Update and More Straight People Weirdness

Around here things have greatly improved...along with my state of mind. Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. It means more to me than I can express.

I'm happy to report that dad has greatly improved. Just a little over a week after having a stroke and given 2-3 days to live, he has now been transferred into the rehabilitation center and is improving daily. I talked to him on the phone this weekend and although his speech is still slurred, we can still carry on a decent conversation. He's bitching about the hospital food and staff so he's definitely on the mend. My brother and I moved his stuff out of his apartment Saturday in record time. My brother brought his son, step-son and a friend. Man those young guys sure can move! I didn't lift one heavy box or piece of furniture and we were finished in 3 hours.

A missed me like crazy while I was away (and the feeling was mutual) so she's been extra sweet and following me around with "google" eyes. This weekend I finally asked her why she was looking at me so goofy. She asked if I would rather have her leering at me. Well not really but then she laughed and said when she looks at me with those goofy eyes, she's looking at the woman she loves. When she looks at me with that leering look (which only happened one time when I was wearing a naughty Ms. Santa outfit) she looking at me like the naughty girl she wants me to be. UGH!!! She knows saying something like that could make me jump from a moving car and loves to get me embarrassed.

I wanted share another experience had while visiting my dad. I have been in some contact mostly via text with the old school friend who contacted me this spring. For the most part, the conversation is all about her (nothing new about that) but she knew I was in town and insisted we meet for dinner and drinks before I left to return home. Monday night I finally agreed. We had not seen each other in over 12 years but the night went okay and mostly I just sat there sipping my drink and listening to her babble on about her new boyfriend, not yet ex-husband and kids. I loved the fact her mom came to see me too since I practically lived at their home when I was a kid and she was like my second mom.

After her mom left, she started telling me how her new boyfriend wants to bring another man or woman into their bed. She's interested but nervous and he wants her to be the one to go out and find another woman to bring in. Earlier she had sent him a picture of the two of us and then he sends a message back asking if I wanted to "join them". Seriously, is there something tattooed on my forehead that says "hey, ask me and I'll do anything"! I politely declined and told them that I'm in a committed, monogamous relationship and have no desire to change that. I was too tired to say much more but when I returned home and shared the story with  A and other friends, I can't help but find myself more and more annoyed. Is this really what people think? Do they really believe we are all bed-hoppers, up for anyone, anyway, anyhow?

Its so great to hear that your dad is doing well. I just read your last post and it sounds like you have been through a lot lately! Hang in there, its a good thing you have so much love at home to help you through it all!

As for your ignorant friend bak home, I am always amazed by the assumptions made. I am baffled as to why people just assume that we have crazy kinky sex and are willing to share it with everyone! Just because our sex is better than yours doesn't mean we want to share it!! Go get your own lesbian! ;)

vixen kitten said... there pictures of you in this Ms. Santa suit?

Cuz, ya know. Ummmmmm. me, darlin. I have some spare cash sitting around!

I gotta go get this picture outta my head. Then I'll come back and reply to the threesome shit.

No. INTELLIGENT people do not think that. Obviously this woman is not too smart. And she's also rude. And weird.

People are just rude, odd and weird sometimes.

But I'm glad you are feeling better!!

I'm so glad to hear you're dad is improving! haha.. the best way to know is DEFINITELY when they start complaining about silly stuff again. I knew my dad was good when he started making jokes about the nurse everytime she left the room.

And wow.. about your old friend... I really don't understand people these days. And I agree that it sounds like she's maybe just not that smart. Plus... she obviously doesn't hold monogomy in high regard... so she must think that others don't either.

And again... as i always say.. reading about you and A is so cute and heart-warming. Gives me hope that I'll find my 'A' someday soon :)

I think that "sharing" shit is gross.

Love you.
