The Therapeutic Properties of a Cancun Foam Party

 

CGFoamMy wife and I just got back from a wonderful vacation in Cancun, Mexico. We stayed in a beautiful hotel, ate fantastic food, and spent a lot of time doing nothing in the pool. It was great for both of us.  But, one of the best parts for me: The foam party.

I don’t know how, why, or when, but a few years ago I started a running gag with my wife that I was going to take her to a foam party (where you go to a club, they pour untold amounts of soap suds on you, and you try to dance without slipping and falling on your butt, usually while inebriated).  I probably saw one on TV once and it looked like fun — and something I would never get to do.

In high school, I went to 2-3 parties, and never to a Spring Break.  In college, more of the same, perhaps one party in four years. I’ve only ever been really drunk a handful of times in my life, and have little tolerance for alcohol. I am a big guy, but 1.5 beers pretty much does me in.
