Not Your Daughter’s Jeans

31 Aug

There are times when my own stupidity surprises me. Why oh why do I put myself in these situations? WHY??

A few weeks ago a new friend of mine told me she wanted to set me up with a friend of hers. I trusted her to know me well enough to have an idea as to whether/not this would be a good idea, so I said yes. She gave him my contact information and the next day I had an email from him. Nothing out of this world, but nice enough. I responded. He asked if I might like to meet for drinks, and Boom Boom encouraged me to take a chance, so once again I said yes.

The day after I told him yes it occurred to me that I hadn’t seen a picture of this guy and I asked my friend to hunt one down. You can imagine my dismay when she sent me a picture of the King of Queens with a goatee and mom jeans. UGH?? WTF?? Seriously, is this what she thinks I like? I clearly stated that I am very much into the wrapping and don’t always care about the substance – which is probably why most of my relationships have failed.

Now I’m stuck having drinks with Mom Jeans. Tonight.

I hate myself.

    Don’t worry, if he lives up to his wardrobe he’ll just have an iced tea and be back in his minivan heading home by 10ish.

    Those aren’t pleats in his jeans, those are vents so his junk can breathe in his pants.

    Turns out – friends are not good judges when it comes to setups. Trust.

    He probably has a few reindeer sweaters in his closet to match. Super sex.
