Happy Monday kids! I assume you all had a relaxing and enjoyable weekend, that is my hope for you at least. I thought I would start your week off with a little random recap just for fun.
It has been a minute since I have had a good Randy story to share with you and I apologize. All of this trying to behave myself and doing "real" writing has really put a crimp in my shenanigans. But fear not, just when you have given up on getting any good stories out of me, the "neighbor incident" happens. This is really random, even for me!
So last week, the quiet little church mouse neighbor girl that had lived beside me since I moved here several years ago moved out. I was kind of bummed because she was super quiet and very polite and really was an ideal neighbor to have. I was a little nervous about who would be taking up residence in her place.
It seems I had nothing to fear as the new neighbor, a single 30-something guy, seemed to be pretty nice upon our first driveway introduction midweek. We were both on our way out so it was a quick intro, welcome to the hood, and catch ya later type convo. But I didn't fail to notice that he was rather attractive. Note to self...
Fast forward to Saturday afternoon. I has just returned from my Saturday morning volunteer gig and was tired from Friday late night craziness with friends. I was looking forward to eating lunch and taking a nice long nap to recover. Neighbor Guy was pulling in at the same time as me.
We started our driveway chatting again and that ended up with house tours and him bringing me some delicious flatbread that he had picked up at a great little deli and insisted I needed to try since we are both fans of hummus and flatbread as it turns out. Bonus points for that.
We hung out for a bit, flirting a little along the way (hey, we are both single good looking kids and we can so why not?) and then went our separate ways.
About 20 minutes later, there is knock on my door. No surprise that it is Neighbor Guy. He is all nervous and wound up and is cracking me up because he is throwing down his best game and I think he is as surprised as I am that he had the balls to come back over.
I give him full credit for manning up. I also tell him that it doesn't work quite that way with me and although flattered, it was going to take a little more time and effort to move our situation forward. Hooking up with the hot new neighbor upon meeting only happens in pornos right? I did however indulge in a few hot kitchen counter make out moments....hell, why not? He is hot, aggressive, and confident and I can appreciate all of those things.
We had a few half-joking "how awkward will this be" conversations and how it ends up remains to be seen but it is safe to say that the idea has been firmly planted in our minds and I am guessing that at some point, we will see exactly how awkward being make-out neighbors or more can be.
I could not have made that scenario happen if I tried. Nor would I have thought to. But, that is the beauty of being lil' ol' me... random things happen when I least expect it. Just another beautiful day in the neighborhood...right!? !
