Its been awhile since I’ve done one of these party recaps. I belong to a little karaoke crew and we go about once a month to Duets. We’re each allowed to bring one or two plus ones. After cursing me for the past month for not yet inviting him, Ayo (along with repeat guest Mariya) came along for the raucous thing that is karaoke. This is our story.
Before karaoke, we usually eat and drink somewhere beforehand around KTown. Bon Chon and their magical fried chicken is often the default location. While eating, we noticed that Ayo has an OCD way of eating his chicken. While the rest of us tossed the bones into the communal trash, Ayo neatly and obsessively lined his up like some twisted fried chicken graveyard on his plate.
During dinner Mariya regaled with tales from the most dramatic wedding ever, a wedding where she was deeply bit by a dog. Here, she showed off the bite and by show I mean, we held her arm down so we could look and go “ewwwww.”
Once at Duets, it didn’t take long for us to shift into karaoke fifth gear. This picture was taken around the third song I believe and people are already standing on the seat.
I won’t say who but Rolando accidentally knocked off Andy’s glasses which meant for Lynda: PHOTO OP!
Ayo too concurred: PHOTO OP!…as Andy points at his blind eyes, “Ummm guys…” Andy had been talking about getting new glasses anyways so I think we actually all did him a big favor.
I don’t remember what we were singing, but apparently Ayo and I are the only ones that think this song was worth raising our arms for.
Rolando FINALLY recognized the song. And he was happy.
I was saying to Andy, “I’M SORRY I SPILLED YOUR DRINK ON YOUR SHIRT. I WILL BE WILLING TO PAY FOR ITS DRY CLEANING.” Andy replied, “IT’S OKAY BRO.”
Whatever Mike was singing in the background this whole time was making us dance!
Lynda singing earnestly. Andy thinking “What am I singing??” Jay photo bombing.
Andy hitting them high notes. His fallen testicles are somewhere on the ground.
I’m speechless. Just when we think Andy’s run out of expressions he pulls this.
Lynda wants more Bon Chon fried chicken.
We all had been waiting for over an hour for Jodeci’s “Lately” aka one of the greatest songs of love, heartbreak and harmony. When it finally started playing we. went. crazy.
We went crazy for Jodeci except for Lynda who had never heard it before. I can sense your outrage. Lower your pitchforks people.
And on that note, the end.
