trippin' on tryptophane

it's dusk. massive quantities of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and martinelli's sparkling apple cider have been consumed. i'm reclined on my bed, as the darkness enfolds, thinking: "when should i call her, now? her family's probably eating now, i shouldn't call right now. maybe she will call me? should i send another email?"

i'm referring to a call i will need to make to coordinate meeting up with a friend i haven't seen in, well goodness, i don't know, ten years or so? she's back in town for the week, and since we've recently been back in touch, well, that's what people do - meet up again.

why haven't i called her yet today then? she said she'd be there after 1pm. well, i didn't want to call right at one, but by the time 2pm rolled around, well, i don't know what i was doing then - and then 3pm crawled up and we were preparing for "dinner", and now it's after 5pm and i'm thinking "is it too late to ring?"

i'm clearly insane. i have such an issue with calling people. it's this nervousness, some nervousness that took hold in high school, i suppose. ack! anyways, i'll need to call her, 'cuz i'd really like to see her again and all, but shoot, i don't want to interrupt her holiday dinner, either. (sigh.) okay, i'm letting it go. i'll call her around 7pm, i think. why am i writing (and sharing) this stupid stuff? because you're an idiot. oh yeah, that's it.
