I'm not quite sure where to begin. I was about to write about the couple I met at The Palms on Saturday night; apologize to the guy and explain myself just when I saw this comment. Read below:
"Well... saw you at the Palms and excitedly told wifey that this was the Thelma that I read her blog and send her links to on the regular. Then I came up to say hi to you, but felt you were a bit cold initially (or was it just me). I had to quickly chip in that I was here with my wife to see a movie (and point her out) in case you thought I was tryna hit on you. Only then did you muster a smile. Lol. As I walked a way, I couldn't help wondering why I bothered... although I acknowledge it may just have been the wrong time or you had stuff on your mind, after all you aren't obliged to do/say anything. PS: had to be anonymous for this comment".
Anon, I was going to write about meeting you yesterday but decided to include it in my first post for today. But after reading your comment I have to make it a post all by itself.
After I met you I immediately called sasha boné and told her I just met a blog reader and I feel terrible because I think i might have been cold. When Uyi came to my house yesterday I told him so too. Both of them agreed I should post about it and apologize, and I'm doing just that now.
Yes, I could have been warmer and more welcoming. I normally am not that way (ask any of the other blog readers who have approached me, they can vouch for me. LOL) but I was having a moment. When you tapped my shoulder you literally brought me out of a reverie, and I couldn't recover quickly enough. Truly it was when I turned and saw your wife that I had to muster a smile, especially because I felt quite guilty. Everything I say now would sound like an excuse, and with each passing month I learn to share less and less of my personal dealings/issues on the blog. So I can't even go into all that here, but the truth is that it just wasn't the best moment.
I appreciate more than you know, you coming to talk to me, I gushed on and on to Uyi about "the cute couple I met at The Palms yesterday" and how your wife is so adorable and so young! I'm so sorry I came off cold and unwelcoming. Unfortunately some times some circumstances we find ourselves in make it difficult for us to be genial, even when we want to be.
Please extend my apology and my regards to your wifey!
I hope it's accepted? Please say yes. Please!
Blog readers please help me apologize, and I promise to make amends and not let situations get the better of me.
