Bittersweet Blush

Leaha called and left me an urgent message on my voicemail - I returned it expecting to hear about Tim or even McSmiley - though I haven't heard anything of him as of late... no instead I heard something that has restored my faith in me - in the belief that it will be one of these days in a Starbucks that my life will change...

K* our barista boy - the one we placed an I SAW YOU in the Georgia Straight, and have for the last 6 months flirted on and off with - and for the last 3 have not ordered my favorite drink for the fear that I would be found out and never able to enter that Starbucks again. We've talked about school (he just finished a degree in English/Humanities), life and the fact that my tea was never in. Well it's funny how things always come together at the end. Leaha told me a little while back that K* was leaving for a store on Robson (there are 4 the last time I checked) to be a manager - I was sad. But not as sad as I was when Leaha called. K* was working this morning, and so the story goes - K put the whole vegan roommate to Leaha thing together and tells her I'm really cute. Well gosh darn it - Mr. Strict Vegetarian with gorgeous man hair, piercings and an awesome repertoire of literary knowledge thinks I'm really cute. *Blush* Now I'm not one to freely accept compliments for various reasons, one it leads to a revolving cycle of seeking approval but you know what I'll make an exception - I needed that - a little girlie boost to the end of my first full week - dealing with geriatric patients and all the fun of commuting in the snow.

Who knows maybe I'll go in there tomorrow and order my Grande soy vanilla Americano Misto just for the heck of it...?

And your not going to go out with this guy because....?

Jenn said...

he's got a girlfriend

Shawn said...

Is he a follower of Jesus?

Jenn said...

of course not - but the girlfriend thing is the primary reason.

Shawn said...

I can't believe you just said the girlfriend thing is the primary reason, before him being a follower of Jesus. We so need to have a talk! Don't you work during the day? How is it you have time to respond to comments on your blog anyway?

Jenn said...

I have Internet access - and that comment was targeted at Joel - but yes that is also a major reason for me

You could so bypass the christian thing....

Jenn what should I wear????

Shawn said...

Leaha, are you being serious? I don't think being a christian is something that could be over looked like say he has blonde hair and you prefer brown or black. Please, please, please tell me you are joking.

Jenn said...

you know I don't know - if he asked me out would I go out for the heck of it? well that's a question I don't have to ask because he has a girlfriend, beyond that - it's not a bridge I would cross but for one date... yes I would

where are all your girlfriends? too many boy responses (notice i did not say BOYS, but boy singular, so joel is not included). where is the other leah.

and where are you? i come home from work hoping to see you on msn....i'm off to leftover lasagna and sex in the city for a repeat of yesterday, minus all the dirty dishes.

LeahA said...
