I went on three dates in one day today.

Crazy, yeah? I think so.

One was sad. Berlingirl showed up unexpectedly - a nice surprise. I spent some time with her before she had to catch her flight. She said, I wish you a wonderful fall. (Ich wunsche dir einen wunderschonen Herbst).

I don't think she knows how much that meant to me.

One was random. She gave me her digits and said, It was nice meeting you (Wo hen gaoxing renshi ni).

I've already lost the piece of paper - of course.

The last?

It was sad in a completely different way. She said, May you have a good year (L'shanah tovah tikatev v'taihatem).

She said once that she hated the disappointments. Tonight, she said, in a manner of speaking, I'm working through a few things.

Funny, it sounds different on the other end. She put on her blue jacket. Gave me a red kiss. Hopped into a yellow cab. And was gone in a green light.

Why, look at that. The weekend's almost here.

Music: Then she said, Don't get cute
