January 2022



My trip to the REWE grocery store today reminded me that I’ve forgotten to talk about the “smoking hot cashier” for awhile now.

It turns out that J had not known about this cashier-he’s not the man J thought I was describing, so I’ve been able to go back and assume that my gaydar’s instant reaction to him is correct with the added bonus that he’s smoking hot.

He started cutting his hair shorter sometime in the spring-so the tattoo on the back of his neck is either new, or newly revealed to me. In any case, it’s cute-it is a barcode.

If I had the ability to ask him in Germany, “How much do you cost,” while indicating the back of his neck, I would. (Come to think of it, I do know how to ask how much something costs-I’m more afraid I won’t understand the answer!)

He made my day today by saying hello as I entered the store and smiling at me-pretty simple, I know, but I promptly forgot three items on my list, and I don’t really feel like going back to get them.

    Sounds like you’re about ready to find Mr. Right Now… good for you!

    With the 1-year worth of stress packed into 5 days that I’ve had, I decided last night I needed to go out and found Mr. Right Now. I’m still stressed but it’s amazing how much a little skin-to-skin contact can reduce those levels. =)

    I hope to see this guy again… I don’t think we’re compatible as partners, but he was a lot of fun.

  • Actually, I don’t need a Mr. Right Now — I am content on that front, but that doesn’t mean I won’t look.

    Glad to hear that things are back in perspective now…

    We all need hot boys to look at. 🙂 Okay, maybe Gary doesn’t need a hot boy to look at … and we don’t have hot boys in E’ville, home of the annual Mullet Fest.

    I haven’t really been in a writing mood the past couple of days—which is a shame. Yesterday I missed the fact that it was Veteran’s/ Armistice/ Remembrance/ Fasching Day. Veteran’s Day in the United States to memorialize its war heros;…

    I must apologize for not posting anything yesterday. I do have a good excuse, really! I was at the grocery store last night making some last minute purchases, when I noticed that they were selling bottles of Primeur Beaujolais-Villages wine…
