Worf Sat On My Couch

Last night, my roommates threw a dinner party. Apparently they have a regular thing, once a month, with a group of friends. Everybody brings a dish, they eat, talk, swap recipies. It all seems suspiciously grown-up sounding. Last night it was their turn to host, so I was sucked into the Dinner Party Vortex.

The people were all very nice, charming folks, I just don't think I'm cut out for dinner parties. Small talk, mingling, all that... it just doesn't appeal to me at all. And since I was already an outsider in this group, it was even worse.

Oh, and the guy who played "Worf" on Star Trek was there. He sat on my couch. That's sorta weird.

I have a theory that as we grow older, we begin to try on adult behaviors. We wear adult clothing, throw adult dinner parties, talk about adult subjects. At first, we do it because it's funny - Look, I'm wearing a house dress and throwing a dinner party! Then eventually the habits take root and they're second nature. People don't grow up, they just forget how to be kids.
