The cruel, cruel water

Agua, H20, water, whatever it is you want to call yourself, you are a cruel, cruel beast!

I know I left you for a little while, and you were probably a little bitter, but you knew I would be back. (Didn't you?) It was only 6 weeks or so, can't you show a little patience? After all, how many relationships came back anew and stronger after a brief reprise?

Now, I'm not blaming you entirely. After all, I know I need to get back to my committed ways, but even when I try to do the right thing, you send me different signals! How many times have I come to you, fresh, excited, and feeling ready for a breakthrough, only to have you hold me down, making me feel sluggish and terrible. Back when I would show up hungover, ready to apologize to you, you show pity, and clear the water ahead of me, as those I've been given a motor to do my intervals with.

I show up skinny and fit, and I'm slower. I sit around, get a little fat, and you make me faster. What's up with that?

Certainly, you have noticed me stand before you, reluctant to take the plunge, and I apologize for that. Certainly, I have made the plunge every time, but have some patience and let me jump in on my own terms. Sometimes it's a bit intimidating to do it. There is a bit of a shock to the system when you do that.

Still, you are cruel. When I try to accelerate our relationship, and go faster, you slow me down. When I try to take things slow, you make me fast. I wish you would just MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!!

Look, I'm sorry. And to show you how sorry I am, and how committed I will be to you, I'd like to ask you on a date. How does your schedule look for April 13th? There's this event in Phoenix that'd I'd like you to accompany me to. It won't be too much of your time, hopefully around 50 mins. It's a big party, a few thousand people. I think you'll enjoy it, and you'll meet a lot of people who will want to spend some time with you as well.

Please, let's get our relationship back on track. What do you say? Can you help me out here? I promise to see you more regularly, and pay more attention to the little things in our relationship. I think we can make this work.

See you soon.
