I Was Asked Out Today

Now before you all get excited for me I said no.

I had a very interesting week to say the least and a very interesting morning today. And while I won't be sharing most of those very interesting stories I will tell you what happened to me at the end of the day on my commute home from Manhattan.

I happened to catch a bus to the train and decided to sit at the very front. Across from me is a much older black gentleman. He had to be at least 65 years old. I notice him staring at me, but I wasn't sure why. I asked him to press the button to alert the driver I needed the next stop seeing that there was no button near my seat. OBG gets off the bus the same time as me. Hmmm

He walks next to me and politely says, "You should never cut your hair."

I smiled, "Yes, men like hair."

He started to tell me about a wedding band he is in and I thought to myself, ok now I know why he is talking to me, he wants to give me his band's info and network. OK! I asked him for his card. He didn't have one...his partner handles the website which is about up now. Hmmm I gave him my business card and said he could send me his site and I would be happy to list it on my "other interesting services" part of my website.

Then he smiles and says, he would love to continue talking and have coffee sometime. I told him politely, "Oh I am sorry, I have a boyfriend."

OBG then said the NICEST thing. "You tell him he is one lucky man! It was nice talking to you. Have a nice evening."

What a nice gift!
(OH...I have a hair cut appointment already scheduled for Saturday. HA :)
