"Don't gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold..."

Location: Falls Church, Virginia, United States

I have a lot more questions than answers, but I just keep asking. I constantly want to leave, but somehow manage to stay. I am both perfectly happy and completely miserable because of it. I think I am misunderstood but that could just be a huge misunderstanding, either way I guess the best way to put it is, "I ain't often right, but I've never been wrong."


The woman at the deli counter knows me better than you do

True story, she might know me too well and she thinks it’s a bloody shame that I am single. Which is 100% completely true, it is a shame. The thing I am not sure of in all of this is whether or not it is sad that she knows me so well. And if it is sad, is it sad for me or for her? All I know about her is that she works at Giant and knows a lot about me, and gives me non-denominational holiday cards. This woman knows exactly what I order, I don’t even have to ask anymore and if that was all she knew I would just say she is really good at her job. But, she also knows my birthday, what I do, what city I live in and my dating status. While this is not entirely normal I don’t really have a problem with it, I can use an ego boost as much as the next guy. So, if it comes from the deli lady who happens to slice my Boar’s Head Turkey just the way I like, well I will take that every time. After all, she is right, it is a shame that I am single.
