- Funky Town by Phone Phoummithone
I had to work late yesterday, and didn’t think I’d make it to my co-worker’s son birthday party. Then the birthday boy stopped by and personally invited me, twice he reminded me “…don’t forget, it starts at 6:30 tonight.”
It rained on the way there, the place was starting to get busy with kids running around, and her family gathered near the entrance and I saw a man walking over to the Mechanical Bull, I asked my co-worker if he were her cousin, she said, “Who, him? He’s my brother!” She said that I could blog about him, see how long he’d last on this “Mechanical Bull”…only a few second.
After he found out what I was going to do with the photos, he looked at me and said, “You’re crazy!” I told him, “Hey, I’m not the one on the Mechanical Bull and being airborne.” He showed me his injury, bruises and scratches, thanks for the good laugh, closeup image, and to think that I’m the crazy one 🙂 .

Cake time, Happy Birthday little man.
