Middle Chapters

I taught my last seminar of the conference today.

The conference is over, the booths are packed up and the woman who I cannot stop thinking about has never been farther away.

Little Miss A* is sick. I am here in Vegas and she is home in Hoboken. I will go to the electronics store and buy some crazy wires, boards and components. Tonight I will invent the first fax machine that sends and receives soup.

Irk, she doesn't have a G.D. fax number....

Being apart from her now is supposed to be harder. Spending a weekend with her in my arms was suppose to be the tease that made me hurt more. I expected this past weekend to spoil us and make being apart again unbearable.

Don't get me wrong, I miss her. I wish she was here now. I closed my eyes for the 2+ hours that we talked tonight and imagined she was laying next to me while we chatted.

Crazy truth of it all - I don't miss her more now than before the weekend. Somehow I feel peaceful about the miles between us. Somehow this weekend gave me the greatest gift....

I believe.

I have faith.

Our being apart is now only a small technicality, not the major feature of our relationship.

We will be together.

How? I have no idea...

I don't know the details, I only know the big picture. I've only read the first chapter of our book but this weekend I peeked to the middle chapters and glanced at a few paragraphs.

I cannot explain why, but I know, deep down inside, what is coming in the chapters in our book. The chapters not yet read. The chapters not yet written.

No mother-effing shit, this is a great feeling.

(I have some other posts in drafts that I cannot get right. Funny crazy non-A* things about Vegas. I will get them up when they are ready)

...gotta go take care of a problem. There are too many stragers at poker tables in this town suffering from too many chips in front of them.

That is so nice to hear... you definitely are one lucky man. You both are. Not men of course but lucky.

Ahhhh! I love reading about you two. Especially, going from one blog to the other! Like you once said: "Yea Team" :-)

Wordwiz: You think my Soup Fax is clever? You should see my IPOD toothbrush!

Mr. Drinker: START EFFING BLOGGING. (he is my closest friend in South Florida and insanly talented. His blog would be on everyone's blogroll)

islandgirl: A* and I are retarded but in a cute sorta way, not a short-bus sorta way. Ok, I am retarded in a helmet sorta way.

Yes I am unbelievably lucky. Asian-bird flu and all! (kidding)
Mr. Drinker- I cannot wait to meet you when I come down to FL. And I agree with Hof- please start blogging. Half our conversations alone would make great posts and I have only had a few with you.
Island- Sorry if we are inciting a raging case of carpal tunnel. MooCow has already cursed us for it.
Yeah we are certainly not well. It cute but at times disturbing (well to others anyway)

At 11:21 AM, Blogger A* said...

And did anyone notice that Hof changed his log line?? :)
It's no longer "Single in South FL".
