(ear)Budding Romance

20 Dec

Last week, after Foxy and I wrapped up some training, I received a message from one of the cute boys in the class.  He wanted to set up some time to have lunch with me under the guise that he needed a little bit of career guidance.  So we met this afternoon for lunch, and he wore a tie.  I commented on how professional he looked with his “little tie” and he said, “I wore it for you.”  We all know that this is code for, “I want you naked and sweating beneath me.”  Come on, just admit it.

Anyway, we sit down for lunch and left my ear starts bothering me.  It felt like I still had my tiny little headphones in my ear.  I reached up nonchalantly to check if I was really that stupid that I’d walk away without having taken them off.  Nope, nothing there.  10 minutes later I get that strange sensation and reached up again.  Still no earphone.  Strange.  It occurrs to me that I’m spending too much time listening to my ipod and maybe we need a little break.

Fast forward to about 10 minutes before the end of lunch.  I’m gathering all my stuff up and making a little pile, when I look down in front of me and notice the little foam cover from my earphones.  I picked it up and stared at it, panicked, thrust it at this young boy and asked, “Did this just fall out of my ear?” 

He looked stunned, “What?”

I shook the little earphone foam thingy in front of my face, “Did this, just fall out of my ear?”

He looked from me to the foam thingy and then back at me, “No.  I don’t know.  I didn’t notice anything falling out of your ear.”  He managed to keep a straight face while he said this.  Meanwhile, I was trying to prevent my face from turning 40 shades of red.

It’s always great to have something fall out of your ear while you’re in the middle of a “business” lunch.  Super times.

    It’s better to have something fall out of your ear in front of a cute boy than to have a booger fall out of ones nose on to the book you are reading while sitting next to a cute boy on the bus which happens to be traveling down a dirt road bumping everyone around which in turn, results in a booger falling out of your nose.

    But that was 6th grade. I’m so past that. I am. Right?

    Thank goodness you were able to put that traumatizing episode behind you. I’m sure the nightmares don’t wake you anymore. -CS

    ***ummmm… look at it this way… better to have something fall out of your ear during lunch than to have something fall out of your vagina during sex… ha..ha.ha..

    See?? Always look on the bright side of life! (in my best Monty Python singing voice….) 😀

    This is an extremely good point. -CS

    Wow. I probably don’t have to tell you this, but he’s not going to call.

    No? Seriously? -CS

    Thank god for small graces! -CS

    Hahaha that made me laugh out loud! 🙂

    Better than lifting your drink (which contains a straw) to have a sip, but instead being too distracted by your company that the straw instead is shoved up your nose instead of your mouth!
    This has happened to me more than once – I think it’s the combination of lifting the drink up, and leaning your head down. I think the lesson is – don’t use straws!

    If that guy had any sense of humour (or sense in general) he probably thought you were funny!

    I’m glad you were amused at my expense. No, really. That’s what I’m here for. Thank god that I wasn’t in the middle of a meeting with my boss. That would have been even worse!

    The straw thing always cracks me up. I love that! As long as it happens to someone else. -CS

    Wicked hot-I’m sure it’s the beginning of a new trend. -CS

    It’ll be OK. It could have been a much grosser item falling out of a much grosser hole. I won’t give an example… I’ll leave it to your imagination.

    Thank you for leaving it to my imagination. -CS

    I also find that the best way through a potentially embarrassing situation is to draw as much attention to it as possible. Of course, that’s usually when the other person does the embarrassing thing, but you know, your mileage may vary.

    I also find this approach to be most amusing-as long as it’s happening to someone else. -CS

    I hear ear buds are the new thing this year. Just face it, you are a trendsetter and if “tie guy” doesn’t dig it then someone else will. Ha. At least the lunch date didn’t provide you with the opportunity to become a First Date Ho, which has often been my downfall. Damn it.;)

    Maybe in 2008 I’ll pair the earbud thing with some legwarmers. They boys will be flocking to me! -CS

    Better a “foamy thing” than gray matter or the longest ear hair, ever.

    I’ve been fortunate to only have to deal with 8 gray hairs in my life. Thank you genetics! -CS

    Merry Christmas Catherinette!

    Merry Christmas to you too, my sassy friend! -CS

    Hot – so sexy and hot.

    But here’s the great thing about younger guys – they don’t know dick about dick, so maybe he just thought that sort of thing happens to all old ladies.

    Oh snap! No I didn’t!

    But yes I did!

    You should have been there. You would have loved it! You know who I’m talking about? Right? -CS

    You should have told him that you were in the Secret Service.

    He probably would have believed it. Aw, too cute. -CS

    On the scale of embarrassing things that could happen its pretty small, but I would still be absolutely mortified. And its the type of thing that probably would happen to me too…

    You feel free to share one of your embarrassing moments with me. I love it when I’m not the only one suffering humiliation. -CS
