I trust everyone had an enjoyable or at least quiet New Years. I slept through it which was fine with me actually.
Friday night however was a different story. A friend of my boss's whom I've become friendly with called to ask me out for a drink to hang out a bit. I wasn't doing anything so I agreed to go.
When I arrived at the restaurant's bar I noticed that Dee was sitting next to some random dude. I didn't think anything of it and proceeded to greet her and take my seat.
All through out the evening random dude kept annoying the hell out of Dee. To know Dee is to know that she is VERY outspoken and pretty aggressive. She and this dude kept arguing back and forth. It was actually pretty hilarious. He'd tell her to chill out and she'd tell him to stop saying that. He'd touch her shoulder and she'd tell him to not touch her.
After about 45 minutes of this I simply turned to Dee and said, "You guys should get married." In her most disgusted voice possible she said "Hell no!"
After another 30 minutes of this it was pretty obvious random dude was totally drunk. He proceeds to leave the bar. According to Pat the bartender random dude only lives a few feet from the restaurant so he's fine.
After he leaves Dee and I sit there for a few more minutes then decide to go elsewhere for the evening so as we are driving up the street we notice random dude walking in the opposite direction of where Pat said he lived and in the middle of the street just flailing his arms about like some lunatic. I looked at him and said "What the hell?" Dude was gone. Dee got on her phone to call Pat to tell him what we saw and his response was that "..he'll be just fine. I'll call his mother." I was like 'cool'. Apparently you shouldn't drink and walk either.
Just as a side note, Pat made me the best Apple Caramel Martini I have ever had in my life and I think I want to have his children.
