“I know,” I said and rolled my eyes. “It’s totally ridiculous.”

“I hope it will be fun.”

“Of course it will be fun.” I peered into the candlelit bar. “We’re here together. We’ll have fun no matter what.”

“Well, if nothing else, it will be interesting,” she mused.

As we waited in line to check in, I spotted a poster announcing the event for the night. “Oh my god, I have to get a picture of this.”

Marlie laughed.

I pulled out my phone and took a quick shot.

It came out a little dark, you could barely make out the images of the two strapping men flanking the sides, but the wording was clear:

“Welcome to the ‘Fireman Single’s Party!'”
