Sunshine’s drinking nights are Fridays.
Today she asked me to go for a drink after work, but I couldn’t do it.
I could barely hold my head up at my computer, I wasn’t quite sure what would happen if I had a cocktail and tried to remain vertical.
My eyelids were also getting droopy and I knew as soon as I hit the couch I was going to be out like a light…. but I also knew I wanted a glass of wine to calm my nerves from the week.
And get ready for the week ahead…. getting ahead at work so I can go home for my dad’s big birthday.
On the way home I checked my voicemail, and there were 2 messages.
Perky and the Cat Lady called, and both of them said something to the effect that they were sure I was having a cocktail or at a bar drinking and talking to cute boys and that’s why I didn’t pick up the phone.
They are soooo funny! I was working late that’s why I didn’t pick up the phone, but it’s nice to be thought of as the party girl and the one who is always out having a good time.
Probably because I feel like I stay home quite a bit…. but maybe in reality I am out more than the average bear and they are envious of the life I lead.
Who knows? I could also talk a good game that makes them think I have more going on than I really do.
Whatever the case, I did feel like I needed to live up to some image in their mind…. but I certainly didn’t have the energy to do it.
I was surprised I was awake past 9pm, which I mentioned to the wine guy when he called.
We’re getting together tomorrow at a wine event. It sounds like a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to seeing him outside of a lunchtime work excursion.
