I miss

Right now...

I miss working.

I miss driving.

I miss traveling: travel for work, travel to sight-see, travel to visit people.

I miss a lot of friends.

I miss visiting pets: the dog Sophie who lived with my family for 14 of her 16 years (we got her when she was 2), the cats I met when I moved into the house where I currently live, other friends' and families' pets...just pets, in general.

I miss certain people I met through blogging who no longer blog and who I hope are doing OK. I sometimes wish they'd blog again, but that's their call, not mine.

I miss being a partner.

I miss being naked with someone who likes seeing me naked and who I like to see naked too.

Much of what I miss, is on hold until I find work again. As I've admitted, I'd feel weird about asking someone out while I'm in my current situation; I fear I wouldn't be a good partner while in this situation. I fear I'd be dating for the wrong reasons. This doesn't keep me from noticing interesting, available people and going I hope she was interested, too. I'm also not a one-night-stand kind of person, wanting to hook up briefly and nothing else, so that's not an option either.

Other reasons things are on hold: no driving because my car needs work. No pets of mine because I currently couldn't support any properly. I could probably visit more friends, though; it's worth the effort.

I miss a lot.

I rarely write Friends-Locked entries in my blog, but I feel that writing this [now unlocked], with an audience limited by design, might help. I wanted to get this down in an entry.

This might help. I want to miss less.

  • On Driving

    Good: I didn’t get used to it. From the second half of January to early March, Mom let me borrow her car so I wouldn’t have to deal with a closure…

  • That’s an option (heh, heh)

    People smoke in Valet. Not us employees, obviously, but people leave the airport terminal, get to our area across the street, and light up because…

  • Conflation: thoughts prompted by “Pig” (2021)

    Here I will discuss something pointless, which, hey, my blog, I say what I want. It’s about a very good film and a detail which is, it turns out,…
