Dustin celebrated his 24th birthday the summer of 2007. We had a bunch of people over at our place, which actually meant that everyone hung out in our garage, in our parking area or wandered around on the grass next to our place.
We had a couch in our garage that eventually got moved out onto our lawn. Yeah, we were cool like that. And we placed bocce ball in the long grass, nearly losing balls a few times.
We were all tipsy to drunk by the evening after drinking from about noon on and being in the sun. All of us except for my friend and coworker, Vinny, who offered to drive our drunk butts to the local pizza place.
In the van, Dustin and my friend’s husband, Jono, sat in the back. They very soon realized that there was a moth that wanted to be along for the ride. Rather than react like normal, sane human beings they both FREAKED OUT when they noticed the poor little guy. And, of course, it got worse when the moth actually LANDED on Dustin. If you look closely at the picture or enlarge it you can see the moth on the collar of Dustin’s shirt.
Of course, the rest of us in the van thought it was hysterical watching two drunk guys screaming at a moth of all things. And to this day we still bring it up. Sadly, the boys thought the whole thing was funny too so we can’t embarrass them too much with the story.
