Miscellaneous lessons learned

Going out when you wouldn't otherwise have gone out, merely because someone else is going, is virtually always a mistake. The dance or conversation you intended to have will not happen, and the perfectly good reason why you wouldn't otherwise have gone there, will still be true.

If you're going to do it anyway, (which, if you are anything like me, you will, just because you have to roll the dice sometimes) always have an alternative point to the evening. Even if it's a humourous one.

There's a Spanish word, desencuentro, which I think is wonderful because English simply doesn't have a word for a failed meeting, a non-encounter, an un-event, a dis-communication. Your miscellaneous lesson sounds like a desencuentro!
