Got My Halloween Flirt On...Okay, well, even though I would rather have been partying hard with my masters gals, Cyn and Kim, I understand they have priorities that are not getting drunk and meeting boys.
But my priority is still getting drunk and meeting boys. (Am I too old for this? Probably, once I'm no longer single. But in the meantime....)
And I'm happy to report I did get my Halloween flirt on. Not too many people were at this costume party, but all were friendly and I had a great time. Some wasted fellow dressed as Clark Kent repeatedly accosted me. Gave me his card, told me I was too beautiful to wear a mask (part of my costume), and on and on. The funniest part was hearing him saying the same things, word for word, to another young lady just behind me at the bar. Once Clark gave me his #, I thought I was safe from his advances, but about an hour later, he approached me again. A friend of mine noticed, and tried to pull me away, but he wouldn't stop following us until I told him we were having an "emergency" and retreated to the ladies bathroom. Then, each time he came near, I became VERY friendly with whatever gentleman I was conversing with. Two gentleman in particular seemed particulary effective at keeping Clark at bay (they were both ~ 6'3" and 225). At one point, neither of the big guys were around, so I became quite friendly with a fellow dressed as Zorro (yes, I filled him in on the particulars) and apparently, while I was getting friendly with Zorro, Clark asked my friend "Am I not as good looking as Zorro?" How pathetic.
One of the 6'3" guys seemed particularly interested in "protecting" me. He was dressed as PT Barnum and came around to talk quite a few times. When I was leaving the bar, Clark was outside (puking?) and PT Barnum was smoking. I grabbed onto him "Hey, you!" and made him walk me down the street to escape from Clark, at which point he asked for my #. Yippee! He's 5-6 points on the checklist, too! So even if I never hear from Karaoke boy again (oh, I have to send him those pics tomorrow...) I have some hope. I think I like this guy better... well, I barely know him. But so far... (and if he calls, ever...). Fingers crossed!
I think I'm finding I like the NON-online dating thing much better than the online dating thing. Whatdya think?
