Lost Lions and Ambush Dining

Ok, I’m evil. I really, really, try to be good. In fact, I think a cornerstone of my faith depends on it. But every once in a while I get this idea…

I sent the following email to the “Lost Lions,” four of us that were once close high school friends and have recently reunionized ourselves. I just made up that word, “reunionized.” I like it; I think I’ll keep it.

Greets, Leones Perdidos. Our next adventure will involve “ambush dining.” Imagine four old, er, I mean mature high school friends getting together for dinner… and the manager is a fifth high school friend. Ambush dining, fun and games. It’ll involve a drive for all of us because wouldn’t you know Paul lives and works about as far away from all of us as he can get in the Champion area.

So it’ll have to be a Saturday night to accomodate the driving. This Saturday (9/25), if I recall correctly, is his birthday. Can we all be available for dinner Saturday night?

The Lost Lions are Lori, Sean, Jo, and myself. Paul was our fifth back then, but for a variety of reasons we suspected he melted his brains with chemicals and suddenly wanted nothing to do with the rest of us. Sean and I made a few feeble attempts to meet up with him over the years, but Paul deftly avoided us each time. He won’t be able to avoid us if we’re all sitting together at a table in the restaurant he manages, will he?

And it just dawned on me that it’s his birthday this weekend. This should be fun. And I say that in the most innocent, innocent of ways. 😛

  1. That’s what I was thinking. I don’t want to burst our bubble, but he may try to get the night off.

    Maybe you could call and ask who the manager will be this weekend…..


  2. Dang it, that Paul is a crafty fellow.

    I just called out there to check on reservations. They tell me Paul no longer works there. Somebody must have tipped him off.


  3. How bad an ex girlfriend am I that I didn’t remember this weekend being his birthday? I don’t know if I’m disappointed that he isn’t there anymore, or relieved that I don’t have to try to lose 30 punds by this weekend.


  4. When I was reading the post I too was thinking along the same lines as the others that he is probably taking the day off because it is his birthday – – when you go will you be taking him a card signed by all of you? That way if he isn’t there you can leave the card with someone to put on his desk so he knows you were all there and remembered it was his birthday.
