fulfilling obligations

Still playing catch-up. A few weeks ago, we had family friends over for dinner. We take turns, and it was our obligation turn to host. Out to the market in the morning, picking up the most amazing live B.C. spotted prawns, among other things.
We shared my (school) news with everyone. No one cared. Not a single fuck given. But it's cool, I wouldn't have cared either. We can smile and act all nice, but at the end of it all, we all need to be selfish to survive here. My first chance to drink some rosé this year, and one of my favourites - the Mas des Bressades Cuvée Tradition from the Costières de Nîmes. Fresh, vibrant, and finely structured.
I got into a fight that night. Actually, not a fight. A spirited argument over parking improperly in our condo's very limited visitor parking lot. I was drunk and aggravated. Who cares if it ended up in a real fight - one would end up in the hospital, the other in jail. I was so drunk, my opponent so cunt-ish, that really, I didn't care. The running theme of the night I suppose. So now that this dinner is all done and over with, maybe it's time to finally consider my own. Two more months to go. Hope everyone's having a great weekend!
