Ouch 2

Well it’s a big day tomorrow, and it’s necessitated the first shirt-ironing of the New Year as I have a meeting with a potential client to go to. It’s between me and one other guy and if I’m successful it’ll mean three days work each week for the next three months. Not at a particularly good rate, but to be honest I wanted to get the first one under my belt, and the last thing I was going to do was price myself out of it. I’ve also decided to get my new Hugo Boss suit out of the wardrobe… the last time I wore it was at the fateful wedding when I fell asleep and woke up when everyone else had left. So… wish me luck because I will be one very unhappy Blogger if I don’t get it.

I’m just about recovered from this morning’s trip to the dentist, too. Some time ago I badly cracked one of my back teeth eating some kind of nut or other that had the density of rock. Or something much, much denser than rock. Anyway, today (after much wringing of the nurses hand) the root was whipped out. I was in fucking agony but managed to get some mega painkillers from the local pharmacy this afternoon, so hopefully I’ll get a decent night’s sleep tonight and look nice and chirpy for tomorrow. (Okay, unlikely.)

I haven’t called or emailed C just yet. I keep getting strange texts that, whilst not being quite monosyllabic, are not dissimilar to the “Hello” of yesterday. I’m beginning to seriously believe that I’m a nut-job magnet.

zoozan said...

your reading C wrong. I'm telling you she's interested in you and she's completely unsure how you feel about her. So she's waiting for you to make the next move. The question is - do you want to?

Serial said...

GREAT choice of tune.

unforgiving bitch said...

I agree with Zooz....she's definitely interested in you and she's no nutjob...at least I hope not. I've been wrong before, but I don't believe Zooz has.

wdky said...

LL, nuts are where it's at. And thanks - I hope to god you're right or I'll be walking the streets of Kings Cross looking for another kind of business.

Em... ouch is right. The suit's bloody gorgeous though :-)

LB - sorry. Thanks though, and I knew what you meant all along.

J, but why me? WHY ME?

Ruthie, you've filled me with confidence :-)

Zooz - you're such a smarty pants.

Serial - sorry mate, really!

UB - my comment about Zooz refers :-) Nice to see you after all this time x

Caterpillar said...

Good luck, darlin'!!! And feel free to post a photo of yourself in the suit!

FireCracker said...

Ouch is right! At least you got some good drugs to numb the pain. Now if only you could get something to get rid of all those nuts.

Good luck with the job but don't sell yourself short - I'm sure you're worth every penny. :-)

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Seriously, GNR? I'm quite pleased.

Good luck tomorrow.

wdky said...

Hammy, thanks. I already feel like I've had a rather large spliff though...

EJ - thanks too mate :-)

NWC - god, when are you back? Hope you're having a wonderful time x

Kimmy... thanks for the pat. At least it wasn't a pinch.

Cat, thank you and I may!

FC - the nuts are everywhere. And you're right at least to... well you're right.

BEG - hi! Yes I love this one. And thank you.

New York Moments said...

You're a nutjob magnet too? Maybe we should start a club...

J's Gf said...

Yes, let's start a club! I want to become a psychologist and it would provide me with an excellent customer base should I ever starte a private practise.

And of course, good luck with the job!
