The first time was Friday. I've already mentioned how those particular plans fell apart as quickly as they'd been made. Too many things to do, in too short of a time period. I fell short.
The second time was Saturday night. Those plans never really had a chance to form. It became too late before it ever really became feasible.
Tonight was the third time.
So, I missed her. I wanted to see her.
I'm not sure if I'm supposed to feel those things, or write those things.
The feeling them part is involuntary and constant. May as well ask me to stop breathing.
The part about writing about those things is a little different. But I feel like I gave up a huge chunk of my dignity, a couple of months ago, to give myself the right to express those feelings without them being greeted with shock or outrage.
Anyway, like I said, tonight was the third time.
And, as the saying goes, third time's a charm.
It was really nice.
