Sunlight beams into the room through an opening in the curtains. The bright warmth on my face rouses me to wakefulness.
I look at the woman next to me and can't help but smile as she mumbles something incoherent and rolls deeper into the covers she has mostly stolen. Bereft of blankets and encouraged to remain awake due to the treacherous window I stealth over for the briefest of snuggles and plant a kiss on her cheek. More murmuring and a faint smile escape her lips as I gingerly remove myself from a sudden and rather ferocious embrace.
Realizing it's my turn, I fumble into the kitchen to reacquaint myself with the art of operating a stove and proceed to prepare our favorite breakfast. Since I am secretly twelve I feel no shame in making amusing shapes out of the pancakes.
"It's Pictionary with food!" I've told her previous times, much to her dismay and my amusement.
Gleefully shuffling back into the bedroom, I arrange the various food and drink around her and reappropriate my half of the blankets.
She grudgingly gives up her conquest of the entire mattress and we make up stories about the pancake dinosaurs that briefly adorn our plates. We finish and she gathers the remains for cleanup.
A few moments later she returns. Little does she know I have completely reclaimed the blankets for my own nefarious purposes. She somehow manages to convince me to opening up a space for her in my recent fortification is in my best interests and then leans in to whisper into my ear...
What does she say? If you want to know you'll have to tell me a little about yourself. Extra credit for finishing this chapter with your own ending!
List of Good Things and Details About Me
Reading - Funsies and work, learning never stops
Writing - Working on the next great novel. Currently have a bunch of outlines. Will be finished sometime this century.
BBC News - Least biased I've found, quick access to world headlines
Gym - Lifting mostly, various cardio (just started to zumba because bikes/treadmills are BORING!!! :)
Camping/Hiking - Have all my own stuff, former boy scout
Not religious or looking to find it, won't harass the holy rollers though.
Trump will start WW3 and 4. Clinton will do anything for the highest bidder. We're probably doomed for the next four years.
Pro Rights - No one should have a say in your speech, ovaries, self defense, or privacy. (especially old men regulating ovaries, seriously wtf?)
Dry humor, to the point where sometimes people can't tell when I'm joking.
Wanting to make a difference for the next generation. Might be too late for my own short people. We'll see.
Music - I'll go to your bluegrass if you come to Volbeat. Open to most everything except new rap, because i'm not cool.
Comics - I'm Batman. True Story.
d20's - I have some 20+ year old friendships due to these.
EQ - I'm trained to listen and not just check you out. (I'll still check you out, there is a good chance I'll also remember what you say ;)
List of Bad Things
Writing a nasty list of "I won't acknowledge your existence if you get you/your/you're wrong, etc". We're all different and that's OK, just be cool and everything will be fine. :)
To those who make it this far and don't just drool over all my shirtless mirror selfies, feel free to type out a few lines of your own!
If you're really stuck on an opener, try one of these:
Pancakes or Waffles?
Team Cap or Team Iron Man? (careful with this one, I will become a twelve year old when I answer)
What does our first date look like?
Thanks, and good luck with your search!
