My So Called Exciting Life


PLEASE SEE THE FIRST COMMENT TO READ LEGIBLY!
So tell me something totally exciting that you've done!€ he said as we cuddled.

I truly hate it when I get asked that or the "So tell me about yourself"question.

My mind went totally blank, and my doe eyes had headlights in them.

In sales, I was taught to have a 'stump speech'€ at the ready; a thirty second blurb designed to pique the other's interest to want to know more about your product or service. [Trust me, its much easier to promote something made or offered by someone else than to sell your own wares].

I had nothing prepared for that moment. I thought to myself, 'He must be getting bored with me!'€.

He looked at me expectantly...

ARRRGGGHHHH!!!

I had nothing that would even come close to the adventures he has lived.

We've covered some amazing topics about him: Kinkfest, BitCoin, travels [his, not mine], Martial Arts, weird music tastes [Industrial], Shibari, his brushes with fame: Anton LaVey, Mary of Peter, Paul and Mary, even told me the story of the kinkiest gal he’s ever been with [Geezus, as if THAT wasn’t intimidating!]

So I have been racking my very vanilla brain trying to come up with an intriguing answer to his question. It made me realize I have lived a safe, stable and sheltered existence. I lived in the very same house my whole life till I moved out on my own. I have only traveled to a few spots within the U.S. and day trips to Canada. I don't even have a passport. [There's a discrepancy by one vowel between my birth certificate and my SS card that I need to get fixed first]. And of course, if youve read along in this blog at all, you'll know that till now I've been with the same man for 35 years.

I would have to say that the most exciting and out of character off the wall thing that I’ve ever done is eloped to Reno. I mean, it was a TRUE elopement. We woke up one Sunday and said, “Wouldnt it be nice to wake up like this every day?” Of course, we had just had sex when he said that and thought it was a good idea. Cautious me had my doubts about it.

Impetuous he said, “look if we don’t do it then we’ll look at it as a fun adventure. We’ll gamble a little, and then come home.”

I said, “Can I bring my bestie with me?”

“Sure, but let’s not tell her what we’re really doing. We’ll act like we’re driving to Kah-nee-ta Warm Springs Resort and then just keep driving.”

We picked up my friend – she and I were housesitting for my sister, who had just moved to Texas at the time and wanted eyes on her place. We were dressed for the sun: capri pants, a long t-shirt cover-up and sandals. I tell you this because that became my wedding ensemble!

We were at Mt. Hood when we stopped at the small general store and ATM. There weren’t a lot of them around in those days. The hubs got some cash and some champagne for the road. When the bestie saw that, she exclaimed,” You two are getting MARRIED!!! I think its a wonderful idea!!!”

With that we were on our way to begin our life together.

Well, kinda.

We all talked and drank and drove. I know, not the smartest way to go, but we were at that young and invincible stage of life. We stopped in Redmond to gas up and went to the grocery store for snacks and more champagne.

I remember walking down a grocery aisle with my friend with her saying, 'So, when did you say ˜yes€™?

I retorted, “I havent yet. That™s why I brought you along…to talk him out of it.”

That was a good story, BUT I think you're being modest, perhaps even falsely so.

Taken as a whole, or even in smaller specific segments, the adventure you and hubby are now engaged in is one HECK of a fascinating story.

I understand how THAT question is so difficult to answer when the asker has spoken of what you consider to be true adventures of travel and daring and you have lived a very untraveled and vanilla life. I kind of feel that way when listening to my GF Diane. I have also discovered that it doesn't matter. We connect on so many levels and have discovered that it is how we think and what about that connects us. The adventures are just things that may have shaped how we are now. Not who we are.
Your adventure in getting married sounds interesting and yes the dumb stuff that we did just shows how that age makes us feel invulnerable. (And to think we lived through some of that stuff.!)
Back to his question. If he finds your adventures boring or not up to his standards then he is not worthy of you.
Sening you a big Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas with a big naked hug. (Cause I am as usual, naked right now.)

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.

My passport expires next year but I've only used it twice in ten years! Is it worth getting it re-newed I ask myself?

I would think for your neck of the woods, Citizen, it'd be worth it. Besides how else would you come stateside for a visit??

Wow. This is great.
I don’t think “so-called exciting” is fitting. Need to jazz that up!

Have a great day! 💋
