Before midnight, there was a lot of talking and some game playing. There were shots of wine and then shots of rum. That's when I bowed out of the Blackjack game. Eddie's friend had made me my first drink that almost made me pass out. I'd made another of sangria and 7-Up which was more sweet than alcoholic. Everyone was all dressy dressy and it was a great New Year's party. With about thirty people in the house, at mightnight, we sounded like 30000. Then came the dancing, but that did not last very long. The buzz began to fade and the need for sleep came, so Eddie and I headed home to start the new year together.
Without the glasses on, I looked wrecked.
But I wasn't the only one.
