My day Friday started with a wonderful surprise Sports Day, and I was fully ready to cruise to the weekend after the festivities were over. I typically leave school around 4:17 to catch the 4:20 bus home. At about 4:12 on Friday one of the teachers asked me if I was coming to dinner.
Yes, it was what I feared. There was in fact a teacher's dinner that I was expected to attend after school. Now, it's not that I don't like the teachers at my school. I actually like them a lot, but that doesn't make teacher dinners any less boring when you can't really communicate with anyone. Also....it was Friday. All I wanted to do was get home and put some sweatpants on.
Luckily the plan was to eat at a restaurant right next to my apartment. It also wasn't a super long teacher's dinner with drinking afterwards (which can happen more times than not). So, I guess all in all I can be thankful for that.
Needless to say, by the time I got home Friday night I was ready to settle in for a surprise-free night locked in my apartment.
