Wilbur and I have a wonderful relationship. We grow together as life moves on. These days you can't miss Wilbur - he's the first thing you see when I walk by. He brings me comfort during my monthly rage blackouts and sage advice when I'm faced with a particular situation. Wilbur is my shelter from the storm of life (sniffle).
Most people don't pay too much attention to their intuition. I do believe we all have it to an extent. For me, it's like a feeling that something just isn't right. Most of the time it's indescribable but it's there.
A few years back I went out with this guy to a jam at a club downtown. I had a sneaky feeling it wasn't going to be a good evening but I went ahead with it anyway. When he came to pick me up he looked almost green - mostly because I towered over him in my 3" stilettos. We get to the club and it was jumpin' jumpin'! I met up with some friends and immediately proceeded to the dance floor. After a few songs, I found my date in a corner nursing a Molson Canadian. I asked him if he was having a good time and he said no (the audacity!) because he just saw his ex with her new man and he still wasn't quite over it and asked to go home. I was full & ready to tell him check ya later but of course, he left his car keys in my apartment. Blast! We had been at the club for a grand total of 30 minutes. Had I listened to my gut I would've either just gone to this jam myself or left him to his own devices.
Remembering that fateful evening is making me snicker right now because I went on to date this poor soul. Yet again, I didn't have a good feeling about the relationship but silly Athena went ahead with it anyway. Of course, it all ended in heartbreak. He broke up with me then wanted me back and I told him no blankin' way. For once I heeded the advice of my gut!
These days my gut and I find ourselves by ourselves. We're ok for the most part. We're still unemployed & we're still benefactors of government cheese. I trust my gut more than ever these days. It's one of the few constants in my life at the moment. No matter where I end up, Wilbur will always be there to comfort me. Now all he & I have to do is shape ourselves up!
