Julie calls me her “girl”.
Any other woman I would have firmly put my foot down and said, “don’t say that!” but with her I’ve learned it’s her way of telling me that she gets me.
Today I was in a pissy mood. I’ve taken the rest of this week off just to spend with her and to be here for her during her surgery.
Instead of enjoying a peaceful few days of laziness and relaxation I’ve had to deal with phone calls and emails about work.
Today kicked my ass. In fact, I don’t have the words to describe today but I do have a few obscene hand gestures that would come close.
At one point I found myself being pissy with her.
“Do you really need to be so condescending when you talk to me?”
I then get that look. You know. THAT look.
At which point I just said, “hey…I’m entitled every once in a while.”
That’s when she said it….
“There’s my girl!”
