Just because you are in your thirties does not mean you can't party like a rock star. It's been a long time since P and I shared a crazy night. One of us is always the driver, which means one of us is always the sober one when we are out with our friends. But when you plan ahead to sleep over at your friend's house, the possibilities are just endless. Well, we ended 2013 and began 2014 in a way that made up for any lame nights we shared over the past year (which includes last New Year's Eve). Two days later and I am still fighting a headache and the occasional wave of nausea. P and I don't really party anymore, but when we do, it's a doozy. New Year's Eve was no exception.
There is no better way to begin a new year than drinking delicious wine with your loved one and friends. That is exactly what we did and it was just perfect.
Of course, when you are chatting and laughing and throwing back the wine and then someone breaks out the whiskey, it is easy to lose track of how much you have had to drink. There were a lot of tipsy people at our little gathering and things took a bit of an unexpected turn. Let's just say the night ended with someone peeing in a litter box. That someone was not me, nor was it the cat.
After the unnamed culprit finished their business, they immediately removed the litter from the box and said, "Well, 2014 can only get better from here." Well played, my friend. Well played.
P.S. - I assure you that this is not at all the typical behavior of my friends. If you are deeply disgusted by this story, I apologize. As another friend pointed out, the situation could have been much worse (like doing #2 in the litter box or peeing behind the couch). Plus, the person did clean the litter box and, let's be honest, no one likes that job (so someone sort of made out on this ordeal). But it goes to show, just when you think those wild and crazy drunken moments are years behind you, someone whips out the unexpected (literally) and surprises you.
P.P.S. - For those who may be put off by this, try to find the silver lining in this post. Rather than judge, just laugh and love. And remember, we can only go up from here.
