Things didn’t go the way I wanted them to, tonight. I am downcast now. Events like such always happen in the rain. There is nowhere that I can turn to. I can only stay here, endure, and make the best of it. It’s an experience and another story I can tell. I had been planning to tell her all week. I remembered her telling me her favorite brand of chocolate, and I went out of my way to find a box. I walked into her office. She could feel it. Oh, her circumlocution…It was a tawdry evening for me.
