Tamale Dance Party
I went back to Oklahoma for the first time in about 4 months this weekend. Just got back to the upper west side. It feels great to be able to come back to the city. I went in and out of Newark because they have a direct flight to OKC, but its a bit of a trek to get out there to take the subway then the bus out there but overall not too bad.
I went to be in the wedding for my friend's Scott and Katie. It was a great time. So much free food and alcoholic beverages and got to see my old friends. I stayed with my friend Dan the former Teenage Hand Model in the rugged streets of south OKC, home to Color Me Badd. Dan said he thought one of the guys from Color Me Badd now owns a tire shop there. I digress, the wedding went well, I'm glad to see that Scott and Katie will be happy together. Its crazy to think they are now married. I got to see the beginning of their relationship less than 2 years ago.
Dan and I kept our tuxedos on all day and went around to several gatherings telling people we are getting our money's worth of the tuxedo rental. Dan took me to his parent's house where his mom who is Nicaraguan was having a tamale party, it was outstanding. The Tejano music was blasting and people were already hotstepping when we came in. After I ate 2 amazing homemade tamales and drank a few more beers Dan's mom didn't have to try to hard to convince me to show my moves. It was good times.
