I've finally made the move!
I'm now at:
I'm very excited to show you the changes.
And to give you a hug.
Check it out.
LOVE. PEACE. MAKEOVERS.
"Ok it's gorgeous out, get your bathing suits on!!"
"What you are doing is so important. It's really phenomenal."He was kinda gushing, I must say...
"Oh thank you! I'm a huge fan!" and a fat blank stare afterwards.At least I got that much out! Nothing after. No mention of his films, no mention of his hotness [if you are not from my generation then you'll just have to trust me], no tossing around the idea of some type of follow-up date, or just the fact that I was single...
"Oh hi! I don't know if you remember, you just saw my show. Showy Lady Slipper?"
"And ...[seeing blank stare] oh, at PS 122?"
"Oh yes! Yes."
"Oh thanks, thanks" he nods, walks away.
"Oh! Timothy!" as if I'd just been reunited with a close friend.I am more brazen now. We're like, totally soul mates, meant to be together, and I just haven't given him the right opportunity to ask me out.
"Mr. Hutton?"He is intensely browsing through a pile of clothes. All the winter clothes we have on, and those stuffed in the racks around the room, are clearly muffling my attempts to get his attention.
"Excuse me?"He finally turns around.
"Hi! I don't know if you remember me but you came to see my show a few months ago, and we talked afterwards, and you mentioned how important it was and I just thought maybe sometime we could get some coffee and talk about it..."
I wasn't sure what it was that she was going to get, but I just felt a sudden sensation of 'Alright, children, let's MOVE.'"I'LL GET IT WHEN I GET IT DUMBA$$!!"
"Can I go too?"I, half speechless and half not wanting to reveal myself to what by now you must realize can only be the aforementioned meth head mommy, just shook my head "no" as sweetly as I could to the girl, not wanting her mom to know I responded to her, but wanting her to know there is kindness in the world!
"A beer & an Advil," my new friend quipped,
"then you're good to go."
