A few days ago, I posted on Facebook that the next time I started dating, I wanted to meet a guy who puts his worst foot forward, so I’ll know what I’ll be dealing with later. It was a just a little joke, but the next day, I was sitting in the hallway outside of my room talking to Chef on the phone, while a guy was working on something in the wall, like an electrician or something. Chef was very upset about something that had happened that morning, and I was mainly just listening.
I noticed the guy kept kind of looking over at me, and I figured he was thinking my conversation was humorous. Actually, I was finding the call funny because I get this same phone call almost every morning, and I was just shaking me head and laughing a little bit and trying to get Chef to calm down. When I hung up, the guy makes a comment like, “Ex?” and I said yes.
We stood in the hall making some small talk, and then I decided to end the conversation, as it was turning into a “pick up” conversation. I excused myself, and as I was walking away, he says to me, “Watch out, darlin’. I’m bad news.” LOL!!
By the end of next week, my divorce papers should be filed, and I’m thinking that the peaceful truce between Chef and I might blow up again, on his part. But I do have to tell ya’ll, I’m kind of lonely. All my friends are married, and I hate being a third wheel, charity case when I go out with them. This isn’t a huge, heartbreaking thing for me. I’m not falling apart and sad about it, only hoping that maybe someday God will have someone for me…Preferably before I qualify for Social Security.
Have a great day!!
