"I guess I'm still waiting for someone to wake me up. I'll be over her when someone new takes the space she occupied."

"I think its the same way for me," she said, and I was surprised that my heart made no suggestion that we wake up to each other.

She sat on my couch and we ate chinese food and the cat buried her face in the umbrella girl's sweater.

"She goes from being like 'don't touch me' spastic to 'I LOVVVVVE YOU.' She's so inconsistent," she said as the cat flopped over, purring loudly.

"She and I are a lot alike," I said.

"But---nevermind."

"What?"

"I was going to say "'But she does it out of fear.'"

She sat on my couch and I searched my guts for an echo of last November's madness.

Nothing. No clothes rending, no heart wrenching. Only an ego still barely bruised, the deep purples of last fall barely a yellow shadow this March night, and easy conversation with a friend.

So. What's next?

Love,
Beth

What's next? Whatever you want: What does your heart wish for Beth? :)

Did you ever contact the person you mentioned last time I saw you? I feel like I should be cryptic about that for some reason. Anyway, THAT could be next... or any number of other prospects that are bound to crop up.
On another note.... I have no major plans this weekend. Mexican brunch perhaps????
