The end of an era
As seasons change, so do the men wandering in and out of our lives. You haven't heard much about NotElliot recently since NotCharlotte has moved on, but he has been a presence in our lives nonetheless. This week marks the end of an era (well...a year at least) as NotElliot prepares to move to Lynchburg, VA in pursuit of his latest object of affection (NotOldEnough). Over the past few months, I've grown attached to NotElliot as we all rode out the drama of his tryst with NotBigMouth and the almost-rumbles NotCharlotte had with her over him. He was was one of my first assignments as I went undercover as the infamous sex spy and bared a little of his soul for me during my interviews. He's kept me laughing during long shifts at the 2nd job, given me a new appreciation for Will Ferrell, and an occasional smoke to relieve stress (I don't inhale). He helped solidfy my relationship with rum & coke and tolerated me as I clung to his leg drunkenly all night, even ensuring I made it home safely. NotElliot, we'll miss you. Be sure to use your Big-like charms only for good and be nice to all the hot ladies out there.
