Wher­ever there is rev­elry, there will be tales to tell

“My hus­band and I were at a Rolls-royce New Year’s Day cel­e­bra­tion when we de­cided to test the sound­proof­ing of the mar­que’s soft-top convertible, the Dawn. We hopped in, closed the door, and I paired my phone with the car’s sound sys­tem via Blue­tooth. From there, we danced to YMCA blast­ing through the speak­ers. The sales man­ager stand­ing out­side said she heard noth­ing. The Dawn has ex­cel­lent sound­proof­ing!”

“Just hold it while I go,” I heard a woman say from the next stall at a ho­tel bath­room. “But there’s no room! I’ll have to stand out­side,” huffed her friend. As I ex­ited the loo, I saw the friend hold­ing a lav­ish, beaded evening gown! When she saw my stunned face, she gig­gled, “It’s too tight for her to go potty so she de­cided to take off her en­tire gown! To this, I quipped, “Oh my gosh, she’s stark­ers! What if there’s a fire?”

“My fam­ily and I were in­vited to the birth­day party of a se­nior mem­ber of a royal fam­ily, but when we got to the venue, we saw that the guests didn’t look a day over 18 years old. We found out that this was the birth­day party of a younger fam­ily mem­ber! But our gifts were al­ready on the gift counter, so we had to leave them there and head to the cor­rect cel­e­bra­tion empty-handed and em­bar­rassed.”

“I was at a wine pair­ing din­ner where cham­pagne was meant only as an aper­i­tif. When the an­nounce­ment came to pro­ceed into the ball­room for din­ner, most guests fin­ished their bub­bly and made their way in. How­ever, one fe­male guest, tot­tered in car­ry­ing three flutes for her­self—two on her left hand and one on her right. I’m guess­ing she couldn’t hold a fourth glass be­cause of the huge di­a­mond ring she had on!”
