Any-who, sometimes compromise means watching a sport you don't enjoy, making small-talk with people you don't know, eating food you don't really like.
It also means you might have to stay up later than usual, and take a day off from work so you don't have to get up early the next day, or ask to leave the party early.
So, I'm off today - but I'm tired. I lost a vacation day, not to mention I gave Trooper a whole Sunday evening of my life, doing something I normally wouldn't do.
Was it worth it?
