The Two (2) Week Date

My date lasted for two (2) weeks.

On Fat Tuesday a man walked up and put his necklace on me (in case you thought that was my bling).
Date one (1) occurred at Chris's radio station. (The pics are two (2) posts below. Check them out.)
"Did Auntie Charmaine come to visit us or Chris?" Brody, my nephew asked petulantly. How many women have had a ten (10) year old and a forty eight (48) year old fight over her?

We went to the Denver Museum of Art, The Samba Room, Abo's, The Cupcake factory, Charlie Browns, drives and lunch in the park.

He gave me a tour of Denver. He encouraged me to move. He made a love song CD that I am listening to now. He did the same thing when we were in college.

This is the first song:

It's as if our friendship never ended despite a twenty five (25) year silence.

We are different people. When we talk, it is as if nothing has changed.

Is it enough? I have no idea. But it's fun.

Restaurant Review:

Samba Room, Larimer Street, Denver
This is hip little joint located in the renovated area of LoDo (Lower Downtown). It features Colombian food and music. We had Arepas, Colombian style corn cakes with shredded beef and Machenga Cheese. It was terrific. We had an amazing beer the waiter described as "black but light", from Brazil. I could have sworn that the waiter looked at Chris when he said, "black" and at me when he said "light'. I'm so self absorbed I could swear you were really talking about ME when describing beer.

Talk him into moving out here. Long distance sucks!

Char said...

Sounds like a great start. Follow your heart, but share the concessions.

Have a great weekend!

As long as he doesn't surf... it's definitely a step up. ;)

Maybe you just needed a guy with a different perspective (not someone who is fishing for dates on a website). I think it's worth looking deeper into.
Good luck,

Yes, it's enough. Was there any spark there? I would love to get together with someone that knows my past - you know all my "crimes".


Well done - enjoy life.

You could blog from Denver! Are you going to see him again, Charmaine? He seems such a charmer and a decent man.

Lisa said...

Fun is good. Have fun! Really. I mean it. I mean, why not, right?

SSP said...

After having lived in sunny California, I don't think you'll be happy if you move to Denver.

Before you know it, it will be winter.


Eat Well. Live Well.

Dont move out until you are sure, cause you cant go back. My last "love affair" (before I got married) set me back quite a bit and messed up my head. On the other hand, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Man, thats worthless advice, huh?

Scandalous Housewife said...

I don't know how you can leave sunny Cali for Colorado. Why don't you convince him to move West!

Anonymous said...

Give it a shot Charmaine!!

I am...for sure!!

If I can do can too!!

Who knows? But even though, at this time, it's long distance..something more could come out of this....

Did everything still click between you two??

P.O.M. said...

GIRL - the men in COLO are soooooooo much better than here.

I'm not going to be a beach girl anymore. So sad :(

Email me when you want to meet for a drink.
