December 31, 1999.
In a phase I like to call “anorexic chic”, I was ready to spend the most important night of the millennium with my bestie. Dressed to the nines, I made a very important decision the week earlier…
I was on again/off again with an ex-boyfriend. Having suffered a university heartbreak from a high school boyfriend, I couldn’t believe that he was not destined to be in my life. So when he called a week before New Year’s and asked what I was doing on the most special New Year’s ever, I faltered. Of course I wanted to spend it with him. Of course I wanted to run to his side.
But, my best friend wanted to attend the New Year’s Eve celebration at the Regal Constellation, one of the hipper hotels in Toronto at the time. And with only a few days left to grab tickets, I had to make a decision: do I blow her off for my first true love, or do I stay strong and move forward?
I finally decided that I wanted to start the new millennium with a clean slate. Because I couldn’t be certain about the future with the ex, but I could say yes to the girl who had nursed me through the heartache.
And we partied because it was 1999.
