Dude, where's my car?

Hip Hip Hooray! Today was the last day of class with my students. After work the faculty had a big Christmas party at a hotel near the school. I can honestly say that is the first adult drinking party I've ever been to. And it was so fun. But to be honest, I couldn't really tell if Loving and Christian were drunk, cause they always act crazy. Anyway . . . I left a little early, and I was walking around the city thinking about how gorgeous the city is at night time, when all of the sudden I realized I had no idea where my car was. So I went back to the hotel and then I was so turned around I couldn't even guess where I was parked. So Hawkins and Jardine come walking out of the party and I have to ask them to point me in the direction of the school, and then I was even more confused because I knew that was not the way I had come. So I still couldn't figure out where I'd parked. They had to think I was so dumb, or drunk. So I walked around the block and then ran into Bryant who tried to convince me to come back to the party and share his whiskey with him. And last but not least, a pretty drunk and friendly Loving came out and wished me some Happy Holidays before he hit the bars. Gosh I love the 40-year-old Black men I work with. They are so great!

I eventually found my car. After a little prayer and some blind faith. Pick a street, any street. Heavenly Father will make sure it's the right one. And it was!

Honey Bun,
What was in your punch? Worse than losing your car is trying to remember what you drove to the store in! I can't feel too sorry for you when I case the the Quality Market parking lot for nearly fifteen minutes when I finally realize I came in the truck!
Love, Pa
