Peanut Butter

Many years ago, the BFF and I were discussing what it was I was looking for in a future spouse. Since she’s basically a dude, we sometime have trouble communicating/understanding each other when it comes to relationships.

When I couldn’t communicate to her my need to feel comforted without being judged, in my frustration I exclaim, “I just want to eat peanut butter out of the jar when I come home and have him not judge me!” It was a light bulb moment for her and since then as mocked me mercilessly for it. 

So today, after a long couple of weeks, emotionally and energy drained, I found myself at my desk, eating peanut butter out of the jar.  I texted her my current state (of eating peanut butter out of a jar). Her response:  I’d rather u do that than throw yourself at a slob.

She says it like I have a pattern or something. Maybe I do, maybe I don’t.  That’s between me and the jar of peanut butter.
