Compare and Despair

Going up to visit an old childhood friend tomorrow: She met her now-husband her first week at Yale and they have two kids and a pool in Irvington, New York.

I'll try not to compare and despair but it will be difficult telling her about my plans to temp while she motions to the maid for more iced-tea and cucumber sandwiches.

You never know, she may be jealous of the fact you are a single and free NYC girl.
You know the grass is always greener.

TOTALLY!! For all you know she feels completely cemented into her life with no hope of parole.

I totally want cucumber sandwiches.

Yeah, and you know what else, cucumber sandwiches aren't that good. So, umm, yeah.
