Party Pooper

10 28 13 Bearman Cartoons Party PooperSo what age is it that you can’t wait to leave your own party because you are tired.  We hosted a party this weekend.  I can remember in my 20’s when we didn’t even go out to the bars until 10PM.  Now 10PM is the time we are coming home.   I don’t know how many more years I have before I dye my hair blue and am eating dinner at 5PM (with a coupon).

In my 20’s I could go to bed with a dirty place after a party and deal with it in the morning.  Now in your 30’s/40’s, somehow you get all responsible and feel the need to spend an hour cleaning up before you go to bed so you don’t have to deal with it in the morning.

    I recall being young and , as you mentioned, going out at 10pm, or ll, or midnight. Now I struggle to stay awake past 9pm. I never thought I’d seek shuteye before Letterman went off air for the night. And the funny thing is, I don’t mind it one bit. 😀

    I used to take all-nighters and go to work the next morning. Then I’d do it again, Now, when I sleep less than enough one night, it ruins the next week…

    In my 20’s entertainment was going out till 2am, going to Denny’s for coffee and breakfast afterwards, go to work at 8am and get home and ready to do it all again, Now in my 40’s My Entertainment is sipping wine and reading Beartoons and Addanac City at home

    Party? I don’t even know what that is. Why would you want a bunch of messy people in your place?

    I am at the age when someone says lets get together and celebrate I say “Fine, let’s do lunch.” I told someone the other day that I go to bed right after the news. They said, “Lots of people do that.” My reply was, “The 6 o’clock news.”

  7. Comedy Plus says:

    Oh this is spot on. Spot on. I so remember staying up all night and then working all day then doing it again. Not anymore.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  8. It all depends on the party. I’ve hosted or attended (usually obligatory) events where I wished everyone would leave (or wished I could leave without being rude) after an hour, as soon as the main food was over because people were annoying or boring me. OTOH I’ve hosted or been to events (typically involving good music and dancing) where I’m like what 12:00 already hey I’m just getting started. And I’m mega-old. It’s them leafy greens.

    • True, but do you feel the need to clean up that night after everyone leaves or do you still wait until the next day. I feel a need to clean up so I wake up to a clean house

  9. Gruhn says:

    Great observation as always!

  10. Asa man in the tail in of my thirties, I can but agree.

  11. Tim Green says:

    Ugh…the thought of throwing a party now days makes me wanna throw up!

  12. Andro says:

    I like to party all night long and who cares about the cleaning up, well I can easily sort that out after the party has finished, well the next day then but what a brilliant cartoon you have offered us Bearmanm 🙂 I guess it is a preference but I say let the party develop no matter how long it goes on for 🙂

  13. Bill Murphy says:

    What can I say?
    I like to sleep! 😀

  14. lisleman says:

    Partying in my 60’s will consist of visiting this blog.

  15. David Hurley says:

    We don’t discuss parties at my house 😉 I should learn from Hunter S Thompson.

  16. Deb says:

    I’m getting so old I have to go to bed before the parties start!…lol

    Cool comic, Bearman!

  17. Jason Salas says:

    It’s a survival mechanism to not party all the time, party all the time, party all the time. If we did, we’d start looking old and haggard. Besides, I like early morning coffee conversations with people who want to change the world for the better.

  18. Julian says:

    Oh man, this is so true! We even have to clean before the party, as well as after.

  19. Tom Falco says:

    You’re pooped already in your 30s? i would think maybe 50s.

  20. Joseph says:

    Same with me, Bearman. I used to party hard all night long from about 18 years old until about 28. That’s ten years of putting my mind and body through party heaven and hell. Now, I love to go to bed early and wake up even earlier so that I can have a cup of coffee in complete silent bliss, drawing, reading, creating.

    As for parties at home. I don’t like them one bit. But I’m always willing to go to other people’s houses to party for a bit and then head home. Hate to eat and run, but…. :OP

  21. frigginloon says:

    OK, I must admit I am a night owl so I can last up to about 3am before the crash and burn. I am evey midlle age party nightmare. …. I just won’t leave ….bhwahahahahahahahahahaah

  22. Mark Stokes says:

    From party hard to party hardly…

  23. Tony McGurk says:

    I can barely even remember the last time I got drunk. I was 32, that was 21 years ago. I now rarely drink any more than 2 light beers at a time. I don’t mean I drink 2 at once but 2 max in one period. Nothing crazier than a 2 beer bender!!! Now my most outrageous act is to shave the dog…

  24. Dave says:

    If I can help it I don’t have parties at my house. If I invite somebody over and they are still there at 10pm, I keep screaming in my head, “Why won’t you just leave!?”

    I’m in my 30’s.

  25. Never really been a drinker… I was pretty damn boring in my twenties. I still stay up crazy late though!

  26. What about your 40’s? lol
    No, forget it. I said nothing.

  27. In my 20’s: “Heck, yeah, I’ll join your four-hour expedition at the last minute! Let me grab my coat.”

    In my 30’s: “It’s 90 minutes away? Awww, man….”

  28. DadaHyena says:

    It’s actually easier throwing a party when everyone is in their 30’s; most folks never show up due to prior engagements (or some such rot).

  29. Christina says:

    Don’t worry. In your 40s everyone is gone by 10 pm because they want to get to bed themselves.

  30. Nate Fakes says:

    Hate to say it, but a lot of times I’m this 30 year old guy as illustrated. Geesh….I used to be the opposite. I’m old.

  31. Andro says:

    I’m in my fifties and still enjoy a good party, an all night party is even better as one can post all the appropriate jobs in the morning, well it’s either that or the nymphos going without any breakfast 🙁 lol
