Have you ever felt like you’ve stayed at the party too long? The chips are stale, and the coke has gone flat. All of the good food has been picked over and all that is left is the hard cheese. The conversation is such that lips are moving and all you hear is “blah, blah, blah.” Then you realize the lips that are moving are yours. It doesn’t matter anyway, you’ve already said what you have to say and now you are repeating yourself because, frankly, you’ve stayed at the party too long.

Anyone of interest, or that is interested, has left long ago, and you hang around hoping the party will get better, but it doesn’t. And you blame yourself because, well, you’re sort of the host. Occasionally someone new stops by to see what’s going on, but they don’t stay because there just isn’t anyone there or nothing exciting is going on to keep them there. All they hear is conversation that is going “blah, blah, blah,” and everyone looks bored, including you.

Have you ever felt like you’ve stayed at the party too long?

Yeah, me too.
