I could have said no, stayed in. But I've dragged him to enough of my events - usually rooms full of people that I know and he doesn't - that I figured it was only fair to reciprocate.
Amazingly enough, I had fun. Nice people, a little free booze, and new ammunition to use on Michael made it worth going outside. And I found out I'm being internet-stalked! of all the funny things!
So that was my social for a while. If anyone needs me for the next month or two, I'll be inside.
