Life's A Pool, Jump In

Tuesday, May 27, 2014


Here's the thing about jumping in a pool at a wedding reception, it always sounds like a good idea in theory. But after you do it, it's usually like okay now what?  

Because if you're dumb enough to think it's a good idea to jump in a pool fully clothed at a wedding reception, chances are you're dumb enough to not think about what happens right after you jump in said pool. You're soaking wet, standing at the door looking at all of the happy guests inside, wondering what your next move is. See it's that "next move" no one ever really thinks about.


Naturally we just went back inside like nothing had happened.


Except for the fact we were dragging pools of water with us everywhere we went and we now looked like a couple of wet dogs. A "wet yorkie" is actually what my friend Roy said exactly. And we all know being called a wet yorkie is like the highest compliment ever.

I know some of you are probably thinking how pissed you'd be if you were the bride right about now. Well that's the thing you have to understand about this specific wedding party. They like to party. This was one of those weddings that you just knew was going to be like a time travel back to college. And it did not disappoint. At every wedding reception there's alway that "one guy" who people expect to get a little out of hand by the end of the night, well this reception was full of those "one guys." Thus the reason I thought it was okay to jump in the pool and go from this,


to ringing my hair out on the dance floor in just a few hours.


Did I mention my parents were at the reception, as well? They were really proud.


I've said it before and I'll say it again. I just really love weddings. So congrats again to Colin and Kari, thanks for inviting me, you guys throw a great party.


And PS I'm sorry I wrote "Go Norfolk Panthers -Tay #22" in your guest book. But just because you invited me to your wedding doesn't mean I'm going to forget that bullshit five second call in 2003. We all know the Norfolk Panthers are way better than the Fremont Tigers.

  2. You are too funny! Looks like you had an amazing time! I've never been to a wedding with a pool available to jump into, though I'm confident that if there ever is one, it would be a common occurrence with my college friends.

  14. haha. I soooo appreciate that you're the type of person that would jump into a pool at the wedding. Actually jumping in is so much better than thinking about jumping in and not doing it.

  21. Inflatable jump houses, obstacles, courses, amusements, and exercises are a raving success with sorts of each age, and more than maybe a couple grown-ups are certain to join in the fun too.
