Him: I should get back.
Me: Why? So you can go home and wallow?
Went out with two buddies the other night. It’s funny how life works.
- Met this woman named Jane years ago, she introduced me to her ex, Gio.
- Gio and I became friends and he introduced me to WM.
- WM and I were out late one night and he introduced me to Heartgirl.
The moral of that story is: don’t be a jerk and you might meet someone nice.
Anywho – Gio, WM and I of us grabbed some wings, mussels and beers down on the LES last week. Afterward WM and I hopped into his whip while Gio took his bike over to a karaoke joint at St. Marks. Gio beat us there by several minutes. They both belted out some tunes while I just listened. Not much of a singer, me.
The fellas are both dealing with breakups. Told them both that it’s time to clean their maps; one’s trying and the other’s not. Like with most things, y’get better when you’re not thinking about getting better.
Speakinga getting better I’m sick again. Aren’t summer colds the worst? So HG and I just stayed home and saw happythankyoumoreplease with music from Jaymay. More on that when I’m not feeling like hot death.
Him: (the next day) Good hanging out and thanks for the advice…By the way, I stopped by Whiskey Tavern afterward, met a cute girl and got her digits.
Me: Of course you did.
