My Friend "the Hottie!"
First, A Couple Disclaimers:
- Let me start by saying I know that I'm going to get into so much trouble for this one, but it's too good not to share!
- I should also add that the names have been withheld to protect the "not as innocent as I thought!" HA HA HA!!!
- If you don't see any future posts from me, it's safe to assume that my friend 'the hottie' got me...
We had just come from a somewhat intense meeting and decided to go sit outside our favorite coffee shop and shoot the breeze for a while. We hadn't talked in a few days, which isn't like us, and so much had happened in the last week - you know how it is.
So there we were chatting away flowing from one conversation to another like we do. I had my back to the street while my friend was facing it. We were laughing at my story about being hit on by some old guy at the TJ Maxx (I can't for the life of me figure out why it's always babies or the over 60 set that seem to go for me) when I spied a man coming toward our table. We both looked in his direction at the same time wondering what was going on.
The man greeted us and then proceeded to tell my friend that he had spotted her from across the parking lot and had to tell her she was beautiful and had a wonderful smile (both of which are true by the way). He went on to say he was so struck that he'd gone back into the grocery store to get her a card, which he handed her before taking his leave.
I had to give it to him for that approach it was smooth and refreshingly original. He didn't overstay his welcome and he wasn't overbearing at all, just a nice guy who took a risk. Too bad for him she's a happily married woman!
We laughed about that for a long time What struck me funny was how my "always had it together" friend didn't know what to do with herself for a minute or two. It was the perfect de-stresser for the afternoon - for me anyway. I'm still laughing at the remembrance of her shocked facial expression!!!
I told her she needs to do a seminar for us single girls. Isn't there a scripture somewhere in Timothy that talks about the older women teaching the younger ones? So my new plan is to hang around my friend 'the hottie' a lot more often and maybe some of what she has will rub off on me! If nothing else she may help keep the old heads away! LOL!!!
