missed connections

how was your weekend?  
was pretty good
 there were some glitches

  I had planned to go with my sister
a cat 
I thought
I might
 if the 
 was there


 what do I mean

  Let me explain
 we have had 4 cats in our lives
four times
 a cat
 animal lovers
 how that works

 in the end
 I didn't get to meet him
 there were some glitches
 that may still get resolved
 we'll see

I went to meet my friends Judy and Larry for brunch
 I took the subway
all of 10-15 minutes
 to get from 79th Street to 50th Street
of course
 it didn't

 I got to the station
 just as a train
 was leaving

another missed connection

 the sign said 
next local
12 minutes

 after 7 minutes
 an announcement
we stand back from the edge of the platform the train was not stopping 

 the next train
 would be along
 in 6 minutes

 I ended up exiting at 50th Street at 12:30
 walked quickly to the restaurant 
 no one

just then
 my phone beeped
 two missed calls and a text from Judy
 she was lost 
had the wrong address
where was I? 

turned out 
she was only a block away

 now it was 12:45
no sign of Larry
 our reservation was for 12:30
 texted and called
 he texted back
he wasn't feeling well
 he had emailed her
 to say
 he wasn't coming
 she hadn't gotten the email

more missed connections

 we decided to have brunch 

I walked 
to the Flea Market
 heading home
who has a terrible cold 

he shared
 I am now fighting

I hope
 was more fulfilling

thanks coming along
