(Update at the end…)
Hm. Okay. Need a little advice.
It’s my birthday today, right? And S.S. asked me the other morning at coffee what I was doing for my birthday and I said that I was just going to go to work and lay low. He was disappointed by that and told me that I couldn’t do nothing on the night of my BIRTHDAY and he insisted on taking me to dinner. He’d figure out a nice place to go.
I said okay.
Cut to just a few minutes ago. Instead of a text wishing me a happy birthday, he asked if we could switch my birthday dinner to tomorrow night because of a flu shot he got on Saturday??? He’s slept all weekend and yada yada.
My initial reaction is to just tell him to forget the whole thing.
This is the second time he’s blown me off. The first time was for the tax deadline that he probably knew he wasn’t going to be able to make, and now…which, I don’t want to see him anyway if he’s not feeling well, and maybe that’s just what I’ll say. But the thing is, he has YET to actually propose a place to meet and to follow through. Every time I’ve seen him have been at venues and times of my suggestion.
Maybe I’ll say something like, hey, I think maybe we should wait until you’re feeling 100%, so let’s not lock in tomorrow night so there’s no expectation. Feel better.
What a bummer.
UPDATE!!! I answered his text accordingly (kind of a combination of a few noters’ words of advice): “Hey, well, that’s a bummer! Was really looking forward to it. Why don’t you follow back up with me when you’re feeling 100%.”
He replied (a couple of hours later), “So I’m feeling better today…wasn’t sure if you’re ok with that. If so, I can do tonight or we can wait until one night later this week”
What the FUUUUU???? I haven’t replied to that one. I have NO idea what that means. Now he’s okay? Like, make up your mind. I’m not playing this game.
