The Bright Side of when you do something stupid....
Oh, I got a lot of laughs out of responses and emails.. Thank you!
I realized yesterday I must have a slight concussion. Ah, the pain! Of course I am too cheap/broke to go to the doctor but so far I haven't lost consciousness so hopefully the head bump is on the mend. Really a head injury is the last thing I needed as lately my head isn't exactly right as it is, this will probably make me even wackier.
I really am slightly scared to tell N. Luckily nothing valuable broke. Except his watch that shattered, which he bought for 20 bucks in Asia but I suppose I should buy him a new one. It wasn't that nice anyway. And as I said, I am glad the martini glasses I gave him and bottles of booze survived. Luckily his wine glasses are plastic - smart move on his part as I'm notorious for dropping wine glasses in bars and apparently at people's homes am terribly destructive when sober too.
Hopefully he doesn't miss the shot glasses and various trinkets that are now goners. But seriously, what is up with guys and these shot glasses and bar memorablia they seem to collect. So much silly clutter! Do they keep momentos to remember the night they got lucky or something??
On the bright side of this disaster is his entire shelving system is now dust free as apparently it was not dusted in years. Also a lot more clutter free.
And as one friend said here, sometimes things happen in relationships to put two people to the test. Well, we had one test early on our first outing together where he accidently slammed my finger in a car door and broke it. I would think that is a lot more horrific than this and hey, I never blamed him. So now I destroy his place.
What will be next I wonder? Really this whole thing with the two of us has started out strange from the beginning- a pigeon introducing us.
Ahh, life.. You just never know what will come your way.
I got a date offer from a guy tonight to go to the Rangers game. I'm debating. Telling myself it's not really a date if I go, because really maybe he just thinks of it as a friends thing, as do I. Hmph. Decisions.
And past guy I've talked about before on here resurfaced yet again on Facebook. He found a new job, said he is happier than ever but would be "even more happy if I would see him again". This is the one who pulled the Houdini on me years ago and I swore off dating.
So as bored as I am, I responded. "See me again? Will you actually show up this time??".
He replied, "Like Fred Astaire and with roses waiting".
The one thing he did have going for him was how incredibly romantic he was. But no, I got lured into that once. I've learned the guy who brings chicken soup is much better. (But oh how both would be nice!)
So he might not bring flowers but all signs point to that he cares and I guess a good "test" of that will be tonight...
