After all, before the disease takes over and end badly this time, she was his immediate available chance for him to taste a bit of “life” – what’s it like to be in love, and to commit, and to have someone to laugh with and cry with, and some sort of “normality” in between medical checks, surgeries and sleepless nights. The rest of his time he was overworking himself in the family business (because his illness doesn’t exactly sell him well on the labor market and for a wage that can cover the medical care).
When I was a young teenager, a guy tried to molest me. It was on a bus. I was sitting by the window and he said by the aisle. He kept reaching for my privates. I kept fighting him away. It did not escalate beyond that. I eventually got to my stop and got off and watched over my shoulder to make sure he wasn’t following me. I don’t know really. I have been married for almost 12 years now, and I have not been happy with my husband for the couple of years. I have started flirtinh with other guys online, and have an online bf now. I intend to leave my marriage. There are just some things I have to do first. Even if it’s just online, I still consider this an affair.
Bezos is not involved in so many high-tech businesses. He runs Amazon and Blue Origin (the space launch company). Musk runs Tesla, SpaceX, The Boring Company, Neuralink and (in the past) OpenAI. He was also is the driving force behind a string of businesses that ended up as PayPal…which is as well known as Amazon. Bezos is relatively private – he doesn’t do many interviews, he doesn’t interact with us mere mortals over social media. Blue Origins doesn’t show the world everything it makes and publicize every launch. Musk gets interviewed at least a couple of times a month – he chats with people over Twitter – everything that happens with SpaceX, Tesla and TBC gets reported and commented on in every detail (although Neuralink is a bit quieter).
We also know that Elon not only runs and promotes these businesses – he also does a significant amount of actual engineering. When he’s at the Tesla factory, he actually likes to go down to the factory floor and works on assembling cars – because he enjoys that. So I don’t think Bezos is a better or worse human being than Musk – but he’s always just a shadowy figure in the background. Amazon is huge and in the foreground – but I bet that 95% of Americans couldn’t tell you who runs it. Blue Origin is virtually unknown in the minds of most people.
I requested to sit in the corner of the classroom and observe on the first day and was allowed to do so. I think there were about 6 other children in the class, but the thing that surprised me was one of them was about 8 years old, tall for his age, strong and non-verbal. His behavior required one-on-one attention and he would yell and flail his body around at times. One of the smaller children could easily be hurt. The teacher looked stressed out as she tried to spend time with the others, but it was a bit chaotic.
You couldn’t tell by looking at him that he has a medical condition – tall, young, handsome, funny, cheerful, a fighter, with values and hopes, a little timid, but educated and very handy. Lots of friends, but no girl could see a future with him (at least no other girl). She made herself be the only game in town for him and used that as a leverage. We’ve known him for a while, and what he’s been battling. It couldn’t extinguish the light from his eyes the way my SIL managed to, slowly, but steadily over the years. The “good gf” image of someone who “puts up” with a “health risk partner” earned her much sympathy.
