Last night I went off to rugby practise around 6.45pm. It was a mere 9C outside, but we all know how tough rugby players are. After an hour of touch (I scored 3 tries!), it was time for the traditional visit to the bar. A couple of beers and a few jokes later, I headed off home at around 9pm. I was about 2 blocks from home when Elmo started giggling on my phone – a text message! It was Deb. “We’re hungry. Grab us something to eat.”
I was hoping that the kids were in bed at this hour, so this meant that we had visitors. I had no wallet on me, so I’d have to go home first. I opened the front door to find 2 giggling women on the couch, two glasses of wine in hand and an empty bottle on the floor. And yes, the kids were in bed.
“We’re hungry.” (And a little bit tipsy too I would guess!)
“I’ve got no cash.”
“Here’s $30. Get us something.”
“Pizza?” (The only thing still open this time of night in our area.)
Did I forget to mention that I love pizza? And that I had dinner before going to rugby practise?
Anyway, 20 minutes later I got back home to find a second bottle of wine open and the girls looking at photos from a recent party that we all went to. One and a half pizzas later, I was ready for bed but the girls were still jibber-jabbering away, so I fired up the Wii for a couple of games of Fifa ’09. Well, I had to work off all that pizza that I’d just eaten! By midnightish, it was definitely time to retire to the bedroom!
Tonight we’re off to a footy game. AFL that is. Essendon are taking on the Western Bulldogs in a must-win game at Etihad Stadium. But more about it next week.
BTW, I have the left over pizza for lunch today!
