Some years back, I was writing on a message board about Gemnis lying. I called them Gemiliars and people got all pissed - justifiably, I thought. So I wrote this about the opposite sign: Sagittarius, which is known for being blunt and honest.
I was dating this guy once, a Sadge rising. I’d met him in a restaurant for a big date. This was a BIG DATE, because he planned to propose to me after dinner. He had a ring in his pocket and here’s what happened instead.
We were sitting in a booth, when he spied someone he knew at a table behind me. The woman was a local celebrity. She was pretty much a household name in the area, at a level akin to a local newsperson.
He nodded in her direction. "Look. XXXXXX is over there. Do you know her? Do you know who she is?”
I glanced over my shoulder. “I’ve heard of her.”
“We had sex once."
"We had sex once."
"Why are you telling me this?"
"It was at a party."
“So? Why are you telling me this? I don't want to hear about it."
My cheeks started to heat up. I gulped, and hoped he'd stop.
"It wasn’t that big a deal," he said.
"I don't want to hear about it,” I said. Shut the fuck up, I thought. I was getting visuals.
"Sheesh, Elsa. It was only one time. It was no big deal. She’s actually a lesbian, er... mostly."
"I really don't want to hear about this."
"I can't believe this bothers you. It's no big deal. She was pretty drunk. I was drunk too."
“Well, I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT.”
“Are you fucking kidding me?”
“Elsa. It was nothing. Really.”
Well, I could see he was not going to let it go. Fucker. I felt all hot. I felt like I was going to cry, so I decided to bolt. I grabbed my purse and coat, stood up, leaving him with the salad on the table. I headed to the door, with my chin up in Leo Venus style.
