By the time I left work yesterday, an hour and a half early, my migraine had backed up and started four times. Poor Lion wanted so badly to do something for me and I couldn’t give him any clue how to help. Finally I fell asleep for a bit and then ate dinner. After standing under hot water in the shower for a while, I felt human again. That’s not to say I felt better. I just didn’t feel like I had an alien in my head fighting to get out. Needless to say, we had a quiet, non-play night.
We are in the process of trying to figure out how FML will work for us. Initially Lion thought he wanted lots of rules. I’m sure if I had jumped on the bandwagon he would have realized quickly that he didn’t really want so many rules. If I made him ask before he did anything it would drive both of us crazy right away. I haven’t had much time to think of any new rules since my head was exploding yesterday. I read Lion’s post in the middle of the fireworks. It will take me some time to take stock and decide which of his suggestions I might want to adopt. I may even come up with a few of my own. It’s definitely a work in progress.
Since I’m not normally in charge and I don’t really have a desire to be, there’s no way I would ever jump in with both feet to take over. We both need baby steps. I’m sure we’ll be fine tuning for a very long time. If something doesn’t work, does it just need to be tweaked or does it need to go? Maybe something Lion asked for is not really what he thought he wanted. Is it too tiresome to ask for permission to do X all the time? Should he really be expected to do Y all the time? And, of course, there will be new ideas popping up all the time. I know Lion. He loves his new ideas.
I never know what the future holds with Lion. He always surprises me with something completely different. I blame the internet. There are too many people like him on it.
