Have you ever tried to make plans for an evening on short notice as an adult? Its bloody difficult. It’s a Friday evening and for once I’m free of childcare duties, I have a little bit of disposable income and my health is in reasonable enough shape for me to withstand being sociable. But no ones available, people are working, or they’re broke or they have to look after their kids, and in some instances, their other halves wont let them.
usually its me saying that I’m ill, or I’m broke, or that I have to look after Marianna, and its usually true, but this one time when I actually want to go out and do something, no one wants to go out and do anything. A little bit of me doesnt blame them, after all its cold and wet and dark and dealing with people is a hardship in itself, but come on it’s the weekend and most of us are still young (ish), lets get a keebab and go to a disco or whatever it is that hip young people do these days.
