An opinion, ie. that a straight male can fix a lesbian relationship because he knows SO MUCH that they haven't even thought of communication.  It's a crazy idea IMO.

Interesting  you took it that way. I just thought he was suggesting that they talk about it, you know, instead of guessing. I didn't think he was volunteering to be a counsellor. Still don't.

Well, ok.  Wouldn't be the first time I was wrong... even the first time tonight...

Wouldn't be the first time for me either but that's the way I took it.

What the hell are you going on about?

Are you now or have you ever been a lesbian ?

Come on, guys, I hate seeing you fight.  Hug it out.

I’m no couples counsellor, but have you thought of using discussion as a means to figure where this is going with this person who has you meeting her relatives like “you’re the one”?  I hear it has been used to great effect in other people’s relationships....

I'm not sure how I'd start that conversation without causing her to panic...  If I try and express the idea that I'm not sure that "she's the one", she's going to think I've already decided that she isn't the one.  I feel like I have to figure out what I actually want before I try to have that conversation with her.

I was never able to handle that conversation - no matter which side I was on, no matter how I felt.  If I felt she was the one, I didn't want to show my cards.  If I didn't, I didn't want to scare her away.

So... one of the things that happens when you become a parent, besides finding all moms hot as hell, is that you have nothing to talk about except your kid. 

I am becoming almost a dull suburban dad, with nothing interesting to savour except for weekend trips to Canadian Tire.  CT, BTW, is one of the most fascinating things out there.  It's the retail version of a Coen Bros movie but I digress for sure.

Easy seems pretty into human food now, and is refusing to eat mush.  He also seems to be into music.  The keyboard on his schoenhut piano comes about to my knee.  Joan zip tied it to a railing in the living room, so he uses it to stand up and then pounds on it.  Well, he used to but now his musical sense is evolving and he plays one note at a time !  I responded with a reward for that, by playing Daft Punk for him, which he liked of course.  It's good.  We need a keyboard player.

And my looong parental sojourn finishes when I return to work Monday.  In my time off, I watched Easy learn to crawl, eat solid food, climb up on things, wave to people and this morning he said 'dadda'.

Altogether now: awwwwwwww  :D :D :D

"Yeet" is something going around the internet. I gather it means flung forcefully or discarded with great vigor.  I'm not sure exactly where it came from or why, but I wanted to use it so that I can be one of the cool kids.

Oldest grand daughter left for Ireland yesterday to tour with the UBC women's rugby team. She's pumped for her first university experience.

Wow.  Good for her!  That must be exciting.  Hopefully they kick ass.

So, the missus is out of a job for a couple of weeks. As I mentioned her place of work has not been doing very well. They've now been bought, by a more successful place who will be making changes to try to turn things around and are now closed for renovations and stuff. While they've promised to keep the servers, she's not sure if she's going to be kept on. She has a hunch she'll be replaced with a manager from the mother branch. She tries to pretend it's not a big deal for her, but she's a little tense.   She has her side-hustle, but I don't think it pays the bills. I might be more worried for her than she is for herself.  But if even clueless Brenda can get hired in this town, my girl ought to be okay.

Good luck to her.  Are you going to support her if she's unemployed ?  Or maybe pay for dinner ? 

The smart people are starting to defect from my group.  My boss left during my parental leave... the new boss wears a turban.  Seems like a nice guy, but he's a yes-man working for a yes-woman. 

So I have had a few days to try to figure out how to play it.  Unfortunately, my answer is to keep my head as low as possible and wait this out until the next regime change.  I have had 3 bosses in 1 year so it should be about 4 months.
