My work party was last night at a swanky country club one block from the house I stay at when I'm working - and I didn't get to go. The surgeons provided an open bar and hors d'oeuvres. Is it so much to ask to be wined and dined?! I clean up really well:

Jesus fucking Christ. Is it so much to ask to go out for once?! Granted, this was a work party, but come on, free booze.

I don't understand... couldn't you just leave the old stick in the mud behind?

If you don't want to go out alone, I'm sure there are plenty of others who would be willing to step up. Thumbsup

Because going alone is no fun when you're married. It'd be one thing if all my coworkers were married or gay, but with a marriage on the rocks, loads of stress, and some very attractive single male specimens, I don't need to combine alcohol with that environment - I don't want to do something I would regret.

I wanted to dress up, be told I look beautiful, and go dancing barefoot because my fabulous shoes hurt my feet too much to wear all night. But no. I drove home instead of him coming to meet me, and now I have on exercise pants and a sweatshirt while sitting in the dark and the family is sleeping. No way I'm dressing up for just myself.

Ok. I'm done whining.

I can imagine you looking fabulous. Blush
Edit: Whoa, I missed the spoiler, I don't have to imagine anything! You do look fabulous!

Here's the way I see it. If you gave him the option to go and he declined, then that frees you from obligation. Otherwise you're in a situation where he's not going to have fun with you and you're not allowed to have any fun your own which leaves you stuck at home in sweatpants.

If he's OK with you attending an event featuring alcohol and attractive male specimens without him, then whatever happens is on him - you're off the hook.

I don't advocate cheating, but if you have a conversation and explain the situation then it's all above board and he has the opportunity to either step up or step aside.

RE: Ranting corner
If I'm not scheduled to work, I love the snow! Probably because it's so rare. Last winter, my husband, brother and I got lit and walked to my aunt's house (same neighborhood) and used most of the snow of her front yard to make a 6 foot tall snowman. My uncle is homophobic, and we put a rainbow wig and traffic cone on his head, a purple scarf, and carrot for a dick on him and called it Pat. We didn't get enough to go sledding, though. I haven't experienced enough for sledding since I was ten.

Note to self - stir soup up really well after microwaving.

First spoonful seemed perhaps a bit not warm enough. Second spoonful welded my tongue to the roof of my mouth. Sad

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF
