Row, Row, Row That Boat Gently Off My Land

April 27, 2017

I have a coworker, “Linda,” with whom I’ve socialized outside of work many times. Her husband and the man I’m dating get along well, and we’ve always enjoyed our get-togethers, although both of us have noticed a tendency to under-contribute on their part.

Reading the stories about people touching pregnant bellies reminds me of some unwanted touching that is rather common for me to experience.

Movie Your Butt To A Different Seat

April 17, 2017
