Wow. I guess most of you know I've not been flying much for the last few months. But the big Clock of Reprieve has ticked itself out. I'm out of sick days and every other possible excuse I could file in order to stay on the ground. So...I bid a schedule for December. And darned if I didn't GET it!!!
DALE....get ready, my dear. I got an entire month of long layovers in San Diego. There is no escaping me now, you old goat! LOL.
I will be buying a multiple trip pass on the Coaster. I have SEVEN opportunities to hang out with Hoggie. Oh...and with you, too, of course, my dear (but only if you take me for a hand-sized chili relleno at your relative's incredible restaurant again, eh????)
Better yet, let's spend the day after Christmas together here in San Diego. I will pick you up at the train station and take you for an unforgettable Dec 26 meal in Little Italy (with NO walking!)
I'm buying. Sheesh. How can you say no???
THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD IMPROVE THIS MONTH IS IF SOME NEW EXER LETS ME KNOW THAT THEY ARE NEAR SAN DIEGO AND WOULD LIKE TO GET TOGETHER FOR BRUNCH, LUNCH, COCKTAILS, DINNER... REALLY...I MEAN THIS. DALE AND I ARE (sort of) GOOD COMPANY; I'LL BUY THE PITCHERS OF MARGs. They won't be as good as Pir8Fan (our dear Tommy) makes them, but hey, I said I'm buying, right??? LOL. Heck, I'm so starved for EX fun...I'll even buy DINNER.
Listen, the only thing that could make any of these layovers of mine better would be to have a new EXer come forward and want to hang out with us in either San Diego (my layover) or in Oceanside (Dale's town). PLEASE...if you are an EXer anywhere in this area, contact me. I WILL make this happen. If you worry that it might not be an okay way to spend a meal/evening...well, just contact any EX who has met me in one of my layover cities for dinner or happy hour. For heavens' sake.. ask me for EX references if you are concerned. I completely understand your concern. And I completely DON'T understand you not letting us get together to talk about how to quit...and more importantly, how to learn to enjoy life without cigarettes.
Dale...I am waiting to hear from you... Apple pie???
