imagine my surprise 

when i found out

that the party i was going to tonight

at my sweet irish friend’s house

had already happened last night

and

 when i stopped over today

 it looked like

a great time was had by everyone 

especially those who were there on the right night.

img_7493-2i think this may have been a trifle.

headed off to the puzzle house 

to try out an ‘escape room adventure’

just going in was a bit scary

and i thought

but

eight of us

ventured in

and

read a story

memorized details

then used

codes that we had to translate and crack

 black lights

a laser

a microscope

a tangram puzzle

a piñata head

hidden and found things

boxes

math

logic

wild guesses

opinions

ideas

sweat

spiders

stars

moons 

crystals

locks

a lot of darkness

and a little bit of wit

we had one hour and made it through two rooms

never got into the third

but

what an adventure

and

eight of us ventured back out.
