When your day job is depressing, having valuable dream-time taken up by your work place doesn't help.

I’ve said it before. Having too much work to do is troublesome. It’s causing problems. I feel like I’ve been neglecting my friends. Since I got my new day job shortly after I started dating Marlo, it’s probably pretty easy for the other people in my life to think that I’m spending all my time with my new girlfriend at the expense of my other friendships. The truth is, the reason Marlo gets so much time with me is because she comes over and sits on the couch watching TV while I basically ignore her – plugging away at (what I like to call) my first job: drawing. This is not the optimum way to spend time with one’s sweetheart, and I feel bad about it.

It is amazing to think that at any time I can go up to Marlo and touch her hand or steal a kiss. I never want to take that for granted. I have always cared for Marlo, and with each passing day I love her more than ever before. Which is lots. At my day job, every day, I write a letter to her during my breaks. We talked for hours last night. Marlo makes my depressing day job sufferable, and every day that I know I’m going to see her later puts a spring in my step. The longest relationship I’ve had was 2 years. I hope Marlo stays with me until I die. And I hope we die at exactly the same time. But I hope it’s not tomorrow.

  1. I hope Marlo stays with me until I die.

    Whoa…is that a civil union proposal, or a threat that you’re going to cut her head off and keep it in metal cannister?

  2. That is the sweetest thing I have ever heard!
    Isn’t love grand?!
    Marlo is a lucky girl, but something tells me she already knows that!
    Congrats to both of you!

  3. Ok, so I read halfway through the second paragraph of this post when I was like, “It’s really sweet!” So I started reading out loud it to Brian, going right back to the beginning and thereby skipping the last two lines. When I got there I started laughing and also getting kinda creeped out. But it’s still cute.

  4. my how word gets around. jenny told me to have a read and so i here i am. stunned. *blinkety blink*

    my heart-cockles are well and truly toasty now ๐Ÿ˜‰ seriously, you two are lucky to have each other. but i think youse already know that ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Congratulations! Having the company of someone you love to look forward to makes all of life’s difficulties easier to face.

  6. You guys could try for a civil ‘ONION’. Horray for romantic love. Stupid platonic love! What has it ever done for me? Now cut it out. You’re going the break the ‘adorable-o-meter’. Besides ‘Snuggles the Bear’ has a mean streak. He might come after your asses.

  7. what an amazing thing to say. i am currently attempting a relaionship with my best friend…it is the best ever. you already love them and repect them. it is amazing to want someone with you all of the time…even if they are sitting there and ignoring you, you do it together. it is great. i mean that. i know how you feel. these warm fuzzies make us realize what was missing…..even when you swore nothing was missing. cheers to you. and marlo too. i want to meet you for reals someday even more now!!! love and respect.. soosie
