The Beer Belly guy took Amanda to the Thron Legacy 3D and they both liked it. So the next date is walking along the river in two weeks (TBB goes to some business trip). I always admired people who have so much patience when exploring the other human being. How can you wait one month before having the first kiss? Or two weeks before looking in the eyes of somebody you are agonising to know better? It is not only about sex. I want to research. I want to run through the minefield. I want to smother the Olympic fire. I want to reach the end of the desert. That is why I am so bored, because I am too impatient.
At that moment an sms from Andre arrives. He suggests theatre on Saturday. Cool! I always wanted to have someone with whom I can go to the theatre, to Opera, to dinner parties and royal receptions. This is the world where I should belong.
Are you seeing someone? Amanda asks.
Yes, I am. I say. Actually I am in love.
Why did I say that?
Billy is my boss. He is the editor in chief of our corporate newspaper. His wife’s name is Margareth and she also works in our enterprise. She is psychologist. She drinks a lot and I like her. I heard that she married Billy because at the time Billy was important and she wanted to make a career. Now she has everything and she is walking around in a purple coat and red shoes. She should be younger than Billy, but she is not, I looked in her personal file once with my friend from HR. I like her because she clearly is not a woman. She is a witch.
Billy recruited me when I was intern in our company. I was photography assistant, needless to say I don’t know a thing about photography. I don’t have a facebook page, I don’t flickr, I don’t tweet (well, now I do). I never take pictures and I detest diaries. I hate to look back. All I care is to meet strangers – every day. I am a novelty whore. Strangers are mysterious and unveiled, they bubble on the surface and fly high like magic katamarans. Then they suddenly go out and I am alone again.
