Strange Days Indeed
I had dinner with Coleen last night. I asked her to have dinner at an Indian restaurant we both like. I had seen her all too briefly on Sunday and used that opportunity to ask and she said maybe. So I reached out to her after work and she agreed to pick me up right from the train.
I don't really understand the compulsion I have to spend time with her. It breaks my heart every time I say good-bye without saying how much I like her. But our conversations are always easy and light and I never want to break the mood by making things serious. I know what the answers will be and I'd rather enjoy her company with things as they are. I've already found out what it's like not having her around and I end up missing her terribly. It's better to have her friendship than not.
I was out and about over the weekend and did other things. Saturday I was at the beach late with Janet and others. It was okay but for the most part I was bored. I would have been much happier out on the boat ... which is what I did on Sunday.
