You'll Never Guess

You will never, ever, ever in a million years guess what I did tonight.

Time for a little back story. About a week ago it was my friend Kirk's birthday. He and some of his MALE friends happened upon a van from a radio station. They asked the radio guys what they were doing, and the radio guys said they were raffling off tickets for the Chippendales. Kirk and company decided to enter the raffle just to be funny. A few hours later, Kirk's phone rang. He won the tickets.

Flash forward to tonight. I step away from my phone for a few minutes, and when I return I have 3 missed calls and a text from Kirk asking, "What're you doing now?" I call back, and my friend Katie asks me in desperation to go see the Chippendales with her. I had completely forgotten about those tickets. She begged me. She wanted to go so badly, and no one else she called would go with her. It was a funny idea, but I didn't think I would enjoy that sort of thing, so I said no. She begged me some more, but I still said no. After I hung up, though, I started to feel bad. If I didn't go with her, she wouldn't get to go at all. I was the one thing standing in between this girl and her night of crazy hilarity. And it wouldn't cost me anything. So I caved. She freaked out and said, "I'MMA BUY YOU DRINK!"

So yeah. We went. We didn't really know what we were going to see. It was awkward and horrible but also kind of hilarious. It was a giant casino ballroom filled to bursting with drunk women who all seemed to enjoy watching muscley men strip off tacky costumes in a raunchy way. Katie and I were pretty uncomfortable at first, but after a while our terrific senses of humor kicked in. It really was hilarious, especially considering that 98% of the people there were truly getting their kicks while Katie and I were laughing at everything. Weirdest part? We actually spotted two men in the crowd, both of whom seemed to be there with their wives/girlfriends. Sounds like a fantastic date idea.

OH! And one of the Chippendales was named Corey Matthews. Hahahaha. Katie said, "I guess that boy really met the world!" Get it? Yeah.

So now I can say that I've been to a Chippendale's show. It was only a favor for a friend, and I didn't even enjoy it properly, but I went. We bought Kirk a Chippendale's tank top. I can't wait to give it to him. I think his reaction will be well worth the collective $20 we spent on it.

I don't feel like typing anymore tonight. I swear I will talk soon about what my parents did in New York. I won't forget. Tonight's story just trumped it all.

  1. Haha, that's an awesome story. I bet you would have gone wild though if there was a nerd costumed guy :-p

    When you mentioned the guys there with their wives, it reminded me of the How I Met Your Mother where Lily & Robin go with Marshall and Barney to a strip club (don't know if you even watch that show, but that episode is on if you want to see what I'm talking about)
