As my old brain continued to out-feel my new brain, I was falling more and more in love. I know my dating life sounds weird and my marriage was even weirder. But let’s face it. Nearly all of us were “out of it” in our own surreal worlds in one way or another. ” Like everyone else, I had loads of hormones and tons of fractures. It was so much easier to let Jim fill them in than for me to heal them myself (plus, it never occurred to me that I could). For example, each time Jim was assertive, spoke his mind, put his needs first, became impatient, or stood up for himself, my surreal, old brain love would grow even deeper.
Jim’s needs were top priority! For me to act any other way might mean Jim wouldn’t love me anymore, definitely a warning sign of fully blossoming Surreal Love. Once again, this was all my own doing. When he wrote that “I love you” message on the paper towel in the movie theater, I was ready to bolt. I had become very comfortable with having the Surreal image of not needing anyone, not loving anyone, and not having anyone interfere with my career plans—ever. Jim was truly amazing about the whole thing.
Ken finally did notice me, however. But only because “Barbie” accidentally dropped her fondue fork and speared my foot. Ken and everyone else had a good laugh. Of course, Ken’s laugh was the most adorable laugh I had ever heard. Did I mention he was gorgeous? Larry King Live Theory This could also be called the Donald Trump theory, but the thought of naming one more thing after him makes me gag. Trump Tower—really! T. Diner & Lodging. Anyway, I will stick with Larry King because I usually like his show.
