After the nuptials were over we headed down the street to the hotel for the reception. It was a great party … dinner, drinks, a DJ, and dancing … lots and lots of dancing. I also saw a ton of people who I haven’t seen in 20 years. I got reacquainted with the girl who took my virginity from me, oh so long ago (thank you for that) … I also saw another girl, (mmm, Yvette), who I had a big crush on, and who I also dated for a bit way back in high school. She looked damn good, and we spent a good part of the afternoon together, dancing and chatting, to the slight dismay of her boyfriend. After the official party ended some of us more hearty types decided to move it upstairs to a hotel room, whereupon much more drinking was done. After a while, the few of us who remained decided to go out dancing at some club in Pasadena where there was this groovy 70’s funk cover band with huge afros playing. I danced some more with the girls, but eventually people grew tired, and everyone went home.
Overall it was one of the best days I’ve had in a really long time. I looked exceptionally sweet in my new suit and pink polka dot tie … people really loved that tie! According to my sister (the bride) all her girlfriends were totally digging me (no wonder they all asked me to dance!) … especially the old girlfriend, so she’s going to put in a good word for me. I’m glad I gave her that present..
