Day 5: “I am the Scorpion!”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 28, 2011 by Veronica Graham

Today a friend at work gave me a ring with a scorpion on it.  It’s one of those cool, silver, spinning rings, but it had two cut out scorpions on it.  I also have a belt with a real life scorpion infused in the buckle like the mosquito in Jurassic Park that the old guy had on his walking stick.

I am a true Scorpio.  Emotional, Passionate, Reckless, Can sting you with our poisionous tails (no pun intended), and although this isn’t an official characteristic:  tend to be addicted to sex.

I embrace my Scorpio personality, I mean, I can’t help it- I just happened to be born within that zodiac time period.  I’m not gonna get out of hand here, I love Jesus (even though I always change the station away from Christian radio- what’s with Jesus music sucking so bad???!!), but I find my Scorpio personality as both a blessing and a curse.  I nail job interviews, I’m always the life of the party, and can attract pretty much any guy I have my eye on.  The reckless side of the Scorpio persona tends to make me forget about the angel on my shoulder, saying, No! to that one night stand.  Where most people have that twinge of guilt and voice in their heads- mine is silent.  Silent like crickets on a beautiful summer night… you know, the kind of night you have sex to… I miss it so much, but Day 5 is an empowered day for me!  This is the day the harsh-tongued, bad ass Scorpio ruled.

I went to a friend’s house where my most recent ex, Latino-Hot-Lips, was hanging out.  Who am I kidding?  I knew he was there.  He asked me to go on a walk on this beautiful night.  I said yes! (shocker, huh?)  All of three of us (my friend, Latino-Hot-Lips, and myself) went on the walk.  After we returned, I left and went home.  LHL called me to keep hanging out and this was a time for me to make this one a clean break.  An honest break.

I drove and picked up LHL. I told him I lied when I said I was in love with him and I never intended on moving in with him.  I blurted out, “Look, when I said I loved you, I didn’t mean it!”  Total asshole moment for me, but at least it was honest for once and it was what I owed him.  He did what I expected and walked home, so pissed that he wouldn’t even accept a ride back.  I was left alone, with the crickets, to wallow in this feeling of being a total bitch.  I’m not used to this, since I usually push guys away to the point where they’re the asshole.

I’m happy for myself that I didn’t sleep with him, because the night was gorgeous and so was he!  He even touched my leg once that made me think, What vow?  If he wasn’t the gentleman he was and kissed me, all I would have heard in my head were crickets.   My Scorpio tongue saved me and at least I could go home with my virtue.

I hope this is a start of a more honest Veronica Graham, speaking the truth even if it’s not what the other person wants to hear, something I’ve wished for from other guys I’ve been with… I can lie my way into a bedroom, but somewhere once I heard that honesty is the key to a healthy relationship… In the Bible, in the New Testament I’m sure… I am planning on going to church again, by the way.

Here’s to 361 Days- Veronica Graham, the scorpion bitch-  Sigh, I am a bitch…
