I have a story to share along the ‘what a weird day’ line.
Truth is I gotta tell someone!
Friday I get a call from a guy I haven’t heard from in 38yrs, not since I left high school. He was part of a small group of 6 or so, who hung together, including myself. He was the first of us to partner, marry, house, career, success! Or so I’d heard, I didn’t really much care about staying connected to any of my highschool chums, as it was a circle of hell for me. I moved to another city and never looked back. I would never think of going to a reunion, to be honest, I was happy to be rid of the place.
So, it turns out he’s in town at a convention, wants to stop by so we can catch up, after it’s all done. He comes by about 9:30pm, shakes hands with my hubby, I make tea, we sit talking on the patio, while hubby surfs on his computer.
We talk for about an hour and it goes pretty predictably. His wife, kids, interests, achievements, pursuits, etc. My travels, daughter, grandson. He tells me about people I haven’t thought of in decades, etc., etc. It was pleasant enough, and I was curious to see him after talking to him on the phone. But as I’m not much interested in ever doing such a thing, (I’m an ‘ever forward’ sort of girl, by nature!), it was certainly something I couldn’t quite understand.
Finally, he’s got to get going, we get up, move through the house. We hug a couple of times, saying ‘It’s been nice!’, etc. He shakes hands with hubby on our way to the front porch, where we chat a little more, including an insincere, ‘If you’re ever in town again…!’, one last hug and…
The fellow suddenly puts me in the clench and attempts to lays a big wet one on me!:eek::mad::dubious:WTF? Up until this very second the entire thing has been casual, comfortable, easy. WTF?
You need to know; I’d been cleaning my house all day for company on the weekend, and had not changed my clothes. I had no make up on, as I hardly wear it. While I am slim, and short, have long not yet grey hair, I am a 56yr old woman! That’s right, 56yrs old!
I repeat, WTF? What the hell is wrong with people?
(I did not share the final twist things took, with hubby, I was too embarrassed. And really, what would be the point?)
