Party #6 (Somewhere in Glen Park)
Original Partygoers transcript from the archives:
John: This was a real turning point for us – we were pretty low after the previous three parties.
Will: Definitely our first great experience.
Steve: And it was our first time out of the neighborhood – we took that rainy night cab ride out to Bernal Heights.
Will: Was it Bernal Heights?
John: Glen Park.
Steve: Oh, yeah.
John: We actually had to stand up in front of everybody and introduce ourselves in some sort of creative fashion.
Steve: Lesser men would have crumbled in this situation.
Will: Justin was with us on this one. He gave that fiery speech that had everybody cheering.
Steve: He was a partygoing natural, except for his crippling fear of actually entering parties.
John: I remember it was rainy out and Will slipped down that entire flight of stairs in the backyard and fell into a lemon tree.
Will: Which hurt, by the way. I deserved a Purple Heart or something.
Steve: And then there was the incident on the cab ride home.
John: I think that driver is still looking for Will.
Will: No comment.
