    Too Old And Taken

    I am old enough to know that a married man is not available and you should not tell him if you have a crush on him or make suggestions that could lead to the two of you being together without others around. But now I have and I must stop what is going on in case it goes too far...

    No Reruns For Me

    Reruns of old mistakes that is.  The one valuable lesson I've learned is this:  Never jump  back into the same skillet.  You'll get burned worse, the second time around.

    I Sometimes Wonder ...

    Unresolved Anger

    And I Do Know Better... But...

    But there's something unmistakingly mischievous and exciting about doing stuff against knowing better. Sometimes there's regrets afterwards, of course, with an accompanying sigh of "damn, I KNEW this was gonna happen". But sometimes there's just a giddy feeling and a silly, broad...

    I Am An Adult
