I actually spent my entire Saturday in the basement on my computer and never went upstairs, that's kind of creepy. I just opened the nearby window at 2 am Sunday and the cool breeze is coming inside.
I checked the temperature and it's mild at -0'C with a -4'C windchill. I can see the moon through the treetops in the backyard. It's an eerie feeling to realize you skipped an entire day.
I have to laugh though. I texted my friend upstairs earlier on Saturday around 4 pm. I have to share it with you :)
I have the coolest friends. So what was I doing with my Saturday that had me sitting in front of the computer all day you might ask? No, it wasn't porn, okay not all day at least. I had a couple projects that I needed to get done this week while on vacation. The first was one of my resolutions for the end of calendar year 2017.
A couple years ago I published a chapbook of poetry under a pseudonym with the intent that, some day, I would update and re-publish it under my real name. Well, after over a year of telling my publisher friend that it was still a work in progress including a bungled first draft I decided to abandon what I called 'Book 2'. I decided to release my poetry on my website instead, a link to which can be found here.
I got a couple things sorted out in the real world online and then continued on the crusade on Twitter against the blunders of our rather unpopular Prime Minister. It is not hard to point out the err of his ways when they are published so frequently in the mainstream media. History classes a century from now will remember us for our childish leader Prime Minister Socks immediately followed by how the economy of Canada almost collapsed in the early twenty-first century under his rule.
I don't want to make this entry political so I am going to continue on with some more answers to the questionnaire, right after I close the window because it is getting frigging cold in here.
Q: At what age did you have your first kiss, your first sexual experience? Was it bad?
A: My first real kiss came about five years before my first sexual experience. It was with my girlfriend at the end of my high school years, at age 18. I think it might have been within the first day or two after we met. We were walking along the railroad tracks north of town and decided to sit down in the grass and talk about life. After a few minutes I leaned in and kissed her and the rest they say is history. I am still friends with her today.
My first sexual experience was with the woman I would eventually marry, at age 23. It was not how I intended my first time to be. I had hoped it would take place about five years before but that was not to be the case. And to answer the second part, no, it was not bad. I lost my virginity and we had a great weekend together at my apartment in the city.
Q: Has it affected the way you view sex as an adult?
A: Well, no not really seeing as I was an adult for all of my sexual experiences.
Q: How many sexual experiences have you had? How long is your longest relationship?
A: Okay well that question is getting a bit too personal I think but I will answer it anyways. A recent study in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour found that the average Generation Xer has had ten sexual encounters in their life by this time. I just did the list and, well, I will not dispute that number. I guess you could say that following my divorce from my ex- I made up for lost time.
I never cheated on her during our almost nine years in a dreadful marriage though I did come very close one time that I wanted it to happen. I met this beautiful intelligent woman while I was working as an assistant manager for a convenience store. She was a customer who would stop in on her way to work and a co-worker told me she had expressed an interest in me. After stopping her one night I agreed to meet up with her the next morning to talk. We started meeting up several mornings in the week and we started sharing poetry with each other. Yes, poetry, I told you I am a romantic at heart, albeit sometimes misguided.
I felt a strong attraction toward her and I knew she did toward me. When I was close to the point of having an affair with her she had second thoughts and broke off our friendship. She ended up sleeping with, what sounds like, a random guy because she couldn't sleep with me. How do I know; because she wrote me a poem about it confessing her actions. A short time later she received a work transfer she had applied for before we met and relocated to another state. I never saw or heard from her again.
That being said in the final months of our marriage I met someone online that I hoped would evolve into a relationship but when I returned to Ontario I discovered that was not to be the case. I believe she did step out on me in the same final months and as I explained earlier she married an old friend of hers just two weeks following our divorce.
Now, excluding my ex-wife, my longest relationship appears to be about six months unless you count the woman who had an affair with me and that was somewhere around two years total. My shortest relationship would have been a one night stand I had in the mid 2000's.
