Oh, this is not very good at all...

This weekend I went to a really great party at my friend Becky's house in Clare. In the course of 12 hours, I drank at least 10 glasses of green keg beer (and spilled just as many,) danced like a completely crazy person to an assortment of wonderful tunes from Neil Diamond and NKOTB and the always crowd-pleasing "We Are The World," learned how to play the card/drinking game "asshole"...and I also met a very nice guy who seems interested in me and I in him...and of course it will not work out for any/all of the following reasons:

1. He is technically married (will be divorced in a few months)
2. His marriage ended badly after less than a year
3. He is an army reservist and could be called up for active duty any day now
4. He lives in Grand Rapids, which is over 150 miles away

So, of course I've landed myself in a very bad situation. To make matters worse, he's interested in seeing me this weekend. It will all end in tears (I say as I swoon dramatically.)

I totally, uh, I mean, uh, disapprove...of this potential relationship.

Swoon away.

...but are you going to go for it?

after much consideration, soul searching, blah, blah, blah, I've decided that I should go for it. He may likely be a bit emotionally iffy, but hell, so am I. Life's too short. It could be like therapy with benefits (omg, did I just type that?!?)

no shame in that...i'd kill for some therapy with benefits (that's a great term) right now!
