Sometimes we all need to lighten up a bit, right?
Made this one for Brittany7, who has contributed to quite a few of our DIY Challenges, and now had a folder in the Trading Area of the Haven. One of her first captions was made for me, so I had to reciprocate, which I definitely don't mind doing. Its always a good thing to have new blood posting.
Its funny now that it seems like guys aren't allowed to cut loose anymore, but that women are now taking up the mantle of having some wild crazy fun under the guise of blowing off steam. It doesn't seem like its evened up, but swung more towards the fairer sex. Perhaps the public believes that women can do less damage perhaps, or at least keep themselves under a bit more control. As someone that used to bounce now and again, let me tell you, they are just as ornery as men, and just as likely to go for a sucker punch or some other less than noble sneak attack!
Anyway, that was the vibe I was going for and making a statement. Woman's night out is ritualistic with the preparation of what to wear, where to go, etc ... physical, with the dancing, and a chance to hook up emotionally with their friends, with a sense of camaraderie. When I head out with guy friends, there isn't usually a whole lot of sharing .. its mostly, "C'mon ref! Make the call!" There might be some bonding, but its over the football team, or the hockey team, or something more superficial. At the end of the night, but guys and girls can be drained, but who has gotten more out of it? I'm betting its the girls every time!
So, if your woman is out tonight .. a Saturday night .. dancing with friends and having a few brews or other sort of imbibing, you probably shouldn't ask how her night went. You might not really want to know, but you CAN benefit from her "Roaring with the Betties!" cuz she's probably going to be raring to go and you are the one with a target on your back! Or perhaps you are in some sort of chastity, and at the very least, you should have a tasty snack the next morning?
Ah, I don't have much love for Jummy Buffet, but a karaoke bar I used to hang at during the 90's would always play this song at the end of the night, you know right before the "You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here!" spiel. It was time for sealing the deal with a honey, or at least organizing a crew to head out to Denny's for something to clog the old arteries and sober yourself up. Hey, its better than "Closing Time" by Semisonic!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: What do you think is the best song for closing down the bar? I know there are quite a few Sinatra songs that work, along with Van Halen's "Happy Trails" What songs were played at the end of the night at your favorite watering hole?
