Adults have responsibilities and have to do things like wear pants. Yanno, because deciding whether to lounge around in the knee high socks with the silver cape or the ones with the lime green feet and tattered purple ‘pants’ does not count as adulting for the day. And, in the minds of my neighbors and the law, really doesn’t solve the whole pants problem. Unless I go out and buy blinds and remember to use them. But to do that I would have to put pants on AND make sure my eyebrows are looking fly because… eyebrows. I might be team messy hair, don’t care, but my eyebrows… quit playin’… I don’t care how tardy I am as long as they are done.
I never said I adulted well.
Unless there are drinks involved. A well stocked vodka bar turns even the worst adults into majestic adulting unicorns.
Red, White, and Blue Table Decorations
At first glance, your party will look sleek with its navy high top table, red calla lilies, and matching tea light holders. Only when your guests get close enough to read the clever coasters will they realize you both are cut from the same cloth. And that the only reason you even have coasters is because they are not grown up coasters. And that it’s okay if they don’t have coasters at home because you didn’t have them before this party either.

Red, White, and Blue Party (After Dark)
Unless the vodka is gone.
Once the vodka is gone, it’s time to muskrat the crew because the next day means there is more adulting to conquer and pants to wear. Sorry guys, the party is over.
