I need a pep talk. →
[More:]I replied yes to a casual friend's 40th birthday party that is getting started in one half hour from now. I do not want to go, but must force myself because I replied yes and it would be rude not to show up, but I'm not so sure they would care.
I need to jump in the shower. It will be no problem showing up fashionably late, but I need a kick in the ass to go. A big kick. I think there is going to be a male stripper and that makes me all the more unwilling.
This sucks. I'm getting in the shower but this sucks. Why did I reply yes?
