Spinning Plates

Returning to Dumfries for the weekend can either end up in 2 different ways.  The first being that absolutely nothing is going on and you’re normally in store for a pretty dire weekend or the second way in which you’re likely to be swamped and have little or no time to actually see everyone when you are down.

This time it was the second scenario, which meant that I would be offered to go to two 21st parties and visit Dave when I was done.  So the analogy I like to use in this situation is ‘plate spinning’: trying to see as much of everyone as I can without spending too much time on specific groups in order to keep everyone happy.

Unfortunately the idea of going to see my good ol’ friend Dave changed pretty much as soon as the first drop of alcohol hit my tongue… it turned into a full night out.  I guess this point is the most important to remember when I start describing what happened next.

Ok, now phones and I really don’t mix when drunk.  Various people know this, in fact I’ve already had to apologise to someone this morning for accidentally sending texts meant for other people last night to her because I didn’t have the best vision last night – another point that should probably be stressed when you read the transcript of a phone call I made. 

Here’s the situation: we were supposed to meet various people in a pub in Dumfries called ‘The Granary’ at 00:15, at this point its around 00:45 and Ryan (who was supposed to be with us had ran off).

*picks up phone, goes to recent contacts and calls ‘Ryan’*
Mark: Ryan, it’s Mark I’m at the Granary, everyone seems to be coming out. I think they’re closing, where should we get you?
Other side: *silence*
Mark: RYAN!  RYAAAAAN!! OYE RYAN!!
Other side: Hello!
Mark: Where are you anyway?
Other side: eh?
Mark: Where-are-you?
Other side: On the Craigs Road
Mark: eh!? *confused*  Why the fuck are you on the Craigs Road!?
Other side: I live there
Mark: Eh!?
Otherside: you’ve got the wrong Clachrie, this is Ryans dad
Mark: *silence*  Oh, shit!!  Sorry Davie Boy!!
*call ends*

Cue much embarrassment, oh dear.
