To put it lightly, being 27, single and attending an event where the ages range from 12 to 75 is rather challenging. So, to put you all at ease, and to let you know how it all went down, I encourage you to read this brief and to the point passage. 1-I had a great time First and foremost, my dear friend and her husband threw a lovely affair and I really felt like a valued guest and not just another number on an RSVP card .2- Dancing with teenagers is fun but not as fun as dancing with slightly intoxicated adults.
3- I had more fun with the give-aways as an adult than I think I ever did as a teenager back in my day of Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. My collecting of random hats and glasses was all for the benefit of my students, in particular my drama students!
However, there was a moment, at the beginning of the evening before all the dancing and carelessness began where I simply felt awkward and alone. Sure, I made my own fun as I tend to do and do quite well, but it would have been nice to be arm in arm with a handsome fella and sip a drink with him as we waited for the party to really get started.
Alas, I certainly had a great time, danced my tootsies off, earned myself a deserved pair of flip flops to relieve my aching feet (Lord knows those shoes although sexy, NOT PRACTICAL), sipped some… alright not sipped but you get my drift, chased it with some water and took with me the memories of a beautiful evening in honour of two wonderful kids I absolutely love and adore. So, at the end of the day, it was not traumatic, not the most ideal of circumstances, but certainly far from disappointing. Until next time, keep fit and have fun.
