I fully bet the writer and their friends are just getting older.

Agreed! I make way more than I made at 25 and spend a lot more on some things than I used to, so it’s not for economic reasons that I go out less now. It’s because it’s hard to go for spontaneous happy hours the way I used to, now that all my work friends have to do daycare pick-up right after work. Instead there’s a lot more drinking in someone’s living room once the kids are asleep.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
