Part 1 Fiction story - Free tickets

It's not too often a story is told about somebody average. How sad is that? There's always the story about the rich chick, some pretty skinny blonde chick, or something of the sort. Even sadder still is the typical she finds a guy, she likes the guy, the guy likes her, and so on. Boy those stories are so boring it's not even funny. They always end the same way. It's kind of sickening and too predictable. It would be nice to have a story that wasn't that way. Well, here it goes.
She wasn't anyone special really just an ordinary girl from an ordinary town, Franklin, TN. It wasn't a small town but not a big metropolitan city either. It's just ordinary. Her name is Shae Abernathy. She's 25. She's single. She has brunet hair, hazel eyes, and is medium built. Actually, she's a bit on the chubby side. She hates her weight, but who doesn't? She walks and exercises with her Wii fit. She does the yoga, strength training, and the boxing.
She lived in a four bedroom house with her mother, Rose. Rose is a short stout woman. She has coal black hair and dark brown eyes. Rose's husband disappeared two years ago. No one has been able to find him. He was on his way home when he went missing. The only thing the police found was his car. There are no leads on where this man could be.
Shae did live alone in a one bedroom apartment for a while. That was until Rose was diagnosed with breast cancer. Shae finished out her lease in her apartment and then moved back home. She hated doing that because she loved her single life. She was going to miss that.
See, she used to live in a big city, Chicago, IL. How did she get from Tennessee to Illinois? Well, like everyone else who moves to a big city. She got a job working for a big accounting firm, . This of course makes her a CPA.
While living in the big city she used go out every weekend with her girlfriends. A lot of the times she would go home with different guys she would meet there. Yes, she had protected sex. That was one thing she insisted on. If the guy didn't have a rubber or she was out then the guy went home. It was as simple as that. She also took birth control pills. She definitely wanted to make sure she didn't get pregnant by some idiot.
Back to the main part of the story. The firm she worked for in Chicago had a location in Nashville. This was great. Now she could move back in with Rose to take care of her. There were a few clubs so she could still go out. She still kept in touch with four of her high school friends. Three were girls; Gina, Katie, and Tara. The one guy is Tye. Tara is the youngest of them just turning 21. She is a tall slender black girl. She is single. She had a baby boy a year ago. He died two weeks after he was born. The doctors think SIDS but nobody really knows for sure. She's still in college and is studying to be a social worker. Katie is 24. She is an assistant manager of a movie theatre. She has dark brown hair and eyes. She is average height and weight. Both of her parents are from Cancun, Mexico. Her mom came to Tennessee on a school and work visa. Her dad didn't have any credentials. Katie was born in Nashville, TN so this made her American. When Katie was 19 her parents got deported back to Mexico. Rose always thought of Katie as a daughter. So, naturally Katie came to live with Rose. This meant that three people were living in Rose's house. There was Rose, Katie, and now Shae. Gina is the oldest being 28. She's a science college teacher. She is overweight but no overly obese. She isn't very tall being 5.4. She has red hair and green eyes. She was married but just got divorced a couple of weeks ago. Her husband was a bastard, a dirty rotten scoundrel who is now in prison for fraud and embezzlement. (That is a long story that will be explained later) She has two kids; Jonah and Eve. Tye is European. He's tanned because his father is half Italian. He's 5.9 and has royal blue eyes. His eyes are easy to get lost in. He's 26, single, and works for a bank in the finance department. He thinks he has a son out there somewhere. Unfortunately there's no proof of this and the boy along with the mother has disappeared. Finally there is Shae's brother, Mac. He's 22 and has had as many jobs as girlfriends lately. He and Tara lived together till the baby died. The baby's death affected their relationship greatly. After their son's death Tara moved back in with her parents. Mac moved in with Tye. Tara and Mac are still friends. Everyone thinks that they are still friends with benefits but stay out of their business.

