>what a night

>So last Saturday night was rather interesting to say the least. Ben had to work on Sunday, which is usually one of our days off together, and we’d have to go to bed early on Saturday so he could get up on time for work. I really didn’t want to do this… and the girls had invited me to go clubbing with them. I wanted to do that and Ben told me to go and have fun.

We had plans to leave a little early cause we had free passes and didn’t want to get passed the free admission time…. but surprise… we didn’t. My friends Dionna and Angela are notorious for being late. Turns out there we eight of us going, which included me, so we took two cars.

Once we got there… Angela was already hammered. We headed to the club (the Vault) and got in fairly quickly. Not many people were there but we made a beeline to the bar. We weren’t leaving for at least three hours so I knew it would be safe to have just one drink (and I did.. I’m a good girl).

After we all got our drinks we stood around just bullshitting. Angela was being goofy like always and she was dancing backwards out onto the empty floor. She didn’t care.. she was that far gone. Jared said he wanted to go to Jake’s, another club around the corner. I couldn’t have agreed more.. it was pretty dead.

So we all headed to Jake’s… Jared ended up paying for half the people to get in and told them if he did they had to stay for a while. Everyone was down for that. Once inside we all headed to the dance floor.

We weren’t there twenty minutes when Dionna and her friend, Rose, decided they wanted to go back to the Vault. Somewhere along the line, we ran into Ben (see a few posts back). Ben offered to buy Angela a drink.. even though she certainly didn’t need another one. Personally I think he was trying to fuck her… but that is just my thought.

Dionna started getting upset with Angela… I broke in between them to cool the situation. I told Dionna I’d take care of her and for them to just go ahead and go back to the other club. I gave Angela a glass of water, made her drink it, and pulled her ass back out on the floor to dance.

Soon Angela decided she needed to go to the bathroom and said she’d be back. Fifteen minutes passed and I was starting to wonder where she was. I asked Jared’s friends and him if they had seen her… which they hadn’t. Jared and I decided that we’d go look for her if she wasn’t back by the end of the song.

Sure enough, she wasn’t so we headed to the bathroom. No Angela. His friends and I looked through the club and went outside. No Angela. Jared and I went back inside… I sent him into the men’s bathroom just in case she was just that drunk. No Angela. We swept the club..again then back outside. No Angela.

We decided to go over to the Vault just in case… left his friends outside Jake’s. Just as we turned the corner.. off by the Vault was Angela bebopping down the side walk. I yelled out to her… asked her what she was doing.. and told her never to do that again… I was sooo worried. I thought something bad had happened. This is where she says she went looking for Dionna but couldn’t find her.

So into the Vault we go. No Dionna or Rose. We go back to Jakes… they are not there either… and now we’ve managed to loose Jared’s friends. Ugh. Angela in tow we go back to the Vault… up the stairs… we finally run into two of his friends, Robert and Sierra (wild huh?). Angela takes them downstairs to go dance.

Jared and I continue on our hunt for our drunken friends. Down the stairs we go… when lo and behold.. there is Dionna and April. I’m irritated by now and just want to go home. I felt like we were babysitting. Finally we all managed to be on the dance floor but were missing Robert. Jared texts him… he’s at Jake’s.

So the world is right again… I go outside and sit down.. it is like 1 am. After a few minutes of a breather I go back in.. dance a little bit but am not having much fun. Jared and I decide we want to go home… so we start rounding everyone up…. or so we think. By 1:30 we head outside… just the two of us.. thinking they are following us.

We soon find out they are not.. and we sit outside freezing our asses off waiting for them because we cannot go back in now. Around 1:45 Robert comes rolling up talking about how he just had the best conversation with some guy and his girlfriend. So here we are… waiting…. freezing.

Finally the girls come rolling out. Dionna, Angela, and Rose are all falling over each other. Angela and Rose decide to take their shoes off… I hurry them along… eager to get home by then. They decide they want a hot dog outside of Jake’s.

This is where I took Jared’s friends and piled them in my car leaving Jared with Angela, Dionna, and Rose. We four get in my car and start our hour drive home. I call Jared a few times but get no answer… thinking they just must have the music loud and don’t worry.

