I was supposed to meet up with a blog reader who is in town today and like an idiot I totally spaced it. Good lord, I feel about as tall as an ant hill right now. I hate when people are no-shows so I make an effort NOT to be a flake.
Even worse, he sent me a very polite email afterwards. Not a hint of anger or resentment. Nice, but I feel even more like a heel now. Ugh!
I can be very absent-minded about things, especially appointments. To prevent myself from spacing, I usually write everything in my calendar.1 Naturally, I didn’t add my little get together today. The irony here is something has been nagging me at the back of my mind all day. poof! Now I know.
Anyway, I called him and he graciously agreed try again. God love’em for putting up with me.
*Update* – we met up later in the evening and had a great time talking over dinner.
