I Apologize

To Pingers Rob and Sarah—I apologize. Deeply. I’m really sorry that I didn’t show up for our dinner date because I assumed that since we never firmed up plans, that meant that we weren’t going to meet at the restaurant. And I’m extra sorry for making it sound like your fault when you found me in the parking lot at work and asked me about it… I shouldn’t have implied it was your fault. Anyway, I hope your dinner at the Thai place was good.

This brings up the question, though: should I really be apologizing for something that happened in a dream?

Yes. Yes, you should. You bastard.

See if I ever make dream plans for dream dinner with you again.

As long as you can't prove the difference between dream and reality, yes, you should apologize.

In high school, my girlfriend once got mad at me for something that I did in *her* dream. I was dumbfounded.

In the words of Neil Finn, don't dream it's over.

I've been waiting years to say that.

By the way, is this your way of saying you wanna go out to dinner some time? I do owe you $10...

What is this then?
