hell to the no

Sometimes I look at a person (literally and figuratively) and wonder just what the ever lovin’ fuck they are thinking. Today it was a figurative look. An unexpected friend request on Facebook waited for me this morning when I logged on. It was from someone I haven’t spoken to in over 12 years. It was […]

a little bit of backstory So WAY back in a day, before electricity and wheels the internet and cell phones, I was a teenager. It was 1988, an era of neon, hair bands, Walkmans, and Swatches. I was a senior in high school and in the DEP (Delayed Entry Program) for the US Army Reserves. […]

A couple weeks ago, I told the story of the soldier and the… personal item. I mentioned the amnesty room in that post, telling you it was a story for another day. I lied. It’s actually a collection of stories for several days. Today is one of those days. So the amnesty room… there were […]

If there is one thing I’m good at, it’s putting myself in embarrassing situations. It’s a gift. Or a curse. This particular event took place in 1989, when I was a young girl of not quite 19. In the present time, I am just two months shy of 51. What you should take from this […]

Grudges

I pride myself on being open-minded and forgiving, but I am definately having issues with the ex-husband.  I didn’t think any of the drama with him bothered me any more, but I am beginning to think that I was fooling myself, that it was just a matter of out of sight, out of mind.  At […]

Hmmm,….

Hmmm,….

Maybe I am just being overly cynical and suspicious.  I don’t know.  I guess it is hard to guage the attitude and motivation behind an online conversation, especially when that conversation is with someone you haven’t seen since they were very young and therefore hardly know.  But the whole tone of the conversation just kind of […]
