OK, OK I get it, I can be a selfish C U Next Tuesday sometimes. But, so, I believe, can most of the rest of the human race (and if you haven't tried being selfish and treating yourself like the Queen or King you are, I heartily suggest it!) What I don't get, however, is how someone who has known me for the better part of a decade could possibly be surprised by this fact. Particularly when the current state of events is not particularly selfish, nor is it particularly bitchy on my part.
I have a friend, however, who seems to think that because I am in a relationship, and didn't call him for a few days, that it is a sign of friendship Armageddon. Apparently, because I had a busy weekend filled with wonderful events, family I haven't seen since December, and an all too brief visit from a GREAT friend from Miami on Monday, I am a selfish prick for not calling someone back before Wednesday when I SAW him on Saturday night. I don't even call my Mom THAT often (and believe you me, I call my Mom pretty often!)
Yes, I am a bit preoccupied with the relationship I am in, but it is still new and exciting and fun, and honestly, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT??? I mean, seriously, who wouldn't be immersing him or herself in something that is new and positive and good in their life? Yes, some things that I normally would be more responsive to have slowed down a bit, but that would be true in any such circumstance. On the other hand, aren't my current responses normal, when the life changes I have experienced recently are taken into account?
Dear, dear readers, please let me know what you think!
