Living alone for the first time.

This is the first time I live alone and I'm living in a rather cheap apartment for a year, apparently under a buffarillo that paces back and forth early in the morning and late at night. Next time I get a place, I'm going to make sure I live under a buffarillo that only paces back and forth at mid day.

Don't anybody think the Stump can't learn from a buffarillo.

  • Do you at least have a Big Green Egg?  I’ve heard smoked buffarillo is good with some pimento cheese spread.

  • Humans are exceptionally resilient. You can and will adjust. 

    There are no doubt both pros and cons to the arrangement. Enjoy the best of it.
  • Alas my egg is in storage, not allowed to grill here by Ma law, even though I'm on a ground floor (by choice as my legs are shot top to bottom) and I have a  concrete patio right outside my sliders. It's a blanket law though, as there are balconies here above me made of wood.

    They don't distinguish. To be honest, I have a lot of adjustments to make. My fridge has seven condiments in it and some spring water, that's it. I've been eating out morning noon and night. Not sustainable in the long term, but it feels liberating for now. I was a passenger for far too long over the last 30 years. I'm looking forward to my next chapter, a year in this small apartment is nothing, compared to what comes next.

    F the apartment.  Go out and find a house with enough property (inside and out) in a location you will enjoy. You know how you enjoyed life when you had the independent windows of opportunity within the relationship.  Time to target that-

    I agree with lousubcap here.  Find a house out in the boonies with no internet.  :wink:

  • Oh I'll buy something after this lease is up. I sold my house in Newburyport Ma for three times what I paid for it 13 years ago (the third house that I owned), to bidding wars, escalation clause, crazy sauce. Right now, after the mad scramble to get 13 years of accumulated crap out of the old place, I'm content to sit on the money,  have fun for now and figure out what to buy, where to go, or wait for better interest rates .... etc 

    Right now I feel a freedom I haven't felt in a long time, to be my authentic self. My wife's father once told me they were very stoic people, like it was so something special. It should have been a warning. I am so tgd opposite of that ..

    @Ybabpmuts - Best wishes on your new journey.  It sounds like you have flexible planning in place for the future, always a nice situation.
    Curious about your myriad relatives and the new place, will they be staying with you when they visit?

  • Not likely, my brother log, aka mister mcforehead needs a specialty bed that can support his giant cranium, otherwise his head sinks and eventually he'll suffocate form mattress in the face. Then you need to get rid of the mattress because it smells like his dead face. I'll be honest we experimented once in grade school and when he frenched kissed, me his face smelled like death by mattress. I just didn't recognize it at the time. Believe me, I look back with great regret

    One luxury is that you can watch porn with the volume turned all the way up.

  • I don't think I can do that. I've watched porn for so long with the volume down by now that I've made up my own noises. I'd like to think my noises are best at this point

    On a very related note, this is quite funny. 

  • I've gotten better with my noises, my very first video I yelled out ..

    "Hey stop that, I poop from there"

    Then it went to ...

    "Is that an egg roll in your pants?

    You reach a point where you have to ask the pertinent questions 
  • Wait until you have newly weds living over you like I did once. I could have gone into their bedroom blindfolded and found the condoms.

    Newlyweds use condoms?
  • I would hate to know that newlyweds  were living above me and you can go into their bedroom blindfolded and find their condoms. Your sense of smell must be fantastic

    I will say that riding bare-back beats swimming with a rain coat any day but you have to time your exit!!!
    Be careful out there-

  • Well maybe it was “bedroom toys” but every time the moaning reached a certain pitch it was “thud, walk walk, squeaky dresser drawer, walk walk, roof thumping “. Maybe they were trying to wait before incurring a 18 year note?

    Are you messing with the time space continuum? I  hope it works and we can all go back to yesterday, better yet, I hope we go back to yesterday but remember what happened today, because I could go one more underwear wash that way and as a single stump, that means sumpin

    Paul, ol' buddy...I imagine that I know you and your background and your marital history much less about your offspring than ..most ANY other eggers  here!

    ...with those stated facts given...then you, Sir, are way ahead of most all of us!  I might have pulled a "Richard Cory" by now!

    Keep On Keeping On as you are a STRONG MAN!!!, Paul!!!

  • By the way, a little housekeeping on my first ever thread, if anybody comes across a bandaid on the floor, let me know. I Had one on my big toe for two days but this morning when I looked down all I saw was a pasty white toe. This is also a reminder to stop washing the pasta at that little tube at the far end of the foot baths, at least until the bandaid surfaces. See you all in the chapel

  • Ron, of all the people on here, you do indeed know me the best. Not only on the forum but through a lot of emails for probably 20+ years by now. I really appreciate your friendship. As far as my outlook, so far they've been able to replace every joint that's broken and say they can replace the next few that are on the the way. It could be far worse, it could be terminal. As far as the divorce, right now I really like being on my own in a big way. I can make my own decisions now. For instance today was going to be laundry day but it was buy new underwear day instead. 😬
  • I just heard that people used to communicate with radios made of ham. 
  • Just watch out for the honey traps sitting at the end of the bar, if you know what I mean.

    That’s a rabbit hole you probably don’t want to get into…
