There are a lot of dinners. You decide to leave and suddenly everyone wants to go to dinner, get to know you, contribute their bit before you decide not to come back anymore. Or before they aren’t there to come back to.
Years and years and hours of holiday small talk and now they want substance - the raw, the good stuff. They want to look you in the eye and they want you to give a small piece of yourself to them, hand it over with a bow on top. This is funny to me.
