and his parents for a bite at Denny's. We ate light because we anticipated the big buffet at the party. Chicken, lasagna, potatoes, carrots, salad and pastries. The food was pretty fuckin' good if you ask me! :P They served wine and spirits but I chose to stay sober this time around.
I'm not used to huge gatherings with masses of people I've never met. That may sound odd, since I attend furcons at least twice a year. Yet at one point I got overwhelmed and tried to keep my composure, feeling bad I might spoil the party.
totally understood this, so his dad drove me back; we swapped military stories there. I would've stayed longer, but I had to listen to my body. My heel and spine were starting to discomfort me again; I also had to take 2 Advil to numb the pain of a raw tooth (1 of 3) I still need to have extracted.
Now that I'm back in my solitude, I can fairly say it was an awesome day.
