A Boy Story
February 7, 2011 | 11:05 pm

Shhh this is top secret.

O....M.....G!!!!!!!!!

Everyone put your hair in pigtails and grab a fluffy heart pillow because boy do I have a story to tell you. I WOULD put this on my facebook but this is something I believe my icomp friends would appreciate (my "real" friends would call me an idiot lol).

So last Friday, I was enjoying my last weekday of freedom and devoting my time to getting things off my to-do list that I know I won't tackle later. So...one of those things on my list was to fix my cable. 3 channels were out on my cable box for like 3-4 months and I just never got around to calling. So....today was the day! Of course I was given a time span of 11am-8pm when the cable guy would show up...so I chilled out in my yoga pants and t-shirt with my nerdy glasses on. So around noon the cable guy calls and says he'll be there in 15 min. I said, "meh...let me go put my contacts in because company is coming".

As the doorbell rings I open it up and realize..."oh motha this guy is my age". It didn't phase me much because I'm not really used to guys my age being attracted to me. I'm a magnet for more middle aged men so I figured I could just relax and be me and not care.

Within the first 25 min of convo (which was very free flowing and smooth) we talked about bad dates, being single, what we do for fun (he's a pilot), what kind of music we like etc. This is NOT a typical conversation one should have with a cable guy. So whatever...he winds up staying a while because it wasn't a quick fix. And he told me he was gonna call Monday to check up on the cable situation. I thought, "hmmm i've never had a follow up call before". So sure enough...today is Monday. And you know what? He CALLED!!!! I saw the number (because I entered him in as "Cable Guy") and i just let it go to voicemail. I reverted to the teenage years I've never had where a boy calls me because he MIGHT like me. OH TEE HEE! So I listen to the voicemail and it was all businessy blah. I call him back and we discuss the cable and i say:
"Well...there's no problem with the cable it's just that when you were up running the power lines or something...both my kitchen and hall light blew out after you left."
"Oh okay.*laughs*..do you want me to change them?"
"Oh well..umm.. I dunno...wouldn't that be kind of pathetic if I couldn't change my own lightbulb"
"Well, it's up to you"

But then....as I said it. I had this mental picture of me unscrewing the thingy with the thingy....and removing the glass part and finding DEAD BUGS all in there! EW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY ARE THERE ALWAYS BUGS UP THERE!?!?!? EWWWWW!!!!!!!!

So...now he's coming over again tomorrow to change my light bulbs. I don't think this is in a cable guys job description. Above and beyond service? What should I do when he gets here?! This would be a signal that he's interested. However, his phone voice was so flat.....i'm overthinking this but I'm amusing myself at the same time.

i'll let you know of my mischief soon!

-Linda

Hi Linda!

I love this blog! I'm going to play 'protective female relative' and present some questions for consideration. You never know where you'll find love...maybe the cable company is the new match.com!! smiley

He's a pilot..commercial? Private? (just curious smiley

When you talked about mutual 'bad dates', did any yellow flags come to mind?

How long has he worked for the cable company? Have you asked him if he gives everyone this kind of super duper service? His name isn't "Chip", is it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhtIydTmOVU Love that clip!

Everybody is a stranger when you first meet them. Keep your antenna up for any weird vibes. He already knows where you live and that you're open and friendly...Might be fun to group date with your friends if you take it to the next step.

Halogen or incandescent?

Looking forward your continuing blog... smiley

CU!
