A Party of One is Still a Party

I’ve definitely been living my best life so far in 2022, from the Jason Bateman weekend of weekends to seeing some of the biggest shows on Broadway. The one thing I hadn’t thought twice about in years has raised some eyebrows from the people around me, though. Could I really be doing these things alone?…
