So my oldest son decided at the last minute that he wanted to go to a Halloween party THEREFORE I had to opt out of going to the (adults only) Glowfest and take him to my aunt and uncle’s Halloween party in Castro Valley.
A good mixture of family and friends showed up and everyone was in costume except my son who got shamed into putting on a cape and mask to join in the festivities.
There were drinks galore and I found myself passing out Jello shots halfway through the night.
One for a party guest, one for me.
Boy, did that hit me fast!
I drank Bloody Marys all night long then switched to mudslides.
Eventually, my liver gave out and I had to tap out long enough to take a little snooze on the couch.
The grief I got!!!
My baby brother Art (the great bearded fellow) gave me tons of shit for taking a break.
In about a half an hour I was up and ready to go again.
I even took a shot for Kaitlin (the lion) who was quite loopy at the time.
In the morning she and my cousin Jennifer (Little Red Riding Hood) admitted that they maybe got a little sick the night before.
As Jennifer put it, they can still party like rockstars but they can’t recover like one.
Here’s some photos from the event. Photo credit Xondra Zezza.
