It occurs to me that Valentine's Day is coming.

Right after Friday the 13th.

How appropriate.

I wish I could hate Valentine's Day, or love it, or feel anything despite this crushing indifference. I am comfortably disinterested.

I would like to be in love again.

A friend I had not spoken to in some time called, and the first words out of his mouth were, "So, have you gotten kissed yet?" I'd Twittered about the lack of kissing in my life and he was following the developments.

"No," I said. "I'm taking a hiatus from kissing. It's probably for the best. Anyway, I've had dry spells before."

"I hardly think you are old enough to have had dry spells of any consequence," he said.

My friend is good with words.

In some ways I still feel very much like a child and in others... I look at my life and realize it's been almost nine years since I moved out of my mother's house. More than three years since I moved to New York and became totally self-sufficient. I've been out of college almost four years. This is real real life and I'm going to be twenty seven, which, as I told Katrina tonight, means that if I die tomorrow the media will not say I was "tragically young."

I think the kissing will happen when I least expect it. If I am lucky, it will be accompanied by a delicious story that I can share with you, names changed to protect all involved, of course.

I am scattered but it is after 5AM and I have just finished with my work for today.

Life is good.

Happy Friday the 13th.

Love,
Beth
