When someone cancels plans that you didn't want to have in the first place

When someone cancels plans that you didn't want to have in the first place


It is almost time for me to move again to Northern California. I have a new place up there, and it came just in time to avoid the coldness up there. Here in LA we had a 79 degree F Christmas Day, while NorCal suffered a 28 degree morning.

But with little time to meet up with friends before I leave again, there are lots of plans flying around. From early morning hikes, to new coffee shop visits. But every once in a while, I lose the drive to want to leave the house.

Do any of you guys get that too?

Like I could just sleep all day, without changing out of my pajamas, making trips to the fridge every time commercials come on television.

Usually the friend will send a text, asking at what time we should meet.. and I refuse to reply right away. So I stare at my phone for a good 10 minutes, wondering if there is anything I could say that would get me out of it. I almost wish for a secret code word that would be a major hint to someone that says “nope, I don’t wanna go but I’ll do it because I’ll feel bad if I cancel”.

Then I feel minor anxiety because I’m not returning the text and the friend has decided to call. It is ringing. Blah! Oh well, let’s just do this…

But every once in a while, there is luck floating in the air.

“Hey man. I won’t be able to make it”

“Oh, that’s too bad. Next time, I guess.”


“No worries, dude.”

Seriously, no worries.
