This past weekend my company threw a New Year Kickoff party for all of the employees. The party was in Norcal and they were generous enough to fly each employee plus a guest up there and even put us up for the night at a fancy luxury hotel. A free flight/hotel room for you and guest and yours truly couldn’t even come up with one person I wanted to invite as my date. So instead, I RSVP sans guest and figure I’d deal with it later knowing full well that I’d probably be in the awkward minority. But, I wasn’t going going to do it quietly. My goal was to make anyone in a committed relationship of any capacity envious of singledom. Or at least in my alternate reality that occurs only in my head.
Being single isn’t a disease. It’s a lifestyle. It’s not a pity party. So, a handful of us in the LA office decided to make a statement by showing up stag. Yeah, uh huh. We got it.
