With too many of our friends, it's been way too long since we've hung out. Like this here - it's been too long. So I thought we could pretend that we're sitting down for a nice leisurely lunch - what a dream, right? What would we talk about? What do we need to catch up on?
I might start by telling you that I love my job, and I think it's going pretty well. I question whether some of my co-workers like me, but I think most are at least okay with me and the work I do, so that's great. I love writing and editing and formatting documents. I love everything I do at work. And I'm busy, which feels amazing and wonderful. I love looking forward to work because there's stuff to do! It makes me feel so energized!
After hearing me drone on about how I love my job (a job that I've discovered most people find extremely boring), I'd finally ask what you've been up to recently - anything new?
Depending on what you tell me, it might trigger my urge to tell you (and the rest of the works) that I'm training for a half, but I haven't been as great during this training cycle as I was for others, particularly my first. But it's going to be okay, I would tell you, because my A goal is just to finish and not die from the effort. I just want the finisher's medal. I want to turn all of my race medals into Christmas ornaments.
Inevitable, you'd ask about upcoming trips, because that's what we do: we travel. Is tell you that Tim has a business trip to Philadelphia, but if he thinks he's going without me and Katelyn, he's in for a surprise. And then we're going to Hawaii pretty late in the year. We're really anxious and excited about flying with the Munchkin. Diapers and strollers and everything else - this could be interesting.
So... What would YOU talk about over lunch?
Also: where are we going? You have to pick, because I drove.
