My best friend's birthday is today. There is absolutely no way I can get out of going to her party. It's not that I don't want to be there to celebrate or anything like that, it's that everyone else there is in a "couple" and I am currently single. This happened at Christmas too, it's always so awkward. Prior to the birthday party I have to go to a Bar-Passage Happy Hour for a our new attorney, [ASSociate] is coming. And to top it off I feel like ass. This should be a fun night.
