Whether I get a vocal “This is sooo true” or a silent “Amen” there are going to be many who can relate to this at some point in their lives. So many have told me the older they get, the more it seems like all social activities with friends and family involve food and alcohol.
It’s not a terrible thing if you have younger kids and the opportunities to get out of the house by yourself without anyone attached to your hip is very far and few between.
