One of Those People

February 3, 2010

Yesterday my friend Hanyun asked when we could get together for lunch and I did something I’ve never done before.

I pulled out my planner.

I flipped opened to this week and scanned through the days and responded something like this:  “Um, well, let’s see, I’m in town Wednesday for lunch, and Thursday I have to meet that speaker, and Friday is booked. I’m gone this weekend and next weekend…I might possibly be able to squeeze in a double lunch on Wednesday, but I don’t know about that. My supper times are all full….”

Afterwards I couldn’t believe it. Not only am I filled and overflowing, which I dislike, but I have also turned into one of them. You know- those people who are always pulling out their planners and checking and scheduling and actually keeping track of where and when and with whom, etc.

I guess it was bound to happen sometime.
