You would think that a day off, that ended up being a day at work, would be one in which to gripe about.
But not so today.
Even though is WAS my day off, I merely stopped by work to make a small purchase to aid in my earlier cleaning efforts.
But I did so AFTER I treated myself to a movie; a matinee of "A Very Long Engagement" playing at AMC. The movie was just what I needed. Sadly, its no longer playing after today. So consider this is a poorly timed recommendation.
Or think if it as an early rental recommendation?
Or if your reading this in some other city you might still catch it on the big screen.
As chance would have it, I walked into a situation for which a person was needed. I accepted the offer. Thus I was there to meet what was possibly the most charming (and quite attractive) woman ever.
"Meet" is a strong word, "interact with" is a better phrase.
I consider it bad form to ask out a girl while working and I stick to that. It seems like such a violation of trust to take what should be a fairly nuetral interaction, scripted, in part, on an agreed upon framework, and go beyond the prescribed limits.
But if I was ever tempted.. today was the day.
Am I way off base here? Am I taking things too seriously? Your input would be highly appreciated!
Part of me thinks that I really should just seize on a situation when it arises, no matter when and where. I'm really very good at coming up with reasons to avoid uncomfortable situations.
Maybe, too good?
I take comfort in knowing that I'm not the only one that suffers from this affliction. Kilgore Trout, sensing what I was going through today offered this insight:
Temporary crushes, by contrast, offer lots of room for fantasy and self-delusion. For example, let's say you stopped at PetSmart earlier this evening to buy some rat chow. And let's say that the cash register girl was awfully cute: agreeably flat-chested, long dark hair and matching dark eyes, and a smile that would make Apollo squint -- toothsome but not toothy, flirtatious but not wanton, friendly, warm, possibly even genuine.
Thanks KT for that perspective (expect for that last sentence).
Its hard to guage whether this was a good day or a bad day.
I don't feel sad?
