Well now this is some new shit! Yesterday as I was going to meet one of my coworker friends…I bumped into Elijah in the hallway. By now I’m sure you figured out that we sometimes work together…though never directly and we are equals. Anyways…he had this huge smile on his face and then he Hi 5 me! At the time, I didn’t think much about it. I met my friend and then my work day continued on. A few hours later, it occurred to me that that fool shouldn’t have been smiling like that at me because we aren’t friends! Then like lightning striking your favorite cartoon character, I realized that Elijah got me good! Back in the Fall when we first started dating, I came up with the Hi 5 as a way of symbolizing a passionate kiss when we were in public places or professional environments! It was our form of foreplay! At first Elijah hated it. He’s bold that way to want to kiss and touch in professional environments but I wasn’t having it. Guess now the Hi 5 is his thing. Poor thing hasn’t heard my Kitty Kat purr since November and has now resorted to the Hi 5! FML! Elijah=1 and Kingston=0. Don’t worry though…I’m all caught up. Elijah, I’ve been so happy and in love that you like…don’t matter. As a matter of fact, you are a constant reminder that I made the right choice. I feel like I’m flying! My heart’s desire for the last 6 years has always been the Ex Factor. Elijah=-1 and the Ex Factor=100000000. I’m with a man that told me that he isn’t trying to tame me. A man who accepts me…flaws and all. So you sir need to let go. And please turn that Hi 5 around and smack your face….before I do! I broke things off with you long before the Ex Factor reentered my life. But he was always with us and you knew that. That’s why you spent 7 months trying to control me and it didn’t work. Yes 40 years old is the new 12 for guys. Thank you for that constant reminder Elijah! Now keep your fucking hands to yourself before you lose a finger!?? Yesterday, I told this incident to Willow, Grace, Harmony, and my male bestie. Harmony’s comment hit the nail on the dot: “That’s funny…and just a little crazy!” Yes, that’s how I would describe Elijah…only I never laughed at any of his jokes!✌?️ ~KJM on Flashback Friday saying my Hi 5ing days have long been over. On to bigger and better things like cuddling with the man I love!?
