Did I Just Do That??


Sometimes in life things come up that make us very uncomfortable. Take last weekend for instance. My Ex-wife got remarried in December of last year but they decided to hold off on the reception until May. And they decided to have a Pig Roast, which is actually pretty cool. And I was actually invited. We have a good relationship and her new husband and I get along very well so I wasn’t surprised to get an invite. And my girls really wanted me to come so there was no way of not going. Many of my friends thought I had lost my mind for going and thought it was crazy. And as the weekend got closer, I thought that they may have had a point….am I crazy!? But I knew I had a good friend of ours coming and was going to go with me so that helped. My Mom and a few other members of my family went too so I wasn’t completely isolated. We have been divorced for close to 10 years so I’ve been around most of her family many times, but this time I was going to see people that I haven’t seen for a long time. And I was right! There was probably 200 people there and I saw people I haven’t seen since our divorce. It was actually funny, I would run into people and they had this shocked look on their face. They were just as surprised to see me as I was to see them. And it all worked out. We didn’t stay too long and as we were leaving a few people were asking why we were leaving so soon. I told them that my invitation specifically said only 1 beer or 30 minutes. That got a good laugh and was a good way to end the night.
