We really must catch up sometime.

15 Feb

Did I tell you that I’ve got a full time job? A most marvellous job in a most marvellous organisation stumbled upon most unexpectedly.

No? Goodness. I should have told you that.

Did I tell you that I am learning Arabic? Which pleases the lads no end, especially when they’re helping me with my homework.

No? Well, I am. I can’t believe I didn’t mention it.

Did I tell you that I’ve got a piece in the soon-to-be-launched, and I think it’s almost in your bookstore Kill Your Darlings journal?

I didn’t tell you that either? Oh. It really has been a while, hasn’t it?

    Yay for you. Three great pieces of news.

    Yes, let’s catch up soon…

    Yeah, man. You totally forgot to mention all that stuff. What gives? Don’t you like us anymore?

    And why am I not the least bit surprised?

    Hooray, hooray, hooray! So especially pleased to hear about your job. That should make a big difference in day-to-day life in Abu Dhabi, I imagine.

    And I should tell you that a very good publisher with an advance copy of that journal recently told me that she particularly loved your piece and thought it was the stand-out. For political reasons I can’t pick favourites, but let’s just say I was unsurprised …

    You have been busy! I was flirting with the idea of learning Arabic but you know…that seemed like too much hard work….and then I had a baby….
