Bizarre Night Behavior

I had a brilliant idea tonight. A Late Night Drinking and Digging Party!

This was the test-drive for a future night when we'll actually invite over some age-appropriate family and friends and try it full-scale. Tonight? Just me and the man.

DISCLAIMER: Don't try this at home without careful attention to safety, nor should you get so drunk that fun becomes danger. Thanks!

It was great! We drank, and dug, and dug, and drank. He polished off four beers, me a modest (nearly) two. But, more importantly, we dug out somewhere between ten and twelve wheelbarrows full of future-patio dirt. The hole to Brazil, in our back garden, is becoming quite the impressive sight. We figure there's about 60-70% remaining, but we're making a lot of progress.

Now, should you want to throw your own Late Night Drinking and Digging Party, here's what you need:

  1. a really warm night
  2. two shovels
  3. two wheelbarrows
  4. two or more willing and questionably-sane people
  5. a big hole that needs digging
  6. a lot of good alcohol
  7. a camera to document the ridiculous event

In case you hadn't figured it out by now, we're not your average gardeners.

Sounds like an interesting way to spend an evening...especially if you don't have to drive somewhere later. Dig (and drink) safely. Mom

LOL! Thanks, mom. It made the work less grueling, that's for sure, and we got a TON done. And nope, no driving. Just quietly going to bed after a long, long shower.

We've thrown a few of these. We've also thrown a few "old fashioned folding parties" and a "put up the clothesline before our power bill climbs to new and never-before-seen heights" -- yup!

Mmmhmm. It's sort of the Mary Poppins approach to work.. A spoonful of sugar.. a carton of beer. Whatever works!
