Back in 2003, I had a friend and colleague who introduced me to a really fun group of girls. We all used to get together every week and have dinner. Usually it was a mix of guys and girls. One of the girls, Naomi, would always pull me aside and tell me she thought it would be cool if the two of us went out for happy hour or something. We both lived in the same part of town.
So, each time I saw her, she kept saying "hey, put me in your cell phone and let's hang out". So, after about the 3rd or 4th time, I finally said, ok. Put her in my cell and invited her over to hang out for a while. She came over and we hung out in the gazebo of my apartments and, Chris, my neighbor and friend saw us and decided to visit with us. And he stayed and stayed and wouldn't leave. So, next thing I know, Chris and Naomi are a dating.
Next thing I know, I'm on the outside. I'm not being invited to events and whenever I see Naomi, it's because she's hanging out with Chris. The last time I saw her was February 14th, 2004.
So,yesterday, Naomi calls me out of the blue and wants to reconnect. I spoke to her at length this morning and we agreed to hook up for dinner and catch up.
Isn't that interesting?
I'm wondering if this has to do with the Holidays. We think over things, friends, resolutions etc. and I'm thinking that maybe this has to do with why these events have occured.
