I recently broke up with a woman that I had dated for about four months. Nothing remarkable about the relationship, just someone to do "big people" stuff with. Anyway, I recently got an e-mail from a mutual acquaintance, who doubles as the gossip hub of the nursing office they both work in. The correspondence went something like this: SK: Sorry to hear about you and (DG). ME: No big deal. (Different stages mumbo jumbo) SK: That's not the only reason I heard. She told some of the girls that sex was never comfortable with you. That is was like fucking a fence post. ME: What? SK; Yeah. You ought to come to our Christmas party. Most of the nurses have heard some version of the story. Um ... cool? I didn't make the Christmas party, but I do know where a bunch of them go out every Wednesday night. What a set up.
