Dinner with the kids

A bunch of my friends came over for dinner last night - delightful and, for a change, not so debaucherous. All in all very enjoyable to see some of my closest friends most of whom we hadn't seen since the wedding.

My friends Aviva and Scott brought their beautiful baby over. It would seem that Mr. Max is getting teeth, this theory was spawned by his love of gumming anything cold and wet. He may look like he'd actually been drinking beer - but fear not fine reader - he couldn't keep the eye's open for the flash.

A story: When Max's father first moved to Toronto with his gfriend Aviva, we were in the height of our young constantly inebriated and debauched twenties. A time that we went out every night and sometimes came home but mostly found another bed to sleep in.

One night Scott wanted to hook up and get silly. This from a man who up until this point had been an on again off again teetotaller of varying degrees. So he and I were smoking herbal cigarettes and playing Tomb Raider on Playstation when Tania called and wanted to hook up for drinks at a local watering hole, Ted's Wrecking Yard. Flash forward 7 hours the night ending at 4:30 am at the Matador with me getting up in the grill of a trucker and eating a gyros? maybe poutine...who knows.

Flash forward another 7 hours later Aviva picks him up with less than no sympathy and brings him to the hospital where at the age of 25, he gets his stomach pumped, the Responsible Drinking Speech from the nurse and the stinkeye from his lover. It was a fucking great night though.

Anyhoo, meet Max - he'll know responsibl drinking years before Scott did.

That would be Uncle Nelson in the back quietly planning the future corruption of young Max.

Scott just read this post and has a message for you: "Tell her she's an asshole". He said it with a smirk though, so no worries. We're trying some tough love at the moment. 5 more minutes of crying and then I'm going in. He seems to be slowing down though. And your link didn't link, just thought I'd let you know. Thanks for last night...
