While checking in at the front desk the hushed annoyance and pissed-off stares made it clear I was going to have to prove myself. I felt like the person fumbling with a stack of coupons at the front of a long grocery store line, hated by everyone behind her. A few of Josh's friends already knew me but the rest immediately asked, "Who invited her?" Having breasts at a bachelor party is a bad thing, unless you're the hired help.

I earned more fans when I convinced a bouncer not to throw us all out of a club after Josh's brother peed in the stairwell. Others gained respect for me when they realized I played poker, and well. When Josh's best man was losing money left and right at the casino—and I mean literally since he was so hammered he didn't notice it falling out of his pockets—I picked it up and kept it safe for him until he sobered up.

I wasn't going to lock the door or shriek if someone saw me naked. I was basically living in a locker room for the weekend, and I was one of the players on the team. I didn't make a big deal about throwing on sweats and a tank top and diving into a bed with two passed out dudes, one sweating whiskey, the other sweating gin.
