Up to the minute

She set her computer on her lap and crossed her legs. For a moment I wondered how she was going to type like that.

“So how do you feel right this minute?” she asked.

Something like this, I thought.

    I think we all see ourselves more cartoonishly than we actually are. A regular comment-to-myself in my adult life has been, “They must see something in me that I don’t see” because frankly, everyone around me seems to assume I have it together WAAAAAY more than it seems to me. My picture of myself is a lot more like Lucy on the sped-up chocolate line than a graceful swan.

    Most people who’ve voiced an opinion on the matter seem to be under the ludicrous impression that I’m a pleasant, easygoing guy. The only people who see how mean I can be seem to be the mean ones. They steer clear.

    Life is good.

    If it’s any condolence, bladder timing gets everybody eventually. We all should buy stock in Depends.

    I agree with your counselor that you’d be happier with a companion. I suggest an animal to start with. So, you think you’d trip over a cat. I don’t think so. Frankly, you’re moving too slow for that, my friend.

    And, it wouldn’t cost anything to try a date-matching site. OKCupid is a good one, especially for thinkers like yourself. They ask you to answer a million questions that I think you’d find highly-entertaining. Even if nothing “big” comes of it, you’d have some fun.

    At least online, you’ve fooled us to believe you’re adorable.

    I did at one time maintain a presence on OkCupid; I think they finally got around to deleting my profile last week.
