[Trumpet fanfare] Tonight, I walked up the stairs!

And then Ichi told me he just wants to be friends.

Good thing I’m learning to stand on my own two feet again.

    Hurrah! The stairs are a milestone indeed.

    That title is great… and the article is fascinating.

    So far, none of the men who play romantic/sexual roles in our lives has succeeded in defying stereotype and my (admittedly cynical) expectations.

    The breakup was amicable. We are still friends. He was always honest and straightforward with me. And I had a very pleasurable summer fling. It just ended a little sooner than I’d hoped. But no damage has been done. (And now I don’t have to figure out how to breathe in a house with 4 cats).

    Onward. TragicCrusade has identified a promising employment lead that might manifest in September. So, for now I will concentrate on my professional development and gaining control of my wayward body.

    YAY! and awww….
    But things look promising. Even the price of gas is going down.

    Onward and upward

    Carry on with your wayward body. Best of luck to you with your search, too.

  8. Ten Feet of Steel said,

    Oh, my theory is not dependent on whether breakups are amicable or not. And it is not a judgment on Ichi. Just an observation in general about the state of gender relations. We can discuss over drinks sometime, maybe, which is the only good time for me to discuss social science outside of the classroom.

    Wait, wasn’t there some joking about Ichi getting interested once he found out you were in a cast? And now that you are almost walking again, he decides to just be friends. Interesting….

  10. Quiconque said,

    Yes, I teased him about being a cast fetishist, too. Feel free to bring this up at dinner on Sunday.

  11. La Belle Helene said,

    So he is still invited to birthday eatings?
