Sadly, I was unable to locate a picture of Suzy the bear for today’s Flashback Friday post. Thus, the history of my (not so) irrational fear of wild animals will have to wait.
But...do you remember this?
It was the summer of 2005 and this song was awesome. After camp had ended, a bunch of us rented an apartment in Florida for a week to sit on the beach. (Although the beach ended up being too hot for our Northern skin and went spent most of the week at the pool.)
We ate corn on the cob and grilled steaks. We slept four to a bed and M dipped his man goodies in a bucket of ice water.
One night we mixed a pitcher's worth of fruity cocktails and decided to play the Girlfriend drinking game. If I remember correctly the boys opted out…whether it was due to a lack of love for ‘N Sync or the intense desire to avoid our strong yet very pink cocktail, I’m not sure.
Us girls rounded up every drinking implement in the condo in preparation for the game.
The rules of the game were simple…every time they said the world girlfriend, we took a drink.
If you’ve ever heard the song you’ll know that this was one of those “better on paper” ideas. We struggled to get the concoction down before the next repetition of the word and were unable to refill the cups fast enough. We drained the pitcher of pink fruity goodness before the song even ended.
The next day, we woke up and had margaritas by the pool for breakfast. Oh to be young.
