By The Way...

I have a lunch date next Friday. Followed by a pedicure and the construction of smores bars.

Yes I said construction.

Anyone who has made something similar will know. Sandwiching a layer of chocolate and marshmallow puff between two layers of graham cracker dough is no easy task.

Sometimes I would rather build the Hoover Dam.

For reals!

That marshmallow puff is like glue, it sticks to freaking everything. My trick is to use two spoons and constantly dunk them into water to keep them slippery.

But the effort is worth it. They are super yummy and gooey, it is putting them together is the only hard part. The dough takes less then ten minutes to make including time to crush the graham cracker into crumbs.

Then you bake for 30-35 minutes. They are rather simple but difficult to assemble.

But I digress.

The reason for this post is the lunch date.

See I am meeting my friend J for lunch.

She is the one I mentioned here.

I know she has some inclination that something is going on but I don't know what. She is very high on my list of people to disclose to but I wonder if this is the right time.

I also really do want to tell her.

She is one of the very few people who got to see a little bit of me. As in the real me.

I hid behind at lot of bluster and false bravado in addition to my sense of humor.

Yet I got to relax a bit with her. I found a friend who was a woman and I cherished that immensely.

If there is anyone I am afraid of losing. I mean really afraid, it is her. She has been too dear a friend over the years.

I think I am going to play this one by ear over the course of the lunch. I have a feeling that she might bring up the topic herself anyway.

Who knows really. Someone very wise once told me that I cannot expect anything regarding disclosure. Everyone is a guess and those that you think are going to not like it won't have an issue. Those that you think will be able to handle it won't.

I have a feeling I have a lot of posting to do the week after next what with that. Along with B's cookout the day after.

It should be an interesting 72 hours.

Could be an interesting lunch.

I think that the playing it by ear thing sounds like a good idea. Good luck with it.

Hope it goes well girl. Sometimes you just have to feel it out but sometimes people will surprise you too.
