    Mr. Creepy Talks To Bernie

    The first time I met him, the very first thing out of his mouth was, "I have seen a picture of you".  Who the hell was this jerk.  He was well dressed, but gave off the creepiest vibes.  Turns out, I knew his brother.  We had gone to a picnic together and had had a group...

    I kept running into the backstabber at the

    beginning of the year (almost weekly) I thought was my good friend, (she started sleeping with the person I was dating knowingly behind my back). But seeing as I can't walk more than a block due to illness, guess I solved that problem.

    Walmart Hell

    The trouble is...you might see ANYONE there. I've ran into all manner of people from my past in our local Walmart. I know this is going to happen but still, I go there religiously looking like hell warmed over.... with no make up, a stale ponytail, wearing a HUGE tee shirt, no...

    I would hate to run into my old boss.

    I honestly feel that if I see my old boss I would punch her in her face. In my volleyball practices I imagine her head as the volleyball.

    I bumped into a lot of people I don't want to

    see. I also cover my face with whatever is next to me Or I just hope in my head by saying "please don't look my way please don't look my way"... Sometimes they don't look my way and sometimes they do. I just have on my fake smile and pretend I'm happy around them.

    I have started avoiding places I've been going

    No Makeup

    I hate when I run to the store wearing no makeup only to bump into people I know. It sucks. I have horrible, blotchy skin and people stare at me which is embarrassing....
