I got home today and sat down with Chester to talk about the day. Of course he never responds, but sometimes I make a high pitched voice and pretend that he does. Here’s sort of how our conversation went today:
(Me picking up Chester for our right-after-work cuddle)
Me: So, how was your day boo boo?
Chester: Well, I inhaled, I mean ate my food, and then drank a little from the bathtub faucet, which I know you don’t like mommy, but I did it anyway. Then I went potty and kicked litter everywhere in the process. After that I sat on my perch like a frozen turkey for about 3 hours. Then I slept all afternoon, so I guess you can say it was pretty busy. You?
Me: I was working all day to support your lazy butt.
Chester: Cuddle session over. Let me down now. (Proceeds to bunny kick).
As brief as our little cuddle sessions are, I wouldn’t trade them for anything. Sometimes we nap:
I need my kitty cuddles at the end of the day, especially a day when you realize who your true friends are.
For the past year or so, I’ve been trying to get my high school “friends” to go to a local winery here where I live. They always had some excuse not to. Well, I looked at eff-book today, a seemingly necessary evil, and saw that they went together, by themselves and with their boyfriends without telling me. They posted pictures with a caption that said something like “it’s good to have some best friend time.” I might not have cared so much if they lived close by and it was just something they did on a whim. No, they actually live 2 hours away in my hometown and drove all the way up here for this couples’ weekend that they had planned for weeks. Needless to say, I was hurt. When I confronted said friend about this, she got very defensive. This isn’t the first time these friends have cancelled on me. Maybe it’s about the 50th….
Anyway, I give up trying to be friends with women. Not all women, mind you, just the ones that I know I really don’t have anything in common with. My coworkers are awesome and they don’t count. My mother and sister and a few friends who really get me don’t count either. I just know when I meet someone whether or not we’re compatible. I know many of you could be good friends with me, face-to-face I mean. It’s like I’ve been friends with these people since elementary school, so I think that we’re still friends, but in reality, we no longer have all that much in common. As I’ve become an adult, I know my place in the world a little bit better. I know my interests and hobbies and my personality a little bit better too. I went to a very liberal college and most of my personal views reflect that. My high school friends are not this way. I’ve tried to keep this friendship alive for years now and so have they, but let’s just be honest, we’re really too different.
Honestly, I make friends with guys easier.
Anyway, so that’s what made today kind of weird. On another note, I’m going to see my mommy this weekend with K. We’re both excited to go 🙂 It’s been a long winter and we’ve hardly left the house! I am so looking forward to Spring.
