There are a few things in life I want to be successful at. Being a good mom, my career, being a solid friend, a responsible person, and reliable...just to name a few. However, this morning, I realized there is something in life I don't want to do.
How do you feel about people in their late 40's reserving an entire day for bar hopping? I feel like I'm being an arse about this, but I find it slightly disturbing. No, I don't think an almost 50-something should stop living their life, but I don't think an almost 50-something should be spending a large amount of their weekend getting wasted.
Those of you who know me in real life know that I like to be the first one to a party and the last one to leave (most of the time at least...). Yes, I'm down for a good time and I highly enjoy socializing with friends. I just don't see this behavior as being an acceptable role model for your kids or your grandkids. Setting aside an entire day or night so you can go out to the bars is something a 20-something does...
Am I the only one on this bandwagon?
Are your parents setting aside weeknights or weekend days to pub crawl, making it a point to stop at every bar along highway 12?
I almost hoping nobody is dealing with my perplexing issue...but at the same time I kind of hope someone is, so I don't feel completely alone or isolated on this topic!
