I think I'd be really good at dating.
I never really dated much in my single days. I basically went from long-term boyfriend to long-term boyfriend (with a bit of overlap), and didn't have the opportunity to really experience true "dating".
So, now I date vicariously through BFF. You know, it's fun, but not consistently fun, because she has some, um, "issues" (to be elaborated upon in a future post) with "dating" (are you loving my quotes? I'm doing air quotes as I type in case you were wondering).
Occasionally, rarely, I have the opportunity to go on a date of my own.
Not with Hubby.
And, not with that hottie whose been checking me out in the neighborhood a few times a week while I'm out on my morning walk (Fine, Mrs. Nosy McNosenstein, it's the garbage man whose been checking me out, okay?! And, he's not a hottie. He's old. And he's covered in hair. And, he's missing a few key teeth. And, he smells like, well, like trash. But whatever, I haven't been checked out much this century and a girl's gotta take what she can get.).
I had an awesome date with someone more handsome than Hubby, more unique than the trash man, and more appealing than a teenage vampire.
That's right ladies, go ahead and swoon (but go easy, cougars).
He got all after hours sheik on me. Spiked his hair. Used his most alluring aftershave (which he bummed offa his daddy).
And, I cleaned up a bit myself (and by cleaned up I mean I put on a real bra) so we could go to...(wait for it)
That's right, my baby is all cultural and stuff!
Actually, I'm writing an article for a local magazine about theater opportunities in and around our town and I needed a sidekick (I took Mimi too) to go with me to check out an event the various groups were having last night.
We got to watch snippets from upcoming performances by each of the companies.
They were a little (okay a lot) awesome.
Especially this one.
There was singing, dancing, comedy and drama. There was even a comical horror act (and yes, I did a little YOL, that's yelped out loud for those who don't know).
I totally felt like I was on the set of Glee only everyone was way older (and not quite so attractive or funny or cliche), but still cool (and talented and entertaining and perfect for a super hot date with my favorite four year old).
Best part, the entire event was free! And, we found out the Imagination Movers are coming to town this fall, so guess what we'll be doing about midway through November (as long as it doesn't interfere with the release of New Moon!)?!
Jealous much? Admit it, you know you are:)!
