Week of August 20, 2007
I finally made it out to Albuquerque this past weekend to visit Bob (name changed). How sad that a weekend that a weekend that started off with so much potential ended so badly.

I guess I should not have been too surprised. Our conversations, which had previously been quite good, had become rather burdensome for me. Whereas, the words flowed between the two of us, I had begun to feel like I was doing all of the work to prop up our verbal exchanges.

I got a lukewarm hug when I greeted him just outside of baggage claim; the amount of warmth toward me continued to drop all weekend. By the time I exited on Sunday, temperatures were positively frigid. On Saturday day, we went to dinner and a movie. Bob read a paper during dinner and shifted his body away from me at the movies.

On Sunday, I had Bob drop me off at the airport three hours early; I wanted to escape the tedium of our interaction that badly. I gave him a handshake goodbye and had to restrain myself from skipping inside, so great was my glee in escaping what had been a painfully boring weekend.

The last laugh was on me. There were no other open flights from Albuquerque to my airport so I ended up having to sit for three hours anyway. I must say, though, that I infinitely preferred people watching to watching Bob squirm his way through our weekend.
