On the popular networking website, Facebook, I recently became a member of a group called “My Friends Are Getting Married. I’m Just Getting Drunk.”
Not even two years out of college and just shy of 24, I have SEVEN weddings to attend between the months of May and October this year. Six of them are for my 23-24 year old friends and one of them is for an older cousin. Judging by what seems to be the new standard, she’s an ancient old maid, pushing 27.
My new favorite Facebook group has 108,685 members who like me, would rather walk to the bar than take a stroll down the aisle. While I’m all about living a long life full of love and marital bliss, I firmly believe that you can never be “old and wise” if you were never “young and stupid.”
Even though I’ll be flat broke, I like to look on the bright side. I’m only in three of them, I’ll have seven nights of open bar and I can give my friends cool gifts from KegWorks. I feel that the fact that most of my soon-to-be-wed pals would prefer the N-Ice Rack Beer Pong Accessory to a really nice blender speaks for itself.
Care to discuss how crazy they are? I’ll be at the bar with the 50¢ drafts. See you there!
