A Girl Meets A Boy: A friend of mine (now ours) had a birthday party. He lives 2 houses up. I decided to be a good neighbor and attend the party. I stayed for a while but actually was ready to leave because I didn’t know many people and the women seemed to all know one another and I felt like an outsider. But before I left, I ended up in the kitchen talking to a really funny woman and her husband (don’t remember their names though). At some point the front door opened and in walked these two guys. I glanced over my shoulder and then did a double take. This FINE man had come in. I tried to be nonchalant and keep talking but was kind of trying to keep track of what was going on behind me in the living room. There were a lot of “ummm” and “ahhhs” in that conversation. I was hoping he didn’t leave before I got to talk to him… at least find out his name. Well, before I knew it he was standing at my elbow. Yeah, like right beside me! I looked up into the prettiest brown eyes I have ever seen in my life. I may have started drooling at that point… not sure. But I know I was gazing up at him right stupidly! But I couldn’t help myself. All I could do was just hope he didn’t notice. So we started chatting. I probably sounded a little stupid because all I was thinking about was how fine and sexy he was. But apparently I was able to hold on enough of a conversation to keep him interested. At some point the guy he came with came over and said “Hey man, you ready to go?” At that point, panic ran through me! I had not talked to him enough! He hadn’t asked me for my phone number yet! This dude needed to lean back! So I took him (the friend) by the hand and walked him to the other side of the room and told him “Ummmm, I need you to sit down. No. He is not ready to go. I am working on something here.” I kinda pushed him into a chair and walked back over to the sexy brown eyed man. So a few minutes later, I had given him (the sexy brown eyed man) my phone number. Told him to call me and “released” him to his friend. The next day, he called. I was delighted. Like could barely contain it delighted. But played it cool. We chatted for a while about random stuff. Somehow we talked about me liking wine… surprise surprise. Well then he asked what I was doing later that day. At the time, I had a handyman who I would contract my repairs, small jobs, etc – he is a wonderful older man who takes side jobs but… he has since been replaced ;-) But anyway he was doing some work in the house that day. But he would be gone in a few hours. So my new friend (the sexy brown eyed man) asked if he could come over. I told him yes around 7:00 or 8:00 that evening. Well he did. He came over that evening, with a bottle of wine, and wonderful conversation and he has been at my house everyday since!
