Drinking to kill the pain

Went out with my boss and some other colleagues to help alleviate our depression over the election. It was nice actually because it was a group I work with all the time, but hardly ever socialize with. We were able to laugh at some stuff, talk about sports and cute guys--which was really funny when I finally said to my boss, a lesbian, "Why am I talking to you about this?" She said, "Hey, I can appreciate the form." So it was a good letting down of the hair all the way around. We're letting go, but we're never going to forget. As my boss said (and I feel weird calling her my boss cause she's really a friend), people don't fully realize how hard the gay and lesbian community is taking this election. Many of them really feel that it was a slap in the face specifically to them. There's a lot of work to do. And maybe the beer makes us feel better for a while, but tomorrow morning, we have to get to work.
