Blast from the past
Y'all won't believe who called me at work today... Muckraker.
I mean, right? I know. That's effed up.
It's funny, in the past I would have been all a twitter... Whoo! He called! Right? Ha.
I know you will NOT be surprised to hear he needed a favor.
I was a little more surprised to hear him asking how my love life is going... Do I have a boyfriend?
Ha ha ha ha!
I the past I would have been flattered by this thinking, "Gee! Maybe it means he wants me after all!"
I was vague. It's none of his business.
Besides, I'm 99% sure that our mutual friend Mary would have told him that, yes, I AM dating someone.
I turned the question around on him... "Are you dating anyone?"
He totally dodged that one.
He asked if he could call me next week. I said sure... Mostly because I'm amused by this.
Compare and contrast Muckraker (Who could also be called Mr.2Old being 12 years older than I am...) with Mr.2young.
Muckraker has only ever been in touch when he needs something, he never does anything thoughtful/out of the blue for anyone as far as I can tell, and if not outright deceitful then definitely shady.
Mr.2young is in touch with me daily (much to my annoyance sometimes,) is always thoughtful (He got my favorite candy for me the other day... This morning he came to my work and brought me breakfast...), and he's totally honest-- to an extreme, sometimes.
There's really no comparison, is there?
Hmmm... I think I got the better bargain.
(Oh-PS! When it rains, it pours! Science Guy is back in touch! He wants to do breakfast sometime this week. I'm amused. I'll meet with him. Maybe I'll bring Mr.2young along... hee... hee...)
