Just about two months ago, I said goodbye to you. At that time I said I hoped I would never see you again. To be honest, every once in a while I think about you and how good you made me feel for the five minutes we were together. Of course I had to give you up because the hours after the five minutes were never good for me. And the last few weeks have been great without you. I have new friends now who actually want to help me and after I eat them, I never feel as bad inside as I did when I ate you.
But today was different. As I was getting ready to leave the office to do the daily work errands, I figured I would stop at the supermarket to say hi and grab a package of you and your two friends. Why not I thought. I have been doing amazingly well, especially this past week and why shouldn’t I have a treat. And I knew I wanted to get a car wash and the supermarket is directly across from the car wash. So off I went and kept thinking on the way to the car wash that I was thinking about whether I actually wanted to see you. But you have this certain magnetic attraction that was so hard to resist for a long time. But this time the attraction wasn’t as strong.
I pulled into the line at the car wash and then I entered the machine that washes the car. The entire time I was going back and forth about crossing the street to grab you and your friends. But when the carnuba wax light came on, I realized that I just don’t want you. And by the time the “Go” light came on after the drying concluded, I decided that I wasn’t going to cross the street. The people finished drying my car, I made a right turn and continued on with my errands without ever looking back!
You almost got me this time. I hope there won’t be a next time. The carnuba wax reinforced my belief that there are some things I just freaking want more than you and your friends. Like playing tennis. Like going on vacation. Like being able to easily fit in a booth at a restaurant without having to ask for a table.
