But he was game to keep me company on Gmail over lunch today. Solving the problems of my life, which he does well when in Cheerful Producer of the World mode, like he is right now.
Perfect on a a day when I'm saddled with a throat (that ostensibly feels as if it is) coated with glass shards. Which kept me up most of last night looking for the cool side of the pillow and a neck angle that didn't cause further coughing. Which made today a joy.
Which is another reason I'm just going to let the conversation speak for itself. I'll work how to make this blog more "not trying not to be single" at a later date.
Karin: So, questions.What should I get J & J for their wedding?
Justin: Hm....They register somewhere?
K: And -- I have to RSVP by April 30. Should I proactively RSVP with a guest, even though I have no one?
Justin: Will you know alot of other people at the wedding? B/C I actually have some feedback about this RSVP thing.
K: Eh....probably 3 or 4 others. I know their families ... What's your feedback, oh sage?
J: Well, if you know people (fairly well)...then it MIGHT be best to go alone, depending on WHO you might take. I just went to a wedding and sat around a table with high school friends and spouses, SO. There was this one girl there who brought her 3-wk old boyfriend of sorts with her. A totally awkward evening for him, and sometimes for the rest of us. Once a guy knows where he stands with a woman (both in his mind and from her point of view), then he feels comfortable. B/C you definitely don't want to have to babysit someone...
J: Maybe not the best answer...
K: Just saying that going to a wedding alone for the umpteenth time and having to figure out all my own small talk is ..... preemptively exhausting.
Justin: Yup. I mean, you could do a +1 and if you have the right invite... you'll know.
K: I know. But I don't even have a prospect at the moment. Man in NY doesn't count.
J: Ha. I know. I know....
K: I think I need a desert island, an unlimited library and an unlimited supply of cosmopolitans and peanut butter. That sounds better than anything I've got on my plate right now.
J: Sounds pretty good to me too. Hm... This information about that whole depression thing .... I think the fact that your blog and life intersect so much can't be the healthiest. I think a "spring cleaning" is in order...:)
K: You're most certainly probably right.
J: I think, seriously that you could focus on the SINGLE part. Not so much the TRYING NOT TO BE SINGLE (on your blog) not necessarily your life. :)
K: Don't I already do that?
J: I don't think so. Do you? Maybe I've been misreading? :) I'll have to go back and re-read some of my favorite posts.
