Back from the Brink

I’m off suicide watch and back talking to strangers.

If and when I run into Elevator Girl I will try my best to explain what happened but until then I am going to move forward. I mean, it’s not like I killed anyone.

Actually, what kind of got me back on track was yesterday at the Farmer’s Market in Brentwood. I started talking to the nuts and raisins guy who was really nice. He makes a home-made trail mix and it’s unbelievable. The raisins are like six times bigger than the kind you get in those little boxes. He uses three kinds and mixes them in with almonds and walnuts. It’s $5.50 a pound but it’s worth it.

I talked to him for a while. Mostly about grapes. Still, I felt a little better about myself afterward.

  1. Yesterday at the gym, I working out on the bench press machine when a old, fat Russian man walked up and said, “You make the sexy noises when you push”. I gave him an icy stare, but he didn’t get the hint and he proceeded to ask me out out on a date! I was so annoyed I couldn’t help but reply, “Barf. Never.” He made a hasty retreat and it was pretty clear I had really hurt his feelings.

    I wasn’t trying to be mean, but it’s insulting when someone old and fat asks a young woman out on a date because they’re essentially saying that you look like someone who dates old, fat people! Anyway, we both started our day with hurt feelings.

    I guess what I’m trying to say is, you shouldn’t glamorize talking to strangers because sometimes it’s not so great.

    1. Maybe he was just surprised because you don’t usually see girls on the bench press machine. Seriously though, several waitresses taught me that it’s a whole different ballgame when you’re trying to hook up versus just being nice and making conversation.
