So, Me and my brother got invited to this awesome party at his friend’s house. We knew there will be a lot of people from different high schools in the area there – it was supposed to be very big and grand and just basically the coolest. We were pretty much excited.
Naturally, we arrived there with high spirits and started drinking, well, spirits almost immediately. Some guy just randomly handed us cups filled with rum coke and we partied the night away, so to speak. The parents were out of town, of course. The neighbors were apparently on some ski trip as well, so they blasted music so loud that it was really hard to talk to people. Some people got drunk of course, but the craziest thing happened to me and this girl who was so clumsy, she slammed on one of the cabinets that was a divider, and took me with her. So we were there, slumped on the floor, with broken bits of the display case around us. Everybody stared. It was so embarrassing.
Luckily, the dude who lived in the house had the foresight to pack everything fragile and hid them in the attic and rooms and inside cabinets. But still, it will be a lot to pay for something like that, plus is it even possible to find the exact same thing? The original occupants of the display cases were shot glasses. Needless to say, me and the girl were kicked out angrily after that and has to pay the damages or else we get in more trouble.
I couldn’t completely blame the girl as I was trying to playfully push her at that time, so she kept on blaming me again and again. Finally, we agreed to split the cost between ourselves. All my summer money will be gone, I thought miserably, but it’s better than the alternative. We searched frantically online, looking for fast shipping and a look-alike of the cabinet as the parents are gone for a week. We finally settled on this holder for shot glasses after hitting up a friend, who was a furniture seller, recommended it. It wasn’t the exact same replica but it seemed a solid look-alike if you don’t look closely. Same color, same build.
I had to borrow some more money as the girl failed to come up with her share, sigh. But it came after three days and we helped install it in the house with the pissed-off dude who kept on muttering how his parents will kill him. I don’t think they ever found out, though, as it’s almost been three days since the parents came back. Hopefully, they never find out!
