Sometimes I think that I am too empathetic a person. When I see a friend in danger I just want to save them. I just put my littles to bed early with some Benadryl and Cokes, so I can try to figure out the best thing to do to help my buddy Ty, without ruining our friendship.
This afternoon I let the mother’s helper watch the kids alone for a tiny second, so I could run over to the other end of town and buy a chai at the cute shop Ty showed me a long time ago. I was surprised to see him there, but even more surprised that he was not alone.
Everyone knows that I have always hoped that Ty would meet a nice, respectable young woman and have a little fun. He is a hard working young man and has so many great hobbies that I am sure many gals would be more than happy to be escorted around town by him. I would, of course, miss our easy camaraderie if he started dating, but I know he would always make time in his schedule for Lah Lee.
But what if he started dating someone less than respectable? I had never thought that was even possible because he is such a sensible person. But today I saw him in the company of Renata, the bitch who treated Hummus so cruelly at the gym. And he introduced her to me as his girlfriend.
She is a foreigner! I wonder if she is even living here legally? I wonder how you find something like that out? And she is so, so cruel, abusing small children! There was supposedly even another woman at the gym who complained about her and who was so crazy that she caused Renata to be scared for her life. I don’t want Ty to be mixed up with a mean person who isn’t even American and has a stalker! He is Merlin’s teacher and Merlin deserves a teacher who is not dating someone so awful.
I hope she is living here illegally, because then, problem solved. Should I tell him that she is the one who hurt Hummus? What should I do?
