Today, the Unicorn and I went down to the zoo.
It was a lovely day. I feel like I haven’t seen the sun in days with all the warm thunderstorms going on in the middle of winter here. We both needed some fresh air and I was in dire need of human interaction. It was nice to spend a few hours together, interacting, exploring our natural curiosities and natural thirsts for knowledge.
There were a few interesting conversations that took place today. First, on the way there we were discussing his New Year’s Eve. He went to visit his best friend out of state and they went to a fancy night club. Apparently, on the way there, his friend asked the Unicorn to pick up condoms because he was too shy to do it himself.
Daisy: So did any of you boys use the condoms?
Inner Daisy: Pleasesayno Pleasesayno
Unicorn: No, I did kiss a random girl at midnight though
Inner Daisy: Dammit, not exactly what I wanted to hear but I can work with it
Daisy: Oh man, I was hoping for a better story than that!
So I think I played that off rather well. On the way home was the stranger conversation. I started to let him in a little to the secret life of Daisy. I didn’t go into gruesome details, but I let him know that I’ve had some fun since my divorce. Somehow he took that and changed the conversation a little.
Unicorn: Sometimes my emotions and my heart are really ready to be in something permanent, but my head tells me I am not ready yet
Inner Daisy: With me right??
Daisy: I know exactly how you feel, I don’t know if I am quite there yet either.
Then we came back to my house and I cooked dinner followed by having him for dessert. After he got home, this was his follow up text:
“I wanted to mention this while I was at your house, but I can tell you’ve lost weight…..it shows a bit in your face :)”
And I melted. He is constantly complementing me. Mostly for my brains, but also for my beauty. No one has ever treated me this well. Everything feels so natural. Part of me doesn’t care that he kissed that girl at the bar. I know that he values our mental connection and I think he will be hard pressed to find that with someone else. I know I am.
I have the normal Sunday night blues(especially coming off of this two week vacation), but I will be going to bed with a smile on my face and warmth in my heart.
