Day 10

Being alone sucks for stupid reasons

I’m used to being on my own, I’ve been divorced for 8 years and only had one serious relationship shortly after the divorce. For the most part I’m fine with it. I enjoy my own company and I have some amazing girlfriends to keep me going.

But today I tried to change the filters on my drinking water system.... and I’m not strong enough to unscrew the canisters for the filters. Something so small and stupid, and I felt totally helpless over it. It’s so frustrating to have something I want done, I’m able to get the parts and I know the steps to accomplish the task, but I’m physically incapable of taking care of it. That just sucks.

Even a strong, intelligent, educated woman needs a man in her life (related, romantic, or retained) or she had to drink gross water.

    Or you could just go out to a hardware store, chat up some hunky, handsome fellow and he could show you which pair of vice grips to get to do the job properly. He might even come over and demonstrate it in person.....

    Ah, and there’s the point Rav... find a man to do it for me. I have the wrench, just not the muscle.
