MIDLIFE FRIENDS TALK - REALITY CHECK PART 1
We make the decision to have The Big Talk with a friend (or two).
We carefully plan and prepare.
From invitation to aftermath, The Big Talk goes smoothly.
We cannot plan or prepare for everything.
*Expect the unexpected.
You invite your friend to meet.
Your friend agrees - no questions asked.
Your friend asks questions.
*why, what, how come
*etc. etc. etc.
Finally, the day of The Big Talk Arrives.
You flawlessly express your feelings concerning the friendship.
The unexpected happens.
*You forget your reading glasses and can't read your notes.
*Surprise. At the last minute, your friend (or you) has to cancel.
*The Talk gets interrupted by a neighbor who stops by to chat.
*... and so on.
