Merry Emotional Angst

You know your parents have been in town too long (and getting way too comfortable driving their car around the Dallas highways) when you are zipping in and out of traffic, speeding with a capital "S" on your way home from a job (all so you can get to the last quality family time dinner before they roadtrip on home) and your phone rings and it is your mother, busting you for driving like a maniac, as they just happened to be five cars behind you when you pulled that last kamikaze stunt and now, instead of enjoying 10 minutes of sweet, peaceful alone time before the general chaos and guilt trips and all-around-mind-fucking-parent-child-dynamic, you get to spend 10 minutes listening to your mother tell you to slow down, you almost gave your father a heart attack, do you always drive like that, and wouldn't you really like to live to enjoy another slice of pumpkin pie with the family...

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

I don't know if you still check around these parts, but I have been dying to talk to you and have been lousy at finding the time.

Have I told you I'm in love?

I know you, more thany any friend I have ever had, would be so happy to hear that.

And it's for real this time. It's healthy and it gets better every day. Her name is Jennifer and she has really changed my life.

I have had this wonderful feeling inside myself for months now, and I've been wanting to share it with you. Despite how it may appear, I think about you all the time and I hope this note (if it makes its way to you) finds you well.

I miss you. I hope someday one of us can find the time to visit the other, because I would love to share some wine and a great meal with you, and catch up on all these quickly passing years.

You are still the greatest friend I've ever known, and I love you.
