Base Instinct

Wow. I have been away for a bit but now I feel compelled to write something. Mostly because the nice lady I met at the bar said she might have a woman for me and I know.

Don't wanna say it's been a while but it has. I got dust in places a man ought not to have dust.

I'm not even sure I remember the rules of dating. There are rules right? Do people still run the bases? Is second base still a destination?

The nice lady said her friend was looking for someone with a sense of humor. Why she thought I'd be a good fit is baffling. I do admit sometimes I get laughs but they don't always occur when I want. Face it there are times when a guy doesn't want laughter at all.

Like when I'm tossing the salad (not a euphemism) and she cracks up over my "cute little wiggle" as I hoist the tongs. Wiggle? What am I a rabbit?

In her mind suddenly I'm a little bunny. That's not a good time for laughter. What's sexy about a bunny?

Yeah that figures. Why am I not surprised you went there?

Honestly sometimes there's just no talking to you people. I say bunny so you automatically think about scantily clad women.

Not appropriate.

Not until at least fourth base.

  1. No one ever said dating was easy. Take your time is the best advice I have. Good luck!

  2. Relax and just have fun. She's probably more worried about this than you are.

  3. Thanks Jayne, but as an invertebrate worrier I think I have her beat. Um wait. Did I just say I'm spineless? Well okay maybe just a little.

  4. Thank you Margo. Welcome back! How have you been? Oh I know dating isn't easy, but I am. :)
