Here's a fun endeavor for our more adventurous parents. This is a step-by-step guide to sure-fire laughter and joy:
Step 1: Invite friends over for a cookout and margaritas.
Step 2: While the food is cooking, use a small bottle of Patron Silver to make several rounds of margaritas.
Step 3: Observe a nine-year-old boy playing with the now-empty bottle, which has a cool shape and a convenient cork.
Step 4: Observe that your wife is not in the room.
Step 5: Emit a mad scientist laugh and tell the boy we're going to play a trick on Mom.
Step 6: Rinse the bottle well, but leave a little water (about 3 shots worth).
Step 7: Have the boy walk up to Mom, hold up the bottle, and say, "Dad said I could drink this!"
Step 8 (must be done IMMEDIATELY after step 7, timing is critical in comedy routines): The boy uncorks the bottle and chugs while Mom stands up in a panic saying, "No, I'm sure Daddy...NO!!!"
Step 9: Laugh.
Step 10: Catch your breath and wipe the snot bubble from your nose.
Step 11: Laugh.
Step 12: Repeat steps 9-11.
Hope you did something fun on your holiday weekend too!
