A hint from the universe

Okay, so, I'm thinking that my "anonymous" commenter is right. I need a break from dating. And the cosmos is backing up that opinion.

The scene: a good-sized social gathering, a recent evening. This man zeroes in on me. He has sweet eyes, is a successful business man, and is attentive. Obviously taken with me, too. I'm showered with compliments and he's expressing an interest in anything that pleases me.

Finally, I hear, "Would you like to go out Monday night?"

"Sure," I say, smiling. We share details and make plans. The evening is winding down and people are making their way to the door.

"So," he says, "you're divorced?"

I nod. "Yes, and you?" I mean, you never know -- never married, divorced, widowed....

"No, I'm married."

Hear that? It's the sound of the universe dropping a stink bomb.

GUURRRRRRRRRRRL.

Take several long baths and wash whatever is on you off.

Men are bad, mmmmkay? And stupid to boot.

You can be focused on yourself for a while and let all these sons of bitches rot until they figure out what their problems are and can fix them.

Netflix is a wonderful thing.

Maybe bathing in tomato juice would help? Ha! I've got some kinda funk on me that the bad ones sense.

Funny you should say that about Netflix. I signed up for Blockbuster's Total Access service. So, I have my mail order movies and turn them in at the store for new movies while I wait for more mail order ones! Movies are my best friends right now....

Men bad. And stupid. Got it. I can totally get behind that. Age doesn't seem to help it, either.

Maybe I need a massage...from someone who isn't trying to have sex with me!

God, I hate men. Seriously.

The bad tend to outweigh the good, don't they? What ARE they thinking? It's like the ones I get emails from that just say "Wanna fuck?" When does that approach EVER work out nicely?!

Thanks for commenting, though. I'm with you on that.
