Wild Horses Can't Be Broken

This morning, as I was driving to work, I saw a cute girl in a car near mine. Then, we went out to lunch at a restaurant with a really cute girl working as the hostess. I have seen her there several times before. Cute and blonde and surely wild. I am so attracted to girls that are wild. These wild girls are like caffeine. I crave Coke all the time. But I know what it does to me. I can never take a few sips. I end up guzzling it. If I order a Coke at a restaurant, I will get two, three or even four refills. And oh how sweet it is. It's cold. It's full of flavor. I start feeling like I am on top of the world. I have been known to dance on a table after drinking Coke. I have also been known to be quite fearless. When I have been with these wilder girls, I have felt the same way. Fearless and on top of the world.

But, inevitably there is a crash. Usually my eyes go first. They start looking very tired. More tired than normal. Even if it's 10 at night, my eyes start looking like it's 4 in the morning and I haven't slept yet. My mind fogs up. Sometimes I crash and fall asleep easily. But most times, I end up at home sitting on the couch watching late night tv until three in the morning. Or sitting on my bed doing absolutely nothing for hours straight. I usually get a major headache. And I pay for it over the next few days. My body is so dehydrated; the inside of my mouth constantly feels sticky and occasionally gets completely dry.

I guess I crave that feeling of being on top of the world. I think all guys are attracted to wilder girls. It's probably due to evolution. Or maybe it's just a sign that I am not with the right girl yet. Either way, I can't help but notice tons of attractive girls all around.


  1. A great reason to never start drinking alcohol. I can't say that your reaction to caffeine is typical though. Coke is a very delicious beverage and I recommend drinking it at every opportunity. It's worth the ride, isn't it? Who knows, maybe a wild girl might not be so wild once you get a saddle on 'er.

  2. ASK THEM OUT!!! Don't judge a book by its cover. Cheesy, I know, but so true. There is a perfect mix of wild and calm out there. I'm proof! You can have everything you want Tripp. Don't settle.

  3. Dearest Tripp-esquire,
    I've thought a lot the last few months about your blog. The things you say about the people you meet and interact with. I still can't say I love it, but your insight is sometimes interesting. TBH, I sensed other girls, which is why I had a hard time getting close to you--and then it stung to read the negative things you had to say about it all. Who wouldn't be caught off guard, really? But it's made me take a deeper look at myself and the things I do/say, it's helped me reflect how my words can be perceived differenlty than I intend them. I have much to work on, especially when it comes to being more gentle and more kind. We all need a little criticism here and there to keep us in check. I wish that we could've talked this out in person. I think you're a good guy trying to find your way...and I'm glad we crossed paths for a season.
    Thanks for the fun conversations, the awesome concert, the great meals and for all the quirky things you do that make you who you are.
    My best,

  4. Dear Tabbi:

    Thank you for your comment. Although you won't believe me, it means a lot to me. I never intended for you to read any of the things that I wrote about you. I was critical because I wrote anonymously about someone that I also thought was anonymous. I kept asking you out because I did have fun with you.

    Since dating you, I have blogged less and been less open in the things I blog about. BFF basically told me that she was no longer my friend because of what happened. I really struggled with keeping this blog open.

    I cannot take back the words I wrote. But I can say that I am sorry. I wish you well in life.

    Love Tripp

  5. Tripp,
    It's all good, I still don't love the blog but it's smart that you're being more accountable, it will help when (not if) you find the right gal. We can't change what happened and I'm sorry that BFF got dragged into it.

    For the record, I got a really sweet blender myself and I make a green smoothie everyday: apple, banana, orange, berries, carrots, kale, spinach and water. No sugar or preservatives. There's definitely tastier smoothies out there, but it gives me so much energy--and nutrients. Sometimes it takes like vomit actually...haha..but I tell myself it's good for me and I chug it down(kinda like popeye)!!

    Haha..anyway, sorry you got caught in my vengeance. I always have been a spitfire-not sure that will ever change but I'm not capable of holding a grudge. Hope things are going well with you and you'd better wave if ever we pass on the street:)
