Now It's up To Me to Bow out Gracefully

I was startled by a song:

Whenever you call me, I'll be there
Whenever you want me, I'll be there
Whenever you need me, I'll be there
I'll be around

It was my phone. I answered it:

"Hi, Stevie. Whatcha doin'?"

It was my mom. I answered her:

"Nothing. Just getting ready for bed."
"It's nine-thirty. On a Friday night, Stephen!"
"I know. I'm a swinger, ma."
"Yup. I'm putting myself out there. Maybe I'll meet someone."

You, my friend, are not alone. When I was a much younger, single woman working at a high stress job (magazine ad sales) I would welcome Friday nights just so that I could go home and collapse. Only if there was really something special happening would I go out on a Friday night. Fridays were a couple of drinks with the girls, maybe a quick bite to eat and then home. Pajamas! Cats! Falling asleep before the end of Letterman. Wait a minute, with some slight variation this is still what my Friday nights are like. See, it will all work out for the best. Sleep tight young man.
