Spent most of Sunday recovering from my kid brother’s bachelor party. The 18 year gap between us was never the more evident than during that night. The itinerary included the renting of a limousine which took us into Toronto from Port Perry. Port Perry is a small town about 45 minute drive to TO. 10 of us, including our Dad piled in and off we went. The normally quick drive turned into almost a two hour trek as there were constant requests for pit stops and smoking breaks. Being one of the few nonsmokers this was about the only annoyance that got to me over the night – thank God no smoking was allowed in the limo!
Anyhow, we hit a couple of bars on the Esplanade and so forth and had a great time. Then when we were ready to leave the phone number for the limo was incorrect. The driver wrote down the wrong number for his cell phone!!?!??!?!?! Unbelievable. Tired of waiting I hoofed it back to where the driver had dropped us off. It was with great relief that I found him there, not knowing if he was going to move to park the car elsewhere. We drove to where everyone was still milling and loaded up.
By the time we got back it was 04:00 am. I crashed at my brother’s for a couple of hours and then headed home. The rest of Sunday was spent trying to recuperate and reclaim lost sleep.
A very unproductive weekend.
