I never stay up until 2:30am. I am a morning person. Yet here I am, just returning from a lovely evening out. A friend invited us and two other couples over for dinner. "Come at 8:30pm." We get there at 8:45pm and are the first to arrive. Dinner starts at 9:45pm. Main course at 10:45pm. Cheese at 11:45pm. Dessert at 12:30am. Coffee offered at 1:15am. After dinner drinks at 1:45am. We leave at 2:15am (the first ones, bien sur). Great company. Great food... but I'm so tired. Hard to believe my husband has to wake up at 8am to take my son to basketball. Glad it's not me.
