Thank heavens for Upper Respiratory Infections.

I feel as if I am about to die (or come down with pneumonia), but I escaped an invitation to a seated dinner for 100 at a business associate's house.

There would have been exactly three dems there. Now, just two (GF and another lady).

These people are all well-to-do, successful and educated folks. But they talk Faux, non-stop.

I have been asked to leave almost every one of these events I have attended, but they keep inviting me because of GF's status in the community. I suppose that I am a necessary evil and the token long-haired musician.

1. Better for you to stay home and rest.

Take care of yourself and you'll get through this faster without the stress of going to a party you dread.

3. They can seat 100 people in their home?

"Well-to-do" doesn't begin to describe that kind of ostentatious wealth.

How large is their "banquet hall"?

10. Actually, it's a barn

But a really cool barn, full of all kinds of vintage machines.

And, yeah, the barn will be full of 1%'s..

6. I'd stay home even if I WASN'T sick!

I can't take that kind of shit. Why put yourself through it? I'm surrounded by fundamentalist, republican assholes where I live, so I just limit myself to a small (very small!) circle of like-minded friends!

7. Hope you feel better for Christmas and don't miss any parties or celebrations.

Actually it's too bad you couldn't go and breath in all those ReThug faces and get them all sick.

8. Hope That You Get Well Soon

 

My wife and I both have had some kind of really bad URI this year that landed the both of us in the hospital with pneumonia. It took us over 3 months to completely recover. Do not wait.....see a doctor and get some powerful antibiotics before it gets a chance to knock you for a serious loop.

I am also the black sheep at parties and functions as I cannot just sit idly by and listen to all of the lies and distortions that baggers like to shout at the top of their lungs. I wear my "O" lapel pin to every such occasion.

Keep fighting the good fight, and have the Happiest of Holidays!
