So I got the call tonight from a good friend asking me to be his best man. My 4th time. My last turn was 12 years ago, and all of us were drinking heavily and doing drugs and it was a crazy time. Now, we are mostly 48-50, mostly sober and definitely no drugs. Being best man can be physically and financially draining. This time I was thinking just the men in the wedding party (five) and some thing(s) different. Female nudity is expected, although who's gonna do a show for 5 guys only?( I guess it doesn't matter, as long as she gets paid.) Maybe a baseball or hockey game included. One friend suggested a night of cards. I don't know.... The hardest part will be weeding through the 99% smart ass remarks, but I am aware of the chances. Thank you. Howard related because he's afraid of bachelor parties.
