I plan on going out on a certain night a few days beforehand, and know where I’m going.
I leave it until really late to see who else I know is actually going into town or wherever, no matter how long I’ve known I’m probably going to go out.
I decide, maybe an hour or two before I should be leaving, that I’m not that bothered about going out after all.
I then get a text or two about going out, and one saying “we’re leaving in 20 minutes, do you want a lift?”
Then, and only then, do I decide I’m definitely going out.
Once this momentous decision is made, it’s followed by approximately 5 minutes of running around looking for clothes that hopefully aren’t out for the wash or hanging out on the line, 10 minutes of frantically searching for my hairbrush, and 5 minutes of attempting to straighten or just calm my hair a bit. That’s more or less it, give or take a couple of minutes.
My life would be far easier if I just gave myself an hour or so to get ready, but of course I opt for the hectic 20 minutes of running around looking for clothes, shoes, the straightener, and my ever-elusive hairbrush.
Basically, don’t do any of that the next time you go on a night out!
