Pool Party 2007

Yesterday was a coworker's annual pool party. Drinks, fun, heat and sun were all had in abundance. Unlike for some of the other previous parties this summer, I restricted myself to mixing one type of drink: the Blue Hawaiian. It seems to be one of the more popular libations that I have offered, although I found Grant's Wai Niu to be more refreshing in the hot sun. By limiting myself to a single cocktail I was able to premix. This relieved me of the need to stay sober enough to be able to accurately measure and remember any recipes. I managed to keep my wits about me against my best efforts, but I was rewarded by the opportunity to view two new (to me) games. First, we see the illusive game Cornhole played in all its glory. Yes, Dave brought it for us all to enjoy.

Cornhole looked like it would be easy to play; it wasn't. I played twice and both times I was on the losing team. I think I may have been mostly responsible for those losses. And next, after he was much more intoxicated, we see a crowd enjoying Basket Grant.

There didn't seem to be a shortage of folks waiting to throw things at his head.
