“What do you mean?” Gregg asked. “Are you talking about you and Deirdre?”

“Yeah, she really lost it the other night,” Dave sighed. “She said that we’re just not in the same orbit.”

“What did she mean by that?”

“Who knows?” Dave said. “I think she has a strong dislike for my circle of friends.”

“Wait! She doesn’t like me? What a bitch.”

“I don’t know, Gregg,” Dave said. “I really do like her.”

“I know just what you need, buddy,” Gregg said. “A new Mexican restaurant just opened up on Mission Street. It’s rumored to serve one mean margarita. A few of those, my friend, and you’ll be saying, ‘Deirdre who?’”

You shouldn’t let me, or anyone else, for that matter, bully you about it. If it’s something you want to do; if it’s something you feel you’re good at, by all means, go for it. Don’t go crying into your pillow just because someone tells you that fan fiction is crap. As I always say, “if it feels good, do it.

Written for today’s Three Things Challenge from Teresa. The three things are bully, fan fiction, and pillow.

Also written for today’s FOWC One-Word Challenge, “judgment.” By the way, I won’t judge you if you spell judgment with an extraneous “e” in the middle. As I always say, “whatever floats your boat.”
