Got out of the shower to the sound of my ringing phone.
It was MisunderstoodGirl!
I haven't talked to her since forever. She was sitting at Rich O's talking to a couple of PBDs, and they told her that they were there for my pre-birthday thingy. She won't be able to stay, but she wanted to call and wish me a happy birthday. That was sweet.
Anyway, besides the coolness of hearing from MisunderstoodGirl, there was another thing I got out of that phone call.
There are people that are there already. At 6:00.
I won't get there until after 7:00 myself, so they'll just have to wait.
The other, more general thing I got out of that phone call is kinda scary.
There are going to be people there. To see me.
I used to, back when I was playing pool publicly, I used to enjoy being the center of attention. Now, not so much. Or not at all.
Plus, I've got a mild case of surprisaphobia going on.
I told RockGirl that I should just stay home, but she told me not to be a dork. So I'm of course going.
I'll just keep an eye on the exits, just in case.
