Stating the obvious

In Writing on October 4, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Okay, we need to talk.

Don’t get that face. It’s okay, really.

Need I state the obvious? I haven’t been around much lately. I’m really sorry about that. It’s just…just been crazy. You know?

Anyway, it’s not about you, it’s me. I’m the one at fault here. I’ve been AWL, under the radar, off the res. Really, I’m the one’s whose taken the sidestep here.

So, anyway, you know, tomorrow I’m driving to Maryland. It’s my daughter’s wedding! Can you believe that? Crazy, I know. Yeah, father-daughter dance, Louie singing It’s a Wonderful World. Perfect, eh? Yeah, right.

Then back home and north to see the foliage. A week knocking around the Maine woods looking at trees. Imagine that!

And last, I’ve rented a cabin in Cushing for a couple weeks. Splitting wood, feeding the stove, staring into space–guys stuff, you know? Yeah, you know.

So what is that? Like a month without seeing each other? Without even talking? Two months maybe. Max. Really, I think it’s a good idea. Just imagine all that pent-up’edness!

So we got it, right? I’m heading off yonder for a few weeks, a month or so, and you’re gonna…you’re gonna. You’re gonna what? Geezee, I don’t really have a clue do I?
