I have a post-it note on my desk that says “BED BY 11PM”. It’s been there for 2 nights. Last night it didn’t work. Tonight I simply must sleep. There are dark circles under my eyes and I want to feel great for my date tomorrow night.
I’m super excited to have a real grown-up date where a) we can go out somewhere and b) not have to worry about locking my door and c) be able to hang for a little bit in the morning together.
We are having dinner at my favorite Italian food restaurant at the end of my street – Tony wanted Italian food so I made the suggestion. Then bowling or some other adventure. We are both excited.
But before sleep, here are a couple of tidbits from my week so far:
The last two nights the Comedian has texted me with some very romantic overtures. This morning I woke up to “You are so beautiful”.
It doesn’t feel right, so I need to figure out whether to tell him that I’m exclusive with someone else or find a way to keep the interactions just friendly.
You see, he’s in a different city for probably a year. Our pattern, for 26 years now, has been that we are in contact for a little while then he disappears. So I don’t know if it’s worth having the conversation – but I can’t continue with him being romantic and me not telling him.
And in case you all think I’ve gone just soft and mushy about being exclusive with Tony… this week I had lunch with a man who has worked at my company a few times, as a contractor. We met at a work function. He is literally 7 feet tall. And bald, as pretty much all the men I’ve dated have been. I knew from the night we met he had a girlfriend, but we liked hanging out and so have kept in touch off-and-on since then. No flirting.
This was the first time we’ve gotten together since that party. It was a fun lunch. But here’s the thing…I couldn’t help wondering whether a 7 foot tall man would be larger in all ways. Ahem. I would try to get the thought out of my head, and it kept popping back in (hey, Ann…wonder how big his cock is….look at his hands…).
Oh yeah, and tomorrow I’m filing the affidavit for my divorce. Uncontested, easy peasy. I guess I know Will and I are doing okay when he’s fine with me going into his house tomorrow after I drop our son off to school, opening up the safe, and getting our marriage certificate.
What should I take from his house?
