So can you guess what I did THIS weekend?
I will be welcoming a new sister-in-law (and lovely one at that) into the family in a few weeks and my old ass got to go out with her 25 year old YOUNG ass for the ritual of The Bachelorette Party. A tame one, I must say, given stories you hear on the streets. No strippers, raunch or stupidity. Just lots of laughter, wine, dinner, lingerie-giving, and some embarrassing phallic drinking straws and anatomically correct confectioneries.
Though I was the oldest one there (by over 15 years to some of the girls) I am proud to say that I stayed up until midnight, drank TWO apple martinis (we wont mention the glasses of wine that weren't kept track of), and held my own in this adult rendition of Pin The Tail On The Donkey:
Ye ole "Stick The Lips On The .... ahem...."
I love how the dude on the poster is all retro.
I didn't win, but was a close second along with my OTHER sister-in-law... the vetran married chick of the group.
Am I too old for this? Probably. But it was fun. Despite the fact that it will take me 72 hours to fully recover from the hangover.