Jealousy issues

I think it is so sad when people get jealous over the stupidest things. Take affairs for instance; this is what I have to say. If your husband or wife is going to have an affair there is nothing you could do about it. You can't prevent it so stop stressing over it. Not to mention that stressing about it doesn't get anyone anywhere. Nagging about it isn't going to change the situation either. Seriously why in the world is it necessary to treat someone like they are dirt? It's not right to think that everyone is out to get your spouse. I mean that has to be the stupidest thing ever!!!! I don't think that just because someone works with all men or all women means something’s going to happen. If someone really wanted your spouse they would have done it already. If nothing like that has happened it doesn't mean that it will. Of course it may not mean that it won't. I think being that jealous is down right ridiculous and petty. Someone that is like that sure has really low self-esteem. Here are a few facts and tips for you.
Fact # 1: A marriage is built on trust. Without it there is no marriage. I know I could not stay in a marriage with someone who didn't trust me. I also couldn't stay in a marriage where I didn't trust my husband either.
Fact # 2: Communication is the key in all marriages. If you can't talk to your spouse without criticism your spouse should leave you. I would!!!!
Fact # 3: Always tell your spouse that you love them everyday. Kiss them before they leave the house everyday. Hug them at least once everyday. Why? Life is short and you don't know what could happen.
Fact # 4: Plan a date night. This doesn't mean you have to go anywhere. Although sometimes, going out is not a bad idea. Take one night, spend it together just with each other, and no one else.
Fact # 5: Have sex more than once a month. This helps your love life. It should not be a chore. I should be something you look forward to. Guess what? It also relieves stress and burns 60 calories. I'm not kidding about the calories.
Fact # 6: If your spouse is spending a lot of time with some one of the opposite sex they probably are having an affair. Now this has to be outside of work or group activities. The two need to be alone together a lot. If you’re a girl who has guy friends you should never spend more time with them than your spouse or boyfriend. This also goes for guys too. It sends a wrong message to the party you are spending a lot of time with. Not to mention it's just wrong especially if you’re married. If you’re going to spend time with a friend of the opposite sex keep it to a minimum. If you’re married it's not a good idea to do it at all. Find group activities to do with this person instead. That's better in a married relationship. It prevents things from going to far even if you don't mean for them to.
Fact # 7: Respect one another. Okay if I have to explain this one then you need some serious help. Duh, don't talk to your spouse like a dog, don't accuse them of doing everything wrong, and the list can go on. Your spouse is a human being. Be considerate.
Fact # 8: Being obsessive will drive your spouse away. I don't think I would stay in a marriage where someone called, texted, or e-mailed me constantly about being with someone else. I know I can't handle someone who couldn't make up their mind what they wanted from me. I definitely cannot handle someone accusing me the same thing everyday. I would go completely and utterly insane.
Fiction # 1: Friendship is not anything more than what Webster's dictionary says it is. Saying that a friendship consists of intimacy and sex is hogwash. That is not a friendship. Yeah, I know about the friends with benefits thing but that in itself is more than a friendship too. Hate to break it to the people who have the friends with benefits but its true. Sorry friends with benefits but your in a relationship. It may not be a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship however it's still more than just friends. Once you’re sexually intimate with each other you have created a relationship beyond friendship no matter what the understanding is.
Fiction # 2: If your husband is shy and quiet doesn't mean he's up to no good. This is true even if your husband prefers to be by himself a lot. For my husband I know that this is especially true. He had a horrible step-father who made it a mission to close my husband off to anyone and everyone. For him I know it's a life he has a hard time forgetting. Shoot, I encourage my husband to go out with his friends. There have been several times I had to talk him into it because he couldn't make up his mind. I just finally told him "You go and have a good time." I like him better now that he has buddies to hand out with. He seems happier. I say that because he's less grumpy.
Fiction # 3: Just because your spouse likes freaky stuff in the bedroom doesn't make them sick, twisted, or mean that they are having an affair. Some people like to do different things within their sex life. Some like to be spanked. There are those that like to be domineering. Either way you like it, it's good to have variety. It spices up the bedroom. Having sex the same way every time gets old after a while.
Fiction # 4: Therapy doesn't help. Yes it does. If you don't have insurance to pay for it, read Men Are From Mars And Women Are From Venus. I've read this book and it gives great and true things about the opposite sex. There are many other books about love and marriage out there. I challenge a spouse to take the love dare. If you don't know what that is watch the movie "Fireproof". It's a good movie. If you want a marriage to last you have to do something to keep it flowing smoothly.
Fiction # 5: Having faith is crap. That is complete bologna!!!! It doesn't necessarily need to be God. Just having some kind of spiritual something to share together is important. Here you will have something in common and you spend quality time together. My husband and I are Christians. I know that this has strengthened our marriage greatly. So, whatever you believe in share it together. That is the most important part.
Fiction # 6: Having children ruins the sex life. You know what? You do that all by yourself. It has nothing to do with having kids. You make the choice to have sex with your spouse or not. Think about it. You two have your own room separate from the kids. You can lock your door. You can have sex when they're in their beds asleep. There aren't very many excuses here. Even better still is when the kids are at grandma's or wherever. Heck, this is the best time to have all the sex you can. If you find excuses not to have sex with your spouse all the time there's a problem. Always, always, always make time for sex and intimacy. It is vital in all serious relationships.
Okay so I could probably say more but my co-worker says I shouldn't make this a novel. I guess I'll stop here. Besides I can't think of anything else anyway.
I want to add one last thing. Just love your spouse. Say it and show it as often as possible. There is nothing more important than that. If you can't do that then you don't need to be married at all.

