Just FYI, this is what "whelp" actually means.

  1. Alas, I have not whelped, nor have I acquired a whelp. But I did get an email from He Who Is Most Easily Described as My High School Sweetheart, whom I have not seen in maybe 15 years or more. So, dude is in town for business purposes and has intimated he will buy me lunch and/or drinks (oh yes there will be drinks), so we're trying to figure out where and when to meet on Fri. So I'm trying to figure out how to pull myself together long enough to look successful for an afternoon. Things are all amicable, you understand, but somehow I still feel I should be putting my best face forward. Because it will still be weird.
