Sooner or later.....

I knew if I waited long enough something would happen to bring me out of my blogging slump.

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!!!

I read the other day that anorexic people look into the mirror and see a fat person. I looked into the mirror and discovered I'm anorexic. So, no, I don't see a viral 18 year old.

OMG! What is with some people!?! Your daughter played it cool - and did the right thing. She left! Poor guy, he thought he was God's gift - but was rejected. ha!

Wow. WTF?

What a great story! Your daughter has the poise of a First Lady.

I've also noticed that women have the mindset that 'if it sticks out, pull it in' and we do things like 'suck in our stomachs' if we're naked.

MEN, on the other hand, will prance right out in the living room, naked as a jaybird, and never, ever, even TRY to suck in their gut.

What IS it with men?

and at my age, any house I walk up to in the retirement village, is going to have a naked man, or one wearing skivvies, opening the door.

*Sigh* Mine went out to get the paper this morning, wearing the flannel short shorts and PJ top that he sleeps in, PLUS his baseball cap.

Ew. She was smart not to react at the time, though. She made it out of there and then he took his revenge by denying her the couch. Oh, well.

Ewwww...and LOL!! I'm certain your daughter will laugh about this, once the sight of this guy leaves her memory. Poor girl.

What a knob this guy is. I guess the good thing is, your daughter learned that before she spent much time with him.

3 minutes, that's impressive!
