porter?

i go to work at 6:45.
work.
on the way home i resolve to take a month off from drinking and eating fast food. would like to lose weight and it's a waste of money.
return at 5:00
when i get home i get my daughter off to gymnastics and my wife and son to the library. i sit down and do work related work until 7:15.
7:15 is dinner when everybody will convene at the house. i had already started the soup boiling. there is a basketball game i would like to watch on espn. i don't get espn. so to a bar i must go.
son is refusing to eat. i really want to see the game. i feel justified in leaving the family at dinner to go watch a game. wife says, "go, just don't be stupid." she means don't spend too much and don't drive drunk. i say i'll just smoke now and have a soda at the bar. dinner seems to be going well. tip off was at 7:05. i'm now seriously feeling the family obligation pull. i don't really need to see a game on monday night.
DO I GO?
