The day-to-day life and musings of a African-Caribbean man with Asperger's Syndrome. Stay tuned...
The week began with me waking up early but still having to take a taxi (I have no idea where the time went). It was a brand new day for the office to commence with the new process that management want us to follow. I currently sit with the young girl from my previous team and another younger guy on a bank of desks by ourselves, save for one of the supervisors who sits next to me at the end of the desks (at a 90 degree angle from me).
I went to the gym afterwards and saw that colleague of mine again, making sure to visibly acknowledge her. At one point she was using the seated dips machine (that I wanted to use) so I waited patiently for her to finish. I may have made her uneasy but I’m not sure, this same girl apparently thought I ignored her in the gym on Friday because she was sweating so anything is possible!
This morning I actually took the bus from my flat to the town centre, at work the girl I sit next to had today as holiday so it was very quiet. One thing that stands out from yesterday is that she alluded to the fact that she had recently been involved with a younger man (which has been widely speculated to be the same guy who I used to go to lunch with) despite her preference being older men. Interesting.
The evening has been quiet so I’ll jump straight into my thought of the evening. My attractive friend seems very much to be in a relationship with a woman, a butch dyke who I had met with her out one night (remember when I met her then-boyfriend a while back?) and who I thought was a skinny effeminate guy at the time. I recall being prodded in the chest by the drunken girl and resisting the urge to acquaint her (who looked like a him) with the concrete floor. Now I may be seen as homophobic with these comments but I don’t care, I just find it hilarious that she may indeed have gone from loving men to women instead out of the blue. Keep it in mind that I’m merely speculating, it’s apparent that they share a bed at least and that they are extremely close so some boxes are being ticked here. I thought I would be jealous but surprisingly I don’t care, I’m just disappointed that this is another in a long line of impulsive decisions that she’s made. If it was my ex who had done this then I’d be wounded but in this case I don’t give a damn. We’ll see how long it lasts and one more thing, she posted a angry FB status on the weekend talking about people judging her. Could this be the reason? And she’s white by the way, the vast majority of the people in my town and county are (along with my ex) so it’s not a “typical black woman” issue. What is up with women these days?
