My dear next door neighbor, a great human being who works hard, and plays hard, just insisted on organizing my Girls’ Night Out.
I was planning to just meet people at the city music festival that evening, and see where it goes from there. No, no, she says, I will organize it – send me the contact info for all your girlfriends who are coming into town. This is a sweet, generous girl, who showed up at my door with a bottle of wine the day I moved in.
Problem? Well, I think I mentioned that she plays hard. She is a loud drunk. She is a rowdy drunk. I’m a mild-mannered nerdy professor type who would rather get walked on than have an altercation. She once got us thrown out of a bar for starting a fight. I nearly died from shame (but I did think it was funny).
This could get interesting.

As a fellow mild-mannered nerdy professor type…if you are legit worried that she will misgauge your tolerance for “playing hard” when she plans, I think it’s fair to mention to her the type of evening you’re hoping to have. If you’re not super worried…then just hold on tight and enjoy, I guess. 🙂

Ya, I think if it were me, I’d be excited and pumped for a fun-filled night! But I’d also probably designate one of my more subdued friends to keeping an eye on me….wouldn’t want drunk rowdy girl to get me plastered and convince me to do something ridiculous! 😉

I want your neighbor to be my neighbor! Rowdy friends are the best! Just don’t get arrested 🙂
