I lived many years in which almost all poinging {getting visibly crushed out over someone} resulted in serious disappointment, and as a result I habitually put cold wet towels on my poing tendencies, especially those that involve people. So when I see other people poinging in what looks to be a carefree manner, I am envious.

You like it? spread it around!

I should have added "or someTHING" -- a lot of people think infatuation is only for people, but I get (sekritly) poingy over other things too.

Part of the pleasure of poinging (love that word) is that it's so exhilarating, but yes--poinging that ends badly scars the poinger and then makes her much more reluctant to poing further. I think it's easier to poing over completely inaccessible people or things; that way you get all the fun and none of the pain. It's what I do--it's probably cowardly! I think I just want to say poing over and over again for the next several minutes.

One might say you're poinging over 'poinging'...

One would be completely right! *grin*

BTW, your photograph of Alice makes me so sad--what a lovely girl. I wish she would have made it. Glad you're remembering her.

I realized I would burn out from grief unless I did something for the kitties I've known who didn't make it. Remembering them sometimes seems like a small meaningless thing and sometimes seems like a really big honoring thing.
