A Power Hour in South Africa

This post is LONG overdue, since it happened a couple of months ago, but that won’t make it any less special. After being in South Africa for a couple of weeks and making BFFs with Tfaith’s Cape Town posse, we both realized that none of them had ever played Power Hour before. As blasphemous as that was, we decided that we had to pick a special night to de-virginize them to the drinking game.

We picked the night of a BBQ. We were celebrating Zezia’s birthday that night and Tfaith figured it would be the perfect night to show Cape Town how to do Power Hour.

It. Was. So. Epic.

The first mistake we made was thinking we were all still 20 years old. So we went out for drinks before the party.

That night, before anything, consisted of a lot of good food. Seriously, I still remember this food. It was so delicious that we overstuffed ourselves, which is not a smart thing to do before power hour.

The birthday girl was excited.

Tfaith was ready.

Things unraveled pretty quickly though.
FYI…Do not substitute wine for beer in power hour unless you want to time travel.

As one of us learned very quickly.

But we powered on.
I remember getting to 60 shots and thinking “I can totally keep going” back in the day.
Actually Katherine, Aaron and I easily made it to 100.
It was way different this time.
We no longer had those college livers.

Sang some songs. I totally forgot what we were singing here, but I am almost positive it was Total Eclipse of the Heart.

The following pictures are what Tfaith and I do when drunk.
Dance to The Neverending Story Theme song.
No Joke:

Cornel decided she needed in on some dancing action.

Not everyone was able to dance though.
(Btw, with the dance pics and how he has his shirt, I am surprised Tfaith is engaged).

Then I remember taking a cab home.
And waking up thinking
“Holy Crap…I just played power hour…in AFRICA”

I miss traveling.
