why I didn't answer the phone last night

Dear Mom, Dad, and Everybody:

I am in Atlanta. Now, I know you probably think this is a little irrational, but I drove down with Jason... would Jason have driven down with me if it was totally insane? He really wanted to go, and let's face it, I haven't had a good long road trip since late July. There's a good party going on tonight and I'm on fall break from classes next week, that's why we knew the trip would have to be this weekend. Hey, they wouldn't give us breaks if we weren't actually supposed to take one.

So anyway I know you'll be worried but so far I'm having the time of my life and I'm just taking a long weekend from work... I will not end up in the hospital or jail. I'm meeting lots of cool people and getting a good citizen's view of a city I've never seen before. I've already noticed how miserable the urban sprawl is here, which means I'll definitely be happy going home to Wichita when the visit's over.

Sarah, sorry I blew off your wedding. But the opportunity really wouldn't come any other weekend. You can blow off mine someday and I'll understand.

So anyway, yup, I'm fine! Don't worry about me! Hey, most kids do weird crazy stuff when they're kids and stupid and don't know how to be responsible. I'm old enough to know how to be responsible. 25 is really the perfect time for random stuff like this, am I right?

Love, Spacefem
