To go out? Or not?
This is just something that has been bugging me. In my kitchen, the question: "Are you going out tonight?" is a common one, and when someone answers no, it is automatically assumed that they are in some way unwell, because of course, no one could possibly not want to go out by choice?!?
Okay, so this may be a minor point, but it is something that I have been pondering about. Why is it only considered a 'night out' if it
a) involves vast quantities of alcohol, or
b) lasts until 2am?
I spent a really enjoyable evening just sitting and chatting to a couple of new friends, but because we were tired and came back to the hall at 9.30, it couldn't possibly have been a good night….
Oh well, I'll climb down off my soapbox now.
I'm enjoying this blogging thing, great for letting off steam!
