Planning the Perfect Pity Party


The key to having any perfect party is effective planning. Here are some tips to help your next pity party be a great success.

1. Choose the perfect date – The best day for a pity party is a day that most people will be busy. Then when they don’t show up, you will have an extra reason to be sad.

2. Invite as many people as possible – By inviting lots of people, you will guarantee the party’s failure. Start with the president, and as many politicians as possible, then hit up your entire email address list, and all of your Facebook “friends”. Save the people who might actually show up for last, so the odds of them making other plans are high.

3. Forget about the party  There is nothing better than forgetting about your own party to ensure that at least a few people will be pissed off.

I would write additional tips, but I have a party to forget about.

So, I just woke up with this song in my mind. I rarely dream, but tonight I dreamed of a character in this song. It was sad. Heartbreaking really. Of course dreams don’t usually play by the rules, especially if you are a rebel at heart; so this is not perfectly following the song.

This dream was of a girl, beautiful, athletic, free-spirited. The storyline played out in detail as I watched her enjoying her young life until, as in most lives, an intense, almost unbearable moment happened…in the dream, she caught her boyfriend cheating. She never had flown and as I stepped into third person dream mode, I learned of her escaping her heartbreak on an airplane ride which crashed.

As I immediately woke, not tired after about 4 hours of deep sleep, this song was blaring through my head. Hope you enjoy.
