So hubby and I are sitting there enjoying our dinner in a fairly low key restaurant, dearest Emily had gone to a school dance. In walks this woman who you can hear at the door the moment she arrives. LOUD!!! Well, of course she was seated right behind us. You could not help but overhear what she was saying… how she likes bright, shiny, pretty things. If a man does not bring her flowers on the first date, there is no second date… If a man does not buy her something on that first date, a necklace or something… there is no second date… etc, etc, etc… Hubby and I are snickering over the whole thing. Especially when she said, "This does not make me shallow. This just means that I know what I want. And if a man is not going to buy me things, then he is not worth my time."
This got me thinking… am I all that odd? I mean, I like shiny things… but my idea of "shiny things" is apparently a bit odd. Yes, I like shiny things… they are DRILL BITS, SOLDERING IRONS, OLD DOORKNOBS, AND WELL, YOU GET THE PICTURE…Maybe some glitter and I do have a love of Swarovski crystals lately…But come on… Ten years ago, when I was doing the whole dating thing (which were few and far between thank you very much), I too would have loved to have gotten flowers. But now I would be happy if hubby created me a box full of rusty things. hehe. I can see him showing up at the door with rusty hinges, old doorknobs, metal bits and pieces… and this woman SHRIEKING at the top of her lungs. NO NO NO!!! I would be like WOW!!! This is so freakin’ cool!!! GIANT HUG FOLLOWS… hehe… What is your BLING BLING???
