Alex: Jim, when I said you were a flake, I meant you’d done some weird things.
Jim: Name one.
Alex: You lived in a condemned building for five years.
Jim: You’re confusing flakiness with style!
Alex: You kept a horse named Gary in your bedroom.
Jim [condescendingly]: Not everyone has a guest room, Alex.-Taxi
Match and I have been trying to have a house warming party since we moved into our new place. It’s been a little bit frustrating because we can’t seem to get any of our old friends to commit to a weekend night to come over. I’m just thankful we’re making friends here in our new town. I know people are busy but you’d think we’d be able to plan something. I love our friends, but some of them are terrible at making plans, especially Tahoe Couple. I love that they are spontaneous but it also sucks in the real world. I am envious of their footloose lifestyle where they can just pick up and travel at a moment’s notice. Some day, maybe when Match and I retire we can get an rv insurance quote, buy an rv and just hit the road travelling. Even then, I think we’ll want to plan things out. I like having things to look forward to and being able to plan ahead. Maybe that’s part of growing up, or maybe it’s just my personality type.
As for our house warming party, I guess we’ll just have to scrap it and get together with our friends in smaller groups. Sometimes I really long for the days where people would send out written invitations to parties and guests would have to reply back in writing. I know, I’m old school!
