Problem; what the heck am I going to wear Saturday? It’s still winter meaning that it will be cold outside of the pub so nothing too revealing, but if I want to show off my newly sized boobs (bra shopping when you are an "odd" size is extremely taxing) I need to think low... A maxi dress with a plunge neckline might be a little formal even though I love the dress. A little black and grey that cuts off above the knee is boring. My floral layered cake is well known at the pub. Argh! I don’t know what to wear. Inside the pub it will be heated so if I have long sleeves on I will have those inconvenient sweat marks, but if I take a jacket then it is something else I need to hang onto for the entire night. Outside will be freezing so I need a coat+jumper+jeans+thermals+socks+beanie+mittens = warm April.
I prefer to go on a pub crawl during summer. Bring on the mosquitoes and sweaty palms.
Then there is the problem of one of our merry group members wanting to go to the Big Town when my cousin and I want to stay in our Small Town. Catch the train down to as far as we can go, dance at some random club (they have clubs as well as pubs in Big Town), hope to God none of us go missing and then either crash at one of my cousin’s friend’s houses before making our way home via train or car, or skip the nap and try and get home on the train (the mythical train that no longer goes all the way into the middle of Big Town so we would have to find out where it ends and how much further until our destination and vice versa for the return). I want to go to one of our local pubs. Then I know I can party until closing time because it will only be a short trip to my cousin’s sofa or a little bit of a longer journey to my own bed. Plus I have never had a very good time in Big Town. People go missing, others are taken advantage of on the dance floor, there is a lot of disagreement of which club to go to and then there is that vibe; it feels unwelcoming especially to us from the Small Town. I don’t like it.
Wow, I have forgotten how much is involved in planning a night out; drinks, location, clothes, sleeping arrangements, safety, travel and manipulating the other pub revellers to stay in one town.
I think I might wear my shorts, singlet and an open long sleeve check shirt... second thought, no. I have no idea.
