After the AT party, do all other prospects look a bit dim in comparison? Some
words of commiseration from a few selected wags:
"The cocktail party
is easily the worst invention since castor oil."
"The fact is, the cocktail
party has much in its favor. Going to one is a good way of indicating that you're
still alive and about, if such is the case, and that you're glad other people
are, without having to spend an entire evening proving it."
Partying is such sweet sorrow.
Living in New York is like
being at some terrible late-night party. You're tired, you've had a headache
since you arrived, but you can't leave because then you'd miss the party.
