Today I went with my partner and two friends to the local beer festival. It was a lot of fun.
First of all, please know that my reality at a beer festival is very different from many. We went early, really early – to avoid the crows and the drunken banter. We tasted many beers – some good, and some not so good. None of us went overboard or got drunk…. in fact, I have never been drunk in my life. (Yes, it is true, and no, I am not as good and innocent as you now think I am).
It is possible to go to a beer festival and have a lot of fun without making a moron of yourself. I was so glad to have this opportunity. I was sad that I did not find a new amazing beer – there were no new beer loves, but it was great to hang out with friends.
Today, 181 days ’til 40, I remind myself I can have a lot of fun and still be responsible.
