I went to the grocery store last night and on my way out, I ran into a man that was obviously old enough to be my father. The image that you have in your head is exactly how he was dressed. White v-neck shirt, shorts, black socks, and flip flops. He hit me with every line imaginable:
"Hey baby, you need a ride to your car. You so beautiful, I'd take you to your car, carry your groceries, I'd do whatever you like. I'd take the shirt off my back and let you walk on it so that your feet don't have to touch the ground. What's your name besides Angel? Are you seeing somebody? (I lie and say I am because by my parameters, he's a bit too old for me). Can I take you to dinner, to lunch, to breakfast? He says, How long have you two been dating? He caught me off guard with that one. I say 8-months. He says, baby, if he don't know what he wants by now, you don't need him." I have a feeling that he would've said that even if I said two weeks. I say "No, I'm good." He says, "Well baby, I be near you, away from you, whatever you want." I ended with thanks for the compliments and walked away. He was a funny end to my day.
I wonder what he would've said if I said "Ok, lets go out." It probably would've scared him to death.
