Big Storm Coming

Hurricare Irene is heading this way and I expect that this weekend's activities will be impacted. My sister has tickets to a great concert on Saturday but it looks unlikely that it will happen. I recall this occurring a few years ago where we had a show get cancelled and we never had the storm but I can't remember the specifics. Maybe I can look it up in a prior entry.
I took my last $20 out of my checking account yesterday so I could buy cat litter and motor oil. I'm not sure which one I more desperately needed but I have all of $14 left until next Wednesday. Since my birthday is Tuesday that pretty much means a very subdued celebration. Maybe the storm is good since I won't feel like I'm missing much as everyone hunkers down to ride it out. I went down to the boat to check on what I need to do last night.
Just prior to midnight I got text messaged from Carolyn. She is worried about her boat but since I'd gone to check on it I told her everything was fine with her boat as well as mine. She wants to take down her canvas today. I will need to do the same but probably wait until Saturday. Storm should hit late enough that I can get it done. I am a little concerned.
Carolyn and I haven't spoken all week so I was glad to hear from her although it would have been nice to plan something. She seems to be super busy so I'll give her time and space and not worry too much about it. I think she knows how I feel and the best thing for me to do is just leave it alone.

Wait a minute. If you like Carolyn in a sexual/girlfriend way, stop being her buddy. Once you're cemented in that role, it's hard to get out of it.

And for God's sake, make some sort of move. Kiss her! Caress her arm. Touch her hair and see what kind of reaction you get.

:) Nice blog btw! I just read about 10 posts which helped my boring afternoon in work go by.

Josie - of course you are right. If only I could see it that simply. And it's not as if I haven't tried. While there are moments when she will flirt with me when the moment of truth arrives she has either backed away or just pushed me aside. I am probably being too patient but realize she has been struggling with a drawn out divorce and also had a boyfriend die from cancer only in the last year. If I have any other option this would have ended by now.

I'd like to know what "moment of truth" really means.

You can't go from zero to sixty in a minute....which means you can't go from being a buddy to wanting sex. You gotta get there bit by bit.

first and foremost - make sure she knows you're a man who's attracted to her. Tell her she looks delicious - like I said stroke her arm, touch her hair, moan softly when you hug her but no more, so there's no "moment of truth" pressure. Then go a little bit further each and every time you see her. Tell her looking at her distracts you. Tell her you're going to have a hard time walking if she keeps dressing like that.

Those are pearls - use one each and every day you see her. TRUST ME. That is of course, if you do want her. I think you may really want Lisa and Carolyn is just more available.

If it's lisa you want - whole different plan. ;)

Just try it - you'll enjoy it. :)
