I need to change the title of this thread....seriously. ;)

My speculation is that LO has another job 3 days a week or his SO leaves to be at her job across the border. A quick search listed a new address for her. Damn interesting shit.

So, last Thursday, I am on my way for errands. I pull up to the 4 way stop and there is LO, sitting in a chair, talking to a volunteer--lovely man with stark white hair, full of wisdom and experience no doubt. Just sitting there with fresh haircut, those khaki pants, his legs apart... :p .....I was very surprised, as I have never seen him there and never in a chair. I passed him. I started seeing road closure signs ahead and didn't want to take the detour, so I just turned around. I passed him again, and this time he was standing up. I am hot flashing by now. Overall, I was ok, but it struck me as funny that he looked to be "on display". I went on my way and didn't continue driving by, which I would have done in the past. Again, it was so easy for me to stop, but I didn't. What good would that have done? Oh yeah, let me set myself up to be rejected again. No thanks.

I stopped at a nearby Walgreens and was walking back to my car and I heard a woman say "you are so beautiful. I love you". In the past, I would have just walked away, but I said "thank you". I realized that there was a dog in the car next to me, and she was obviously saying this to the dog. It was weird though because typically if someone says something like that, it makes me uncomfortable, as in "I don't think I am good enough to be called beautiful and I am truly not worthy of such a compliment."

A few hours later, I was a bit giggly. 8-}
Not high and not obsessed. Still attracted as hell though.

The next day, Friday, in the morning, we passed each other several blocks away from school. I was like, seriously? Later in the afternoon, he was in the truck at the 4 way and I smiled at him and I'm pretty sure he smiled back. Dammit to hell that man.

More to learn here.
No extreme reactions.
Stood my ground.
Noticeable changes in my reaction and behavior.
Moving forward..... :D

Thank you. I am curious if you really like shamrocks or if you have a bit of Irish in ya. :)

I appreciate it. Since "the LO" is an Irish lad, my brain assumed you were as well, which is why I had to check.
