Johnny: Move to the East Coast, become my sugar daddy (though our age difference might not be significant enough … sugar uncle?), and you can put me through ground & flight school. While you’re at it, get an instructor’s license and save yourself a bundle on the flight school cost.
fessie: Sorry for the aeronautic hijack.
Sensibility: What makes you say that you need to “toughen up?” You make it sound as though it’s impossible to have a lot of heart and protect yourself. That’s simply not so. Screw Johnny’s tea: let’s you and me talk over some beers. (No offense, J!)
Guess Im just not too good at the self - protection bit, Im so busy making sure everyone ELSE is okay, letting them know that Im there for them, protecting THEM from being hurt etc, that I forget to protect me!
