Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned get-together with friends? Personally, I love hosting them. I never have a plan…just food and people…and it works out somehow. Most of the get-together’s I’ve attended have been centered around movies, concerts (on TV), or games. Thank God (and America) for holidays 🙂 So what if most are so-called “created” just for us to consume and waste money. I find them to be little excuses for us to be more physically social (I say “physically social” because we are pretty much virtually social by way of facebook nowadays).
If you’re really into get-togetherness, there’s an opportunity to be physically social 12 times a year! Not sure how to get started? Here are some suggestions:
January – Ring in the New Year formally or casually. Break out that fine China and cocktail attire and put on a class act for the night. Or wear whatever and fry fish.
February – Valentine’s Day. Get super lovey-dovey with one person…or several people, lol. No, not in THAT way…no big love up in here. Since this is “Single Sisters Speak Out”, I’m thinking get together with your single girlfriends and pamper each other. Or ladies, gather up your single male friends and cater to them…vice versa for the men 😉
March – You don’t have to be Irish to get drunk….(little John voice) YEEEAAAAAUUUHHHH! Wear green, break out the booze, get creative with some Lucky Charms, and call everyone by there last name, altered with a “Mc” or an “O’ ” in the front.
April – Praise da Lawd and have a Holy Ghost party. Make sure you wear pastels and perform karaoke to your favorite Gospel songs. End the time with a Holy Ghost praise dance contest.
May – tell stories about the most beautiful and most embarrassing times you’ve had with mama…watch “Mommy Dearest”
June – do “dad stuff” like go fishing, listen to 45’s and watch westerns…or whatever your dad did
July – Cook Out! (no eggs in the potato salad)
August – uhhhh, you must know someone with a bday in August *shrugs*
September – take a load off and shoot the breeze about the crazy ish that goes down at your j-o-b.
October – play a themed dress-up for Halloween – “For the Love of Ray J possibly”? Bob for suggestively shaped fruit
November – get up with friends the day before Turkey Day since we’re all pretty much with the fam that day. swap and try out different recipes…have a sweet potato pie bake-off.
December – wear ugly christmas sweaters and re-gift stuff from your house…sing Christmas songs with over-the-top riffs and ad libs.
I’d like to know some of your most fun get together experiences, whether you attended or hosted.
