As much as I hate to admit it, I thought about “being in love” today. I really had no choice in the matter. You see, I had not one, not two, not three, but FOUR girls make moves on me today. Thus, even though I was trying hard to not think about love, I did.
First off, I received a handmade card from a lady who I work with. It was a very cute and well-made card; it had a light pink textured card stock with rounded corners, a darker pink piece of paper with light pink hearts inset, a large offset glittery heart in the upper left hand corner slightly hanging off the edge of the card, and a flower in the bottom right corner with a clear half-bead in the middle. The inside of the card read, “Hugs & Kisses (heart) XOXO,” and contained a brief and friendly message.
Next, a precious four year old girl wished me a “Happy Valentine’s Day” as she handed me a red, cherry Starburst.
Then, a darling 20 year old girl gave me a huge Godiva chocolate covered strawberry.
And the icing on the cake was when I stopped by Walgreen’s on the way home to get some more allergy meds. A gorgeous girl named Kylie was helping me. Kylie, by the way, bears an awful close resemblance to Lacey Chabert of Party of Five fame. Anyway, she began asking me questions about Valentine’s Day and girls in my life. She acted like she was astounded that I didn’t have a “special someone” to lavishly bestow gifts and love upon. She mentioned multiple times how nice I looked as a bald guy. And just as I was about to ask for her number I learned that she was a student at a local high school.
So, by the end of the day today I realized that I am considered to be both sexy and attractive by woman of all ages! In many ways it feels really good to think about all of the girls who have shown interest in me over the years – some of whom where drop-dead gorgeous! But just as I started feeling like I was on top of the world I came crashing back down with one realization… the perfect girl that God has made for me isn’t with me.
