There’s no great way to start writing this post without giving a huge shout out and thank you to my bro-in-law for being my friend in a high place. Thanks, Dave (with my sister, below) for bringing me along to the White House Correspondents Dinner Pre-party event (not to be confused with the actual dinner). Next year? 😉
The night started off with me feeling very out of place and awkward – like a teenage kid being brought along to adult parties. It’s not every day I get dressed up in fancy gowns (first time, actually), and I don’t normally hobnob with politicians/reporters/celebrities. Pretty much a complete 180 from my usual crowd: teenagers with fart jokes. The awkwardness eventually gave way once I figured out how to maneuver around with such a long dress and stopped worrying about my bra showing. Getting to see Bradley Cooper helped up the fun factor immensely (as did a martini or two). I also got to molest a cardboard cut out of Conan. My night was complete.
