    Ah, the lessons we learn on the road to becoming who we are. Even when we’re pretty damn sure we already know who we are and have had enough lessons, thanks very much. If this asshole is lucky, he’ll look back on this time and feel shame. If not, well, he’s got a long life ahead and a line of people behind him who wish him all kinds of hell.

    I actually really like the idea that some 2300 people know what an asshole he is, even if we don’t know exactly who he is. I’d like to be a much more heroic character in someone else’s story, myself. At any rate, you are fascinating.

      Yes, I agree. Though I want to be really careful not to be bitter girl and simply trash men. I simply write my experience. If you want to read more about a hero, stop by my sister site https://rebelwithacausedotorg.wordpress.com/2015/06/18/volunteer-vietnam/ and read about Viet, who is a hero. Thanks.

    […] Frank and I met in a round-about way. When I knew I’d be traveling to Australia or New Zealand, I started checking out various locations in those countries for dog-sitting opportunities through two of the house-sitting websites I belong to (Trusted Housesitters and HouseCareers). I found one who was looking for someone with hospitality experience (that’s me!) as they own a short-term rental place. Unfortunately, they found someone before we had a chance to Skype. A few weeks-later, they E-mailed me letting me know that a friend of theirs was looking for a dog-sitter. We spoke via Skype and they were very flexible and, if the vote didn’t go for New Zealand, it was not a problem for them if I didn’t come as they had another option. Well, you voted for Auckland which, at only a three-hour drive from Taupo, gave me a chance to live with Frank for a week. He’s got to be easier to deal with than Friday was (see Sleeping with the Enemy). […]
