The Golden Rule

It is so wonderful dating someone that has the same interests as me. When Laura and I were together not only did we not have a lot of the same interest, she somehow she thought that I was "odd" because of my interests. One of the things that both Susan and I are interested in is the history of social work/psychology. There is a place close to her that I went to last fall that used to be a Psychiatrist Hospital and is now a museum. It is so fascinating (and sad) to see how they used to treat individuals with mental illness. Last Wednesday when we got together she showed me her pictures of when she went to the museum. There are thousands of items in this museum and I think it's funny how we both took a picture of the above item. If you click on the picture you will be able to read it better. It's nice being with someone that has the same values/morals as I do.

Another sign I found when I went to this museum was this one:

I have one tech that I think could use a copy of this. I am getting up at 2:30am to go speak with this tech and do a surprise visit. It keeps my 3rd shift on their toes when they never know when I will be stopping by. I am pretty amazed at how clearly I am able to think in the middle of the night.

I was worried about telling Susan that I was doing this because she worries about me driving in the day and I knew she wouldn't like me driving downtown in the middle of the night. When I talked with her tonight she is worried and said something about how I really need to carry a gun. I told her that I am still getting used to carrying the mace she gave me a few weeks ago. Tonight I had to promise to send her a TXT message when I got home. I don't want her to worry about me because I have lived in the city my entire life, but it is nice that she cares so much for me.

I better get to bed since I need to be up in about 4 hours. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
