Full Circle

Events of the past three weeks include: my boyfriend moving in, a week-long conference in Orlando, a belated divorce settlement, training in Mobile, death of a family member, bailing my son out of jail, my first $500 casino chip, more Bud Light than you could shake a stick at, assault and battery in a parking lot, followed by my boyfriend moving back out. And so begins the winter of our disconnect.

Boyfriends come and go bud Bud Light will always be there for you.

Thank God for the settlement so you were able to do the bailing. Were you the batterer or batteree? I have heard about succinct writing but this absolutely makes my head spin. So many questions, so little time.

Monty: that's probably half my problem.

Mom: Patrick was the batteree. I got a call from the police lieutenent at the hospital, so I'm here in Georgia now.

Erk. Sounds like your last live-in experience lasted about 7 times as long as mine. He moved in one day; I moved him out about 36 hours later. I don't know which one of us (him or me) was the more stupid. It was too embarrassing to write about but proved to me that it wasn't worth trying to create love with the wrong person.

I hope you're alright. Use the Bud thoughtfully, as Tim on Project Runway would say.

Flooz: thank you for my new favorite quote: "Use the Bud thoughtfully, as Tim on Project Runway would say."

36 hours? I hope he didn't have much furniture...

It is better to rent than to own love interests!
