Last night, I spent the evening in Manhattan with two of my favorite high school friends. It reminded me so much of this past summer where I practically lived with JB - hanging out with him and his bro, drinking and running around the city. It was just as much fun last night. Dinner and a discussion of my inability to break free from Tech Guy started off the night. Then some drinks at his apartment followed by heading over to the Meatpacking District to dance at G2, this spot we used to frequent. Of course we were the darkest motherfuckers on the planet there, but we had a good time dancing without giving a shit what anyone had to say. Then I bounced and went back to LI.
While in the lounge I heard two songs in a row that reminded me of Mock Trial and the Banker. I know I've talked about the Banker in my old blog and personal friends know of him but the quick story is this. The Banker and I went to school together and had a long flirtation followed by a brief fling. He was one of the only men at school that actually managed to hold my attention and the way things fell out, I got pretty burned and bitter and awful. It was not a pleasant experience, but I've always cared for him even though I acted like a hellion when things went sour. He now works as an i-banker in NYC and I always toy with the idea of calling him up when I'm there, but I decided against it in November.
Anyway. I just decided to text message him while I was riding the train home cuz I needed something to distract me from the drunkards on the train and Tech Guy had gone to bed hours earlier. So I told him I'd heard his favorite song and thought I'd say hey. We texted back and forth for about 30 min - chatting, making fun of each other, the usual banter. I may try and catch up with him on Monday or Tuesday. We'll see how ambitious I feel. But the thing is, even if he pulls his normal flaky shit I think I'll be fine because I've finally moved on with my life. Plus I already have two men giving me grief, the last thing I need to do is rehash the past. So if the mood strikes me, I'll put in the effort. If not, I won't. Wow, that's refreshingly healthy for me.
New Years recap and resolutions post to follow tomorrow!
