Tomorrow May Never Come

Back in March while I was in Mesa, Arizona I telephoned a “friend” in the Toledo, Ohio area and asked if he’d like to get together over coffee when I returned to Toledo in April.

Then in April, shortly after my return, in another telephone conversation, my “friend” said “I’ll call you on Monday and we’ll meet for coffee.” A month has passed, and no call.

That is not the first time that same thing or something similar has happened to me, not only from this “friend” but from others, friends and relatives, as well.

How many times do people say “I’ll call you tomorrow” or “I’ll see you tomorrow” or “We’ll get together soon” or any other number of things like that? And then, nothing more happens.

    Mi Amigo,

    You made me feel guilty that the 3 Amigos have yet to gather at the Cantina. I know that there are busy schedules for all, and I seem to be spending far too much time living out of a suitcase; but since you have driven the point home is such a dramatic way this will need to happen.
