Why do older folks take advantage of restaurants' early bird specials? I would like to think that it because a 5 o'clock meal guarantees more time for evening activities such as movies, concerts, dance lessons, or book groups.
My book club meets tonight and I am so happy that this is no longer an after work activity.
I now have time to prepare dinner from scratch, eat it, and get out the door in time for the 7:30 meeting. I will even be able to quickly review the book which I read about two years ago and have totally forgotten.
On second thought, I should planned an even earlier dinner -- 4:00, or maybe 3:30?
