So far he’s seen me without makeup. We came close to having our first argument. I’ve met a couple of his friends and he’s met a couple of mine. I cooked him a terrible meatloaf but he lied and said it was delicious anyway. He even took home the leftovers. So……things are going pretty darned great, right?
Well, there is one thing. Emma Kelly is having a little bit of difficulty accepting all of this. Tinder Bear/Wolf is the first person I’ve openly dated in front of her and she’s not used to sharing me with anybody. She likes TBW a lot — a LOT. She hugs on him and wants to hang out with him all the time. It’s GREAT. But she just doesn’t want to share ME with him. If he’s holding one hand, she’s got to be holding the other. Or, better yet, she monopolizes both of my hands and sits there with a smug “I won” look on her face.
She tells me that she doesn’t want me dating anyone. But when I tell her I don’t want to be lonely, she tells me I’m not lonely because I have her and our dog George. And when I explain to her that both she and George are going to leave me one day and ask her what I’m supposed do then, she tells me to get another dog. Oh, and she’s promised to go to community college so she can still live at home with me. I guess she’s thought all of this through!
Now taking bets as to how long it will take Emma Kelly to run him off.
