So I got hit on yesterday! It’s been a long time since I’ve been hit on and this was a pretty direct hit. First, allow me to indulge in the flattery for a moment. After being married for a few years and after being with the same gentleman for about 10 years, it’s a confidence booster to know that there are men out there that still find you attractive. So, yes….in a sorta kinda shameless way, I liked it.
Now onto the hit… it came from out of nowhere. I was having a conversation with someone who visits our office quite often and is considered a friend of the office. He is a single gentlemen who likes to have a good time with multiple women, So, he asked me, as he always does, to set him up with some of my single friends, to which I replied “I have none.” Thinking that was the end of the conversation I went about my business and then he continued to remark that if I didn’t find him someone he was going to rely on me to fill the role [insert a sly smile here]. A pretty cheesy hit, but I think a hit no less.
I must admit that I was a bit confused and scared for about 25 seconds because this was the sort of thing that I was so accustomed seeing on soap operas and I wondered whether this was an adult thing that I wasn’t prepared for. You know, as a child looking at soap operas with my grandmother, there was always “adult” stuff that I didn’t understand. The sort of things that only adults would do – sex in the office or smack in the middle of the day, cross relationships among the same group of people, crazy pick-ups like this one. Can you imagine this setting on a soap opera (Y&R, for instance)? That scene would end up with the two parties in a very compromising position, right. So, having never been hit on in such an adult way, I thought for a second, OMG….I might actually not be ready for these adult situations and what should I say, how should I react?
I laughed! Yup, I laughed out loud until I howled. It was my instinctual reaction because I really wondered whether he had lost his mind. I don’t know whether that was the adult thing to do, but it just came out. Oh well … maybe I’m not ready to cross into the adult world of soap opera life quite yet. Funny though!
