Whether we know it or not, every day we weigh up the pros and cons of doing our every-day activities: if I vacuum the house now, will I have enough energy later to prepare dinner? Is it worth the pain I am going to feel tomorrow to go to that party tonight? Do I really need to go to the supermarket today or is there something in the freezer? Every day, our heads do these calculations just so we can make it to the next day…
Here’s one that only you guys are going to understand…remember the guy that I was banned from seeing? (Yes, it was quite a long time ago) The mutual ‘friend’ who did the banning hasn’t spoken to either of us since then, so we decided we should keep in contact.
Long story, short: after 5 months of umm-ing and ah-ing, I had sex!!!
It had been a rather long time between drinks so there was lots of preparations to do: clean the house, change my sheets, prepare supper, waxing, hair-cut, etc, etc. I couldn’t eat anything all day as I have been struggling with major IBS issues and we really wouldn’t want THAT happening!
He had warned me prior that it had been a while for him, too, so there would probably be a need for (at least!) a second act.
Without going into too much detail:
Pump It……….FibroModem and Him
And with that, he fell asleep…and not a light sleep! I let him rest for an hour then tried to wake him up: a light touch, kissing, tickling, pull the blankets off – I even grabbed a gag gift (cat’o’nine tails) and whipped his butt…he didn’t move!
Talk about disappointment!
And then came the consequences…the next day began with me waking with the inevitable head and face ache. I tried to move from my bed and my skin hurt. I landed on my feet which, once again, felt swollen and broken despite there being no visible problem. My stomach and chest was cramping so I lay on my couch with a heat pack all day.
So weighing up the pros and cons, was it worth it?
