Drunk people are funny

So here I am again writing a 1 o'clock post. Two days in a row.

I've heard over 10 times in the last few weeks that the night before Thanksgiving was the biggest party night of the year. I don't remember ever really partying hard on this famous night, but I guess I see why. No work in the morning, no family plans before noon or so, no need to be responsible. I could go on, but I think you get the point.

I'm currently with a group of people who are, well let's see, how do I put this in the best politically correct way I can? Well, they're having a good time. There are some clothes switching, some falling over, some cigarette smoking, and a whole heck of a lot of drinking. I have chosen in my life to refrain from getting drunk (not to say I haven't been there a couple times in my life) because I'd rather keep my faculties about me. Know what I mean?

But I do have to say, all ethics and morals aside, drunk people are funny. They fall down, they throw up, they makes fools of themselves, they get embarrassingly honest, need I go on? I know my parents are cringing right now, and some others of you find no pleasure in these types of things at all; but I find it to be really funny a few times a year.

And that's why I'm posting at 1 am again.

I say after a hard day in the kitchen, the men should stay home with the old people and children and all the women should go tie one on. :)

Okay...that was uber stereotypical. But come on, shouldn't there be some reward for spending an entire day cooking food that will be consumed in approximately 20 minutes?

This post made me crack up 'cause I know all too well the life of drunk people and being sloppily drunk myself. That's a thing of the past for me and I know God smiles at that... but I don't regret a minute of it.

Nowadays I might enjoy two or three pints a month, and not for the alcohol but for the sheer taste of it, to enjoy a well-crafted stout that someone put time and effort into... a small pleasure to partake in in this life.

And I never thought about the night before Thanksgiving being a big party night... but reflecting on that now, yeah, it was for me... maybe not always for huge parties but at least a night to gather and enjoy (drink!)
