Tonight we threw a surprise party for Lauren's mom.
We hid in a steak house filled with balloons.
All her friends were there.
And all her daughters, too.
Including a daughter who flew in from Mississippi.
Even my mom showed up!
We yelled it.
It blew her mind!
Lauren's folks have good friends and family.
They like to get silly and make sloppy, slippy speeches from the heart.
It was a wonderful tribute to a wonderful woman.
The spirit (and spirits) of the evening overtook me.
While hugging a family friend goodbye, I inadvertently squeezed her ass.
I apologized profusely.
She dismissed me with a hand.
"It was the best part of the night," she said.
