August has been an interesting month.
I was preparing for another hot and steamy, last-month-of-summer letdown. I had all but given up on online dating, fitting better into my clothes and ever being cool again with all this humidity. I shouted to the universe that I wasn’t going to take another month of mediocracy. It never listens, so why would it now?
And then … out of nowhere … someone wrote me back on Match.com. And this someone is now special to me — not in a short bus kind of way, but in a where-have-you-been-my-whole-life sort of way.
Also, I’ve lost four pounds, and last night I won (from the awesome folks of Do502) something I had been coveting from afar for years: my very own whiskey thief!
While it hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows (both my air conditioner and car broke), this month has given me gifts I will cherish for a long, long time.
