P.S. I Have a Boyfriend

I am very behind with my schoolwork right now.  I have a research paper (5-10 pages) due on Wednesday, and I have barely started.  I have reading to catch up for my Literary Interpretation class, and stupid modules I have to work through in my online classes.  And yet…and yet, I am so flippin’ happy right now!

Yes, I did feel like an asshole after letting the Fireman in on the scoop, but moreover, I felt so at peace and content knowing that WT was mine all mine.  (Just for the record, I knew he was, even if he didn’t).  All day long I was calling him my boyfriend.  “Oh, hey boyfriend.  What’s up?,”  “P.S. I have a boyfriend,” “I miss my boyfriend,” you get the picture.  I think I’m still in shock that a man who was so dedicated to being completely free and single for so long wanted to have a girlfriend.  He likes to tell me it’s my voodoo magic.  Perhaps.

Of course, I told my girls here (Beks and Mel) about the turn of events, and they insisted that NOW they have to meet him.  It’ll be hard to find a time when we are all available, but I want them to get to know him.  Even if Bekki wasn’t so sure.  She asked me what would happen if he hates her and she has to stab him in the eye with a fork.  I assured her that he would love her, because I do, and because he loves me, and also because she is just that awesome.  Then she asked what would happen if he loves her so much that he can’t resist her and threw her down on the floor and started making sweet, sweet love to her.  I told her if that happened, I would have to clock him with a rolling pin and drag him away (like the hen on the Looney Toons cartoons).  And that is just a small sampling of why I love Bekki so much.  She is completely random, and gets that I am, too.  When I told Mel some of the things that he had said, she said she loves him already.  I think they just want to make sure he’s good enough for me.  He is…infinitely good.

I even cried happy tears last night when I got this message, “I love you with all that I am and all I want to be for you.”  I was telling Honey one day that he is all of the good qualities in everyone I’ve ever loved, combined into one person.  The playfulness, the humor, the sweetness, the honesty and openness, the prowess in the bedroom, the love.  He has it all.  There are so many moments when I think, and THAT’S why I love him.  The reasons are different, and there are millions upon millions.

I am so in love, and so very happy.

P.S.  I have a boyfriend.

    Just so I understand this completely now, that means the chances of having sex with you have dropped dramatically, Right? Just trying to make sure I understand fully…

    All boyfriends must pass the girlfriend check. I am sure WT will pass his check with flying colors.
    For his sake, I surely do hope so.
    (And hey- I heard you have a boyfriend!)

    You might want to also mention to him, just as an aside and all, that if he ever breaks your heart, I will jump in my van and drive out to kick his ass (actually, I’ll bring the Evil Twin to do it- he’s a redneck who likes to fight).

    Ron – Presumptuous, aren’t we?

    Ms. Moon – I know he will. And, you heard correctly!!! Yippieeee!

    AP – I DO deserve it! Hell yeah! He’ll be just fine 😉

    Penelope – 🙂 I love it when you call me sweets!

    ETW – I’ll make sure he sees this. Nothing like a crazy lady in a van to scare a man…

    Didn’t the last one past the girlfriend check? Ok, that was snarky. I expected hot fireman updates and now, nada. 😦

    He passed your check…

    Somehow this posting made me seem so much awesomer than I really am. I noticed you didn’t write anything about my inability to keep up on texts or walk in a parking lot! P.S. Your boyfriend wants me…bad

    Bekki – You ARE awesome, and no, he doesn’t want you, he wants ME, just like your mom.

  11. 11 Bekki February 24, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    Well, since I already HAD your mom it’s not fair to compare. She tasted like crystal meth and shame 🙂 Ooooh, that’s harsh! (For the world…I’m kidding)

    Yay! Bekki sounds great. Oh, we were talking about the boyfriend. Yeah, him too. I’m very happy for you, girl.

    Lola – She is, and so is he. Thanks babe. 😀

  14. 14 Bekki February 27, 2009 at 1:00 pm

    I should meet this Lola…she thinks I am great. Wait til she meets me and realizes that I am a TOTAL MATH GEEK/DORK
