Some friends and I were discussing where to go after our next theater outing.
One of them suggested Hatch Family Chocolates (yes, from the TV show "The Little Chocolatiers"). My heart immediately sank in disappointment when I discovered their closing time is 10pm and we may not make it there in time after the show.
Then I realized that my definition of "in time" is "in enough time to have our treats and relax and enjoy them before 10pm." Closing time is the time at which we need to be out.
Yet I know of people whose definition is "as long as I make it there before they lock the door."
Is closing time the last moment the doors are open, or is it the last logical time you can enter and be finished before the doors are locked?
What do you think?
