I've been living at home for almost two months now and I still can't believe that a) I don't have a job yet, b) I haven't killed anyone in my immediate family....yet, and c) I'm still single. You know what that means? The return of Penis Radar.
So I walk into Goodwill when I see a tall, lean, sideburned dude working the register. Did I mention he had cute Buddy Holly glasses? Did I mention that his real name's Coy? *insert girlish squeal* Anyway, we ended up bonding over terrible Goodwill art (a framed airbrushing of Barbara Streisand), but we didn't exchange digits.
A week passes. I was thinking of going back and asking him out, but I first had to take my semi-annual trip to the mall for some corporate whore clothes. Who do I run into? Coy, wandering the mall, trying to get people to take a product survey about a fat-burning lotion. Turns out he quit Goodwill and gives surveys for cash. "This must be a sign!" I thought, as we snickered our way through the survey. After I had given my number for the survey, he delivers this egg:
"So, can I call you for a follow-up?" Tee hee.
He calls me Friday night while I'm getting ready to go out. I was a little distracted and rambly because I was missing a sock, but he laughed and said it was fine while I rambled incessantly about the damn sock. Coy said he'd call back, but he hasn't yet. At the time, it seemed the conversation was cute and he thought I was delightfully flustered, but now that I think about it, it probably went like this:
Coy: So, what are you up to this weekend?
Me: ACK! WHERE IS MY SNOWFLAKE SOCK?!? MUST FIND THE MATCH!!!! COMPLETELY WORTHLESS WITHOUT ITS MATE?! FUCKHELLFUCKHELLSOCKWHERESOCKWHEREWHERE!!!
It's been almost a week, and to nobody's surprise, he hasn't called me back. Really, is it any wonder that I'm alone AGAIN this Valentine's Day?
Happy "Painful Reminder of Being Single" Day everyone!
I gave out N'Sync valentines. Tee.

He's good at finding employment....I think he's a keeper, Shar.

If I were a guy who'd just met a girl the week before Valentine's Day, I'd wait until after Valentine's Day to call her back.
You know, to save money on flowers and candy. .

Good point mg. Same thing goes for the winter holidays - you don't want to go buying presents for someone you just met.

i think mg's right, shar. and if you don't hear from him next week, you just go out and get him.
