Sooner or later.....
I am typing this with a grin on my face. I know it's not that funny to my daughter......but I can't help but giggle about it.
She lives in a subdivision and really only knows the neighbors who are close to her. She's pretty much a homebody and keeps to herself. She did neighbor with an elderly woman across the street from her and helped her out whenever it was needed. That lady passed away about six months ago and left some things to my daughter and granddaughter. The woman's nephew had been staying with her lately and he was handling her estate. He was the one who told her that his aunt had left some things to them, which was a pleasant surprise. This guy is about her age, maybe five years older and divorced. Well a few nights ago he called her up and asked her if she'd like to come over and watch a movie with him. She accepted as the movie was one she wanted to see.
Imagine her immense surprise when he answered the door dressed only in his boxer shorts. He invited her in and she went, thinking that he'd hurry back to his room and finish getting dressed but that was not the case. He told her to have a seat and he sat down next to her trying to be charming. Homer up there is a fairly good example of what he looks like, by the way.
You know, men seem to think that they are stud-muffins their entire lives. Ever notice that? They look in the mirror and see themselves as virile 18 year olds. Now I've known a lot of men who actually ARE stud-muffins right up into old age but there are also a lot of men who haven't got a clue on how to woo a lady. I can't even BEGIN to imagine this loser thinking he was so sexy he could answer the door like that and have a woman fall into his bed.
If my daughter was the type, she would have been horribly offended and told him so as she huffed out. But she sat there uncomfortably for about 3 minutes, then made an excuse saying that she couldn't stay and left......exit stage right. She laughed about it on the walk home but figured that the things that his aunt had left for her and her daughter were probably never going to see the inside of her house. Today she called him about coming over to get the couch he said she'd been left and he said that he didn't think she wanted it and gave it away to someone else. Yeah............right.
I extend apologies to my daughter, but I can't help it.....this is gonna make me laugh every time I think about it. And you thought these things only happened in books and movies!!!
