The important thing is, I'm getting out.
The ironic thing is, there are fewer roaches lately.
The sad thing is, my massage table is still missing. Stolen. Whatevs.
Oh, did I tell you? I don't think I did. Well, let me tell you. The other day I learned that when my roommate is naked and walks through the house with a bath towel around her, it does not cover all the things I would rather not see.
So the Pantsless Wonder is having a party Thursday night. At one point she had said, "I mean, you live here, so, if you want to join in, of course, I'm not going to say no..." and of course I took from that subtle turn of phrase that it would be happier for all if I found something else with which to occupy my time for the evening. Gladly. And I know it's a big deal for her so I am making sure my boxes and whatnot are out of the way, and that my packing is done.
So I made the mistake of asking this woman with whom I have yet to have a non-awkward, non-irritating conversation with, if there were a certain chunk of time she was planning the dinner for, so I would know how long to occupy myself, because I'll probably want to get to bed at a decent hour.
PW: Well, I mean, it's a whole evening. It's a party. It's a Christmas party.
DN: Is there a time when you think it would peak? Like dinner time? Because I can make sure I'm out there so it's not awkward.
PW: Well. Yeah. That would be weird. It would be great if you weren't here then.
DN: That's why I'm asking. When do you think that would be?
PW: Well, I mean. I don't know. People are coming from work, and some people might spend the night.
DN: Any idea of a start or end time?
PW: Well, I mean, it's a party.
DN: That's cool.
PW: I mean. I just. I told people to get here at 6:30, so. I mean. I don't know.
DN: Got it.
PW: I just. I don't know what to tell you. It's a party.
DN: Okay. No worries.
It actually went on much longer than that, but I want to spare you the horror.
Have I mentioned my boss aka The Olympian and his girlfriend are coming to this party? They went to college together.
I'm just gonna come and go as I please and be myself.
