I Get Up

I’m congested. I’m naked. And I’m late getting dressed to go see some Charlie Kaufman play at UCLA. More importantly, I just realized that I don’t give a shit about going to the Nexus retreat. A year ago — or even a month ago — I wouldn’t have though I would have forgone a free weekend of beer with my former co-workers. But I have two new jobs now and I just don’t have time to pretend I’m still in college. I like that paper, but at some point I’m going to become that guy who used to be quarterback hanging out in the parking lot after school gets out. And everyone’s happy to see him but wondering if he has something better to do.
