This is a squirrel reacting to 2020 ... as have many of us.
Spike's Bitches 49: As usual, I'm here to help you, and I... are you naked under there?
Spike-centric discussion. Lusty, lewd (only occasionally crude), risqué (and frisqué), bawdy (Oh, lawdy!), flirty ('cuz we're purty), raunchy talk inside. Caveat lector.
I have a 16 year old.
That is some timey whimey-ness, Aims! Happy Birthday to her!
I have a 16 year old.
Seriously! What is up with that? Mine of course somehow made it to 28 and 26 and will be adding a grandchild to the mix in January.
Perhaps we should have a thread for Buffistas- Generations.
I remember that 16-year-old when she was in a car seat/carrier in NO.
So, since March ive probably hugged someone like five times. Spending the week of the election with my friends was the first prolonged contact in forever. It sucks super bad because I want hugs and human touch and so on. And so when having a call with friends tonight and one was all sad about not getting touch and all “it’s so hard I’m having such a hard time” while simultaneously telling us about spending last night cuddling in bed with an ex, and has slept with at least four different people since March (no shame in a normal year, but this year...) and had multiple friends who she claimed at points to be bubbling with but who didn’t know the meaning of the word...I had a real hard time not blowing up at her. I didn’t, because we were talking about it and meeting because of a different bad/hard thing that had happened to her, for which she legit needed comfort and loving words, and I didn’t want to come down hard on her because of that, but Jesus fucking Christ girl have a little self awareness.
You HUGGED someone?!
I had a real hard time not blowing up at her.
I feel like this almost constantly.
I am a huge hugger normally, and honestly not as hug deprived as some as I still hug DH, hugged my son in NY, and hug my SIL here. However, I will have to make up for lost time next year! I told my favorite office manager that after we got our vaccines she was going to get a big hug. DH holds the opposite position and thinks handshakes just need to end altogether and that masks and hand sanitizer needs to stay forever. It will probably end up in the middle somewhere.
I could live without the masks, but I completely agree about hand shakes going away. Somehow, I feel like hugs (sans cheek kiss) are less germy, but that could just be wishful thinking. Just, you know, hold your breath while leaning into the hug, and then breath again once you're behind my face, then reverse it out. Science by Jen.
