When we divorced, we promised that if there was someone who was serious enough to bring around our son that we would introduce this person to one another. Yes, I know that this may seem a little weird to some but in my defense, my son is still little. He was only a year and a half old when we separated. I really was nervous about having him around someone being that he was so little and couldn’t really vocalize if he was being hurt in any way.
Two weekends ago my son came home as usual, then ran to the window at our balcony and was yelling “daddy..jj..daddy..jj”. And I was like ‘oh helllllll no’ my baby has been around some woman enough to remember her name. My son is two and a half. Anyway later that day I messaged my ex and asked if there was someone that my son has been around lately named JJmand he said that this woman was a friend… but later said that she was a girlfriend and that she had met my son. I asked if I could meet her, just to see her face, to give her that “if you touch my baby there will be hell to pay look”. I wanted her to know that I was in the picture.
Last week I went for an interview (I looked great…hair curled, makeup done and most importantly there were no Cheetos hand prints on my shirt from a two year old) After the interview I went to pick up some money from my sons dad. We agreed to meet down the street and he let me know that he would be bringing his girlfriend so we could meet and in his words” get to know each other and say whats up”. -.- Ummmm how about no. I just needed her to see my face and for her to know I could go bat shit crazy on her if need be. Okay so I’m sitting there in the parking lot of a QuickTrip waiting on him. I was nervous. I wanted to drive away. I wasn’t ready for this yet but here I was. So they pull up, we stay in our cars and he gives me the money. “this is jj…” to which I reply a very generic nice to meet you. Her reply; (in a very annoying, overly excited, we’re going to be BFFs voice) oh hi… nice to meet you!! I wish we were out of the car so I could hug you… I’m a hugger!!! WHAT THE HELL!! I’m a puncher bioch so back the hell up. It must have been the look I gave her that made her sit back in her seat.
I mean who does that??? Really. I quickly said goodbye and drove away. I was annoyed. I didn’t know if she was just being a jerk or if she really is that dumb to think that I would greet her with open arms.
Awkward meetings – 1
On a more positive note, the interview went great!!
