So as I prepared to head out for the evening, I had this very short conversation with myself.
“OK: are you ready to go out and see someplace new?”
“I’m tired and I hate people.”
Now I realize that I have obligations to my readers. I do take this seriously, however I believe that taking this seriously also means that when I go to a joint, I give it a fair shake. Pubs are social places so I don’t want to go into them hating people. I also would like to make a decent first impression. I’m the new kid! Why go in grumpy? When you are five, people will cut you some slack. When you are forty, it’s just considered a dick move.
Which means that I’m staying home and drinking sake. I’ll have it together next week.
