When I last wrote about Sabrina she had just gotten a great new Marketing job with a company down on the waterfront.
She sent me some photos of her office and view. She has a really nice space and a clear view of the boats docked in the harbor. I’m really happy for her!
She asks if I’m doing my usual Monday routine. I tell her I’m over at Cavanaugh’s writing about when I lived in California n the early eighties with my band. So, yes just a regular Monday.
“I’m so proud of you, Sabrina! You really stepped up and made that new job happen. You’re office is amazing!”
“Thank you! I spoke it into reality with a little help from my friends.”
“You did it. Determination and drive. Proud of you! Now get divorced and get your alimony and freedom!”
“Yes that is next on my list!”
“This is your year, Sabrina! Rise up! Rise above!”
“Yes the last two years I lost everything! Now I’m coming back for everything that I lost and more.”
“Yea! Drop the bars of the cage you’ve been in and walk the heck out! You’re free!”
A week passes…
“I work 11 to 4pm at the salon on Sunday, but would love to see you after 4.”
“Yea, then Sunday dinner. Would you be coming to my house in Havertown?”
(Could she mean sex?)
“No way to get there.”
“Oh right. I guess you can Uber? It’s $10-$11 bucks. Or I can meet you in the city if that’s better. I want to get my spray tan soon too. And give you a hug!”
(I like that last part)
“Can you come to the city?”
The next day…
“Hey are you at the tanning salon?”
“Ugh actually I gotta get back to work. I was gonna stop by real quick. I’ll see you Sunday.”
“Cool. See you Sunday.”
And it ends there. So Sunday we’ll meet up for some dinner. She doesn’t have to buy me dinner. I think she feels that because of the positive energy I provide and the snap to it assistance in trying to find her additional work, she feels she has to do something for me. I want nothing from her. I’m happy to help people. But if she wants to meet up for dinner, I could at least get the tip. (Remember how I used to always complain about the wallets never coming out? I need to seize her offer and enjoy her company!)
I know a place we can go that has reasonable priced food and is quiet. I was there recently with my friend Mary. (See: Mary – 2015 to Present – Unexpected Table for Two) I’ll figure out some options. But, in the end I’ll just be happy to see Sabrina.
