Am finally having my first date in months Saturday night, although I might not post this until afterwards.

<side note> I keep hearing stories of people who re-connect with someone they knew from earlier in their lives, they fall madly (back) in love, etc. etc.

And indeed, I’ve known this guy virtually forever, because he and his brothers lived across the street from us.

A few weeks ago I saw him in his parents’ driveway while I was backing out of my parents’ driveway and he waved. I waved and then backed up and into his driveway and we ended up talking for at least 1/2 hour. I even got a tour of the house (oh, how I had dreamed of that as a young woman…).

We (my 2 next-down sisters and I) all had crushes on each of the brothers B (5!) at various times in our young lives, but we never got past the “snowball fight” then the “I’m calling the cops on you a-holes” phases of youthful relationship development.

Anyway, he and I have been in touch frequently since our “driveway moment.” He’s hilarious, and we both have the same um — “wry” — yeah, that’s what they’re calling it now — sense of humor.

He also came and did some landscape work for me, and I’m told that he told my mother he could see he and I (him and me? us) becoming good friends. So I finally told him on the phone that I’d love to get together and we oughta just sit around sometime without him “working for me.” Just to be social and all…

And we finally made a date for Sat. He’s fun to talk to and has lived quite the adventurous life, plus he makes me laugh.

But I’ll tell you what (and this might be TMI, but I’m betting you’ll keep reading anyway) se* is not in the picture for the first date. Mmnn, mmnnn, no… Anyone who’s done that will tell you those kinds of deals never work out. From what people have told me anyway.

I mean, how would I know since I’m a born – again – virgin – buddhist – monk- wanna be – who – wants – to – live – on – an – island – er???

Yeah so, sorry but “no can do.” I’m “just saying no” for all the reasons I listed above and
