Small Town Saturday Night


Last night I got all gussied up to go out on a date, but we couldn’t figure out what to do. I’m afraid that we’ve run out of places to go in our town. I literally was all dressed up and had absolutely nowhere to go. It’s funny, when I was younger I imagined my twenty-something self living as a single girl in the city. Going out with my 3 best friends — Samantha, Miranda, Charlotte– and living a glamourous city girl life. My life might be the polar opposite of that now. I dress up to go get chinese take-out. 
But if I think about it for long, it doesn’t bother me that I dress up to go eat chinese food with my husband. That my life was never made into a TV series, a good movie (and then a really bad one). That my 3 best friends aren’t named Samantha, Miranda or Charlotte. Or that somedays, normally the best days, I have nowhere to go. It hasn’t stopped me from getting dressed yet. 
Or calling myself Carrie from time to time.

    Rest assured, you are way ahead of the game. You get dressed up for chinese take-out! I complain about a 2 block walk to Chinese take-out. And I go in yoga pants. That way I can fit more lo mein into my belly. I'm a problem solver.