Entertainment Values

Okay so I was told that I'm quite entertaining. In fact a co-worker of mine said I am good for a life at least once if not three times a day. I don't know about that. I don't think of me as a funny person. I do think I'm indecisive. I get that from my mother. I know I'm wishy washy a lot (get that from mom too). I have a hard time letting stuff go. Like today for instance, no kidding. There was this crossword puzzle my coworker and I were working on. There were three sections that plagued me. I didn't want to give up till I found out what the heck it was. Finally after about several hours of mulling over it I searched the Internet for the answer. Walla, I found it. Now I have to admit I do cheat a lot on the crossword puzzles. I try not to but can't help it when there's something I can look up the answer to.
So, there's another thing about me. What? Well, getting off track about what I was talking about originally. I do that all the time. This drives my husband insane. I guess I don't blame him really. I ramble a lot too. Like right now for instance. Seriously there is absolutely no reason for writing any of this.
So, I guess I should tell the story about how I entertained my co-worker that said I was a riot all the time. Well, apparently he thought it was funny that I circled the parking lot twice. It wasn't my intension to look insane. I was just looking to see if any parking spaces were available facing the street is all. He didn't say what else made him laugh about whatever it is I do that's entertaining.
I know for my co-worker who I sit next to it's the conversations I have with my mother. Shoot, I swear. It's like she calls and says one thing. Two or more hours later it winds up being a whole different something else of the same subject she was talking about before. A lot of the times this is quite frustrating. Don't get me wrong. I love my mother very much. I do. She doesn't think I do. But, I really do. It would be nice if she called for once and made some kind of sense out of a plan she concocted. My husband calls them hair-brained ideas. I want to point out that he loves her too.
There are also incidences where I'm in what my co-workers call a zone. What do I mean by that? Well, say I'm typing something. I've been accused of not paying any attention to what someone is saying. For the most part this might be true. Sometimes I do try to pay attention to what's going on around me. Sometimes when I'm in my zone it’s kind of nice. This is because I don't have to listen to some of the background stuff going on around me. I can't elaborate because I don't think I can talk about that.
There are some funny things that happen around me. I can't talk about them either although I wish I could. These things don't involve personal stuff. That's all I can say.
Personally I think my daughter is much more entertaining than I am. She's four. Boy at this age they say the most interesting things. When she says big sentences I can't help but laugh because it is so cute. There was this one time in the car she was asking me about animals that lay eggs. She named a bunch of animals that lay eggs that were right. Then, she said that cows lay eggs. I had to correct her on that one. The cutest thing she says is "I don't want to. I'm tired of it." She doesn't say it a lot but to me it's funny. I especially like it when she says something goofy she'll laugh at herself then correct herself.
Now I do make it my mission to make my husband laugh everyday. This is because he seems so unhappy sometimes. I'll make a goofy face or say something that doesn't make any sense. What? Well, there's just too many to list. Some of them I shouldn't say because they are not rated G.
I guess I can say what's funny is I've made up my own cuss words. Fudge bucket and sugar beans are two of the ones I use most often. I have wacky sayings sometimes. I say "Burns my cookies and bakes my marshmallows." I say that when I'm about to talk about something that made me mad. There's one I say all the time now. "I swear on everyone's business." This one I use when I'm frustrated about a conversation me and my mother just had. Sometimes if I'm real frustrated I say, "I swear on everyone's business that is alive and living." Yeah, I don't know where I got any of those. I just say them for some reason.
I don't know maybe I am entertaining. I guess I can be giving what's going on at the time. It's hard to poke fun at something if it's not a funny matter to start with. Oh, well, maybe this wasn't boring. I hope it was entertaining.

Bored, bored, totally bored and lazy!

I hate boring moments. I have shows that I watch but even they have gotten boring. Sometimes I feel like my whole life is boring. Then sometimes strange crap comes up. Usually it is some sort of family crap or drama. I keep meaning to do something with my house. It looks like crap. I mean it seriously. It looks like complete and utter crap. I keep swearing that I'm going to get a garbage bag and throw everything in it. I'm completely lazy. No kidding. See, I'm so lazy that it took me about a week and half to get my Christmas crap up. Then it took me two weeks after Christmas to finally be able to take it all down. It takes me ages to finally clean the whole house. I don't know what's wrong with me. You would think I would get tired of all the mess. I still do nothing about it. You would think that all the boredom that I suffer from would kick cleaning into high gear. Yeah right, nope. It's sad. All my Christmas crap is in its boxes but hasn't found its way to the basement yet. I'm so not going to do that by myself. It wasn't fun bringing all that crap up to the house by myself. Some of it is extremely heavy. Know what's sad. Even this post is stupid and boring. Shoot if I were just some ordinary person I wouldn't read it. I'm just incredibly bored.
