I'm on my way to the parking lot which is about two (or three) blocks from work. Many of you who know me, know that I am often oblivious to...um....everything. (So if you see me, and you THINK I should have seen you and that I'm just ignoring you, yell my name. I probably don't see you.) Anyway, so I'm oblivious. I get to my car, get in, and am pulling out of the lot when I see this guy flagging me down. Running. Now, downtown, I would normally drive away very fast. But, he's kinda cute and he is wearing some sort of uniform so I figure he works downtown and maybe I have a flat or something. So, I pull over, he comes to my window.
Cute guy: Hi. I was trying to flag you down from the bus. I was on the Driver's Coach. I drive for IndyGo.
Me: Hi. I didn't see you. (I really didn't! I saw the bus....I paid no attention to who was on it.)
CG: I've seen you a couple of times and I'm always trying to get your attention.
Me: Ummmm, Why?
CG: I just wanted to talk to you. My name's Harold by the way.
Me: I'm Robin. (Yes, I gave him my real name. Don't yell at me!)
CG: Nice to meet you, Robin.
We're still in the middle of Ohio street by the way.
CG: So, is there any chance we could get to know each other better?
Me: I work at the library, you could come in sometime.
CG: Let me give you my number.
Blah blah blah, he gives me his number. He probably notices me staring at the gold in his mouth. I HATE, loathe and detest men with gold in their mouth.
CG: you're probably wondering about the gold teeth. don't worry, they come out. I have pretty white teeth underneath.
Ah, so you have gold in their as an option?! Still, he was pretty cute..... if not a bit strange that he's flagging me down in the middle of the street!
CG: Yeah, I saw you walking the other day. You were with some white lady, you must have been at lunch.
Is this a little stalker-esque behavior? Should I be concerned? PPC and I took her new black cherry convertible miata out for a spin the other day, which must have been the day he saw us.
So, our paths parted at this point. I didn't say I'd call, I didn't say I wouldn't call. But, for someone who is complaining about her lack of male company, perhaps I shouldn't be so quick to wrtie him off.
