Sober at a reception? Who would have thought?
SO this weekend was strange. Some good; some bad. My boyfriend was officiating at a wedding ceremony and I was invited as a guest of the reverend. The wedding was between a "normie" and a member of the program. The rehearsal dinner was at a brewery.
I was apprehensive in the beginning, but the food on Friday evening was so good I quickly forgot about the beer-tasting that accompanied each course. I think I handled myself well (as did all of the guests) and I had an enjoyable evening chatting. with the groom's brother and his wife, who were from Santa Barbara.
