Once inside the car, she rattled off her address and, like Cinderella, was whisked back home away from the ball. This time there would be no happily ever after and no shoe left behind.
I’ve felt this way several times through the years.
She excelled at avoiding uncomfortable situations where she felt like her heart had relocated to inside her skull. Dating oddly was one of those scenarios. She didn’t really do casual dating. Her shortest relationship was six months and her longest one was three years. That one tore her apart and she still wasn’t sure if she was over the whole thing yet or not. Was she even ready to date again?
I feel like a lot of people struggle with this often. Myself included.
You’re right. I don’t believe you should have to out yourself so to speak just because you’re worried about your job. I mean, heterosexual people don’t go around saying ‘I just wanted you to know that I like men in case you have parents or students that think it’s wrong.’ I understand where you’re coming from, though. Maybe that’s why I’m a hard ass at times or don’t give a shit. Maybe I’m in a position where it doesn’t affect me as much. Were your parents cool when you told them?

N: LOL. Took me a minute. Why did you hang up?

P: I am a bird people eat.
I just really loved the chicken reference. I am forever going to use that instead. Can’t wait to see blank stares in my future.
