      Really enjoyed this series. A fun escape. And a girl can dream, can’t she?

      Joy! OMG...everyone Needs a Joy in our lives.

      and there’s Joy, wearing a fleece pullover blanketed in dog hair.

      ”Don’t give up! You’re more than just some rented dick!” Joy shouts. “You’re one cool dude!”

      I am grateful to be able to confess I literally had a Joy show up in a surprising chapter of life where I needed to confront a male Imogen - a previous oppressive, controlling handler.

      Love the way this ended.
      Cheers to all of us working on re-establishing the “boy/girl....friend” roles in our lives, learning to value ourselves and give ourselves liberating permission to order the goddamn wings and sliders when we want them. 😜

      This whole series was great! Very funny. Many of the details hit way too close to home. This is the third article in a three part series so start with Part 1 and Part 2.
