What Is the Dude Thinking?

Ok, so I'm going to tell it just like it is.

I met this guy, and we had lunch. He was a nice guy, older, polite. We had previously exchanged some messenging stuff and he asked me out on a date. So I went.

Well, somehow our lives are just millions of dollars different. I am the frugal female survivalist. Minimalist, a cook, author, writer, artist, wanderer.

He is rich, retired, rich, owning tons of stuff. Has an airplane, a big home, a motor home. Whatever. Now, normally it wouldn't have bothered me so much except I ended up hearing about all the mega bucks his daughter, his son, his family was making, etc. Money and software and whatever. O.K.

After awhile, we ended up walking around at a park. Why does the conversation keep reverting to material possessions? Currently, I am looking for a job. I'm a lowly cook at this point. I just hope to make a decent living. And after awhile it just began to eat on me, this conversation of wealth, until I couldn't take it any longer.

So, you blew it guy. Its not interesting to keep hearing about someones mega bucks when they're hunting an hourly wage. I don't care about your daughter's salary, blah blah blah.

Now, I've got a grip, have rested and relaxed and realize I am the wealthy one. I have such a great bunch of friends, family and health, and survival skills that will keep me knee deep in many adventures to come.

So, dude, I just gotta ask you, what were you thinking?


  1. LOL, ProudHillbilly, thanks for your comment! I think you are right.

  2. So sad that he only interested in stuff. It will not make him happy in the long run.
