Not Sure

Saturday, October 09, 2010      14 comments

Yesterday I saw a woman I hadn't seen in months. She asked me if I'd lost weight on purpose, and I assured her I had. "I hate you," she said, and walked away. It didn't feel right and left me wondering what I could do. I suspect she's been gaini... Read more

Short Term Obstacle

Thursday, October 07, 2010      15 comments
