You’re balking at this, I know, but hear me out. You’re done working out—we like the gym, sorry; have you seen the people at Equinox?—you’ve eaten dinner (or, if you’re out to eat, it’s ending, as is happy hour), but you can’t quiiiiite justify going to bed, because what if something crazy happens on TV and then you're out of the loop the next day at work and like #gah, you know?
The nine o’clock hour is total limbo. Should you call your parents? Put in 45 minutes writing that screenplay? You don’t want to do either of these, but you’re being guilt-tripped into it. Oh, nine o’clock, get off your high horse.
