Glen asked me at work if I'd like to join him in a trip to a little chess-playing get-together. Despite my normal reaction, I said I'd join him.
So that started at 7pm. Official runtime was until 11pm. Glen was planning on staying until 9pm.
Glen noticed the time at 10:30pm. So much for a short evening. :-)
I went 2-2-1 against reasonable oppoennts: 1-1-1 against Glen and 1-1 against the expert chess-playing children (ages 10 and 12 I believe).
Oh, and got skunked 0-2 against a real chess player.
But it was fun. I need more social things in my life.
