Dear Diary

Well, I woke up this morning with a scratchy throat. I almost always come down with a cold when I fly, so I can’t say I’m surprised. I took it easy throughout the morning and decided to go see one of the touristy things I have seen before in the afternoon. Then I figured I’d sit in a cafe and finish writing the post I didn’t finish yesterday. Needless to say, it didn’t work out that way. A man asked me to go for a cup of coffee. At first I said, “No,” but I didn’t say no firmly and next thing I know I was saying yest. Then before I knew it, he had grabbed me by the hand and was heading to the metro. I figure that we would just go get a cup of coffee nearby. Then we emerged at another stop and walked a few blocks until we came to a particular cafe. I have no idea why we went to that cafe in particular. Now, I’m really tired and my feet are killing. I don’t know how I always get myself into these positions.

I’m single and I haven’t gotten laid in longer than I’d like to admit, but I don’t want any complications in my life.

    The last line cracked me up…I get it : )

  2. Oh dear, that last line makes me want to laugh… but then again, I understand when you say you don’t want complications in your life.

      Yes, it would be so nice if one could figure out ahead of time exactly what the other person wanted. Then, on the other hand, to be completely just about it, I don’t know exactly what I want and that changes half the time. After all, I was saying no and then he said, “Are you married?” and suddenly I thought to myself, “Okay, I’ll go for a cup of coffee and see. After all, a little mini-romance while on vacation wouldn’t be out of the question.”

      However, now that I’m thinking about the way he ran me around and didn’t pay any attention to me when I said I was tired, coming down with a cold and still a little jet-lagged, maybe he would not be a good choice. In any case, I’m paying today for being a wuss yesterday.

      • Have fun my dear friend and when the vacation is over, enchant us with the lovely photos you will have taken.
