yes, sometimes we have to miss bomb-ass parties in order to recover from illness. in the grand scheme of things, though, parties for very similar occasions will come around again. the friend will have another birthday, the dj will come back to town. there are always one-time events, like weddings and graduations and such, but if one is close to the people involved, another celebration can be rescheduled with just those people. who doesn't like an excuse to have another party ?
tune in tomorrow.
