Kris- I found you out.
Gracie- What do you mean?
Kris- Nice try. I have seen what you do when I’m not looking.
Gracie- Oh, ummmm, yea. That.
Gracie- Oh, You can’t tell me that you don’t do stuff behind my back!?!?
Kris- Hahaha, yea, right!! Like what? I am a good girl.
Gracie- Yea, right!! Now who is hiding?
Kris- Hmmmm, I honestly can’t think of anything outrageous I’ve done.
Gracie- Oh, I’m sure you can. Think about it. Who flew to Scotland ? Who stayed in that hotel with…
Kris- Hey, stop it right there… I know where you’re going with that…
Gracie- What are you afraid of? What you did was totally natural. I mean you actually….
Gracie- Date is not a bad word.
Kris- Ohhhh, that is what you were going to say.
Gracie- Ummm yea, What did you think?
Kris- Nothing. Nevermind.
Gracie- Well, whatever. What happened to you the last few months? Why did you stop dating?
Kris- I don’t know. That is a good question.
Gracie- Well, you need to get back to it.
Kris- Yea. I know. I really want to.
Gracie- Well, what is stopping you?
Kris- I don’t know. Maybe I’m afraid.
Gracie- Afraid of what? Rejection?
Kris- Well, yea a bit.
Gracie- Well you better get over that really fast. Rejection is a part of life.
Kris- Oh yea, I am already painfully aware of that.
Gracie- Well, you can’t let things get in your way, no matter what they are. There will always be obstacles, hurdles to overcome. You just have to keep trudging along.
Kris- Oh yea, I know. I have always felt that life is too short. We have to live in the moment. From my life experiences, especially working in the ER, I know that life can change in the blink of an eye.
Gracie- Yea of course. Are you really satisfied with your life right now, if something were to happen?
Kris- That is a very good question. There are some things I am satisfied with. But I feel there is so much more out there. So much more life to live.
Gracie- So why aren’t you living it?
Kris- I’m trying. I’m working on it. I want to be happy. Sometimes I don’t know what that feels like. It’s been a long time since I think I’ve truely felt happy. I want to enjoy life and have fun. I haven’t done that in a long time.
Gracie- Well I think you know what you need to do. Maybe learning to pole dance like I did will help? It was quite a thrill. Don’t know if I’m gonna do it often, but It felt good and free.
Kris- Hmmmmm yea I totally would, it’s just finding the money to do it.
Gracie- Oh, you’ll figure it out. Maybe you can advertise, “Will trade Art for pole dancing lessons?” You’ve gotten pretty good at bartering.
Kris- Hahaha, yea, we’ll see. Actually, have thought of learning belly dancing too. So there is Yoga, Pole dancing and Belly dancing. Hmmmm.
Gracie- Ohhhh gooo for it. Trust me, those are all such fulfilling, sexy activities. You will love it. But you have to promise to check into it. You totally flaked on going to the yoga loft the other day.
Kris- Yea, I know. I did. But have you checked into teaching?
Gracie- Yes, actually I did and I am working on it.
Kris- Ok then.
Gracie- Ok then.