I’m about 20 miles out of town when my phone rings.. its Jared.

“Hey Jare Bear… how’s everything- oh you’re IPOD is in my glove box, right?”

“Yeah it is… but we have a problem- you might need to come back”

“What?”, I said as I pulled the car off the road.

“The girls got into a fight and now Dionna won’t let Angela in the car.”

I sigh… get a little bit of the story and ask for Dionna to be put on the phone.

“Hey Dionna… you need to get in the car.. Jared is going to drive you guys home”

The response I get is somewhat calm but soon turns to her bashing Angela. I’m getting more and more upset saying that we are all going home tonight and she needs to just get in the car. By the end Im screaming for her to “get in the fucking car” then tell her to give the phone back to Jared.

I tell him that I don’t care what happens… get them in the car.. we’re going home. In th background I can hear Angela screaming and tell him to let me talk to her. Again I’m calm at first but become pretty agitated quickly… telling her to get in the car. She says she would but Dionna won’t let her.

By now I’m pissed and tell her to give the phone back to Jared.

“I’m coming back and you tell those fuckers I’m pissed cause this is bullshit.”

I end the call. There is no exits near to turn around so instead I use one of this turn arounds that is illegal for people to use. I didn’t care… I was pissed… I was tired.. and I wanted to go home.

Half way back Jared and I are on the phone again… nothing has changed… told him I’d be there in ten minutes.

I just pull off the exit… going around the curves quickly with two passed out drunk people in my backseat when my phone rings. It’s Jared- they’ve got into the car. By then I had had it. I told him to stay there because I had not just drove back twenty miles just to turn around again.

I pull up shortly after.. get out of the car… slam the door. I go up to a quiet SUV and begin to lay into them.

“This is bullshit… why did I have to come back and deal with this? I’ve babysat all night and all I want to do is go home”.

Angela has her arms crossed staring out the window.. Dionna is doing the same. This is where Dionna lays into Angela again.. I scream that I dont care what happened.

“Jared give me my keys and get out” Dionna said

“NO! We’re all going home tonight.. Jared is driving you guys home” I screamed.

“I’m just going to sleep here”, she said back.

I start to freak out again… that we are ALL going home and Jared is driving. Then I snatch open Angela’s door realizing that Jared would not have a peaceful drive home.

“Get out of the car! You’re going with me… GET OUT OF THE CAR!”.

By then I’m freaking out and Angela is franticly trying to get out. Once securely in my car.. we all leave. Angela rants for like twenty minutes before she passes out.

The story as I get it now is this. Jared wanted a hot dog… but didn’t have any money left. Rose and Dionna were going to eat their hot dog in front of him and not give theirs up or buy him one. Angela called them out on it.. saying it was bullshit because Jared had babysat them all night and was being their designated driver.

Apparently this is where all hell broke loose and I was called.

Through the drive home.. Jared and I called each other to check in. We were like ten minutes away from home when I get a call from him (its almost 4 am by now).

Dionna’s car ran out of gas this time. Seriously… if anything else could go wrong.

I sigh.. turn around… AGAIN. Go get gas and a gas can to get them off the side of the road. $17 later I’m helping put the gas in the car so we can all just go home.

I dropped Jared’s friends off at his house… went and picked up Jared and Rose from Dionna’s house then dropped them off. By the time I made it home it was a little after 4:30 am. I climbed into bed and wished I had just stayed home that night.

Seriously it was a night from hell… I’ve decided never to be a DD for them ever again.. or if I do… to not babysit… but that is unlikely. I cannot explain how happy I was to be in bed next to Ben when I got home… it was a great feeling.


>Saturday night some friends and I went out dancing. I haven’t been clubbing in years.. literally. Not since 2001. It’s something I’ve wanted to do again for a while but never really had anyone who enjoyed that to go with. Ben does not like to dance… which bums me out. But, you take a person for who they are… and so I just accept that fact.

He was supposed to go with us but in the end he texted me and told me he really didn’t want to go. A friend of his was going to go as well to keep him busy while we danced, but he ended up with too much to do so he wasn’t able to go. Ben didn’t want me to be mad at him… and I wasn’t… I was just bummed out that we weren’t going to be spending the evening together.

