I have to visit my hometown this weekend and I’m only in town for a brief time. I usually try to cram in catching up with as many of my family and friends as possible, particularly since I do not go home very often. I asked one of my best friends if he had time for me Friday evening. I’m already somewhat annoyed that we can’t hook up until 9:15pm because he has caipoeira class that evening which, by the way, I think he should skip since I’m only in town twice a year, but on top of that, he wants to bring his girlfriend. She probably won’t last until the end of the year and now I have to make small talk with this chick. I really do not want to spend my precious little time with my friend trying to keep the conversation PG because his girl is there.
Am I wrong for not wanting to hang out with her and seriously thinking about bumping him off the schedule for another friend?
Here’s my response:
I totally feel you. I would like to say that you should just suck it up and get together with him and his girlfriend, especially since he’s such a good friend. However, that’s the grown-up me talking. The real me says “blow them off”…but you can’t tell him why. Life’s too short to be spending an evening with somebody you don’t feel like being bothered with who is not going to be a significant person in your life. Catch him next time.
