Fat, over-processed versions of formerly precious co-eds take high-angled pictures that will one day make it to Facebook as testament to how young and fun they can still be and still are. Multi-layered tinks and clanks of beer bottles in bins and shot glasses in the air, and these 30-year-old bottle blondes squeal when they hear 2 Live Crew or Bon Jovi come on over the sticky dance floor. A reminder of yesteryear. Me? I'll take my summer over easy, like two fried egg yolks running over buttered wheat toast and into well-done hash browns with grilled onions and green peppers.
