|Requisite night out dorky selfie|
I've been out one evening here & there to blogging related events, but those things typically don't involve much, if any alcohol, or live music. They're networking events where I get to chat with people & often get to try out new things or hear talks on something. They usually end in two or three hours & I'm home in time to put the baby to bed a bit late.
Friday night I got a real chance to let my hair down & just goof off with friends. A fellow Mount Pleasant Family Centre Board member Caitlyn had invited me to go hear her husband Cam's band. I was tired after a long week, but decided to go out anyway. I left after putting baby to bed, meeting up with another board member, Lisa, & arriving just a few minutes after the band's first set started. We had some lovely local beer & danced most of the evening, which I was surprised that I could do, given how bad my hip has been lately.
A lot of the evening I was comparing my experience to what it was like going to clubs with friends back when I did that a little more regularly, in my 20s. I care a lot less now about what other people think of my dancing, & my appearance. But that feeling of being just a little drunk, of losing yourself for a minute in the flashing lights & blasting music, that's still the same. Well, maybe it's a little sweeter because I get to experience it much less often nowadays.
As we were leaving, Lisa & I decided we needed to make this a regular thing. I'm pretty sure we'll be back to see Cam & co (aka Big Daddy & the Near Death Experience) play again soon.
