An on and off life…
I went on a date last week. I’ll wait while you pick up your jaw from the floor. Better? OK. Moving on. So, I went on a date last week. We met on Tinder and he asked me out right away. So we met for dinner and drinks at a bar down the block from me.
And, in the course of conversation, I managed to say…
“I’ve been at my job on and off for ten years.”
“I was in Thailand on and off for maybe three or four months.”
“I don’t have Netflix right now. I get it every few months but then cancel it for a few months.”
It was at this point that my date laughed and said, “you really are just on and off with everything in your life, aren’t you?”
I kind of stared for a moment and let the words process.
I don’t think anyone has ever so succinctly described the way I live before.

Accurate I suppose, but if it works for you, if it works for now, why not?
Also I love that this was the whole post. Hilarious in its brevity. (Um, did I just use the word brevity?)

It does work for me! 🙂 Also, I literally sat down to write a 3,000 word post and then was like, eh, that’s enough.

So no second date? 😉
