Let's have a date

No, not that kind of date.  I've given up on those for a while.

I'm talking about you and me.

Maybe some coffee.

Or wine.

Depending on what time of day it is.  And what kind of day it's been.

When we meet up, I'd probably first ask you what's new with you.  I would happily listen and ask appropriate questions as you told me about your job, your love life, your family, a funny joke you heard on the radio, etc.  Your life is probably way more interesting and exciting than mine right now, so this might take quite a while. And I'm OK with that.

When it was my turn, I'd probably start by talking about the most recent episode of "The Bachelorette" or "Big Brother."  If you don't watch these, that's fine.  I'll just give you my quick opinion --- Des doesn't have much to choose from and I love the new MVP thing on "Big Brother." Then we can move on.  I might mention my beloved Rangers and how I'm OK with not many of them playing in the All-Star Game this year.  I mean, we won't find out for sure until Saturday, but I suspect we may only send two.  And I'm fine with that.  The boys can use some rest.

When I felt OK getting serious, I might tell you about how lost I feel right now.  It seems like my life has no purpose or direction at the moment.  On top of being jobless, I feel like there are other aspects in my life where I've failed as well --- friendships, love, etc.  For the second time in a year, I feel like my life is on hold while everyone else's keeps moving along.  I'm pretty sure someone my age isn't supposed to feel like this, but I don't know what to do about it.  I guess I just keep job searching and hope the other stuff falls into place eventually as well.

After that, I'd tell you that at least I have a few things to look forward to.  I have some fun 4th of July plans, and my weekend has the potential for a few highlights as well.  And then there's my birthday, which is just a few weeks out.  I'm not sure what I'm doing for it yet --- on the blog or in real life --- but hopefully I'll figure that out soon.  A few weeks after that, I have a bridal shower and wedding for one of my college roommates.  I am so excited to see Nicole and help her celebrate her big day.  And I love an excuse to get dressed up and party with some of our other roommates.

As our date comes to a close, I'd probably hug you (if you're comfortable with that) and tell you it was good to see you.  I'd wish you a good day or night and ask if we can do it again sometime soon. So can we?


  1. Sounds like a wonderful date to me! Except maybe I need to watch more of the things that you do. :/

  2. Sounds like a nice coffee date! And we can definitely talk about the Bachelorette-- the upcoming previews look really sad. :(
