What Are We?

What Are We?

Welcome to the Secret Thoughts of Reason… Why is it that men get so freaked out when a woman asks, “What are we?” What exactly is it about the words “What are we?” that send you into a frenzy? Does the word “we” equate to “marriage” or “life-long partner” or maybe you hear the word “forever”. While I cannot speak for every woman, I will speak for the sound ones…. When a woman asks, “What are we?”….She only wants to know what is occurring between you AND her. For example: Are “we” friends? Are “we” dating? Are “we” just hooking up? Read more »

Welcome to the Love World of Reason… “Sorry ma’am my co-worker…” I say as I look at the ground, hoping Louise hasn’t seen my face. “Ma’am?” Louise says laughing, “How old do you think I am?” “Oh no, it was just a way….” I stumble on my words. “I was just being polite ma’am…uh mm…miss.” “Well polite is a very subjective thing wouldn’t you say?” Louise says. “No, uh yes, yes, of course ma’am…I mean miss.” I say, still looking at the ground. I try to walk away before Louise can recognize me. “Leaving so soon?” Louise says. “Yes, I Read more »

Welcome to the Secret Thoughts of Reason…   I was at subway the other day and I saw a black man waiting in line to place his order, and my first thought was: where are these subway workers? They need to hurry up and come serve my black man. No, I did not know this man, I had never seen him before, but he was still a black man…my black man. No later than a few seconds later something happened inside of me that I cannot explain. My thought changed from this is my black man and they need to hurry Read more »

Welcome to the Love World of Reason… I’m lying in bed thinking about what Michelle told me. Louise is married. I shouldn’t be surprised. A woman as perfect as Louise wouldn’t be single for long. I guess Mrs. McDowe was wrong, fate hasn’t brought us together. But there is some good news: Louise is only here to visit, so after she leaves I can go back to normal…only thinking about her every other day as opposed to everyday. Wonderful. I’m definitely not getting any sleep tonight. I get up and go through the books that Michelle left. The books Louise Read more »

Welcome to the Love World of Reason… Seeing Louise sends me into a panic so I rush to the backroom. I text Michelle so she can take Louise’s table. “Jerry what the hell was that?” Jonny asks. “What do you mean?” I say, trying to sound confused. “You ran in here like someone was chasing you.” Jonny says angrily, “Did you even greet that customer that just walked in?” “Uh, yeah, yeah I did.” I lie, “Look Jonny, to be honest, I’m really not feeling well. I think it’s probably better if I just hang out back here.” “Hang out?” Read more »

Welcome to the Love World of Reason… “I’m sorry, you what?” I say choking on my ice tea. “So you and my Michey have been friends for a while now, is that right?” Mrs. McDowe says. “Um yes, we have.” I say. So I guess we’re going to pretend like you didn’t just tell me you put your husband in a coma? Cool. “So are you heading home after you leave here, or are you going to continue driving aimlessly?” Mrs. McDowe says. “I think I probably should head home.” I say laughing, “It’s getting late.” “You come back anytime Read more »

Welcome to the Mystery World of Reason… “One more time, tell us exactly what happened when this woman, came here.” I say to Jason, the gas station clerk showing him the picture of our killer. “Well she came in and was looking around, but she didn’t buy anything. Now I realize she was probably just waiting for everyone to leave.” Jason says, “When everyone was gone she came up to the counter and handed me this letter. Then she said, ‘Wait ten minutes then call the police’. I tried asking her what this was all bout but she just walked Read more »
