The Neighbour

So, I’m still drunk and it's only a few minutes after I’ve written the last post about online dating. Also, I won't publish it until tomorrow. I opened another beer bottle and my brain came up with a crazy idea:

What if I wrote a paper letter and put it into her mailbox? I know it sounds absurd and it probably is a really strange idea. I also feel like it could be a little bit creepy. But would it be easier? I don’t know.

As long as I’m drunk, it sounds like a great idea and I’ve almost got enough courage to do it, but the still straight thinking part of my brain says no. It feels almost like I’m split in half.

Also, I’m thinking about telling a female coworker. I think I’ve got a pretty good relationship with her and maybe I could ask her about how crazy I’m or my idea is. I also sent the online dating article to a good friend of mine (and also a coworker). I don’t think he will respond until tomorrow.

I will let the thought sit for now and enjoy the rest of Liam Nesson in “A walk among the Tombstones” which is playing since before I started writing the last and this post. Did I mention self-reflecting works better drunk?
