elevator encounter

Ok so we all know I'm the female version of a hound dog currently, no man is safe right?

Well dude from upstairs was in my elevator on the way down to the coffee shop. So I struck up a conversation.

ME: (pressing button already pressed) oh yay, done already duhhhhhh, no one home today

5th floor cutie: Yeah I get you

ME: I now need food

5th floor cutie: that's where I'm going too

ME: didn't feel like left overs today

5th floor cutie: I'm opposed to leftovers

ME: as am I, but I'm the only one around to eat them

5th floor cutie: well, there's always dogs...that's what I do

What have we learned here?

1 - I have absolutely no flirting ability - like, at all
2 - 5th floor cutie is single
3 - 5th floor cutie has a dog, and for me, this is a good thing
4 - I have no idea but I like the number 4

Yeah so there we go, longest conversation that he and I have had like, ever, and well, it was fun.

Until I accused him of jumping the line in the coffee shop. Told "you snooze you lose" and not a word after.

Ah well.

He has the same name as my ex husband, I don't think that's ever a good thing, right?

I still have my little facebook cutie. And unless something changes between now and the 30th of the month, I'm pretty sure our combustible meeting will be a good thing.

One man at a time.

Like I have a choice anyway. Heh.

Haha, I can't flirt either. Every time I try, my awkward laugh comes out. The awkward laugh is pretty much right below a lazy laugh when you're laughing for someone who said something not funny but you don't want to hurt their feelings. The awkward laugh is that except that it sounds awkward. I think they pick up on it and run.
