My 67-year-old Boyfriend

. . . is possibly coming tomorrow. Ok, so without explaining the entire story in this blog (partly because it makes me ill, partly because it is very embarrassing) I have a skeleton in my closet. The long and short of it, had a summer letter-writing fling with an older man. When I think older, I think like 30-40,ok 50 at the MOST. (We all know I've been holding out for an older man) No no no, he was 67. I kindly explained to him, having learned his age, that he was a dear FRIEND to me, and I enjoy our FRIENDship, hope we can still be FRIENDS. . . then he asked me to marry him over the phone on Christmas Eve.

ANYWAY---I have reason to think in the past few months that he very well may be schizophrenic. . . bipolar. . . whatever you want to call it. My 67 year old boyfriend is psycho. The last letter I received from him was in Februaryish, and it scared the socks off of me. So I have not written/called him since-and he's coming to my work tomorrow for his mother's birthday. Yes, his mother lives at my work. Don't ask questions. I don't want to talk about it. SOOO-I told my boss today that if this man shows up, I am leaving. And he understood. Because I'm 25, and I don't want a 67 year old boyfriend.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha. Oh my gosh. That story is CLASSIC. I love every bit of it. Seriously, it makes me cry I'm laughing so hard. Not many people have the luxury of telling such a beautiful true story of an excellent experience in their life. :) I love that you have a blog!!!
So. How'd it go? Did he propose again?
