had a date last night. it was nice. going very slow. i'm not ready yet. it was still nice, though. we saw king arthur, had dinner, and then hung out at the coffee shop for a while just talking politics and relationships. she's 40, divorced with a kid, a smart, very pretty redhead, and i knew her a long time ago when i was dating her best friend. she told me last night that the reason her best friend asked me out was that she was about to. here's to second chances.
