Meeting up with friends
My friend Gradgirl came by Friday night for a movie.
Her: I bought vodka.
Me: You know I have a ton of rum, right?
Her: (shrugging and pulling out a bottle of vodka from bag) Just in case.
We ended up drinking far more than either of us intended.
Her: I have to crash here.
Me: OK. You’ll get a donut and coffee for breakfast.
Her: (laughing) Why?
Me: You’re my guest. My guests get a donut and coffee for breakfast.
Then Saturday morning met up at Burger and Lobster with my friends Kung – Alison was the girl in the third convo in that link – and Nadi. It’s been ages since I saw them. They’re part of my friends that knew Alison so it was difficult seeing them.
Managed to only break down twice with them, which, trust me, is a huge improvement.
Me: The truth is that I married Alison because she was the only person I knew I could be faithful to. Once I met her, I knew I was done.
Nadi: (laughing) Oh, we all knew she had your number the day she met you.
Which isn’t to say it was all tears and rain.
Server: OK, who ordered the pineapple cider?
Me: (turning to Nadi) Ummm, her?
Kung ended up buying us all brunch.
Me: (to Kung) Thanks for…lunch? Breakfast?
Nadi: (exasperated) Brunch! It’s called brunch, Logan.
Me: I’ve been dealing with a lot.
Kung: Anytime, Logan. I’m right across the park.
Location: home, making eggs for the boy
Music: You and me, always between the lines
