So I Made A Blog Post Out of It

So I Made A Blog Post Out of It - D calls. He has met a girl. He tells me that she is nice. Real nice. I guess she must be. He tells me that he met her Thursday, that he saw her Friday, that he saw her today, Saturday, and took her to the airport, since she lives in Melbourne. He's just dropped her off. He's talking to me as he drives. We don't talk about my relationships. There's not much to say, anyway, really. Once he is finished, I ask him what he's doing.

"I'm going to buy a plane ticket," D says. "I'm gonna fly down to Melbourne, see her tomorrow. We're going to hang out, get to know each other. What's your plans?"

"Um. Proof read."

"Proof read?"

"I have a short story I plan to finish, if that helps."

"Dude, that's fucking tragic."

Apparently.

well, if its any consolation -- and I know it isn't -- I would rather be working on my new story than hanging out with some chick in melbourne. Not only is this because I'm not a lesbian... its also cos my new story ROCKS!!!

Sounds like a conversation I once overheard between Haines and Duffy.

But... before I read that (and I'm sorry I did), I wanted to say... that nicely-typed, wide margined, clean, crisp, ms looks very sexy. Are you sure your friend has a better deal?
