You call in sick at work the next day (which may seem irresponsible, but perhaps the context makes up for that). \n----\nBay and Bloor isn't too far from your area. The walk there helps you shake off some of the anticipation but not completely. \n\n<<if ($friends eq 0) or ($rm eq 0)>>\nYou feel bad for neglecting your <<if $friends eq 0>>friends<<endif>><<if ($friends eq 0) and ($rm eq 0)>> and <<endif>><<if $rm eq 0>>roommates<<endif>> lately. You haven't connected with them in a while.\n<<endif>>\n----\nWhen you get there, you figure the guy sitting alone awkwardly is Matt. \n\nThe conversation goes kind of awkwardly and in the end it was an hour of you trying to engage him and not getting much back from it. \n\nHe's leaving the next day but you're able to get his phone number and address so if anything you can at least send him things for special occassions. \n\nYou leave the Starbucks feeling a little unsatisfied, but at least you were able to connect with him. Family is family and maybe one day you'll be able to move further than this. \n\nThe End. \n\n
