Saturday night, a few of my girlfriends and I went out for a little R & R, and a lot of alcohol! We started out at a local place called Mad Anthony’s. It’s a new brewery in downtown Elkhart, but please don’t interpret “downtown” to mean that it’s a bustling hot spot complete with major businesses and skyscrapers…that would be a huge exaggeration…no offense Elkhart.
Regardless, Mad Anthony’s was a fun place to start. They had great beer and tons of vegetarian food on the menu, which in a smaller city is a gem of a find! After Anthony’s we headed to Dino’s to crash a birthday party for a friend of a friend. I ran into another friend there, and was immediately challenged to a Karaoke duet! Please note, I have never Karaoked before, but have always wanted to despite my inability to hit the right notes! The thing is, I LOVE being the center of attention…I bet you didn’t know that about me did you?
So partnering with my chum Amanda, who can sing, was a great compromise for me!! She had previously chosen to sing “You Learn”, by Alanis Morrissette…which as it happens is one of many Alanis songs that I have always loved. So we sang. And to be honest, I have no idea if we sucked! 1. I was drunk—SURPRISE!! and 2. I honestly could not hear myself singing!! I’d like to think that I hit all the notes and that my musical timing was brilliant, but I know better!
Much fun was had!! And I continued to have fun until about 4 in the morning…I had been in bed since about 1:30am or so, and when I woke up, I knew I was in trouble. TOO MUCH BOOZE!!! I knew the hangover that would ensue would be a BAD one. And I was right. Puking, chills, pounding headache, more puking…my whole body ached! And it was all my fault! My entire Sunday was spent nursing a treachorous hangover. I am too fucking old for this!
