If I were having coffee with you I would beam at you a leisurely self-assured smile, because this time you would find me waiting.
I would ask you how you’ve been, with a joking, “Well, what took you so long?” You would laugh and settle down to make your order. If we were having coffee together, you would probably ask me when, on these dates, I would ever actually order a cup of coffee.
I would tell you that what I drink on these dates doesn’t matter, because my taste in warm beverages is as eclectic as my taste in just about anything. Not to say I’m flighty but rather that once I find a new obsession I go all in, but ‘adulting’ takes up so much of my time these days.
“Let’s be honest for a minute,” I’d say.
“Ignore my cheery disposition just for a moment because I have a confession. I don’ wanna.’
You’d probably look at me slightly quizzically then understanding would fill your face.
“Why, that’s understandable,” you’d exclaim, “You have Monday blues.”
Slightly exasperated I would explain to you that my Blues have nothing to do with Monday thank you very much and that all I want to do sometimes is climb back into bed and not have to get into the hang of this thing they call adulthood.
Lets all be honest for a moment here. We have ALL thought about cashing in our adult card and letting someone else take care of the bills, the work, the decisions, really we have. I’ll let you in on a little secret. It happens to the best of us.
In case you were waiting for something sweet or a pick me up, I’m sorry to say that is isn’t that kind of post. =) (we’re all struggling lol). The best I can say is that you’re not alone and that a lot of us “fail to even” with the adult life at the best of times. I do believe though that one day we’ll get it right (if ever there is such a thing).
