Last night the soldier was cruising YouTube the way he likes and the conversation reminded me of this hotel I lived in shortly after I got myself un-homeless and about a year or so before I met him. The hotel is a landmark in the city where we met, I’d never mentioned it so I brought it up.
I didn’t get two sentences out before he interrupted me. I think it’s rude considering I have Libra, however I do like to study him so I let it go.
I let it go until he got off YouTube and started to talk about his life. I sat listening to him tell me various stories for about an hour and a half at which point I decided (Libra) that was enough and I ought to interrupt him (Mars Mercury conjunct).
“Stop,” I said. “Do you realize I was going to tell you a story about that hotel and you interrupted me?”
“Yeah,” he said.
“Well how come? How come I can’t say two sentences but you can go on for an hour and a half?”
“I didn’t want to hear that story,” he said. “But let me tell you why I didn’t want to hear it…”
He went on to tell me how my stories upset him enormously.
“I have to be able to pace after I hear about your life. I just just got to be able to get out and walk around so I can deal with it.”
I was shocked. Remember when he read my book? Some of you do and last night he told me disrupted his sleep for months.
“Months? You didn’t tell me that. You said it bothered you some.”
“P, I didn’t sleep good for six months over that thing.”
“Oh, okay. I didn’t know that. So that’s why you interrupted me. I thought I was just boring or that you could care less about me and just wanted to talk about yourself. But sure, I understand this…”
So first a stellium in Scorpio goes down and now a career Special Forces soldier. This is mind-boggling to me. I think I am normal and finding out otherwise is just… well it’s disturbing for sure but it is also disorienting. Where the hell are the lines anyway (Saturn Neptune)
And for all you people told me I was overreacting and my book wouldn’t bother him? This is your update on that. ::shakes head:: I knew he was going to flip his lid but what a container, eh? He’s not said a thing for 6 months or more.
Are you a good container?
