in praise of dull parties



Tomorrow is my friend Lisa's birthday.
On my machine she gives me the line up.
It'll be very simple, a meal at a Greek restaurant and maybe some party games.

Her guest list includes the following:
1. her live-in boyfriend,
2. her flamboyantly gay ex husband,
3. her non-live in boyfriend (impotent and of possible Nazi ancestry),
4. her ex-boyfriend who is straight.
5. her ex-boyfriend's girlfriend,
6. her ex-boyfriend from high school who is a priest (and possible pedophile, but amazingly a completely different one from the one mentioned below.
I know, huh?)
7. a former coworker who may...even more amazingly... be the most bizarre of them all (but that's a story for another time, like after a few drinks)
8. me

The last time she entertained was...ummm...interesting.
I'm hoping for a dull party.

Considering the guest lineup, I would ask if "party games" is some euphemism for "orgy", but I read the post about the suicidal, half naked priest and decided I don't want to know.


Have a lovely time.

Well, this sounds like most of my parties. As I've paraphrased to be appropriate to my life, "I have always depended on the kindness of ex-boyfriends." They tend to show kindness only after we break up.

Well no follow up post...yet...so I trust there were no suicides or late night movie features or games or missing underwear or nervously petting strange cats involved?

This is the sort of thing that I would avoid at all costs. But then, I live on another planet.
