On Monday, I went to an adult’s birthday party that started at 4 p.m. and ended at 8.1  Getting people tipsy and home by 9 p.m. is the best, most grown up idea ever, and I’ve decided that I never want to see any of you after 10 p.m. ever again!

My 20-something friends likely think I’m incredibly lame for this, and that’s ok. I remember the go home, change clothes, come back out, stand in line, shut the club down, and end with 4th meal nights. They were good times! I’ve just aged out of them. And the time is coming for you too, darling. Just you wait…

I went to dinner with two others on Saturday night, and by 9:30, the two of them had literally reclined at the dinner table.


No judgment. These days, I use my flask to hold espresso shots and cold brew. To turn up or to stay up? That is (no longer) the question.


While we’re on the subject, I’ve also decided that I’m tapping out at “on fleek” (whatever that one means). Go…on…without…me…

  1. Yes, on a Monday evening because in my world very few of us work a 9-to-5 and all of the guests were actors, writers, producers, and/or directors. The birthday girl was an actress-comic-writer whose out-of-town gig was canceled due to inclement weather on the East Coast. It was perfect.

    Ha! Guilty as charged –> one of the two who were leaning HARD at 9:30 p.m. on a Saturday. Know thyself.

    Yeah, leave “on fleek” to the youngsters?
    Wait… Who says “youngsters”?
    Old farts that’s who. Get into it.
