You are dragging your feet and deliberately trying to stay where you are for as long as possible. This is partly because you are having a good time and you don’t want it to end, but also because you know that when it does end, you won’t be able to experience it again. When the planets give you a wake-up call at the end of the month, you’ll be happy to move on.
