Mouse Races

Mike and I had a date on Friday night. My work has a party that actually allowed us to bring significant others! YEAH!!! So off went Mike and I to the mouse races. Apparently it's a fund raiser for the Firemen, no we didn't bet on any but we watched a TON of people get really excited about the $4, $6, or $8 or so they may have won. During the night this 'nice' lady from a different company (there were about 6 different companies there each having approx 2-3 tables) was carrying her pop cans from the bar area to her table when she dropped one. Standing about 5 feet away it sprayed me right in the face and all over. Without realizing it my friend Elena was turning into my human shield... albeit not a good one since she's only 5 feet tall and I had heels on. So Elena and I were trapped being sprayed and Mike and Mary were saved by the two of us. The spray went on for like 15 sec.. or so.. well it seemed like it anyways. I was covered in pop.. all sticky.. Oh and the lady the dropped it, not so much as a "gee, I'm sorry", or "Oh my gosh... what happened!". Nothing. It was then that we all noticed a wool jacket that was about 1.5 feet from the pop can and SOAKED.. liquid was completely covering it. It took about 2 seconds to remember that was my jacket. So off to the cleaners we are going tomorrow and I came home to a nice hot shower after being covered in stickiness.
Date nights are the best.
