How could you possibly say goodbye to one of your best friends without a trip to TGI Fridays? Impossible!
This is where the partying stared in earnest. Ben was ready to go before anyone else. He even invented a new dance craze that he was calling “the waft”. Simply amazing.
Like TGI Friday’s, you cannot possibly say farewell without a solid round of karaoke. We walked in to the most insane rendition of “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” by some local heshers. Their skill may have psyched us out a bit, but we soon found our karaoke sealegs and some shit went down. Sarah, Danny and I: “How Soon as Now”. Vance: An extremely memorable rendition of “Get Back”. Gabe: a beautiful recreation of “Private Eyes”. Ultimate bar sing along: “Bohemian Rhapsody”. And of course, an ender to end them all: “More Than A Feeling” belted out like it was our last moment on Earth and nothing would save the planet except for ten people giving the best Brad Delp that their honest hearts could muster. Needless to say, Earth is still here.
Afterwards the only obvious thing to do was to go upstairs to Danny brother’s house and listen to the same Morrissey cd six times in a row and make sure Danny knows how much we love him.
