A Bachelor’s Life

My lovely wife is out of town, meeting with colleagues in Albany, so I have been living the high life here as a bachelor. I think. Honestly, I have been married for so long I have forgotten what single guys do. Other than leave the toilet seat up and sit naked on furniture, which I decided not to do after all, I was not sure what I should be doing to embrace and reclaim my freedom and singleness.

So I decided to work. I kept telling myself that I was going to go to The Liberty Tavern and have a pint but I kept setting goals for production. Just one more photo to edit. No, I will finish this whole batch and then go. Before I knew it, it was 11:00 at night and the cat needed to be fed, the sink was full of dishes and I wasn’t going to get a pint anymore than I was going to win the lottery.

Tell me, folks – what do you single people do after work? I have to know so I can line up some things to do so I can feel awkward and out of place next time I am a temporary bachelor. Leaving the seat up is fun, but it gets old pretty quickly.
