One way to handle today’s sky is just to cop…. to your jealous (Venus Pluto) feelings, that is. I can tell you firsthand it’s enormously liberating when this stuff (that acts like the Hydra), gets air. The soldier availed himself of this recently:
“I used to hate it when he called you, Bean,” he said. He was talking about the AMF. I used to write about him on my other blog which the soldier read silently for three years.
“Why did it bother you?” I asked. I was pretty sure I knew but asked to make sure.
“Oh, I hated it when he said that. I just didn’t like it is all. Made me punch things a few times.”
I laughed. “But why? What is wrong with, Bean?”
“I just don’t want anyone calling you a pet name except for me. I don’t care if it was a different time, I still hate it. I hate the sound of it, of that word and now I have a cup of coffee and it has that word right on it. My coffee cup says bean on it and if I’d have known it was going to be there, I’d have gone without coffee.”
I snorted. “Uh oh.”
“Yeah, I hate that. Bean. Bean. I’m just jealous, that’s all. And I’ll tell you this: If anyone ever comes up to me and asks me how’ Bean is doing, I am going to punch them right in the mouth. There! That’s how Bean is doing. Now so you want to ask me that again, or are you good?”
We laughed and I bet he feels better about the whole ordeal. 😉
Do you think copping to jealous feelings can alleviate them?
