About a month ago, I decided it was high time I tossed out some chum. Get that flirt on and see what I catch. In my world, that would mean smile instead of growl. I can do that. When I first found myself back in the dating market, I had several conversations with my Guidance Counselor. Redating, after a long marriage, is strange. Even stranger was my GC’s suggestion. Each time I unloaded my man confusion on her, she said the same thing. “Make some lentil soup.” Huh? Instead of stirring the pot, I broke up with her, professionally speaking. I can do this all by myself.
As of today, I am still practicing. Haven’t met anyone I want to dance with. But Momma said, “Practice makes perfect”, and I am perfecting my skills – or lack thereof. Results so far:
“Hey, Mr. Thousand Year Old Grocery Bagger, those are some awesome paper sacks!”
“Hey Mr. Dog Store Checker, you are lucky to have hair at your age!”
“Hey Mr. Convenience Store Clerk, you are brave to have such a dangerous job!”
“Hey Mr. Target Employee, red is your color for sure!”
“Hey Mr. Delivery Truck Man, thank you for driving so fast I had to stop, drop, and roll to avoid your massive grill!”
“Hey Mr. Garbage Man, you have big muscles! No hable? Merde!”
“Hey Mr. Policeman, your handwriting on this speeding ticket is so precise!”
“Hey Mr. Homeless Man Who Drives A Porsche, hand over the cup. I just got a ticket!”
Ok, so maybe I need to work some different arenas. The point is, I’m working it. 🙂
Sooner or later.
