Lion has said in the past that he has no idea where 2.0 came from. I do. She arrived right after a disagreement we had. I wrote a post about being in pain a lot of the time and Lion told me if I was in so much pain I should see a doctor. It was basically a “suck it up, Buttercup” moment with a smattering of “get off your ass and do something about it.” I figured he should practice what he preached. 2.0 isn’t in pain. She causes pain. 2.0 doesn’t have excuses and she doesn’t listen to any from Lion either. She’s the one who tells Lion to suck it up.
A few weeks ago, I changed pain meds. These aren’t working as well. I can either up the dosage, which will make me more tired, or try something else. 1.0 has been around a lot more in the past few weeks. She feels pain whether 2.0 does or not. She feels the effect of Lion’s impending unemployment whether 2.0 does or not. This morning, Lion’s post dealt with the absence of 2.0. I don’t know if he realized it at the time he was writing, but he was issuing another “suck it up, Buttercup” message. Lion has thrown down the gauntlet once again. He asked for it.
Today hasn’t started off exactly how I had envisioned. Lion slept late, which is fine since he’s been so tired. But I’d hoped we’d have manscaping done by now. We have chores to do and I wanted Lion’s butt in the sling by mid afternoon. Now it is already mid afternoon and we’re waiting for the numbing cream to take effect so I can do the manscaping. Then we’ll start the chores and maybe by late afternoon Lion’s butt will be in a sling. The truth is, Lion’s butt is already in the proverbial sling now that 2.0 is back in town. She’s watching his every move. So whether his butt ever hits the actual sling or not, he’s in for some action today/tonight.
I agree I’ve been lax for the past few weeks. There have been issues. 1.0 has been too nice. Good thing 2.0 doesn’t have that problem.
