You Can Just Tell

Well, its Tuesday, and the 23rd which is usually my lucky day – probably because that is the month date of my birthday (and no, I not giving the actual month or year, so just forget it!).

I met my ‘girl with no name’ today, and I always feel better after that. Its such a change when someone looks at you closely, and there is concern and affection in the eyes. Just unspoken understanding really; and I do not even know her that well yet. Maybe, just maybe, it will come to something. I know I want it to, and I feel she does. I’ve told her the ‘worst’ things about myself (well, I didn’t actually have to tell her, she was aware of it) and she knows I smoke and have the odd glass of beer. I also told her my true age; which maybe I should have left out as she thought I was at least 15 years younger than I was!

But enough said about that. I do not want any potential critics to find out about her and try to corrupt her feelings – which they almost certainly would do!So that’s all I’m saying for the moment; but she certainly is very lovely.

Anyway, I felt a lot better after that. And when I got home everything seemed a lot ‘fresher’; maybe similar to the feeling you get after a short holiday and things just don’t seem so ‘familiar’, if that makes sense.

Some more book orders, so I dealt with those quite easily. Then there were a couple of emails to send which didn’t seem such a task. Still got a load of legal stuff to deal with though over a civil action; that is really not so funny!

But all said and done, it really has been a ‘lucky day’.

  1. Hi David,
    Glad to hear that you met with your ‘girl without a name.’ You deserve some happiness, dear friend.

  2. Thank you Columbine; that’s what most people have said – except two females.
    One minute they’re saying that she doesn’t exist, and the next that if she does . . . “Maybe she’d recoil in horror if she knew the full story.”
    Well, this really proves my point entirely. That’s exactly WHY I keep her identity secret to protect her from such harassment and threats Not very Christian, is it?!? (Although I guess you could expect such senile remarks from one of them).
    Anyway, thanks again Columbine. It nice to know some people really do care!

  3. David,
    Your lady sounds very sweet, and you are obviously fond of her. Never mind what anyone else says or thinks; it’s your life and her life, and maybe she is ‘the one.’ You’ll never know unless you go for it….’faint heart never won fair lady’ as the saying goes.
    I really do wish you lots of luck.

  4. Thank you once again Columbine,
    I don’t know what will happen. When I said she knows about myself, she does, but as a person as I am now. She doesn’t know about all the silly ‘vampire business’ and all the rest of it. (That’s why I got a little annoyed with Cat!).
    I really don’t know what’s going to happen (although I would tell you in private).
    Its strange though how some people would actually try and deny you happiness. What a world we seem to live in, sometimes filled with so much bitterness and deceit!
    Your friend’

Nice Autumn day today; things still fairly quiet though workwise. Second edition of Comic Book is still on schedule, and I have confirmation now that
