what about your friends?

in the prophetic words of TLC...

i haven't got many these days...

well, at home anyway.

it seems so bizarre that i would have to pick up the phone and dial another area code to hear the voice of someone who remotely knows me.

in a lot of ways seeing an old friend is like seeing a mirror. you almost forget certain parts of you until you see your reflection again.

for my birthday i went to chicago and we were out at my favorite diner for some late nite eats... i ordered a tuna sandwich and ending up picking off half the stuff that was on it and poked and prodded it with a fork until it was almost unrecognizable.

my friend steph remarked, "i almost forgot how awkward of an eater you are."

"what?!", i responded. all this time i had thought my awkward eating habits were a new occurence some horrible symptom of post-graduate blues but noooooooooooo...

i've always been an awkward eater.

this isn't new ... it just feels new because there isn't anyone to witness it and say, "are you kidding me? remember when you used to make those disgusting wraps at SAGA?"

this note isn't so much about my horribly awkward eating habits as its about people who...TRULY know you and all your absurd little quirks and then moving to a place where nobody knows you...nobody knows you at all...

the big q

a very big question on my mind these days when it comes to women and their respective men is...

what are we going to endure?

what are we going to take?
how much can we stand?

what can we tolerate?

what-are-the-deal-breakers?

skipping stones

you wanted to show me how great you were

and i wanted to show you myself.
