Salad for Thought

I rarely take a break to eat at work, let alone surf the web or blog. But today I'm eating my salad at my desk, and it occurs to me just how exhausting it is to be angry at someone, avoiding them at all costs. Especially when I have no real idea where the friendship ended. Just one day, it clearly had ended. And now I have to walk an extra two hundred steps a day to avoid it. And the under-the-breath mutterings I make all day long... that's probably starting to make me look like a lunatic. More than usual lunacy.

Along those same lines, I cannot fathom how difficult a divorce would be. You live with someone for years/decades, then they are gone, and you have to avoid them at all costs? How many extra steps a day does that entail?

So Jason, like it or not, you get to stay married to me forever. If not for the deep love I feel for you, then for the sheer laziness ...I do not want to rebuild a city, or take more steps than necessary. You're stuck with me, homeboy.

Lol- I tease Kurt about this all the time- that he's stuck with me! Especially now with the triplets coming I tease I have him for 18 years (like the Kanye West song)- lol. Of course I'm absolutely nuts about the guy but it's still fun to tease.

Sorry you're having to take so many extra steps these days. Did you use their kitchen sponges incorrectly? :P Seriously though, that is a hard thing to deal with.

And I feel the same way. Tim is SO stuck with me. And he is stuck with me. Bwah-ha-ha!
