That was fun. And we are now the proud owners of a refrigerator FULL of beer and wine. That is because our friends are polite people who ignore us when we tell them that they don’t need to bring anything to the party, and who know that we really like wine. But jesus, the town is going to be demanding that we apply for a liquor license soon.
(Seriously – FULL of alcohol. There is beer in the crisper drawers! The fridge in the bar downstairs is FULL FULL FULL. The wine rack is full, and there is still an entire shelf of the fridge dedicated to wine. It’s really a shame that we had this party after Halloween, because otherwise? those kids would have been getting a different kind of treat. Hello, what a pretty mermaid you are! And look at your little brother dressed up as Spiderman. Ok, kiddies, who wants a Bud Light? How about a nice merlot? Happy Halloween!)
The party was awesome and I think everyone had fun after they all got over the whole segregated groups of friends must not mingle awkwardness. The clean-up the next day was pretty easy which I was grateful for as I had spent all day Saturday with a bottle of Pledge in one hand and a scrub brush in the other, looking feverishly for dirt and eradicating it from my home.
So all in all, the party was a success and it validated that we are good party hosts and damnit, people like us. I’d say that all of my stress was for nothing, but that would be a lie as I never believe that stress is for nothing. It’s becauseI stressed that everything went ok, and you will not convince me otherwise. Such is the mantra of a die-hard worrywart.
Now all I have to worry about is what the hell I’m going to do with all that beer??!!
