Last night we went to Kolby's med school ball - "Casino Royal." I can't remember the last time Kolby and I got dressed up and enjoyed a fancy night out together. To be honest, the school throws these events on a pretty frequent basis, but because we don't drink, we usually toss the flyers put on our sweats, and just stay home and play the "Ticket to Ride" instead. I don't know what made us change our minds, but I'm really glad we did.
I'm not going to lie, polishing up was an all-day affair filled with flash backs of high school prom preparations - you know, finding the right accessories, shoes, skin color, etc. But in the end, the ball was a blast. We danced, visited with friends, and (all in the name of charitable contributions) hit the blackjack, roulette and craps tables. It was a much needed night of fun with my love Kolby. Maybe now we won't be too scared or lazy to venture out to a few more of these parties.
