The aliens returned me unharmed but weirded out.
Life returned to normal pretty much immediately. With all the normalcy I discovered something about myself…
I am lonely.
I decided to host a dinner party. So I called some peepz and told them to be at my place at 5pm sharp.
Of course, I didn’t tell Finn he was coming over to meet my parents until he showed up for dinner. We were both super nervous so we sat together on the couch in awkward silence until my mom and dad showed up for dinner.
I made potato and truffle tort which is my dad’s favorite. I was seriously trying to butter him up so he’d be less against me having a guy in my life again.
It seemed to work. While Mom and I cleaned the dishes, Dad and Finn chatted. God only knows what they were discussing but they were laughing and not screaming so I suppose it doesn’t really matter.
Meanwhile, Mom and I had a powwow in the kitchen.
“Mom, I think I really like this guy. I might let him marry me!”
The days continued to drag on and my bank account continued to remain empty.
I did the usual. Fished for my dinner.
Grabbed honey and produce from the garden.
I even took to selling some of my possessions. Anything to make money. It sounds silly but when you have a horse money goes way faster than when you just have a dog. That $36,000 was gone in like a month and the stupid wishing well won’t cough up another car.
I decided to meditate for an answer. Copernicus didn’t understand the whole sitting quietly thing. Mostly because I don’t think he understands the purpose of quiet or sitting. I’m not sure those things are in his program.
I came to a conclusion during my meditation and set my plan in motion.
I asked Finn to come to the Spring Festival with me. He had to wait for me though because I had some important egg finding business to deal with before I could talk to him.
After I found all my eggs then I allowed him to lose to me in horseshoes.
Finally, I stopped being a weirdo and got down to business. We had our first slow dance among the spring flowers.
“Hey, Finn, uh…hm…well…do you want to move in with me?”
“Oh! Er–well. Yes. Actually my house was feeling rather lonely since the dogs and horses finally got adopted. I’d be nice to have someone waiting for me at the end of the day again.”
And so…roommates! Only sexier.
