Fun Prank

In a recent philosophy meetup I went to, the host played a prank on me of sorts; she hosts the event in her apartment, and so always decides when the meetup ends. In this case, I was making a particularly bold attack on a dominant theme of reasoning in the group, and was expecting to need to defend my assertions and step back from them slightly (or at least have the nuances hashed out in ways that my tone was overbold), but she chose to cut it off right after my push; I "eeped", and she said that she thought it'd be the most amusing place to end the discussion. Heh. It was frustrating and funny, in that I feel I was left with a point unhumbled that probably needed at least a bit of humbling. Oh well.
