In other news, ran into an old almost boyfriend at the mall yesterday. I'm assuming the woman he was with was his wife. I'd been told he got married finally a few years ago. Why do I say 'almost boyfriend'? He was a friend that I was crazy about who never actually saw me as a girl. We did Scottish dance together, went to Highland games (he was also a piper), he'd come to our house for Christmas dinner. And over the course of it all, I watched him with one girlfriend after another. I never qualified, and never figured out what quality I lacked. Still don't know to this day. I think I just generally fail at being female. Anyway, I hadn't seen him in years, so it was a little weird. I was actually rather surprised he even recognized me. He seemed a little startled, said 'Hi!" and then scurried away to catch up with his wife. So I bought a skirt at Chicos :) Seemed like the only rational reaction -- buy myself something pretty. And then proceeded to spend several hours wondering what's wrong with me, as far as male of the species is concerned at least. Otherwise the list would be way too long!
And in other other news, am I the only one scanning the Highlander Secret Santa comm frequently to see if your story is up yet? I've been dying of curiosity since my Santa asked me a question about my interests back when we were all first assigned. Can't wait!
