Things not to do at a Christmas party

We just got back from what must have been the most boring Christmas party I have ever attended at this local restaurant. This was Devina’s second Christmas party in as many weeks and the first one at this restaurant was very cool and we definitely had a blast. I think we all spent about 3 and a half hours there before we realized what time it was and had to leave to get ready for work the next day.

Tonight, after the first hour we were both dying to leave. I think it was because there was an overabundance of older stuffy white people there. Actually, Devina and I were the only non whities there now that I think about it… When her boss came by and chatted with us however, it got pretty cool because her boss totally rocks. Unfortunately, there must have been some dairy in one of my dishes (or that atrocious salmon I had was undercooked) so I had to retreat back home hastily and ride out the stomach pains while watching Judge Mathis.

Here’s a bit of advice for anyone attending any Christmas parties this or any year in the future though…

Bringing up the death of your significant other in the middle of what is supposed to be a somewhat festive occasion is not cool. Continually bringing up the said death to make your story sound better than someone else’s makes you look REAL desperate for attention.

You’d figure people have some common sense in social matters eh?
