Quality Party Banter

A FlyI may be unprofessional at times, but I assume others find it extremely endearing. A scene from last night's party:

Me (standing behind our little coat-check table talking to the coat-check girls): "Hey guys, we're gonna be having the speeches soon if you want to come in to the—SHIT, my fly's undone. (Fixing the problem) This suit is great, but the fly has this problem where you zip up and sometimes the teeth come undone from the bottom up, making you sort of have to zip down then up again to make it catch one more time (gesturing). It's like re-cocking a shotgun."

Girls: (continue taking guests' coats)

Me: "I don't know, maybe I'll have to pin it at the bottom. Or something."

Girls: (hanging up goats)

Me: "Yeah, so remember to come inside in a few minutes for the speeches."

I love parties.

    I would expect no less of you Nick. I just feel bad for the goats that the girls were hanging.

    Just for that, I’m leaving it “goats”.

    were the goats alive or deceased? if they were alive, this would explain the girls’ ignorance to your fly situation, because the incessant bleating would have drowned you out… if dead however, the macabre scene would have desensitized anyone to your plight, making it a non issue… i have sympathy for you, i do nikolai, but dammit, dead goats on hooks? not even the greatest of prime ministers’ sons could distract me from the abomination occuriong in the coat… i mean goat check room… (if it wasn’t ben, who was it dammit? justin?)

    I love awkward silences, you can hear everything, even the sound of someone’s head thinking.
