Since we are renowned (among our small set) homebodies, this feels like a real step.

I’m not sure the chicks are going to be on board.

Later, I received this miffed email from another:

“Tried calling earlier. Where were you guys?”

It’s hard to change when they’re counting on you to stay the same.
