Yesterday Tommy and I got together. We talked and apologized about the misunderstanding last weekend. He arrived early and he taught me how to skate board.
I only had to wait 10 minutes, but once he arrived, we were off to the races. Here are a few photos I took of him while he was showing me some tricks. I’m not at the point where I can do tricks.
I still have a lot to learn, but I figured out how to stand on the board and balance.
I have the best teacher. He’s been nothing but patient with me and I am grateful for him. Love you, Skater #1.
Something traumatic happened on Friday. Someone Tommy skates with murdered his ex-girlfriend, and Tommy was in shock. I told him I am here for him, so we decided to feed the geese and ducks yesterday, to honour the gal who was murdered. Usually balloons are released, but we wanted to be eco friendly.
We talked about it and I told him that 11 years ago someone I had a crush on was murdered by his twin brother. The twin brother murdered the entire family with a machete. He asked me how I handled it and I said, “I was shocked too. For me, it helped scrapbooking some things.” I didn’t tell him that the guy and I got into a fight a few months before he was murdered. I told Tommy he can share anything he wants with me, and I listened to him, gave him lots of hugs and kisses.
Tommy and I stood on the little hill overlooking the pond. The gazeebo was across the mostly frozen pond that had two fake ducks in. We agreed that we’d feed the pigeons on Tuesday in Philadelphia and he leaned in to kiss me. We kissed for several minutes and then I said to him without thinking, “you know, a lot of people get married in that gazeebo in the spring and fall.”
He smiled and kissed me some more, then he laughed, “I see what you did there!” He smiled and we both laughed, then embraced for a selfie.
We went back to my house and Tommy drew in my circle journal.
I think I’m going to add a blurb, okay a large blurb, about him in my own circle journal.
He stayed until 11:45 PM. We cuddled on the couch, watched Ray Bradbury Theatre, then a movie called Glen or Glenda on OffBeat Cinema. It’s a movie from 1953, starring Bella Lagosi. Here’s the Wiki about the movie: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glen_or_Glenda
We both enjoyed watching both programs. Tommy and I have the same tastes in movies, TV shows, and music for the most part. It was wonderful relaxing with him after a busy day.
Tomorrow and Tuesday we are spending time together, for Valentine’s Day. I took off from both jobs.
