I went to my first Mug Party last night. I thought it was about coffee and I even brought my own mug. That wasn’t what it was about.
The invitation said it was a costume party. I came as Pikachu. Everyone else wore fancy dresses and ornate opera masks.
Someone really should have told me.
Everyone was given a small bag of coins and a rubber hammer and it soon became apparent that a Mug Party was where people flitted around, politely knocking each other on the head and stealing their money.
I quickly lost all my money. Half an hour into the party, I had a splitting headache and was handing out IOUs to my muggers. I was so easy to mug, they were queuing up. By the end of the night, I was $182 in the hole.
That is the last time I let my mad Uncle Kent plan my birthday party.

Haha. Aren’t people supposed to give the birthday boy a break? Love the idea for a party, though I don’t think I’ll ever hold one. The last line zinger caught me off guard for a good laugh. Great one.

182 dollars. What money management!

What a horrible party! I would have guessed it was about coffee mugs, too, David. I think I would have disappeared from this party in a hurry. I enjoyed this funny and dark combo!

Ha ha, wouldn’t trust you with my money ever David! 🙂

Hey, that’s not fair. You should have been able to call “out” once your coin bag was emptied. Stupid Mad Uncle Kent and his dumb rules.

That’s some party. Glad I wasn’t invited!

Like that – handing out IOUs to muggers 🙂

I wonder which credit agency they report to. Do muggers hire debt collectors for deadbeat victims? 🙂

nice birthday party! 🙂
next time he plans a party one should escape to the other end of the world- as far as possible
