To what kind of logic are you refering to if not our Western one !?
Is that a ' logical ' respons not to go to a party if you are tired !?
Cultural, social, emotional reasons play a far more role than you imply
here, though !
Not to intend certain parties is not well socially received in certain mids.
And what to say about Afghanistan, would Peter respond in the same
logical, cultural or emotional way if he knew his country could be invaded
or bombed during the party !?
Logic is ok by me, but don 't forget the context wherein that logic plays !
