Next….A Funny Thing Happened…Chapter 2…

ImageI mostly hate talking on the phone so I opted for the door.  It was someone unfamiliar, a stranger, and yet not so unfamiliar.  In a way I couldn’t quite put my finger on, he looked like someone I should know.  A stranger lurks outside my door – and why not?  Seems to be a pattern developing here.

Once I reached the door I hesitated – a dramatic gesture I might add; hand poised to grasp the door knob – yet not quite there.

I felt alone.  Or maybe I just recognized my “alone-ness” with a startling clarity.  What if this turned out to be someone to be avoided?  I didn’t really expect him to be a threat to me physically, but if he was connected to the letter delivered this morning, it was likely to be a not so pleasant encounter.

Deep breath and release.  Grab the door knob.  Grab onto the adventure.

Who am I kidding?  I think adventure is highly over-rated.  Give me a soft summer night on my own front porch and a good book, possibly a pet of some kind in the vicinity, and I’m good.  In fact, I’m positively giddy at the prospect.

I do not go gently into adventure, neither do I go willingly, so it is begrudgingly that I pull the door open and I “accept” to be surprised.
