Of course I’d been thinking about it for a long time. I wanted to think I wasn’t affected by peer pressure, but I knew that most of you were old hands at it. Maybe even laughed at me behind my BACK! Many have mentioned that their mothers approved and showed them how; and most said that they even did it EVERY DAY at university. So about a year ago I got what was necessary, but just couldn’t get my courage up. Finally last night everything seemed just right. The ANTICIPATION and getting ready and all were really nice. My partner was surprised and happy. But then … it just wasn’t what I’d come to expect. Not that pleasurable, kind of FLAT. I don’t know if I really enjoyed it or not. And this morning my partner didn’t say anything at all about it before leaving early! Maybe it’s just ME; or maybe I didn’t do it right. I don’t know; and don’t know what all the fuss is about. Yep, I made boxed macaroni and cheese for my five year old daughter and me for the first time last night!
