Last night I went out with a friend to eat at a middle eastern restaurant. Usually when I go out with this friend, she has a glass of wine, so I do, too. This time we did not. (we were going to a book talk afterwards and she was worried she would fall asleep.) Usually when I go out with my fiancee, he always wants soup first, so I have soup too. This time, we just had water and the entree. It was a very enjoyable dinner, and cost much less without the soup and the wine, and I feel good Spark-wise.
Here is the conundrum: when I eat out, I always go along with what the other person is doing, if it is a glass of wine, if it is extra soup, if it is dessert. That is part of being social.
(also I like wine, soup, and dessert!!!)
