I'm not finished describing my last date.
I agreed to meet him at my favorite restaurant, Ocean Prime. It’s a hip place.
I couldn’t remember his name. It was either Barry or Jerry.
I called prior to arriving...to advise he might experience difficulty recognizing me. (Due to a hairdressing faux pas… I was now a brunette. )
Earlier in the day my nephew exclaimed, “Ewe, Aunt Charmaine what HAAAPENED to your HAIR? It looks AWWFUL!
“Hi Charmaine, I’m waiting for you at a table down stairs. I’m wearing a white jacket.”
“Oh great,” I thought. “He’s one of the waiters.”
His eyes lit up. He had already made reservations for dinner.
When our table was ready we stood. “Those are some high heels you’re wearing.” He commented.
They were high, four inches with a 1/2 inch platform.
My date (Jerry by the way) came up to my neck.
He was already planning our second date. We laughed…the conversation was easy.
He ordered the lobster, I couldn’t decide between the Filet and the Salmon.
“Why don’t you get both?” he suggested.
He forced me to bring home a couple of desserts for my nephews. The truffle sauce on my filet, cost $17.00. In other words, he spent easily over $350.00 bucks
But it’s not the money…it was how he made me feel…like I was worth it.
I’d forgotten…what it felt like.
Waiting for my car, Jerry paid for my valet. I tried to stop him. He would hear nothing of it.
Because I had a headlight out on my car...he led me home.
REAL men come in all sizes.
