(Side note: Adrian likes to call this book "Where the Things Going Wild" which makes me think of a certain inappropriate series where women flash their goods....which is not a children's book, at all. I ought to correct him, but then he goes and says, "What the heck I am talking about?" And then how can I?)
So when I think about telling you about that lovely party we had, I think about my other projects and how they roar their terrible roars and gnash their terrible teeth and I go back to them. You know, so they don't eat me up.
So with my wild projects ready to pounce at any moment, let me let you meet the guest of honor, who will tell you in his own words about the party:
(Before Adrian comes, let me say this: the party looked better in my head. That said, my husband loved it, which I guess is what really matters. Right? Oh please say right.)
Hi. This is Adrian and I'm gonna talk a little bit about my best birthday party ever. Well, probably many of you will think this party was awesome and nice and, you know, it was. Also many of you don't know Mexicans. Like true Mexicans. And I'm gonna to tell you a little bit about Mexican birthday parties.
First, you invite tons of people. You buy tons of food and toooooooons of alcohol. The party starts and people eat. By the middle of the party, on one side all the women are talking and the other side, there's a bunch of guys drinking by the cooler, talking about their jobs and how nice their cars look. And of course, don't forget about kids running all over the place. That's why I think the party my wife threw me last Saturday was not only awesome and nice. It was the shit. Everybody enjoyed it. Everybody hung out with everyone, men and women together. No kids running all over the place. No drunk guys drinking by the cooler. And the best part was that the Mexicans enjoyed it even though it was so different and new.
This party had a Circus theme and had decorations all over. There were Circus snacks and hamburgers and hot dogs. We brought out our wii which had Carnival Games to play. My wife had prizes for the carnival games. And she set up a photobooth with big sunglasses, mustaches, noses and funny faces. This party was completely different than the parties that Mexicans have in this neighborhood.
She encouraged all the Mexicans to take pictures in the photobooth. That's the first time ever in the history of the United States that at a Mexican party with Mexicans from Mexico, people were in a funny photobooth. And the Mexicans enjoyed it! If you don't believe, just check out my brother and sister's pictures here.
Another thing that is really important is to give a big thank you to my friend Jenny for the cupcakes and the cake that she made for my party because the cupcakes were something new too, for a Mexican party. And they were delicious.
And I'm just gonna say thanks to my lovely and awesome and pretty and genius etc etc wife and to our friends Jenny, Ben and Emily for the party that they made for me.
So there you have it. Straight from the Oso's mouth.
And I hear what you're all thinking. You wish I'd have projects more often so you could hear more from Adrian. Unfortunately he's all tied up making shooting noises on his Droid. The man's got priorities.
