…yes, pun was intended for the title of this post… “sober doper” as opposed to “super duper” hehe.
So, started planning our annual Halloween shindig. This is something I’ve been doing for about 5ish years now. Started just before I moved in with my mom, and then carried on the fun tradition with Gen in 2013. Ah, the memories! It’s always been a good time. Costumes, games, good food, great company. What are this year’s plans? Pretty much the same, but with an added special thing… it will, wait for it… a SOBER party. Who knew that was a thing? Well, I definitely didn’t. But, then, a few weeks back while hanging out with a friend, I was informed about this new trend out there… a dry/sober party.
For so very long, I always felt like the odd one out when everyone around me wanted to get really drunk and go to roudy parties. Little did I know, that one day in the future, this not-drinking thing would be, well… a thing. I still wasn’t convinced, I mean it just sounded too good to be true. So, I hit the internet and looked around. I found proof! There’s fun stuff out there like “sober is the new drunk” and new ideas like “juice crawls” to replace pub crawls. It looks like people are now wanting to stay sober and be able to remember their fun times… oh and avoid hangovers of course. Maybe, just maybe gone are the days when saying things like “I was so wasted” or “I got totally trashed” was considered cool? Maybe now people will start stories with “I remember last night so clearly!” 🙂
Do you plan on testing out this new ‘sobering’ trend?
