Postcard from the Edge: An Update from the Road

Hello, everybody! I certainly wish that you could all be here in cold, drizzly Hometown with me on this fine Thursday. Just to give you a sense of my activities since my arrival, I thought I'd jot you a quick note. Suffice it to say that I am currently operating on 3 hours of sleep (from 7AM to 10 AM), that I went to... six?.... bars last night, two of which were having their karaoke nights, that while we had every intention of making it an early night and we did get a ride home by midnight, Friend From High School and I then called another friend to pick us back up (after we'd eaten a fortifying greasy sandwich) to go to another bar, and we ended up in a limo (totally odd) with a lawyer and a chiropractor formerly known as cool boys in high school, after which we then watched a Tom Clancy Novel Movie in the lawyer's parents' basement. Oh, and did I mention that the whole Field of Dreams theory totally works (at least for a probably casual encounter), that the dry spell is over, and that "just right" in person is very, very easy to determine? Yeah, 'cause that's why I got no sleep. The summer is off to a rockin' start indeed, my friends, a rockin' start indeed.

Babe, I'm really hoping that you hooked up with the chiropractor 'cause doing stuff in someone's parents' basement--even if he is a lawyer--is just waaaaay too hilarious.

Plus, I have a strong suspicion that a chiropractor would have some top-secret, super-freaky moves that the rest of us aren't privy to.

Oh yes, it was the chiropractor. The lawyer, for a variety of reasons including the fact that he and Friend from High School have had a "thing" for a number of years and that I've nursed unrequited love for his brother since high school, is totally off limits.

And I'm telling you, hooking up with somebody in anybody's parents' basement when all parties involved are between the ages of 31 and 35? Yeah, it's crazy even if the basement doesn't belong to the parents of the person with whom one hooks up.

As for the super-freaky moves, well, let's just say that I was pleasantly surprised, particularly given the circumstances of the hook-up :)

Too awesome! You have built it, and they have come... glad the dry spell is over Dr. C. :)
