A Holiday Party

Last night I went to a holiday party in Huntington Beach.

Oh, how I wish I had my camera so all of you could have been there with me, at least in part.  

Life is funny sometimes.  One thing leads to another, and life becomes a journey with many twists and turns along the way.

The party was held at Dr. Nichter's beautiful, stunning, home.  Who would have thought, I'd ever end up at this man's residence?

Dr. Nichter was hosting the party to thank all of the people involved in supporting the Plasticos Foundation.  He feels grateful for the posts I've written on the organization.  He called to thank me … and to invite me to his party also.

Briefcase and I decided to go.

His house is gorgeous.  

It sits right on Huntington Harbor … his back patio overlooks sand and water.  The patio was lit up with holiday lights.  Palms waved in the breeze.  

I can't even express how charming it was.  It was magical.

The Huntington Beach Boat Parade was taking place.  We watched the boats go by, all lit up with holiday lights.  They were delightful to watch.  Some of the boats were elegant and some made me laugh out loud with the silliness of their decorations.

I didn't know many of the guests upon my arrival.  I'm shy.  Going to a party filled with people I don't know is a situation I would normally avoid.  Instead I found myself conversing with warm, engaging, people.  Everyone had stories of Plasticos trips they'd taken overseas.  

It made for fascinating conversation.  

Of course, I had to prove (as always) that you really can't take me anywhere.  At one point, I was deep in discussion with a very handsome doctor from Napa.  He's a plastic surgeon and he's been involved with many of the Plasticos trips.  I was inquiring as to what types of plastic surgery are popular in Napa vs. Orange County.

(Answer:  tummy tucks.  Also, pretty much all the same surgeries as in The OC, but people there aren't as open about the fact that they're having cosmetic surgery as they are here.)

After chatting with him for quite some time, he mentioned having read about my bionic nipples.

Yes! He! Did!

I might have blushed profusely.  Do you think when we were first introduced he was thinking to himself, "Ahhh … the bionic nipple woman!?"

A woman standing nearby heard what he said to me.  She then turned to me and asked, "You have bionic nipples?"

The conversation went straight downhill from there.

Who says I can't liven up a party?

    I was fully expecting to hear about skinny-dipping in the pool too, but you did me proud with the bionic-nipple situation.

    well, if you ask me… in a room full of plastic surgeons consuming alcohol, it is only a matter of time before the conversation turns to nipples!

    You see – that’s one of the many reasons I love you. I have SO much experience with the whole “open mouth, insert foot” thing, that it’s comforting to know I’m not alone.

    I perked right up at the word nipple. What a stand up group of partygoers. This post made me sit right up erect in my chair. The kind of group I wouldn’t mind brushing up against. Did they serve any delicious morsel sized treats? These plasticos people sure know how to attract attention. Wait, sorry, just a sec, I have to go adjust the dials on my radio. Seriously, Suzanne, I’m so glad you are publicizing the Platicos agenda. True givers, not takers. What if everybody thought this way? We all can’t be talented surgeons, but, we all can find a way to help others who are not as lucky as ourselves. I believe that how we behave while still in the inescapable clutches of mortality, will define us when we do, finally, escape it’s grasp. It’s an opportunity we all have to “define yourself.” steve
