The Thirteenth

Every once in a while, I reserve the right to be whiny. As I wrote this post last night, I had a headache, and all I could think about was how much I dreaded going to work today. We have to move a case today with a lot of little objects in it. I have moved this case at least three times already, and I’m tired of moving it. Everything has to be taken out in a certain order and then placed back in the same order. It’s a real pain in the ass. The objects are bad enough, but the case is huge and unwieldy. In addition, we will have to move other cases to make this one fit where we want it to go. The whole thing will be a pain in the ass, and I’m just not looking forward to it. 

Besides today is the 13th, and rarely does any good ever come of the number 13. It’s also the birthday of a friend of mine who passed away last year. I miss him dearly, but he had been so sick for such a long time. I truly believe that he is in a better place now. He had suffered so much. I will be thinking of him today. He was one of the earliest people to read my blog and often commented until he got so sick and could barely type anymore. He was a good friend who got me through some very tough times, especially back in the years I was a teacher and before he got sick. Even when he got sick, he was still a great friend.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    I hope the day has gone better than expected. I understand the hassles of tedious tasks. Also, thank you for sharing about the anniversary of your friend’s death. It’s something I have on my calendar when a friend has died, to remember both their birthday and home going.
    Although you may think it “whining,” you clearly found a 13 worthy of further notice! Mmmmmm! Cake for days!

    Please accept my condolences on the death of your dear friend.

    As for cake I’d enjoy the young man’s body. Fabulous ass and I’m sure I’d enjoy what’s out front from which I could nurse for years.
