    Too Serious

    I tend to take people and their stories too literally.  I often miss jokes or little jabs b/c I think they are being literal.   Or someone will tell me something totally outrageous as a joke and I will believe it.  When I waited tables I would sometimes...

    It's Not Really His Fault, But I Still Feel Duped.

    I'm dating a man who was divorced over two years ago. When we first met, it was love at first sight. It was like God pointed a big sign at him and said "hey! look here! this is the one". We were soul mates. The relationship moved quickly, partially, because he's my next...

    I have a huge fear of spiders.

    So when my brother's friend said he had a tarantula in a shoebox he was holding, against my better judgement and my brother who said there wasn't one, I fell for it. It wouldn't have been so bad if his friend didn't start chasing me around with said shoebox. If he hadn't, I...

    My daughter knows just how to break my heart

    Easily Tricked In Matters of the Heart

    Just recently,I let a neighbor make local calls on my phone. It was no big deal because we paid a flat rate. It started becoming a habit. He'd knock on my door almost every day to use the phone. It was annoying but he was friendly enough and his parents were nice people. One day...
