The hour is late. What was once loud boisterous conversation has quieted to a low murmur in the background. The table dancers and lampshade wearers have long ago stumbled their way home, and left the remnants of a fairly fun party. Gift wrapping shreds litter the floor, blowing about here and there from the wind of a person walking by. The party food table is littered with crumbs and dirty paper plates, waiting for their plunge to the garbage. Music continues to play lowly in the background. Stray bottles and cups fill up every available horizontal surface, some half empty, some half full. The door to the basement is securely locked, thank goodness no one asked about the clink of chains rising up to greet them every now and then.
The time has come for last call. One more drink, one last handful of chips or peanuts, and soon it will be time to mozy on home. I would offer up left over ice cream cake, but it disappeared long ago.
I want to thank everyone who stopped by, and everyone who left me a comment as well. You all have made my blog warming party quite fun. Please feel free to leave as many comments as you would like up until 3pm central time today, and I will enter you once for each comment in the drawing to win the apron.
Please stay tuned for my last and final installment of my Blog Warming Day 7, the winning announcement and celebration of my birthday.
