My self image has always relied on a snarky, why would anybody like me? attitude. Except I’m back at a job I held since 2012, and people are FAWNING over me, like I’m a longlost relative. They like me. They really LIKE me! I find that a great reference.
Today, A came over and and she was showering me with happiness that I was back. Serious. I always considered her a Plan B, despite her Trumpist tendencies. As mentioned before, my past is littered with Republican women. And she’s put on a couple while I put off a lot, but I stopped caring.
My greatest care is walking better before I ask her out, though we are both at the point where being capable of standing each trumps all.
