Last Night

So, after running yesterday morning, I spent the entire day helping my husband with projects around the house. We worked all day and in the end, we were proud of ourselves for finishing the house and getting it cleaned. Thus, we decided to show the place off and invited a few people over for a couple of celebratory drinks.

Okay, things got out of hand.

By the end of the night, one person was angry over being constantly teased (you say something stupid once in this group and it never dies, so I can understand his frustration), one person was crying, and one person left without his pants on (a little incident with Scope in places where they shouldn't be -- explaining that one is just too hard). My husband made up for being sober on Thursday and had a little too much and is still in bed.

Me? I'm fine: I didn't get angry, I didn't cry, I managed to keep my pants on, and I feel fine this morning. But it has me puzzling over why every time we have people over things escalate like that. It doesn't happen at other people's houses.

Anyhoo, I'm thinking that today will be a well-deserved rest day. Rest from running, rest from chores, rest from work. I'm gonna chill out, read my book, maybe watch a movie.

I was pondering the same question...why do they escalate at your place but at no one elses? I didn't drink too much which was nice when I woke up this morning feeling fine. I am a little tired, I decided to surf the web once we got home.

Sounds like a interesting day. I'm glad you made it through the night well.

if I had to choose between angry, crying and lacking pants, I think I'd opt for the third, at least that would amuse someone. Perhaps you have more available alcohol or your glasses are so large that people drink more...enjoy your reading and the nice, possibly not stormy weather.

ROFLMAO Wendy!!!

Damn, sounds like a par-tay that I'd like to be a fly on the wall for LOL

Relax!!! You deserve it!

It's like a drunken, mostly harmless version of Amityville. I love parties where people's pants come off. It makes for ridiculous photos and explanations.

Sounds like a fun time, even with the crying and missing pants.

An all-around rest day is wonderful. That is what I was hoping for. But, I ended up helping my dad move his things back into his office after some construction, and then ran errands with mom for a couple hours. Way to exhausting!

That is the first time I've ever heard of a party ending (or even beginning) with someone's pants off and it not being fun for everyone.

I was at this one party with my grandmother and there was this guy...oh nevermind, this probably isn't the forum for that. I think my grandmother may read your blog too. (hi granny!)

Where are the pics? Where is the BWI post? LOL. I wouldn't worry about it. Some folks are just like that. They are ALWAYS unpredictable.

I think I want to come to your next party!

Mendy said...

Sounds like a lot of Drama! Can I come next time? LOL. Seriously, I just think you serve more alcohol than anyone else, like Wendy said. It's just that your a great hostess... Yeah, that's it...

Hmm...do you serve better drinks? I really want to hear the pants story!
