Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Thinking About A Specific Lady Tonight

Posted 09-24-2022 at 10:34 PM by case44

Perhaps I don't know why, but every now and then, I meet people at church or some other place in the sphere of life and then I never see them again.

Such happens to be the case with one lady who I once knew about fifteen years ago at a nearby church in our community. Sometimes, we did social things, too. That's where we got to know one another. She is actually a year older than I, and also someone who knew an ex-classmate of mine. She even dated him for a time. What's more important was, as she got to know me, she was very forward with me. I mean, she was very flirty, and I had absolutely no idea what I had done to deserve it. Don't get me wrong, I was flattered as all get out. But I was just skeptical. She liked animals. She had a couple of dogs (big ones) and I really did not want dogs, and for a number of reasons. This was a lady who was all woman. Her body was full and slightly tanned. She was a successful businesswoman. And, man, she was not just sweet; she was downright vivacious! Her other features included brunette hair and a very lovely mouth. Also appeared to have great shoulders and beautiful freckles. My suspicion is, I think she wanted a relationship, and perhaps, that would have been fine. There was, as I later learned, one issue. I wanted a woman that still had her entire body, but I ended up befriending a woman who had gone through a case of breast cancer. No one would ever wish that for their lives. So this lady had to have both of her boobs removed due to cancer. That's right, sports fans. While I applaud the fact that she had to save her life, she was being honest with me about where she is at that time. The fact that she was a cancer survivor was not the reason I didn't want to start dating her (and I didn't say that to her; I had to just drift away from her at subsequent functions). Two things: Obviously, she doesn't have much cleavage anymore, and I am (admittedly) attracted to buxom ladies, which she previously was (big ones, more than likely, as she was a pretty full-bodied woman). Please excuse the frankness, y'all, but I'm just laying down some honesty and have to be descriptive. Number two, there would probably be the risk of something else happening to her, as she's had cancer. What if it were to flare up in that part of her body or some other place? I didn't hate her; it's just that she was going to get emotionally attached to me, and I needed to back away before things would get bigger. That, and I was uncomfortable with multiple big dogs.

Now, I'm a cancer survivor in my own right, though just a total thyroidectomy, but still a threat to my well-being. Thankfully, it's long since been taken care of and I've had no real new problems, but I've also taken preventive measures internally. I'm doing alright.

But as for the lady who I've allowed to go?

I don't know if she's still alive, but I found myself trying to look her up, and her business number still appears, so it's possible she's still around. She's even still (reportedly) in the same area she'd always been in and hadn't moved away. At least, that's what might be. Sexy lady? Sure, she was. Still would be today. Fun to be around. I just didn't have the confidence that she would be totally for me. Friends for life? Certainly.

Lots of people tend to bounce in and out of my thought life (in addition to my real life), and I'll never fully understand why. While that elusive lady remains just that: elusive, sometimes, you get a little tease in your gizzard when life brings the unexpected.

    Friends for life?

    Why not friend with benefits?

    ^^^ Well, that's what should have happened, Mo. I stopped going to her church a few years after the last time I saw her, but sometimes, people have things to occupy them. I'm not even sure if she's even still alive today. I had her phone number written down years ago, but it's probably stashed away under some junk in the drawers. Even if I found it and dialed it, there's no guarantee what I might get.

    Sorry if what I've written has confused anybody, and I didn't intend for that. Sometimes, pieces of one's past just enter the mind.

    I understand. What's good about this blog post is the straight up honesty. The fact is situations and conditions absolutely matter. The health issue is an example that matters.

    As the band Little Texas says... "What might have been". We all think about that. You can always meet new girls.

    Indeed, Mo. Something better can come along. I've chosen to stay single all these years for a lot of reasons. Ladies can be promising at times, but they can also be complex.

    Uh, then again, so can this writer....
