I'm back in North Carolina for one more week before my return to New York City, but not until my sister-in-law reminded me of something... An old friend from High School in 1993 who I really wanted to ask out on a first date... Ah yes, her name is Kira. Really nice girl. Smart, good-looking, just right for the neutrality that is North Carolina.

Well, I called the folks in her home to see if she's there. Nope. She's still out in college. My sis-in-law said her neighbor passed on a note that she is in town. I'll have four or five days to clear this mess.

As always, I'll be nervous for this occasion because Kira is one of those girls who I would want to date but I'll not admit to it.
