The other edition of Blankets & Wine was today, the FOMO that has been pilling and brewing ever since the last edition I had attended was too much.
As a must, I had to make an appearance, I had to turn up & also liter the WhatsApp & Instagram status with my “I’m here” stories of “slayage” as the standard procedure dictates.
At about the same time, I also harboured plans to go for Brunch at Mestil as my friend always does acoustic performances every Sunday. Today on the same day on the same day as Blankets & Wine I felt the urge to go check him out and show my support. That instantly instantly threw me into a frenzy & a dilemma. My mind was panicking but my body donned a calm demeanor and I just took a chill pill.
After little thought, I decided to give up both. A friend invited me to his residence for what turned out to be his house-warming and instantly made up my mind to cancel the two plans that had thrown me into a state of confusion.
This turned out to be a really good idea and made me appreciate just how things can turn out well for you.
At the party I met a number of people, met a number of folks that were strangers but we interacted like we were onto something. We immersed ourselves into all sorts of conversations and had a great time.
I miss such parties, I miss where we came together to have a great time whether we have our own differences in ideologies and shit. At this party, there were all kinds of people; pagans, holy folks, spoilt brats, introverts & extroverts. Folks ditched their phones and spoke, interacted and got to know each other.
There was free will. Those who wanted to drink, drink and those who didn’t, were neither forced. Those that wanted to smoke weed did so at their own peril without any form of a judgmental environment around them. See it was all chills at this party. For a moment, when I tempted to check my phone, I often felt embarrassed as everyone gave me that awkward look.
At this party, there was life, there were positive vibes and I’d cancel any major plans for a party like this anytime anyday!
