Prospect Party

Posted in Georgia History, Trifecta, Undogegorized by chamblee54 on July 22, 2013








When PG found the party, the first thing he noticed was the food. There were hollowed out watermelons, filled with chunks of fruit. The obligatory spinach dip was there, as were pigs in blankets, and chips and dip. PG had already eaten dinner, but that seldom stops him.

The music was too loud for conversation outside. PG went inside and saw his friend Uzi. They discussed pictures of horses and non-synchronistic coincidence. Then some anonymous person stepped up to discuss the new shoe for lesbians, the Dyke-EE.

PG stepped outside again. The music made his glasses rattle in their frames. He went back inside and saw the former Miss Tall International®. She had sponsored a movie night the evening before and the movie had been a beautiful romance. PG forgot the title of the movie, probably because he didn’t go.

Onetime camping friend Pro-A, who liked to talk, appeared. PG was getting reckless by this time, and a talking person, no matter how enthusiastic, is preferable to “Play that funky music white boy” at migraine level. “Have you read any good books lately, Pro-A?” As fate would have it, Pro-A had just finished a tome about Catherine the Great, a Russian Czarina, that PG was blissfully ignorant about.

At this point, PG went into the kitchen to refill his cup with Mountain Dew. He came upon a conversation about Indian Food, vegetarianism, flatulence, and Bean-o. PG agrees with the concept of Bean-o, but wonders what people will do for after dinner amusement. Meanwhile, the music outside was turned down a notch, after houseplants complained about the noise.

This article did not charm the hostess. After dubious apology, PG was allowed to live. This is a repost, edited for the Trifecta writing contest. Pictures are from The Library of Congress.

    Block parties are fun. It’s one of the few places where squares are cool.

    Do houseplants often complain about the noise?

    Finally! Someone else who realizes houseplants do not enjoy loud music! We must take this message to the rest of the world.

    Ha! This is a fun response to the prompt. Damn houseplants. Thanks for linking up. Remember to come back and vote at the end.

    I love the way you’ve captured the utter randomness of party conversations. I felt like I was there!
