Negative + Negative = Negative?
Yeah, I realize those mathematicians in our midst are scratching their heads wondering what the New York City public school system did for my math skills. The object of this little title is simple. After looking forward to the after work dance party last Friday for over a month, I was baited away with a boy-that-cried-wolf story that was intended on being a romantic evening. This is where you should take notes. It isn’t a good idea to attempt to get someone to cancel or change concrete plans with a cute ploy for a special dinner. One of my special “friends” ran the story to me late Friday evening that basically had me running uptown to help them out after they allegedly lost their wallet. After taking two trains to get there, I was met with an offer I not only could refuse, but felt so upset by, I think I lost my voice making clear how not-impressed I really was. Finally, I jumped on the train and head home to spend time with my nephew who has the soothing powers of a saint. My apologies to the ladies. Now that we’re taking notes, let’s chalk this one up as two down in four months – Nelly is another cancelled treat. Turns out the Rican aggression is difficult to handle when multiplied by two.
Younger or older; does it matter? As you get older, do you take greater pains at making your relationships work because of a fear of being alone or do you know “when to fold them?” Do you believe it’s more important to “make” relationships work as you get older so that you can have someone there? Do you find yourself “carrying the one” until the next equation comes up?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
