Crushing a "crush"?

Ok, I know this isn't technically writing related, but I had to share...with the 4 or 5 people who actually read this thing. LOL! That's all right. I'm getting good exercise in those random streams of conscious that are supposed to be fantastic for writers. If I had more time to surf other blogs and post there, I know I'd get more hits here, but marketing right now is taking a back seat. Will try to establish a solid "blog" time by the beginning of February where I can surf and post.

Anyway, back to my original thought. Younger brother was heading out with some friends to the mall and one of them remarked about our dog. Yes, I still live at home, sort of. I rent the downstairs part of a split-level house and have my own full bath, kitchenette (minus the stove), bedroom, office and general living area. Upside is low rent. Downside? Having to endure family drama unfolding upstairs. *g*

But, tonight was great. One of brother's friends asked how old our dog was. I told him around 95 (14 in May). Friend asked me how old I was when my family got the dog and guessed around 5. At first, I thought I heard him incorrectly. But, no. He was guessing I was around 20. Wow! What a compliment! Off by a decade, but that's not too bad. Of course, considering he's 19 and has been a little "attentive", it does make me wonder. Nice guy. Good heart. Going to make a gal real happy one day. Shame I can't get men *my* age to hang around.

At least I can take comfort that I haven't "crushed a crush" with any eligible men in my life...at least not to my knowledge. One of these days, God'll bring me my knight on his white steed...

Until then, I'll keep writing and dreaming.

You bet he will, a big white charger, LOL! Amber, the guy that gets you will be so incredibly blessed. And so will you, I'm sure.

Oh that's hilarious, although you probably don't think so. ;) Young love...literally...

You'll find him, girl. I've discovered it totally is true--you find Mr. Right when you're not looking, or at the very least TRYING not to look. LOL. That's how it was for me. And thank You God it wasn't sooner, because I would have been a totally psycho girlfriend.

Aww, Dineen. Thank you. *blushes* Yes, I *will* be blessed when God leads me to my soul mate. And Camy, believe me. I'm *trying* not to look. LOL! Although I don't think I have to worry about the psycho girlfriend. *g* You plotters, though. I don't know...
