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.
