Last night was an errrr.....interesting one. Got to see Z sing karaoke again....always fun. Got to hang with friends and an old friend I hadn't seen in awhile. It was fun....and interesting. I was having enough fun that I really didn't want the evening to end any time soon, but as always happens in my world, plans come crashing down with a thud! After Z left to go home...the friends and I were staying to have some more fun when I got the call that a fight was going on at my house. I have just two words for you....TEENAGE BOYS! Z and a friend had not been getting along. The tensions were high at karaoke and apparently when they took off....the tensions exploded. I walked in to find Z's face and shirt covered in blood. Eyes still watering from the blow he took to the nose he said, "No worries Mom....it's all good!"REALLY?He's bleeding but it's all good! I was at first speechless and then my question was...."How does the other kid look?" He was fine, just a bruise to the face. Apparently an ongoing argument hit it's boiling point, both boys threw punches and it was over. They are friends again and all is good. GREAT! And my night ended there. I think I am destined to have no fun! Grrrrrrr
So today the interesting and unexpected continued. It started out with a plan in mind and then the plan changed....a new plan was created and now the day is nearly done. All in all...it wasn't too bad. Got to spend the day with Z and he and I had some fun. It seems that things may be calming down, at least temporarily. Things also took an interesting turn in another way today. I got a call from someone I have not heard from in more years than I would like to think about. The hoops that had to be jumped through to find me.....well, probably weren't that bad. I have only moved within a 10 mile radius in the last 30 years. At any rate, the call was unexpected and honestly I am still not sure how to take it.
I have talked recently about.....thinking about.......dare I say the word.....dating?! It is a scary proposition which would take me so far out of my comfort zone at this point.....but anyway, the thought has been there. A young friend had even gone so far as to put a profile of me on a dating site. I haven't even looked at the site since I changed my profile. This tells me that internet dating is probably not the route I am going to go. I have toyed with the idea of getting my feet wet so to speak, but toying is about as far as it has gotten. I have a couple of friends who have their fingers strategically centered on speed dial in hopes that I will give them the okay to set me up on a blind date. As of yet....they have not been given the okay. I have also toyed with the idea of the past. I toyed a little more last night but......well there was blood and teenagers and well....you read the above paragraphs. So today when I got the call I was shocked. I always felt that if I were suppose to date again, then I would just know it. It wouldn't be a question or a choice....it would just happen. It seems that not only are he and I old friends but he is also a friend of a friend of apparently a friend......who told him we really need to reconnect. Hmmm......life gets interesting when you least expect it. The only draw back......drum roll please.....he is still attached! He describes himself as being in the limbo stage between married/separated/divorced! Arrrrrggggghhhh! Sounds like we will be just friends!
I don't know about the whole dating thing. I know the rules have changed since I was last in the game, but some things I just still hold dear. I won't ask a guy out.....no matter how he looks, acts or smells (and trust me....smell is a factor). The guy asking the girl was something engrained in me by my mother and I don't see that changing any time soon. I am fun, spontaneous and seldom boring, but I am not cheap, easy, or willing to be someones "on the side!" Does this make me an undateable dinosaur? Guess we will just have to wait and see. For now...this chapter is left unwritten, but who knows.....anything can happen. The possibilities are endless.
So now it is time for the 30 Day Song Challenge. Day 28: A song that makes you feel guilty. When I saw this one....I laughed. Few things do I feel truly guilty about in life, but there are those couple of exceptions. And it is so funny that one of those guilty times also came with its own soundtrack. We will leave the details of the story a secret but lets just leave it at the fact that every time I hear this song particular song......I feel the need to apologize! Here is Taylor Dane and I'll Be Your Shelter!
