We've had a drought all summer here in this little Carolina hamlet and the lake is almost bone dry. I've never seen anything like it. So Mother Nature decided to toss our otherwise hot and sunny weather for some cold, windy, super-rainy weather - without much of a warning. Of course it's October and everyone here is in this weird space of wearing flip flops by day and boots by night. All of this adds up to a quick chest cold that hit yours truly.
I've been fighting it for days and I think I beat it. Have I found a cure to the common cold? Maybe. How awesome would that be? I could change the PSO on my biz cards to read Pneumonia Specialist and Over-comer. LOL
Anyway it's the weekend and inside is the only place anyone around here wants to be. It's pouring and actually cold. We don't usually feel cold until after November and it's always bearable until about January/February. Still, I'm not complaining.
I'll be one of those staying in. And beside a call I have to take this afternoon and a couple of carved-out hours to get some personal stuff done, I should be around pretty much all weekend. If I'm not here - taking a break or 'cause it's slow - just email me and I'll check it periodically. I'll write you back so we can figure out a good time for us. Deal?
So back to life ... I had a second date with a guy last night. He's big, strong and from what I can tell so far - he's funny when he wants to be, but he's incredibly shy. Perhaps I intimidate him in some way. I'm not loud, I'm a good listener and I can pretty much strike up a conversation with anyone, but apparently he's divorced and his ex took him for such a rough ride that he's been "off the market" for a while. So, we haven't gotten anywhere near the "fun" stage of our friendship and don't know if we will. I kind of hope not, because I know myself well enough to know that it would make me disappear from NF again. I'm weird like that.
But at the least I have a new friend. Maybe if I tell him what I do, it'll keep us at the friend level and I can help him overcome his shyness at the same time. That would be nice for both of us. He's too young to give up on sex and dating - everyone is in my opinion LOL. I can imagine I'll probably be this old lady one day who is known for keeping libidos up all over the world. That would be pretty awesome, don't you think? People would be fit and healthy, not to mention happy. Yeah! I could be saving lives - expanding life expectancies even. Wow! This could be big! (You have just witnessed one of my goofy ADD-inspired epiphanies - some of which might really work!)
But getting back to the weather ... it's going to rain all weekend and when it's dark and cold and rainy, I always find it appropriate and necessary to stay in a dark room in bed, letting the cold excite my nips, while warming the rest of my body in various ways and of course and staying wet like the weather.
I can do all that alone, but I don't want to.
So if you're having the same type of day (or not) call me and we can exchange ... conversations about the various temperatures we can ignite. :)
