Mixed Marriage is....

Recommended Posts

R66forM

Like being a diabetic worker in a chocolate factory.

 

Or like being an alcoholic bartender?

 

(Not the best analogy maybe, but similar emotions) Like a cat lover who is hyper-allergic to felines?

 

I need to laugh at myself a little today...what else y'all got?

Or more aptly in my mind:

 

A runner with a torn hamstring....

 

A swimmer without access to a pool.....

R66forM - You are not to blame and do not have a disease.  Just saying...

I know, I know (all poor physical analogies i guess)...and nothing major happening here...just a little delayed on an anticipated piece of cake, compromise is a bumpy road some weeks.   Decided its more fun to laugh about it than be distressed.

The ace spectrum has been like subatomic physics to me. Things exist because they don't exist.

My partner is still available for intimacy if I want it, but my interest in asking has been fading and sputtering.

 

Like having access to sweet n low (saccharin), no sugar.

 

A substitute with a bitter aftertaste... eventually I think "I'd rather just pass on that".

Being a coffee addict but all the coffee shops only sell tea?

Like playing poker for no money. Poker is a really boring game if there are no stakes. I can play for HOURS if there’s just a little bit of money involved (like $10-$20 per person).

Is there such a place?

 

I’m a recovering coffee addict who flipped to tea a few years ago. So many places with incredible coffee offerings, but ask for tea and you get a bag of Lipton.

There are plenty just south of you SCPDX. My all time favorite is Chado.  The selection is vast, the owner a doll and their tea times an assault on your senses.  The clotted cream and scones are out of this world. Since moving out of LA, I dream of Chado.  If ever in the area, I highly recommend it. 

 

WAIT!  Hold the phone - I’ll be up there today!  🎉. I foresee a side journey to one of their tea rooms.  It was a one shop show back in the day.  https://chadotearoom.com/tearoom-locations/chado-downtown/

I am so very there on my next LA trip. Thanks!

 

We currently order online from McNulty’s in NYC. Wife was there on a business trip and brought back teas of all kinds.

I'm partial to Rose Congou from Upton Tea Imports... Which I've ordered from for... Longer than I dated my spouse, wow, must be around sixteen years or more! Time sure flies. We had it at our wedding, and I like other flavored blacks, but it's still my favorite.

@SCPDX - We ended up at Chado today after all, and it was as good as I recall. My lover had a little scone with his cream 😳 and washed it down with a choice oolong.  Whatever floats his boat! Overall, it’s a must if you love tea.

 

@NickJ Next time you’re out here, Chado is worth a stop if you’re in any of the areas they have a shop.

Like having a conversation with someone whose first language isn't the same as yours. They know some of the words but not all of them.

 

Not a perfect analogy, though; people can learn words, they can't learn to be not asexual.

Mixed marriage is two deaf people conversing.

 

Ask me anything. I'll reply anything.

 

Much guessing, some knowing...

Is it not the opposite?

 

The internal fires are banked, the churn of desires are unexpressed, passion unvoiced, caresses restrained.
