Notes for the future

The corporate Christmas middle school party

I am writing it here as a mental note to remind me before the next party.
I have never liked company parties; I have always found them somewhat hypocritical.

I still remember the first Christmas party with terror,...

One morning, I woke up

I thought about it a little before writing about it, and I decided now, after checking that everything was okay, because I hope it’s useful to someone else.
