20 Horses And A Box Of Franzia

October 19th 2013

.

Rise and Shine!…With Wine.

.

Top of the morning.

Top of the morning.

.

Indeed this was an exact reenactment of my appearance on the morning of October 19th, 2013 at approximately 7:25 am.

.

The occasion was this:

.

About a month or two back a my local NYC friend, Bee

.

Face clarification.

Bee’s face.

.

Invited a flock of preppy New Yorkers to join her on a party bus to Far Hills, New Jersey.

“There’s going to be a race” she said.

.

“A horse race.”

.

.

.

.

.

.

With booze.

.

.

.

Everyone said yes.

.

The story gets better.

.

The expectations were as follows:

1. The bus will leave exactly at 9 am

2. That bus will have drinking

3. That race will having driving

4. This event is BYODF (Bring your own damn food)

5. The bus will leave exactly at 4 p.m. And will not wait for anyone.

.

4:01 pm.

4:01 pm.

.

Now normally I’m not a ruler abider

.

Because quite honestly:

.

.

But one does not simply – cancel on Bee “Goldfish Chugger” Dover:

.

Legendary.

Legendary.

.

So alas, at the painful stroke of 8:30 am on a Saturday morning, the lot of us woke the fuck up. And piled on the damn bus with optimal grace:

.

The sacrifices we make to party....

Ready to roll.

.

.

That looked like this:

Everything looks swankier in black and white.

.

Where we pulled on our drinking khakis and leggings. And got the party started with a classy, world-renowned, fresh from September 2013 swig of:

.

.

.

Franzia:

Thirsty?

Feels good to be a post grad.

.

.

Order up.

Breakfast is served.

2 hours and 48 blacked out individuals (and 1 semi-coherent wasian) later

___________________                                            ___________________

We had arrived. 

.

.

And at the precise moment of park, Tucker bound off the bus instantaneously:

Look how instantaneous I am.

Look how instantaneous I am.

.

As the rest of us frOLicked behind him shortly after. Mostly drunk and partially excited to see a fleet of horses, swirling glasses of chardonnay, oversized hats, flowing dresses, some croutons sprinkled on catered-in salads

Until we saw…

.

This:

.

Good god.

So no croutons then…

.

.

.

airborne

Not a glass of chardonnay was found. All croutons were

.

And any abandoned mustaches?

.

Were fucking worn:

Oui Oui

No shave november pre-game.

.

.

Suddenly.

.

A gunshot went off.

.

.

 The ====== horses  ===== were ===== out  ===== of =====  the ===== gate

.

.

.

And no one gave a single fuck.

.

But only because.

.

We were distracted.

.

And going  a little rogue.

These guys.

.

And I noticed it when:

.

In the midst of making new friends:

Can't hang out. Busy.

Can’t hang out. Busy.

.

.

I noticed a something bright from the

corner of my eye.

.

It was a man. Dressed in a yellow shirt. He wore a puka shell….wicker hat.

.

And his name was Hank.

.

Hey Hank.

Hey Hank.

.

And Hank had one request.

 .

To fill up his flask.

.

And that was it:

.

Your wish is apparently our command, Hank.

.

Once Hank was properly remounted on his walker, (flask in hand)… I suddenly noticed an unusual amount of hay

In the sky.

.

And that’s when I saw it.

.

Liam Parker violently chucking mass amounts of hay at innocent children’s faces:

.

He's going to make a great father someday.

He’s going to make a great father someday.

.

.

Without a single ounce of remorse:

No fucks.

No fucks.

Moments after I witnessed Liam face plant a handful of children, his very roommate, Tucker,  was approximately 8 shots of whiskey overboard slow mo-ing a champion fall that looked like this:

.

Man down.

Man down.

.

But not for long.

.

.

Wait where did you get that candy corn.

.

.

Glamour shot.

Glamour shot.

.

Alas, Tucker was sitting up right and simmering down Liam’s violence. And the rest of the day was spent hijacking fireball:

.

Gimme that.

.

.

Taking selfies:

Girls never do this.

.

.

And overreacting to pre-packaged sandwiches #drunkanddesperate

1380376_10151614539136685_455892267_n

An absurd amount of happiness going on here.

.

And at the precise stroke of 3:43 pm that day, Krissy, Charlie and I moseyed >> our way over to our trusty ride home. Eagerly ready to abide by rule #5:

The bus will leave exactly at 4 p.m. And will not wait for anyone.

.

Just a friendly reminder.

Just a friendly reminder.

.

.

So off we went  >>>>

Ready to go

Happily drunk

With cheetos on the mind

When suddenly

________________________________ “I’m sorry ladies. No one can cross this gate” ____________________________

.

.

2 officers were standing at a barricade in their uniformed slacks and freshly polished badges.

.

“What do you mean, officers? We need to leave!”

.

“I’m sorry but we simply cannot let you leave until the horses have crossed this part of the track”

.

“Well…how long will that be?”

.

“20 minutes? Maybe more?”

.

“But we’ve gotta go. Our ride. It’s in the parking lot!”

.

“Tough shit.”

.

Good times.

Good talk.

.

.

So there we were.

.

.

The lone 3 of us

X    X    X

.

Stranded with a pack of horses and a phone call that said

.

“The bus driver said he’s not going to wait. We’re leaving now”

.

And that they did.

.

We kept our cool:

.

And began to brainstorm the various ways to travel back to our overpriced homes in the city.

.

Help me, I'm poor.

Help me, I’m poor.

.

And that’s when we saw it.

.

.

A glowing train station from a fair distance away.

.

Celebration time.

HOLLA.

.

And with a quick dead sprint and an impromptu ticket. We finally boarded the train.

.

Lord have mercy.

Not sober.

.

.

And made some friends.

Jk who is this.

Jk who is this.

.

And it wasn’t until we strolled through our     doors          a not so brief 4 hours later, changed into our makeshift PJs and watched breaking bad until 1 in the goddamn morning, did I realize that

.

This might just be the last time I’d ever attempt to mix animals with booze.

.

.

Unless it involves something like this:

Sign me up.

This is incredible. Sign me up.
