I went out with some friends last night. Out to a bar for drinks and then a movie.
At 30, I’ve never really done the bar scene. I never saw the point. Then again, I’ve never been single and drinking age at the same time (I started dating my husband when I was 20).
I don’t get it. It’s always loud and full of people in various stages of inebriation. The drinks are overpriced. The older I get the less I understand the music choices. Thankfully the place last night had a hard on for 90’s music. Until the live band started. Which was just kinda sad.
I don’t even know if I would of gone much when I was single and 21+. Am I missing that gene?
After drinks, which I didn’t do because I don’t drink, we went to the movies. It was almost 10pm (and about an hour after my bedtime these days…). We watched the movie, which was about 3 dudes in their late 20’s I guess, going to bars and meeting ladies and dealing with that “Do I want a relationship?” issue. Of course it was a lot of bar/single people related stuff that I just don’t get. Was the movie bad? No, not really. I just literally have no real life experiences that come close to that.
But, of course, my friends do.
So after the movie they want to go out to another place. I’m tired, it’s almost midnight and again, I don’t get bars.
I duck out and head home. When I get there all the lights are off, but my dog is waiting for me in the living room. He was quite happy when I came home.
I appreciate time with my friends, otherwise we wouldn’t be friends. We always have a great time.
I just don’t get bars.
