Nights Out

Monday, January 7, 2008

“Again?” That was my initial reaction when my colleagues told me that there’s another “gimmick”, a.k.a. a night of food, fun and laughter, planned for tonight. Though I want to enjoy their company, I think I’d rather go home, prepare a simple meal for myself, listen to Clive Lythgoe’s Bouquet Collection, and finish reading Tar Baby. Is this a sign of aging? It probably is. Or just plain laziness.

Nights out – they’re fun, all right. But they’re also tiring. And at times, boring. For others, spending the night out with friends is a way of unwinding. How can one unwind with all the noise, I wonder. It bothers the hell out of me. Isn’t retiring early to bed and having a good night’s sleep the best way to unwind?

There are two types of party goers. One who wants to go home and the other who wants to stay, is usually your partner.

I didn't get it. Who again is usually my partner - the one who wants to go home or the one who wants to stay?

I am the one who, most of the time, wants to go home. The one I am with usually thinks the party can't go without her.
