I couldn’t disagree more!

Dear Amy: I am blessed to have retired before the age of 50. I am now in my mid-50s, and my life is great, but my in-laws think I should go back to work. We had a fairly okay relationship before my retirement, but now when I am around them, they tell me I amContinue reading “I couldn’t disagree more!”

Say what?!

Dear Amy: Before the pandemic, I met a wonderful woman and fell in love. The catch? She was from New Zealand and had to return home in November 2019. She and I made arrangements for me to move there. Then the pandemic hit and created unending border closures. My flight was canceled by the airline.Continue reading “Say what?!”

… stays in Prague, apparently!

Because, he has a girlfriend. (Of course he does.) I figured I’d take things to the next level today by ditching Sonya. He balked at that and arranged for me, him, and a friend of his to go out tomorrow. I called him out on it, like, if you just want to be friends, that’sContinue reading “… stays in Prague, apparently!”

Go Meg, go!

I can’t believe this! The guy I like here in Prague seems to like me, too. That never happens! Only for other people! Never for Meg! Go me! His name is Georg. He’s such a dreamboat. In my honor, and referring to me as the guest of honor, he brought home-cooked food to the writersContinue reading “Go Meg, go!”

Fun commentary today!

Dear Amy: I’m at a complete loss right now. I am an asexual person in my late-30s. I am in a five-year relationship and am in school pursuing a degree. About six weeks ago, an adult classmate of mine started pursuing a friendship with me (he has a wife and children). We’ve become really closeContinue reading “Fun commentary today!”

Solid ground.

I’ve been musing about lost friendships lately, and it makes me sad. This isn’t about Sonya! I wuvz my Sonya! I’m having a great time with her, as always! Actually, it’s the best time yet. Past times with her have featured my attempted romantic relationships ending in disaster, which she’s very tolerant of. We needContinue reading “Solid ground.”

Party at Sonya’s place!

The trip has gone well so far, which I’m afraid to type without jinxing myself, but there it is. Today is a day of rest and recovery, because yesterday’s writers group was an all-day affair, going on for well over twelve hours. I had a blast! So today we’re staying in, ‘cause Sonya has aContinue reading “Party at Sonya’s place!”

Watch out, Prague! Meg is in da house!

Here I am on vacay!! I’m at Sonya’s writers group as we speak. They spend several hours just sitting at the table here, writing, so I worked on a 250-word story for the current contest at NYC Midnight, and now I figured I’d blog. I’m supposed to be beta reading for the other members, butContinue reading “Watch out, Prague! Meg is in da house!”

The day the friendship died.

Dear Amy: My husband and I are retired. We have a good life in a city that we moved to about seven years ago. We’ve been able to make lots of friends. I’m so pleased by the variety of people in our friend group. What I’m not pleased about is that one of my dearestContinue reading “The day the friendship died.”

Loads of commentary tonight!

Dear Annie: I have been with my partner for 10 years. While he was going through his divorce, his mother lived with us. At the time, she had nothing nice to say about his ex-wife. She acted like seeing her was a chore when one of the children graduated high school (I was not allowedContinue reading “Loads of commentary tonight!”
