So we're having brunch today in my friend's restaurant, and a friend who works there is taking our orders and catching me up on important stuff....

Fr: I went out with this guy Monday night.

Me: Yeah? That's the first in a while. How was it?

Fr: Oh, just great. So great that three days later, he packed up and moved out of state.

Me: Er.

Fr: He was talking about his ex-wife. He's 32, and he was talking about how immature she is...so I'm thinking maybe she's some young thing, 19, 20ish or so...but *no*...she's 62. Thirty freakin' years older than him, but, see, she's "immature".

Me: !!!!!

Fr: See, I figured that wasn't a just a little red flag, that was a god damned red *flare*.

Me: Um, true. But he moved away anyway, so you don't have to work at avoiding him.

Fr: Yeah. I'm only 3 years older than him, anyway, so I'm probably way too young for him, after all.

Life is truly stranger than fiction, I don't care what anybody says. Even if you pull the book from the Fantasy section.

I am so glad I put down my hot chocolate before reading that. I hate cleaning it off my monitor.

I just showed cea this post and she just shook her
head. She has lots of bad date stories.
She also reminded me of the woman I moved from Ontario to BC for. She actually flew to Ontario and paid half the trip back to BC. That was in July.
By Oct. she had moved to Memphis and gotten married.

Good grief! Well, she certainly didn't suck you dry for money, on one hand. On the other, you have to thank her for being the mechanism through which the universe got you to walk through that door to BC---and thereby meet Cea. So all's well that endeth well...and I'd say that Cea is a nice ending!
