Last year I was invited to an Edward Scissorhands party. The invite said only that, with no mention of having to bring anything. When I arrived at the party, I was taken to the side of the building where two people used masking tape to almost permanently attach a 40 ounce beer to each hand. Then I was set free. As I walked around talking to other people with these large beers attached to their hands, I realized the dilemma. The hosts were the only people with their hands free and they had a sign put up one on one of the walls with the 2 rules of the party.
1. No dumping beer.
2. No hands free until bottles are empty.
Now, most of you convert quickly in your mind and understand that you are growing by 5 pounds and that creates a fair amount of pressure on some people. I'd like to think this idea would be entertaining for any corporate office or family.
People put too much emphasis on ole’ Charlie Darwin’s theory about the survival of the fittest. It has produced a cottage industry of shake-weights, special-muscle-morphing powder drinks, and girly men that sell exercise videos. Not me.
