He Makes My Clothes Fall Off
Bizarre I know.
To be honest, for the most part I like it that way. I like not having to jump right into conversations about things that cause men to run; the things that scare people away before they even get to know me.
This is where I would like to tell you that I walked into that appliance store and using only sheer intelligence and the force of my awesomeness that I successfully negotiated the appliance deal of a lifetime.
Buuuuut….I would be lying through my teeth.
You see, as I pointed out in the post “Would You Ever Sleep Your Way To The Top” I am sometimes ok with letting my body come before my brain and this was one of those times. I have in the past successfully negotiated some very fabulous deals on sheer brain power alone, I just knew this was not going to be one of those times. I know nearly nothing about appliances and if I’m going to continue to be honest, I am really ok with keeping it that way.
So….body over brains wins this round.
Turns out that he is actually a piano player, degree in music, 32 years old, and working at the appliance store to supplement all the money that he doesn’t make with a degree in music. He volunteers on Wednesday nights and also teaches chess to little kids.
Again, I like this quirky little dude (little as in 6’3, just my type!).
As I am getting up from the service desk to leave, I lean over, give him my business card, and tell him my number is on there if he feels like using it.
Appliance Guy, who I will now affectionately refer to as “Piano Man”, I dunno though, there is something about him. Something….simple.
|Dear trolls, simmer down. Yes, I am the blue blurb and yes I DID buy a dishwasher, but unfortunately the entire thing did not fit in the backseat of my car so I have to wait for it to be delivered.|
I avoided answering most of the questions and then suddenly it just became too much. I started thinking about the nonprofit, the dance classes, the writing, the two kids, my crazy ex, The Detective Whose Name I Do Not Like but who I personally like very much, and all the other million things that are going on in my life right now.
I ended up telling him I was still dealing with a lot from my past that I really didn’t want to talk about and that I was too busy to start anything new. I told him that it wasn’t fair to him for me to drag him along for the ride when I’m not really in a place right now to give him the kind of relationship that he would deserve.
He did not buy it.
|And yes trolls, you will notice that the blocked out name is smaller in these pics then the previous screen shots. I had not yet added his name to my contact list for those so it was the entire phone number and in these I have.|
Who knows, maybe his simple lifestyle could be just what I need in my life right now.
