I can’t BELIEVE I haven’t told this story yet.
As you know, SoulFire is near and dear to my heart.
And it’s because of the people and cherished memories.
So many loving hugs, smiling faces, and open hearts!
Each time I’ve gone to SoulFire, it’s with my BFF Tejas.
The first time we ever went, we took his Motorbeast (the RV) and did a “mock up” of Burning Man.
To see if we could live with each other.
Within minutes of arriving and setting up, I was making Tejas a cocktail.
He handed me his cup, which was a LARGE MCDONALD’S cup that used to hold soda in it.
I made him a QUADRUPLE!
Actually, what I should say is that I MADE HIM A QUADRUPLE WITHOUT TELLING HIM!
[I call it a QUADRUPLE, but really I have no idea how big it was. I just kept pouring tequila.]
I thought it would last the next several hours.
Well, he drank it down, not realizing how much tequila I put in it. . .
. . .and proceeded to forget the rest of the evening.
No memory of having dinner. No memory of getting nicknamed by a sexy woman.
I, on the other hand, proceeded to walk around naked (it was a naturalist resort, btw) then semi naked in a tank top and booty shorts.
Let’s just say when I woke up in the morning, I couldn’t find my jeans!
Late into the evening however, someone came to fetch me to bring Tejas home to his RV.
He was sitting on a bench, happy as a lark, ready to go to bed.
And do you know, I managed to get him to the RV, undressed, and even got his C-PAP machine on him before I went to bed.
I am one hell of a good friend (or good at making up for being a BAD friend and getting my BFF wasted).
Tejas and I always have a good laugh about it now.
The night I got him drunk, lost my pants, and put him to bed!
