Lulz. Yeah, I understand the awkwardness. It is mutual. Sure, I will think of something or perhaps you will. We will make this work some time. Just for the record I am super jealous of you going to that event. Oh, is there a certain kind of cuisine you really like? I've been on a "try new restaurants" bender. If I find one that fits with what you like I might invite you to lunch...totally not a date. ;)
Oh! Oh! I want to and I do so dearly love Powell's but the 18th is bad for me. I have two doctor appointments and a Frank's Noodle House date. I'm sorry. That does sound really interesting though and I would like to meet you. We will have to work something out for a different time.
I just wanted to say thank you for sharing so much about your grandpa in the one thread about parents. I appreciate how you gave such a very fair and personal description of him, it made him seem very real to me -- he wasn't perfect, but it was clear you guys had something authentic in your relationship and he meant a great deal to you.

I think I may have to use that deliciously delightful run-on sentence as my new signature. :D If you do not object, of course.
