For instance, Friday's dinner party had me seeing an ex-gf that I haven't seen for eons. Everybody had already started eating and I just fig'd she would be a no show. But I intended to stay til the end. Finally she pops her head in and announces that she could only stay awhile.
I did send her a txt msg, after all, warning her that I'd be there. I say warning because i knew she was reluctant to meet with me as I had attempted to request dinner/lunch/coffee by phone when I last spoke to her in 07.
She greeted the honoree, said hello to some of the other peeps in the room--I caught her eye glancing my way from time to time--and then asked "Where's Chuck?" Her other co-worker, i guess. She couldn't have possibly meant that to be directed at me, about Charles Gapusan.
I hesitated as she seemed to be headed out, and got up to walk close enough to extend me hand "it's nice to meet to you again". Then she stepped out of the small room to look for Chuck (another member og the honoree's invitees.) I guess she found him because she ended up coming back into the dining room. I like to think that all Chuck and Ana spoke about were simple hellos and catching up idle chat.
So the couple are talking amongst themselves, in the restaurant where I ate tonight. He says, "Just look at him" and suddenly I'm imagining Chuck's words to Ana that convinced her to come back into the dining room room were "Just look at him", which might explain her obnoxious behaviour in acknowledging my presence. She posed no interest of knowing anything at all and simply described her children and her mom's condition to Chuck and his wife.
