Phase-1) Leaving Work Early (just when you least expect it)
– Early days of the breakup
– Was teaching a morning class
– Started to show a video in class
– Already saw video 100 times
– Tired from not sleeping
– Decide to leave early and go back to sleep (nap)
– Out of my ‘predictable” routine
– Not worried, no swivel… naïve
– Just as I pulled into the left turn lane…
– BAM! Who do I see in the opposite left turn lane? Her!
– I have to pass within mere feet of her vehicle and catch a glimpse of her
– THIS ROCKS ME!
– Figures, just when I let my guard down… out of my routine = vulnerable
