Dining out: you go out into the cold dark night, fight your way through traffic, battle for a parking spot, then brave the cold again just to sit in a crowded, noisy, stuffy room with a bunch of people you'd normally cross the road to avoid. You then have to wait, wait, wait so eventually you get to eat over salted, over priced, over rated food, and to add insult to injury you pay for the experience. Then you battle your way home, and fall into bed as you feel a cold coming on which you caught from that guy with the persistent hacking cough. There goes your evening.
No thanks. I much rather cook myself some wholesome vittles and enjoy my evening in the warm comfort of my own home.
