We chose to take a bus home. The rain had passed, but I think we made a wise choice, especially since my neighbourhood can get a bit seedy at night. Being home around ten, we thought we'd venture out and go to a coffee shop or bar. First we went into a coffee shop, but they were just about to close, so we tried a bar. A big, muscular bouncer greeted us at the door and asked for my age and identification. I knew we weren't getting in. I don't have identification. Truthfully, I wasn't all that disappointed. Bars aren't really my scene; coffee shops are. We ended up going to the Golden Griddle where my friend had tea and I had hot water with lemon. It was a cozy experience and it warmed me up -probably better than any drink at a bar could do. Sometimes it pays not to look my age.
Today was a rainy, dreary one. My friend and I went out for breakfast. It was nice to do something different. I'm always home for breakfast. We decided on a restaurant called Rich Tree, a self-serve cafe. I had toast, which isn't too exciting, but I enjoyed being out and about. Hopefully my friend did too.
Given the rainy weather, we opted to see Sex And The City at the theater near my apartment. My friend really enjoyed it. I did too, especially the second time around. It's such a chick flick. As I watched it again, I realized how fortunate I am that the Observer was willing to go see such a female friendly movie. What a sweet guy.
Speaking of the Observer, I really miss him. Friday was the last I heard from him. I wonder what he is doing right now. Today is the wedding, so maybe he is dancing with family, kissing relatives or eating anti-pasto. Whatever he's up to, I hope he's having fun. I'm looking forward to the Observer's return. I enjoy spending time with my friend, but I miss the Observer's company, affection and laugh. He's one of a kind.
I have amazing people in my life. I may not look twenty-five, but I have been around long enough to understand that spending a rainy Sunday at the movies with a friend is something to be thankful for.
