#Whoops

12 Aug

This morning, riding in Ru-dawg’s car on the way to work, I accidentally cited him as my boyfriend.   It happened so unexpectedly – I was explaining a situation from last night and mocking myself, which ended in me saying something along the lines of “….what will my boyfriend think?” right as we rolled up to my office.

Tuck and roll right out of that car.   Straight into the world of aprons, meeting the parents, and butterfly kisses.  Ya should have seen the look on his face.  Confusion meets happiness.   A serious change in direction from “summer fling”, which is what he thought his status was before this morning…

I tried to wash my mouth out with soap when I got to work, but the damage was already done.  My subconscious came out to shake hands with my real conscious… showing everyone who is in charge.  And that ain’t me.

If we’re playing by my rules, he now has 24 hours to address the situation.  And I have to meet his brother and all of his friends tonight at his birthday dinner so it’s spectacular timing.  Can’t wait to see how he introduces me.   Will I be happy if he calls me his girlfriend?  I don’t know.  I think maybe, but then I think no.  Then I think about the time he asked me what the skin around his fingernails was and why I don’t have skin like his on my fingernails.   With a straight face I had to explain what a cuticle was and then delve into the process of manicuring one’s nails.  It’s looking back on moments like those when you seriously realize how great it can be.

So what happens if a so-called summer fling follows you into fall?

To be continued…
