@Lis I was going to say, dresses only, one piece and you're done. They are so EASY, no mixing, no matching, and there is never any question whether a particular outfit is work-appropriate.
Where did you learn to write like that? (Yes, we could have figured out that Dayna Evans was a writer, even without your tag line :-)). That was so beautiful. You make us all feel connected.
Witty and hilarious! I giggled the entire way through. Definitely worth of meme status (though not what we usually think of as a meme)!
"to bow down to" is key. Oh, how happily I would trade my Seer knowledge for my blithfully ignorant, radiant good health. Chronic incurable bad health that affects your body, mind and spirit is a bitch and only somebody with excellent health would pretend otherwise. Any variation of "it's a blessing" (another great one: "keep a positive attitude!"--thanks for not going there, Baba) makes that wreath tighten around my neck and gag me.
Hilarious post! But sorry, I agree with your co-worker about minimal words conveying maximal content. Damn, you made me hungry for an awesome smoothie! My yogurt is out of date and a smoothie just isn't a smoothie without yogurt....go ahead, BEG me for my recipe.
What, no suicide jokes? (Yes, that was sarcasm.)
@Quinn A@twitter , to me the LW doesn't sound "seriously possessive and immature and mistrustful," more like "human." I'm not sure her letter supports anything to do with your oldest friend's husband running you off because you talk to her more than him. The two instances could not be more unrelated.
Re:LW # 3, Oooh, a gorgeous gay lady who announced she wanted to be Best Friends with my guy after the very first time she met him, largely ignored me when the three of us got together, drunk dialed him, and sent him souvenirs when she went away on trips? Oh, and lost her Last Best Guy Friend because she wanted him to be s sperm donor over the objections of Last Best Guy Friend's lady? This sounds like a Toxic Trouble-making Lady to me.Somebody who uses her gayness as an excuse to run all roughshod over the normal boundaries of relationships. I don't think your imagination is running wild here.
I think if this was a GUY acting like this, you would also be wondering if he was coming on to your man (announcing they should be best friends after one meeting? Ignoring you? Drunk dialing him? Souvenirs?) This lady is over the top, and not in a good way.
Maybe you didn't try hard enough to talk everything out with your guy, but I can't tell that from your letter.You say, " I spoke to both of them about my discomfort as honestly as I could, but after nothing changed it eventually became too much for me." So, it sounds like you DID try to talk things out.
I personally think you have to do what you have to do to protect your primary relationship, and the right thing to do was for your guy to COOL IT. I don't see that you did anything wrong here. (P.S. My "deleted by user" post was due to misspellings, sigh, so forgive my spelling errors.)
OK, while I believe the vast majority of psychics are charlatans, I actually knew a real, live psychic when I was in junior high school. I swear they do exist. She was another girl my age, and she could hold an object you wore a lot (like your glasses or a ring) and tell you all kinds of things about yourself that she otherwise could not possibly know. She said she felt "vibrations." I saw her mother's face turn white and crumple up when my friend Leesa told her about a doll in the attic of her mother's childhood home. "I must have told you about that," her mom said, but she hadn't (Leesa just smiled and shook her head and said , "Nope"). Leesa also held my glasses and described the boy I had a crush on and what he was standing behind (she didn't know the word for it, but she described the podium he was standing behind, because he was president of the student council and I always saw him at student council meetings).
We lost touch during our later teen years but she did tell me a fundamentalist church told her she was a witch and did an exorcism on her. I believe she was diagnosed with mental health issues later because she was on Social Security Disability at a very young age for something I couldn't otherwise identify. She had a kind of low IQ and didn't do very well in school, but she definitely had some psychic powers!
So I truly believe psychic powers to exist, although I believe most of the people out there selling them are charlatans and wanna-bes(and I'm not saying anything about the subject of the interview, because I am not familiar with her).
