FACT #3: I am a textbook Tinder-swiper never-talker.

I often Tinder when doing my morning <ahem> duties, or when I’m sitting at a busy stop light that I know isn’t gonna turn for the next 30 minutes, or when I have that weird momentary insane thought dating again would be fun. I have matched with quite a list in my bored endeavors now, and haven’t initiated contact with a one of them since my last breakup. It seems I *am* the very problem that Tinder is.

FACT #4: I buy a lot of bananas. I always have bananas. I almost never eat bananas.

I am not exaggerating. I quite literally always have bananas sitting on my countertop. I always have well-intentioned diet plans for eating lots more of them and loading up on all that potassium my muscles so desperately crave. Yet for some reason (even though I eat fairly healthy) each time I go shopping, I grab a fresh bunch while thinking the thought oops. The bananas are brown again. This week. THIS is the week I eat them all. For sure. No exceptions! I WILL be disciplined and make it happen.

And they always turn brown. At best I have only one or two bananas left before they go bad, but even that is rare. Hell. Even right now I have brown bananas on my countertop. And no, those are not for décor. Though, maybe I should claim they are. Then I’d at least have a reason for my money-wasting!

Oooh, look. I even have some right now! They really add to the place, don’t you think?


Whew! Glad I got all that off my chest. I totally understand if you want to seek blogging refuge under someone else’s digital roof who isn’t so dang famoused-up. Er. I mean f***ed up. I’m definitely not your usual cup of cleansing tea.

As you were.

Oh, and hey! I removed the comments system from my website since it slowed things down and seemed to have never-ending spam. Instead, let’s have the discussion on the Facebook post! Here it is, you can do it right here… And will you give it a “like” real quick? That’s always very helpful to me.

I feel you should know these facts about me if you’re going to keep following SDL. If I were following me, I’d wanna know. So, in the name of personal integrity… Hahaha.
