I want a pretty lady to take out for dessert. Usually when I go out for dinner, I end up being way too full to even consider looking at the dessert menu.. but I think it would be nice to go out for dessert one evening. Get some desserts to share and then go home for some baileys and hot chocolate. We could make a blanket fort, watch our favourite Harry Potter movies and exchange warm kisses and cuddles. Sound good?

Post-call and post-CTU rotation, I drove home in a different state of mind. It is now the end of my first rotation. So much is changing, and so much has changed.

I’d love to see the reactions to this from a crowd. I can kind of imagine a quiet, solemn understanding from the ladies and a lot of confused questions from the guys… If my memory of art school serves me.
In 9th grade English we read Laurie Halse Anderson’s “Speak”. For those of you who haven’t read it, the author makes it abundantly clear that the teenage protagonist, Melinda, was raped, before the protagonist actually says it.
Our English teacher asked the boys in the class what happened to Mel. They came up with the most ridiculous answers. Every girl in the class just knew.
This just goes to show…
Not all men menace women, but yes all women have felt menaced by a man.
Every girl understands this because every girl knows the fear implicit in this image.
