I drank a lot, and I ate very little. In fact, I probably ate TOO little, and I for SURE drank too much.
When it was time to be in a meeting, I was on. I was poised and professional. I contributed to the conversation without being overbearing.
After each day of meetings.... well, not so much.
The first night I was ok. I enjoyed several beverages but didn't go overboard.
|In bed by a decent hour|
The second night was a little worse. My team went bowling, and I am a terrible bowler. I drank several beers, hoping that I would get a little better. I didn't. But I was still able to maintain, and I didn't drink at dinner and only had one cocktail afterwards, so I was still ok.
The third night.... wow.
It was the roaring 20's costume party, and I was wearing a dress out of my comfort zone, along with two girls much younger, thinner, and prettier than I am. I needed some liquid courage.
It is a little comfort that several people went out AFTER the party and they did a few things that I KNOW I didn't do. I've also looked through several photos and I don't see anything incriminating.
