I get excited about things, make plans to do those things, then stop home before going. Then I stay home.
Most times it’s because I don’t really like being places, but tonight it was because, with the way my work schedule is, I can go 5 or 6 days without seeing my wife and kids for anything longer than 20 minutes a day.
I had to be around my kids tonight. They recharge the batteries which power my Nearby Bullshit Inhibitor Machine. Without that, my bullshit-threshold becomes dangerously low, opening the door for the Bad Things.
