A Simple Celebration

Today’s WordPress Daily Prompt reads, “Celebrate Good Times: “You received some wonderful, improbable, hoped-for-good news. How do you celebrate?”

I have two possible scenarios running through my head.

1.) Back when I was a child, the basement of my house was used as a get-together for the family and folks in the neighborhood to come over and have a good time on Saturday nights. Listen to music, eat, drink, play cards and relax. There’s a pool table, a pinball machine, a Pamela Anderson cardboard stand-up (yes), an extra kitchen, and well, just about everything. We stopped doing the Saturday nights in late 2003 when my father passed away. The basement is a mess these days. But this would be the number one choice area for a celebration if possible. Can’t blame me, can ya?

2.) The simple celebration: go out to dinner with friends and/or family, relax and drive around. Maybe hit up a Books-A-Million! Yes, Books-A-Million. While I think their books are overpriced (look to Amazon), I’ve always enjoyed going in and flipping through some books. Always found it to be relaxing. A celebration, though? Hey, when I think of celebrating, I think of two things: A.) having a good time by any means necessary, and B.) relaxing.
