Baffled and Pleased
Usually O'lover does what I want. If i want him to give me an enema... Ok just kidding. but he does give me methylcobalamin shots in the butt, ok really upper hip. the guy runs circles around me. he's still going strong long after i've capped my day with doing the dishes and putting in the last load of laundry.
for instance, today while i was leisurely making smoothies he efficiently emptied out my three clothes closets, sorting out weird things like a framed tiny brian kershisnik painting that had been hiding amongst my shawls, a mike mahoney bowl, and a very well articulated plastic man wearing blue swimming trunks. don't ask.
So i brought O'lover a smoothie, climbed over the mountain ranges of clothes piled on our bed and nestled amongst some pillows to watch O'lover perform the feat called operation organizing Raquel's clothes. meanwhile i was going to write a post about how i'm going to invent some friends to comment on my blog and say nice things to me like "Raquel, you are so NOT narcissistic." or "Raquel, we're coming over to braid your hair into cornrows" or... but all that was rudely interrupted by the alien who has taken possession of my lover's body.
"OK, Raquel. you know how i just made a blank canvas for you?" and he pointed at my now empty closets.
"You mean for you?" I asked.
"well, now that i've cleared out your closets you can put everything back in but i'd recommend wiping your shelves down with a wet rag first."
And he left. just like that.
and now i'm STUNNED. Oliver usually does things for me, what are the implications of this mutiny? This task was nowhere on my Saturday to-do list, but i'm adaptable...i mean, i can sleep anywhere, under any conditions, like by the side of the road, or on a slanted rooftop or WHEREVER I LAND. certainly tonight i can curl up with all these hangers.
But then Oliver just called to me from upstairs and announced that he's researching more about tantric love, and gosh darn it if i won't have this bed cleared off as fast as you can say SIGN ME UP AND I"M THERE.
