Last night was an enjoyable night. My friend had a great time and was happy that he could finally drink. He is usually the designated driver. It was an early night too, home before 2am. While we were eating dinner Chancho kept texting me to update me on what was going on at work. (which meant he was bored) There really wasn't much going on because it was raining and cold out. However he did find out when the Holiday party was going to be this year. Last year I wasn't able to make it because I was at school when it happened. This year I have no excuse and will be his date. It's on a Wednesday night. I know far enough in advance that I can request off for it and I'll be going. Needless to say, I am a bit nervous. It will be my formal introduction into his precinct. Everyone will be able to put a face to the name now. He says I have nothing to worry about because it's open bar and everyone will be drunk. It also is only 3 hours long. His partners are talking of an after party already. This is him finally merging his personal life with work. He said that he has always wanted to keep the two separate. Which is probably a reason why he doesn't have many civilian friends. I'm trying to be positive about it, I am talking myself into making it a lesser deal than how I really feel. I do have plenty of time before it happens though. I should revisit those feelings when it gets closer.
