Every once in awhile, some generous soul wants to try to set you up. Last time, I couldn't help joking around!
I was in the room with Cute Single Teacher and a Married Teacher. I had heard him make some casual conversation with another teacher who asked, "You look like you didn't sleep much last night. What was her name?" Men have a natural tendancy to go along with this. "Caroline." Oh great. The only cute single guy and he's kind of a jerk.
MT asked, "So, what are you looking for?"
I've heard this question before and answered honestly so many times. I just don't feel like baring my soul to well-meaning strangers anymore. Plus, it was a disaster of the first degree when I did get set up. (Should I call?)
"Someone nice. Not you." This was directed at Cute Teacher.
MT, "He's a nice guy. Seriously, what are you looking for?"
"Money. One of a man's most endearing qualities is his wallet."
"Well, looks like teachers are out."
"Yep. I'm sooo OK with that."
After that, do I think, touche, I'm soooo funny? Or do I think, Oh darn, she might have set me up with my dream man.
I've decided I'm freaking hysterical!
