Sunday

At work on Saturday night/Sunday morning I decided to take a short nap once all the work was done.  I knew that if I were getting up around noon in order to meet Ryan that I could use all the sleep I could get.  This proved to be a bad mistake.  I slept for an hour at work and, upon getting home and into my own bed, remained wide awake.  We’re talking tossing and turning, mumbling angrily, WIDE FREAKIN’ AWAKE.

I had called Ryan last night and left a voicemail about perhaps changing our plans because I had completely forgotten that this weekend was the book fair!!!  How could I forget?  I slept in yesterday and missed it, so I asked Ryan if he’d mind terribly if we did that instead.  He called me back at 10:30 this morning and we discussed it briefly.  We decided to postpone the date and perhaps just meet halfway at a coffeehouse or a bar next weekend.  This sounded lovely to me (as I still hadn’t slept yet).

So I got to spend an afternoon sipping energy drinks and perusing book tables.  I also feel like I got a one-up over my period which thought it would be spitefully clever by starting yesterday.  I even pointed in the direction of my uterus and said, “HA!”  I don’t think anyone’s ever been as happy as I was at the thought of postponing a date–I even did a little dance, I kid you not.

But wait!  There’s more!  I got to spend a couple hours with Warren!!  She and John were visiting people in Indiana and were flying back home to Arizona via Chicago.  So I went to the airport to hang out with them.  I hadn’t seen either in a very long time.  Warren and I established the last time was in 2004.

And now I am going to spend my one and only night off this week by: eating a turkey burger, watching the last two episodes of Showtime’s Huff (a really good show–Hank Azaria and Oliver Platt), and doing some laundry.  Very nice.

  1. It was so good to see you! I really hope I can hang out with you in Chicago someday. I keep thinking about the pretty downtown streets. 🙂

    • Glad you guys got back okay. And I promise that if you do come up here I won’t show you any garbage-filled alleys or rats.

What do you think?
