call at 5:30am, then slid into bed, it was light outside. Unlike the usual nights where I sleep fitfully and rise several times to grumpily go to the bathroom, I did not open my eyes until 5:00pm the next day (or, I guess technically, that same day).

And so you see, so much for Sunday.

To those who might find my participation in such a scandalous night of debauchery surprising, I can assure you there was no scandal (almost) and no debauchery (nearly none) involved. It was simply a night that went long and loud. And besides, if this was the way my life was lived normally, I wouldn’t have appreciated Saturday as much as I did.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an episode of Hidden Frontier to watch on my video iPod.

Steve, you are an amazing man. But….whose pants are on the floor…and why….

Well, in the land of Truth or Dare, you never know whose pants will end up on the floor! (I can, for the sake of assurances, assure you they are not mine. Not then, anyway.)

Oh, my, well…you are a mass of contradictions….just to help me get a clue…if you were a “Golden Girl” (personality-wise) – who would you be???

Hmmm… I’d be Frida. Was she a Golden Girl? No, I’m not sure if I’m any of the Golden Girls. I always saw myself more of a Gopher. You know, The Love Boat Gopher? Yeah, that was me. Maybe even still is!
