Pink Elephants

So I'm sitting with a friend. I like her quite a bit, though I don’t know her all that well. But let’s face it, there is nothing I should be uncomfortable about. I respect and trust her.

She's been on my mind for the several days before we sit together and I've got some questions, some things not exactly troubling me but that I'm wondering about. Yet, we sit, we shoot the shit. I pretend that all we need to discuss is the dress I am fitting for her. I think she pretends the same.

Frankly, I've let myself down. I could have been the strong person I'm trying to becoming and yet, I took the path more oft traveled. And now I'm kicking myself for having to make a special appointment to discuss what it is I would like to discuss. How irritating.

Terror got the better of me this time.
