I was going to meet a friend in town for lunch on Monday. He cancelled because he had a tradie coming to do some work and had to get his car serviced. Fine. Rearranged for today, but today he has an upset stomach.
I know full well what this is about. He has had a better offer of some sort. I suspect sex is involved.
As I am feeling a little hurt and mighty annoyed, and I have known him for about ten years, I think the loss is more his than mine because I am terribly busy in the near future. Can I afford to play a hard to get type and petulant at my age? You betcha.
