Last week I hosted a fairly modest Bob’s Burgers BBQ/ swim party as a way to bring some good chums together and have an excuse to go crazy with decor. I painted some signs and backdrops, a playlist I compiled of the shows songs played in the background, and I even grilled burger sliders inspired by some of Bob’s recipes and the guy behind “The Bob’s Burgers Experiment” (I actually used the ingredients necessary, my favorite being: parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme for the Charbroil Fair burger!).
My Kuchi-Kopi invitations actually glow in the dark! That’s right!
As a party activity I made a little black book and scribbled “Erotic Friend Fiction” on the cover. The objective: (borrowed from high school English class) was to partake in a collaborative writing assignment which involved passing around the booklet as everyone added a paragraph to the story, making for some very hilarious erotica.
For favors I emblazoned lunch bags with the phallic “fish-rocket” logo from the “Bob Day Afternoon” episode and filled them with “Tina” glasses, a “Gene” kazoo, “Bob’s” mustache, “Linda’s” order pad, a pair of “Louise’s” bunny ears, Bob’s restaurant flyer, and made little “Burger of the Day” chalkboards for the nametags. Lastly, desserts were adorable little burger cupcakes!
I wasn’t able to go as “all out” as I initially wanted (I would have loved to have drawn all of my friends in the BB style), but I think things came together decently and more importantly: everyone enjoyed themselves! I can only hope that it was a party that Bob (or perhaps more so Linda…) would be proud of!
“What do you we do?” Emma asked frantically as she circled the nest inside the cave.
licked her lips and she crossed her arms over her chest as if this sort
of situation arose every day. “We wait. You can stop pacing. It’s not
going to make it hatch any faster.”
“Hatch?” Emma’s chin quivered as a horrified look sprouted on her face. “I can’t believe Lily just…just took off!”
well…abandoning the young and defenseless is a rather reoccurring theme
around here,” Regina looked at the dragon egg thoughtfully. “And here I
am ready to care for whatever comes out of that egg.”
you’re going to give me some guilt trip about giving up Henry, you can
save it… and this is not karma or fate…destiny, whatever you fairytale
people call shitty situations,” Emma ranted and continued to circle the
The egg was big enough for a human baby and slightly
speckled. Regina maintained calm, but Emma was about to lose it. “I’m
not going to lecture you about Henry. All I should have done is thank
you for giving him up so I had the joy of raising him. This dragon baby,
however, I’m not so sure I’m willing to commit to eighteen years of
living with an uncontrollable arsonist.”
“Are you serious? I’m
going to kill Lily! How did she…birth….erm… Lay…or squeeze this giant
vagina egg out anyway?” Emma was full of questions; her concerns were
interrupted by a distinct cracking sound. “Oh shit, it’s coming! Where
the hell is grandma?”
“Emma, it’s just a baby…” Regina moved
closed to the egg and examined the hairline crack. A little moving
silhouette was visible inside the egg, and Regina furrowed her eyebrows
as she inspected it, “…I think.”
“Well, Lily was born human. She
only turned all dragony when she got to Storybrooke,” Emma swallowed
hard as her throat went dry.
“With these dragon babies it’s a
50/50 chance of the babe hatching out human or dragon. They can usually
change back and forth right away, but don’t know they’re doing it,”
Regina explained, having much more familiarity with the dragon species
than Emma had.
