I went to a tupperware-like party last Saturday night, only...the products were a little different... more, um, intimate than tupperware, if you know what I mean.
It was a bachelorette party for a much younger co-worker. When I clicked yes on the e-vite a few weeks ago, it didn't really hit me that it was a BACHELORETTE party. In fact, I didn't think about it again until that morning and checked the calendar. That's when I got a little nervous - I hadn't been to a bachelorette party in a couple of decades - probably mine - and I've seen these girls in action at the Christmas parties. But it was too late to back out. If it got too wild for me, I would just slip out early.
In comparison to my imagination, and considering the products and the ages of the other attendees (I think I was even older than the mother of the bride!), it was actually very subdued. I've been to Southern Living parties that were wilder than this. And there was this one Home Interiors party I hosted for my friend Ann years ago where I served a fruit punch with a big kick...
But getting back to this party...it was just a lot of women sitting around talking about husbands and work, sipping drinks, munching on queso, and listening to the spiel of the woman hawking the goods. She had it down - very funny - I could see her doing this in a comedy club.
I remember attending a party similar to this right after I got married twenty-five years ago. All I will say is...modern technology has come a long way!
