Hello and goodbye
Hello world, is it time to get back on the proverbial horse and get out there? Who in hell knows is my rejoinder. On a daily basis, life seems to be changing and not much is in our control but roll with it we must. And Yes, my dear friends that includes the mask wearing and the social distancing. Am not the police for either but it seems to work so why fight it? Now, does that mean we say hello to a real meet and greet in 3D as in real date or what?
Has anyone even thought about any of this? I haven’t as it all seemed so foreign and still does but now what? Can I just have Virtual dates forever? I think not. How is 3D going to look? Well, i guess we will figure it out as it goes along. So yes, what about kissing or holding someone’s hand? And sex, what’s that? Horizontal cha cha wow, what a concept. Go figure!!
Too many things to think about. Am still at what am i going to wear and do i have a really fabulous mask? And lipstick or no lipstick? Under a mask who cares but if one is drinking or eating the mask comes off and heaven knows, my mouth could very well look like the jokers but oh well.
The one thing I did know is that I had no desire to meet Mr Dr in 3D. We had a virtual thing that was born out of the need for an activity and a human connection. It worked until he floated the idea of meeting and I realized that in the old world, I probably would have gone out with him twice and moved on and you know what, he felt the same way.
Now, that might sound somewhat cold but it really isn’t, it’s reality. I’m all about telling the truth and that’s it.
So it’s time for hello how are you and give me wine...Have a few guys in the holding pen who seem nice. AlreaDy eliminated one because he was a PUTZ as i reported but he had great dogs. SIGH.
This morning I had i think, one might call it a phone convo with a guy who started from jump street ranting that social distancing was stupid and blah blah blah. I replied well, we can sit at a table and have a drink outside but no, he wasn’t buying it and I grew tired of the pissing contest so used the old “I have another call routine” and hung up.
Life is too short and too precious to spend it with someone who sucks the air out of the room and that’s on the phone. I shudder to think about what in person would be like. Not my jam.
So, watch out holding pen guys, Sixty is back. Meeting someone in 3D does indeed sound enticing so...
So it’s hello and goodbye for me at this time. The hello is to some friends who i haven’t seen in ages, to nyc, to hugging my kids to all those wonderful things that we used to take for granted and even meeting a nice guy who doesn’t send me out of the restaurant with my hair on fire.
The goodbye forever is to my buddy and companion through the hell of the last few months and for 12 years, Eli. Not for anything, I think he was the longest successful relationship I’ve ever had. All kidding aside, he rescued me from the terror of being alone in the epicenter of the pandemic and kept me going as I had to because he needed me. Thank you, Eli for staying with me for as long as you did and being my best audience. RIP, boychick.
What’s the takeaway? Cherish every minute you have with those you love. FEEL GRATEFUL!! Tell your kids every chance you get that you love them. Ditto friends and family. Be kind as why not? We all learned and continue to learn during all of this. And by all means, keep dancing and knitting and coloring and having wine and fun. And smile and laugh because the alternative holds no allure.
MAKE IT FABULOUS!!
