Despite hardships, I have to admit I’ve had a decent life, at least I’ve carved and continue to carve one for myself. I’m grateful I’ve done an accomplished some amazing things, had great experiences. There’s plenty of wiggle room for people, places, things and experiences that I’d like to have and thought I’d have by now. “Au contraire,” said Life. “You’re gonna take X, Y, and Z, and roll with it.” And that I have. It hasn’t always been easy, but I make it work, usually after some tear-shed.
Despite the grief and it still being a pandemic—actually New York was declared to be in a tridemic—covid, flu, and RSV, all of which fuck with your lungs—I went on plenty of Sher Dates. I didn’t bother to list them all here. No point in doing that. But I’m not letting not having my Someone hold me back from doing and experiencing things.
I have a Life To Do List that I plan on attacking with as much fervor as I can. Unfortunately, I’ll never get to see a taping of The Daily Show hosted by Trevor Noah (loved his memoir). Homeboy abruptly quit after seven years. A co-worker and I had discussed attending together pre-covid. Caroline’s on Broadway shuttered its doors forever this week. Thank goodness I caught one of the final shows this week with Michael Che as headliner. It was a Sher Date, as was my annual trek to Rockefeller Center to see the tree and Saks light show.
