Aurora Survivor love story - creepy or romantic?


Janes Heir

Recommended Posts

Saw this on Facebook, and as much as I want to like it, a part of me feels like she doesn't have enough voice in the story and how can we really trust his word that he was fine with friendship when he was so obsessed with her. Is it just my contrarian personality saying this, or is this a good feminist instinct to distrust easy, one-sided narratives?

It gives me a creeper vibe, just for the reason that she was so much younger when he met her and then he waited a few years before he could ask her out.

He was 21, why the waity katy? Because girls his age won't have anything to do with him?

Yes, I forgot to mention this part.

Well, no, I wasn't creeped out. Bonnie Kate sounds like the sort of person who is capable of standing up for herself. I'm going to take the position that she knows what she's doing and what she wants.

The guy may have idealized her at first, and the age difference is problematic when one part of the couple is under 18 and the other is 21. The age difference tends to grow less and less important the older people get, however, and this guy didn't date her until she was 18. The first time he proposed, she gave him the boot. It sounds as if a couple of years passed, and he remained a friend of the family - albeit one she kept out of the hospital room during the early stages of her recovery from the Aurora shooting. (And no, the pain of an injury like that never goes away. Not completely. It's always burning in the background, flaring up when one sets her foot wrong or even if the weather changes. The fact Bonnie Kate functions so well with it is a testament to how seriously she took rehabilitation.)

Life really is too short to pass up an opportunity to be with someone you love and who loves you. They've both decided to take the risk that it may or may not work out.

When it does work out, there isn't anything else like it.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
