An Alarming Similarity

We went to a graduation party on Saturday.

The graduate is the brother of one of Eli 15.11 teammates, and he's taking a gap year to (hopefully) play in the BC. He's shot on Eli during goalie lessons, and he's a terrific kid.

Graduation parties, though, can be pretty awkward. Grandparents, extended family, hockey friends, school friends--it's a unique mashing together of people.

We did play cornhole, though.

We stayed for about an hour and a half. On the way back to the car, I said, "Well, that was a bit awkward, but I'm glad we came."

Eli said, "Me, too."

"There's only one other event I can think of where everyone has to attend," I said. "Graduation parties are just extended funerals with cornhole."
