Today was tax day. No one likes tax day. No one wants to give their government their hard-earned money. Especially if they don’t agree with the party in power. Or they think the government is mis-handling their money. It’s not an easy day. I wasn’t thrilled to have to pay taxes when I earned as ridiculously little as I did. But, I also realize that taxation makes the government go round. And honestly, we’d be in this boat regardless of which party was in power.
However, all of the Taxed Enough Already parties that were thrown, started me wondering, what other kinds of parties can we have? Either using tea or some other acronym.
*Disclaimer: I am not actually encouraging anyone to do any of the following. If you do and you get hurt or in trouble, I am not responsible and cannot be held liable.*
Tested Enough Already? Students, are you tired of being tested? Hold a party to revolt. Throw tea on your professor. Throw test pages and ink into the nearest bodies of water. (Doing so while in 18th century garb will definitely earn you more kudo points)
Seen Enough Already? Sick of all the stupid movies in the theater? Hold a protest party. Throw popcorn at the screens. Stand and sing during corny lines. Pretend to be on a sinking ship, I mean, come on, if the movie is that bad, you sort of are.
Practiced Enough Already? Music students, this one is for you. Aren’t you tired of being beaten down by your professors making you practice all the time? Don’t they know you have a life? Don’t they know you have better things to do? Stop practicing now. Decorate your professors’ studios with peas. Frozen/fresh/cooked/raw, it doesn’t matter. The smell and clean up should get at least a day’s worth of students out of lessons. Take those practice guidelines/assignment/report books and throw them into the school fountain.
Tasted Enough Already? Eaten enough at a restaurant to decide you don’t want to pay for the food? Throw it on the ground and storm out. No more paying for mediocre food. Throw it at your server, tell them you are having a TEA party and leave.
Slept Enough Already? Tired of your body demanding that you waste precious hours in sleep? Show yourself who is boss. Throw your pillows into your pool. Quit sleeping. Keep everyone else around you up too. You’ll be a revolutionary…although, revolutionize quickly, you won’t be around for long.
Played Enough Already? Kids, are you tired of your parent’s always telling you to go play? Don’t do it anymore. Do chores instead. Do your homework. Don’t let them tell you to enjoy your childhood. Throw your crayons in the creek. Stand up for yourself and your right to work.
What are some ideas for parties that you have? Do you think any of these will catch on?
