It’s 11am Friday (New Zealand time) – which means it’s 9am in Melbourne. And that means, if my plane hasn’t been delayed, that I’ve touched down, and I’m probably standing in a customs line bouncing excitedly and a little tiredly (tiredly because I had to leave the house at 3:45am to get the airport on time)!
Melbourne! Tethys! It’s happening! Holy moly!
This is a profoundly big step in the evolution of my polyamorous relationships. While I have had a long-distance lover before – my very first relationship when I was a young chit of sixteen lived about 600km away – Tethys is the first I have loved while also loving others. So while the excitement has been ramping up for weeks, there’s also the sadness, as I am going to miss Apollo and Hylas particularly. They are part of my everyday life, and ten days with them at the end of chat and text messages, rather than Tethys, will be an odd turnabout.
And then there’s packing, which started on Saturday. Gah! Which sexy toys to take? Remember to set the travel locks. Do I have all my medications? Can I fit a parasol in (as carry-on, yay!). Remember to add in thing x that I planned to take as soon as I knew this was happening. Should I take my togs if we’re just going to the nudist beach? Keep it all below the weight allowance. Chuck in the chargers for toys and camera and phone and netbook. Remember to pick up my collar from Kiana (eee!). Decant shampoo and conditioner into tiny bottles. Take pointy things out of my handbag. Get to to the bank and get some Aussie dollars out. Will it all fit???
This post, even, has been written in spats and dribbles since Tuesday, and then set to post so it will come up at just the right time. It’s all about coming together just. right.
I can barely think about the airport itself. Arriving. Seeing Tethys there. I haven’t fantasised about THE MOMENT or anything like that. I haven’t wanked (much) to what we’ll get up to together. It will be as it will be:
m’Lady and hir property, having a bloody marvellous time for ten whole days. (And taking a whole lot of photos and videos for afterwards!)
And then coming home to my other loves. Which is as it should be.
