It wasn't long ago I invited a friend to lunch. Her response, "Wonderful, if nothing better comes along that'd be great." Really? Am I to understand she may not meet me for lunch if perhaps her hairdresser can squeeze her in? My response, "Well, when our friendship is a priority, you let me know." I haven't heard from her since. I'm not surprised.
What's the matter with people today? Are we so commitment-phobic that we can't even 'do lunch'? I remember a simpler time when lunch was simply lunch. Friends committed to meet somewhere, some day, at some time to simply enjoy each others' company. AND EVERYONE SHOWED UP!! Nothing better came along.
I know of a woman who put on a spectacular party for no minimal amount of money, I'm sure, and sent out invitations to fifty people. Thirty of the fifty RSVP'd with a YES ... and only one showed up. One guest who had responded with a 'yes' told me later she had gone shopping with a friend. The worse part of that faux pas was that she KNEW SHE WAS LETTING HER FRIEND DOWN ... and it didn't seem to matter to her at all. What in the hell is that about???
Who Am I?
I am what I am ... nothing more, nothing less. It's not that I know more than anyone else ... it's just that I've lived longer than a good many and have experienced life. I am a people watcher, a listener. I don't judge ... we all have a journey ... thank you for allowing me to share my journey with you.
