A good time was had by all, and even some mishaps helped make the day. It’s the kind of stuff good comedy is made of, and in the end, you’re left laughing with your friends: Invite a bunch of sailors over for burgers and find out you’ve broken the grill. (Did that happen when we were cleaning it up, or is it just old?) Or fight to defend yourself when people in their 20s and 30s give you trouble for opting out of the Moon Bounce. (APS is 20 not two, and I’m pretty sure the people asking about it would have exceeded the weight limit…) Good thing our guests were happy and laid back.
Really, it’s those imperfections that make you band together and triumph! Grill emergency, shmrill emergency. Not skipping a beat, Harriet in accounting came to the rescue when she called her husband and requested that he deliver us from momentary chaos and drop off a proxy grill. (Thanks, Tom! You are awesome!)
DJ Grill Master Zach – who also happens to be the APS Shipping Manager – had it fired up in no time topped with sizzling BBQ bun stuffers. A good thing for us all to know: you can’t promise hungry sailors food and not come through! What did you think of the burgers? Zach insisted on that extra shaker of Montreal Steak Seasoning. Seems like he’s a man who knows.
