Well, of all the surprises. Today I had communciation by email with my aforementioned perfect woman when I had thought all was lost for good. Not to say that the previous relationship status is back in place. I know it ain't and never will be, but to go from complete despair to having some hope of repair to the point of, well, maybe a friend status has totally rocked my ass. I was sure I was persona non gratis, or whatever that Latin phrase is for "unwelcome person". Maybe the nights won't be so dreary any more after all. Maybe.
