Remember that ear infection I told you about on Monday?
You know what’s REALLY good for ear infections?
Rest. Sleep, in particular, but any kind of rest is probably a good thing.
You know what’s not resting?
Forcing myself to go into work because I’m going nuts watching marathons of Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo.
And then refusing to go home after work because there are just too. many. things. going on.
There are things like free summer concerts in Millennium Park:
It was sassy music.
And then there are BC alumni happy hours at Citizen to attend.
I had to go. I’m a proud alum. I wouldn’t let my fellow Eagles down.
Should I have just gone straight home and reapplied a warm compress to my ear?
But to be fair, I did go home right afterward, skipping the other fun event I had been invited to last night which would have kept me out until 11:30, made a healthy dinner and was in bed before 10 pm.
So really, I canceled out the 2 beers I drank.
And must I remind you all of what happens for the other 9 months that it’s not summer in Chicago?
I will be taking advantage of every invitation that I possibly can while there’s still warm weather to be had, empty wallet and droopy eyelids be damned.
Sooo…anyone want to go to happy hour tonight?
