Another New Years Eve

Tonight's the night!
We are going out yet again to an open bar, buffet deal with a DJ and a dance floor. At the time I purchased my tickets (one week ago), there were only 12 people on the guest list. Since then, about 12 of my friends bought tickets.
At first, I thought how dumb this could be with so few people. I picture a DJ up there playing Will Smith's immortal classic, "Gettin' Jiggy wit' It," and not a single person on the dance floor. Just like the 10th grade Snow Ball held in the high school cafeteria. The only ones having any fun were the bad kids who were smart enough to get their girlfriends drunk with hopes of getting some action in the empty bathroom down the hall. And the ninth graders who didn't know any better.
But then I thought about the problems with last year -- long drink lines, overcrowded dance floor, and too many "awesome dudes" with crazy party hats, untucked shirts, and overly loosened ties. I doubt this will be the crowd in Eastlake, Ohio, in a party center that shares space with a HazMat testing company. Rather, I pictures 60-year-olds dancing to the freshest tunes, such as The Loco-Motion and The Electric Slide (Boogie-oogie-oogie-oogie!).
I remember one New Years Eve at Fat Fish Blue (maybe it was Mardi Gras) where Joe's ass was grabbed by some lewd old lady looking for fresh meat, a bunch of middle-agers gave me dirty looks because I was dancing with the hot young girl whom they just bought a drink. I also think of Grandma Lillian playing pool with me and Joe, buying pitchers of beer, and stealing margarita glasses. Or my Uncle Ron peeing in a bar parking lot shouting "HEY YOU MAGGOTS WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT! TAKE A PICTURE IT WILL LAST LONGER MAGGOTS!" So old people can be fun, too, if you turn off "CSI:Sarasota" long enough.
