Worrier

As it turns out, The Boss did have a long talk with a friend. A woman at work was having trouble with her husband (from hearing a second-hand one-sided version of the problem, he sounds like an idiot) and bent The Boss's ear about it.

Actually, I like when she hangs around with other married women. They always complain about their men and I come out looking like a keeper.

Anyway, I worry about her all the time. When we first moved in together, I worked the 5am shift and she worked the 4 pm, and there were times I laid awake in bed worrying about whether she would ride her bike home safely in the winter time. I'd be awake for hours, and when I'd finally hear the squeal of her bike brakes I'd think "Ah, there she is," and drop off to sleep immediately.

I don't do that too often anymore. I worried so many nights and been wrong about it that I have a little more trust. I sleep better, at least.

Sorry if this one is a little rough. I've just rolled out of bed.

You know, that's how I end up feeling about my husband after I've talked to other women (or listened to them . . .): Boy! Did I get lucky!

    Oh, yeah, excellent point.

    Oh yeah. Like the lawyers who get obvious really venal criminals off because it makes their success rate look good. But those are not the ones I am referring to in meaning well. These guys are mixed…

    This reminds me of the time my wife was injured and the insurance guy handling her case did everything possible to deny and stall the payment. We had to put her surgery on a credit card because this…

    The creepiest part is that some of them are actually well meaning.

    Yeah. It's godawful what people will do when they have authority and no fear about using it.