I got all made up trying hard not to be sad. When he got home, we’d only have fifteen minutes together before I had to meet up with my friends. He walked in and the look on his face made me feel amazing. He told me how sexy I looked… and hugged me tight.

We chatted for a bit and then I headed off. We all were supposed to leave at 8:30… but ended up not making it out of town till closer to 10. My friends are always late like this.. which drives me nuts because Im always on time, if not early.

The weather was nothing less than shitty. This was kind of surprising because it was clear in town and then for ten miles up the interstate. All of the sudden the roads got slushy and I saw tons of break lights up ahead. I sighed… someone from the back seat said we should probably go back… knowing what I know now, I wish I had put this particular person (Rose) out on the side of the road and kept going (hehe).

I decided to keep going in hopes that it would clear up and not get worse. Throughout the whole one hour drive we had spats of rain, snow, and then clear skies. It was kind of strange. When it did snow.. I had to drive slow because of the angle it was coming down…. which made it difficult to see.

I trudged on and by the time we made it to the city we going to… it was clear skies… just really cold. We drank some in the car… I had like half a drink and decided I really didn’t want to drink after all. The rest of them chugged down their drinks and we climbed out to walk the two blocks to get to the club. We left our coats cause it would be warm inside… but paid for it all the way there. I clung to my friend Jared to keep warm.. he’s such a sweetheart.

We walked up and started paying to get in when some random guy recognized my friend Angela. She and I stood there talking to him… he was obviously drunk already. (Perhaps this is where I should say this is a gay club… which are way more fun than regular clubs because its about having fun and dancing.. not the hook up. The only gay person in our group was Jared). This guy (funny enough his name was Ben lol) was hitting on Angela and I.. which was kinda weird but whatever. He kept like touching us… it made me feel kind of uncomfortable.

He told Angela she was cute.. then looked at me and said I was too. I said thanks but that I was married… showed him my ring. He seemed to think that was a bad thing for me… but assured him I was happy. He said I had this bad girl look that was trying to be good…. whatever that is supposed to mean. They exchanged phone numbers and we made our way to the dance floor.

All five of us danced pretty hard… I could feel the burn in my legs. I was for sure that Id pay for it the next day but surprisingly didn’t. Rose and Dionna broke off first and went to get drinks. They returned shortly… we were still dancing. At some point someone bumped into Rose and spilled some of her drink on her hand… she got all pissy about it. I’m not sure what she was expecting… I mean, hello honey, its a crowded DANCE floor. She was a stick in the mud most of the night.

Jared and Angela ran into this “hot” guy that they would stalk for the rest of the night between being on and off the dance floor. They had met the last time they went clubbing. Supposedly he was gay and had a boyfriend. Over the course of the night we began to question this as he was making his rounds around the room kissing random girls, not guys. Towards the very end, he was making out with this VERY unattractive chick. It was gross to be honest.. not because of the whole thing.. but because of how many girls he had kissed that night.

Angela overheard this guy and his friend talking as closing time came saying something about him not being able to close the deal. Our only thoughts is that he’s not gay and that he was just trying to pick unsuspecting drunk girls up. Loser.

We made our way out.. surprised it was already closing time…. time sure does pass when you’re having fun. Dionna and Rose wanted hot dogs from the stand right outside so we stood around talking. Some random guy started talking to us… he had a hand held breathalysers.. obviously you drink too much if you need one of those. We had a whole interaction about this hehe.

So after they got their hot dogs we headed to the car and made our trek back home. We had a blast but I totally missed Ben and wished he had come. He might have been right- he might have been bored.. but then again.. maybe he wouldn’t have. I guess we’ll never know.

I called him when I got to the car cause he had texted me. He had told me he’d wait up for me… and even though it was two am.. he was indeed still awake. I told him I was about to head home and said I was going to rape him when I got there *evil grin*.

I can’t wait to do this again… hopefully next time Ben will come…. I was horny with all that dancing then… I can only imagine if I were dancing with him watching…. yep.. 🙂
