Name That Tune

It's Tuesday again, so you know what that means...Talk To Us Tuesday with Impulsive and Shawn!



I'm bringing awkward back.  Last night, the BFFAE (and crew) and I went to Name That Tune trivia, our Monday night ritual.  We had a group of 7, and ended up coming in 2nd place for the first two rounds and won the third round.  Go Team FU!  (For those of you wondering, that is our team name because a large majority of our team graduated or works for Furman University--hence the FU--whereas I am a proud Wofford Terrier...a rival.)  To give you a hint at how goofy we are, take a look at our answer sheet, filled out by Golf Guy:
Please note the number of players... #nerd
Towards the end of the night, we end the game with head-to-head Name That Tune battles.  As people were battling, this group of drunk men wandered in.  They were clearly out-of-towners, as they had on nametags on lanyards still.  The drunkest of the men, named Nicolas (I know because I saw his nametag) took a liking to two of the gals in our group, M.Penn and MG.  We noticed they were speaking French and discovered that they were French Canadian.  M.Penn and MG bailed and went to a neighboring bar.  A few minutes later, the Frenchies asked me and the BFFAE for directions to a nearby bar.  To be funny, the BFFAE gave them directions to the bar where the gals had fled.

Here is the text exchange between me and MG:

Moi:  We sent the Frenchies your way.  You're welcome.
MG:  Oh hell no.  I'm sending their maple syrup ass back your way.
MG:  OMG they're here.
Moi:  No refunds or exchanges.  Sorry!

I went over there with the BFFAE, Mr. S (the BFFAE's fiance), and Golf Guy.  Needless to say, the Frenchies made fools of themselves and were super sketchy.  It was a blast to witness.

We also decided that we needed to start a band that makes music solely out of sound effects.  I dubbed us The Onomonopias.  Clever.  We had our very first practice in the bar last night.  The train whistle noise was a big hit.  At one point, we looked around and pretty much everyone in the bar was trying it.  We are clearly the trendsetters.

I know I have some things I need to address on here (sweet acknowledgments, etc.) and I swear I will get to those.  Forgive me for being slowly.

Awkward hugs,
A

The FU part is hilarious. My hubby is from a town that's near Finlandia University (FU) and I begged him for an FU sweatshirt. My MIL was not happy that we made that purchase so now I wear it around her all the time! =)

Thanks for linking up! You're the BEST!

The fact that you sent those men to your friends is hysterical and so something I would do. No exchanges or refunds, I'm dying!

Thanks for linking up with us!
