    What's in a Smile?


    I went to do my weekly laundry this afternoon. There was this guy in the laundromat watching my every move. I saw him out of the corner of my eye. Being my normal suspicious self, I kept my eyes on him too. Soon enough, he worked his way over to me and asked the question I get asked a lot by strangers. "Why do you look so serious", he asked. I replied, "Because I am a serious person". There was more small talk here and there and surprisingly, he didn't say anything stupid -- not even one thing to get on my nerves or turn me off. This is strange for me because by choice, I am not the approachable type. And if some dude is interested, I've been known to shoot him down in seconds. I'm very picky. I like it that way too, it allots me total control.

    But eventually, I found out he has kids and that he's two years older than me. I swear he looked every bit of 26 but he was 36 years old. He was kind of handsome - well more so cute because of his baby face. We also went to the same high school and knew a lot of the same people. How did I miss that face while I was in high school? Anyway, we talked for a long time and then I noticed my dryers stopped and I needed to start folding. I kindly said, "It was nice chatting with you". Then I proceeded to walk towards my dryers.

    I thought our conversation was done. But when I turned to start folding, there he was grinning with those perfectly straight white teeth only inches away from me. He was in "my space" and I didn't even mind. He kept right on talking and flashing those pearly whites. I can't even tell you what he was talking about at this point because I was so mesmerized by his smile. I thought I'd write about this as no one has even came close to catching my attention like that in what seems like ions. We exchanged digits and we'll be talking more in the future.

    sounds like he is worth the inquiry, I love it when a random outting produces a nice flirting sessions..come to think of it, i just had one in the elevator of my building..hmmm, I should blog that too, LOL.

    I hope he at least turns out to be a nice friend to spend time with! He gets an A for breaking through your mean muggin, right? LOL

    Sounds like a story in the making. People always ask me why I look so mad, or sad, or serious or whatever. I don't mean to look mad, its just my face. But I know what you mean.

    Maybe I need to hang at the laundry mat.. I have not met a new person in over 2 years.. What does that say about me.. Take it and see where it goes.. Very interesting. Just talking with my friend at brunch yesterday about where to meet people, cause wherever I am there are no new people.. *smile*
