Letting her go


I woke up that morning with a big head and a heavy body. Conversations mixed with the alcohol from the night before were still swirling in my head. Confetti in the breeze. A foggy mess. I needed to sort it all out, once and for all. I felt really tired, but I had slept for more than seven hours. That is much longer than the normal. Sitting down on the kitchen table, I picked up the newspaper and had a sip of my coffee. I scanned the headlines. After a few moments I put the paper down. I could not concentrate. Things were on my mind. Thoughts about last night, that woman in the bar, the Indian restaurant, that other woman still asleep on my bed, and all the fun we shared. I barely knew her, and just about remembered her name was Deepa. I better stop this habit, dragging strangers here every Saturday night, I thought as I quietly opened the balcony door and stepped outside, holding my coffee. The sun was up already, melting the chill on the air. I scanned the scene ahead of me. What a pretty picture that tree made, with the sun just behind it. My coffee and the melting chill woke me up even more. My head started feeling better. The confetti was settling and feelings were all falling to place, fog disappearing. I had to let her go. This seemed the right time. It was now or ever. I closed my eyes...

Morning, she said, as she stepped out wearing just my shirt, and stood next to me. I kissed her lips once more. What we doing for lunch?
Lunch? What lunch? We never signed up for lunch! Plus I was meeting Vassilis, my old mate, for yet another bout of backgammon over a few ouzos, for lunch. It was booked ages ago.
Suddenly, I felt I had to let her go, even more than a minute ago. Just couldn't, yet.
Sorry, I said. I am visiting my sick grandmother in hospital today. May be another time.
She gave me a look. One of those. She knew.
Well ok, maybe another time, she said smiling. Coffee smells nice.
Sit down, I go and get you a cup.
We sat down drinking the coffee and chatting for about an hour. I wanted to let her go a few times during our coffee chat. She was a nice woman. But not my type. Well my drunk type, evidently.

I was feeling annoyed, for making a pig of myself last night at the Indian restaurant. I had four onion baggies. And the rest! I love Indian food, but maybe I should not of had all those tasty onion baggies! My love for food affects my love life!
I really really needed to let her go. It seems my guardian angel was near by. Deepa started talking about her last holiday.
'I would love to see the photos, I said.
'I just go and get my phone she said, standing up.
I stood up and walked to the edge of the balcony.
I closed my eyes, relaxed, said my goodbye and I let her go!
Pffffffffffffffft
At once, I felt a different man, a happier person, the new me! I wanted to fart for ages!

You ok there?
The voice came from next doors balcony, John had sat on his bench for the last hour, unnoticed.
Are you under pressure, because you seem to be leaking, he said with a smirk on his face.
I am good, I like Indian food, but it does not like me much,I said, feeling my face getting red.

Deepa came back out and sat down. After showing me her holiday photos, we finished the coffee, said our goodbyes, and I seen her to the door. One last kiss, and she was gone.
I started running a bath for myself. It would be Monday again soon.
Why do I 'celebrate' Saturday? It is just 2 days away from the dreaded Monday. Should it not be Tuesday, which is six days away? I don't like Mondays, I thought as I climbed in the warm bath.

And a 'windy' joke

This post is for the topic that made second place, in the latest symposium vote for April. The topic was about Discomfort, Awkwardness, Embarrassment, Annoyance, Confusion or a mix of all. I paragraphed, in that sequence. I know 'hotels' got there by an extra vote, but a friend suggested I post this just for fun. I am now a happier person and the story was in my head.... I just had to let her go!

Thanx wicked! Really, thanx! The love story about a fart, oh the distorted sarcasm of it
The term is pyroflatulence, yeah of course I just googled it!
I call them cheapskates that don't wanna buy razors. I seen them when they singe the guy who is doing it, and they end up with balls looking like singed chicken!
I think I had enough of farts and singed balls for tonight

WHAT is wrong with you?
You'd rather go play backgammon then have MORE sex?

Even sex with someone who's not right for you is better than backgammon.

Hey goodatpoetry2. There was no sex on the agenda, just lunch and more yapp yapp yapp. Plus, you forfeit 10 points on the league standing, for not showing, on a booked bout, at Dimitris cafe! Thanx for dropping in.
