My brain finally woke up

December 29, 2007 at 9:28 pm (Uncategorized)

I’ve been friends with my friend, George, for about 22 years. Part of me has liked him more than a friend for some of that time. I recently realized that it wasn’t him that I was attracted to it was the type of guy that he is.

Why does it take 22 years for someone to realize this? Seriously, it was like a lightbulb went off in my head and the clouds parted.

I feel like a dumbass.

    I was friends with Sweet Tea for a couple of years before I asked her out. Sometimes you are so comfortable around someone that you don’t REALLY see who or what they are. Good luck getting reacquainted with George.

    Sorry, don’t get it. That makes no sense at all.

    … and btw, whatever happened to Brian? I hope I didn’t scare him off. I can be pretty intimidating sometimes. Everyone back at the white collar prison said so. You know, one day while the Warden and I were getting pedicures together, he told me how frightened all the other inmates were of me. Can’t say I blamed them, really…

    It is a strange phenomenon. I have had that happen to me a couple of times. Suddenly, I would look across the table at a femal friend and realize that she meant far more to me than just a friend. One time, the feeling wasn’t mutual. The second one I have now been married too for 36 years.

    that’s cool! I believe that there are certain people that are just supposed to be together. Connection is nothing to be taken for granted!

    Dick, Brian is still around. I’m loopy about that boy.

    The post is basically about how I’ve wasted too much time thinking about someone that I wasn’t really interested in.

    Congratulations on your clarity. I told you things would be different when you got off the drugs! Just kidding!

  10. Dick Small said,

    Oh. Drugs. Sure. That explains aLOT. I should have known.

    so … does that make me a dumbass too cause i still have a thing for tom. always will i guess. first guy i lo … lo …. gawd … is it really love when you are 14 and hormonal?? oh shit i just the age thing outta the bag didn’t i … oopps.

    anyway … i think i understand that whole wasting time on someone thing … firsthand experience and all. it doesn’t mean we are dumbasses it just means we hold out hope. what’s so wrong with that? worst case … you have a great friend.

    Tina, no, it doesn’t make you a dumbass cause you didn’t focus on him and got on with your life.

    metalmom, getting off the drugs did help but you weren’t suppose to tell. now dick knows and it’s all down hill from there.

    OH, and I always have HOPE. sometimes, though, I feel hope can be a detriment.
