Anyone remember that eposide of Brady Bunch (HOW OLD AM I??????), where Jan has a crush on her dentist and she is seeing stars in his eyes and his teeth literally sparkled????
I thought that was BS. I mean, I get giddy, butterflies, nervous, etc but never fireworks blinding me, etc.
WELLLL......One of my kiddo's coaches stopped to tell me something one day and I literally had a Jan Brady moment! The man's blue eyes were literally memorizing and glistening. I instantly thought of Jan in that dentist chair all whoozie.
I have dealt with this coach for a good 10 years and NEVER had reactions to him. I find it all very embarassing. I mean, I never told a soul but when I see him now; I can feel a secret blush overtaking me.
Anyone else ever had that Jan Brady experience?!?!
I made my DS return the equipment. I didn't trust myself to form coherent sentences.

there is an IT guy here who literally took my breath away when I first saw him. I mean, I went weak kneed and got butterflies something fierce. He is funny, very smart, and just quirky enough to be charming. I still think he's adorable but the crush has faded. But for a while there I was all giddy and giggly and madly crushing on him. It was quite fun.

But that is totally me as well. I don't think I have managed to mutter more than one syllable to this guy since. I am afraid of what would fall out of my face.
He probably thinks I went from being a friendly mom to a real 8itch cause I no longer talk.
Nutmeg - I am glad you got past the giddy part....an IT guy is a good person to have on your side!

I was at the second class meeting and he made me introduce myself because everyone else had done it the week before. I just did the standard, "hi, I'm meaniemouse" and a few other basics. He looked at me and said, "nothing else?" That was when I was separated from my ex after I caught him cheating the first time. So I said, "Yeah, it is, unless you want to hear about my divorce." He burst out laughing, as did the rest of the class and all of a sudden, I was HOOKED. Everyone in the class had to give a big presentation and since I late enrolled, I got the very, last spot, end of the semester, after every single other student had given theirs. He made us meet with him individually to go over our presentation and also gave us a write up of his thoughts.
When I got mine I was moved to tears. He told me I was a wonderful speaker and that my presentation was one of the best he'd ever seen in all his years of teaching grad students. It was absolutely the best thing that could have happened to me at that time; a guy who was a major player in our field recognizing me for doing a good job. I still have that note, it's one of the most precious things I have.
Thanks, EvenKeel, for reminding me of a really wonderful time in my life.
- a particular football (ie, soccer) coach that has trained all 3 of my boys (among other trainers and at different times), he's almost exactly my age
- the guy who comes to fix my gas heater, prob around 20 years younger than I am. Can't wait for the heater to break down again
Yes, my landscaper. He has the body of an Adonis
One humid summer afternoon, I looked out my kitchen window to see his crew working on a major project.
He was shirtless....
Driving a bulldozer....
I almost got my camera out ...almost
He liked me, but, I had such a big crush on him, it made me stupid. Like, i could not form sentences around him. Once he called to ask me why I wouldn't go out with him, and I hung up on him so I could text him my explanation. And, yes, I told him "I won't go out with you because you are so good looking I cannot form coherent sentences when you are around. So, our only date option is the movies, and I don't like movies."
It will all be ok in the end. If it's not ok, it's not the end
Happily remarried to a wonderful man (Aussie). I think I found the right guy and the right finger this time.
Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Drat! Hate when that happens!
About fifteen or so years ago, I was introduced to a man and as we shook hands, I got the biggest jolt of something or other. It wasn't static electricity because it wasn't the season, but I know HE felt it too because as I felt it, I saw his eyes spring open in surprise. Weird.

I can still close my eyes or hear a song from the 80's & it can take me right back to that time of my life...or remembering finding some excuse to go hang around where he was playing basketball, washing the car or waxing his surfboard in his garage.
We dated for several years once I was old enough to date (and maybe did some sneaking around BEFORE I was allowed to actually date--LOL) and had a wonderful relationship. Our relationship didn't survive past my first year of college (I went away to college & he was older so he stayed in the city we grew up in). After living away from home for a year, I discovered that I wanted to experience the "college" life...unfortunately, I broke his heart & I still feel bad about it.
He passed away 2 years ago at the age of 48, leaving a wife and little girl behind. So sad, but GAWD, I loved that boy when I was young!
Divorce final 2/10/14.
Throw me to the wolves and I'll return leading the pack.
He and Trac-Fone despised one another. It always perplexed me---I was a naive one.
We stopped talking when we married--boundaries and all.
(And Trac-Fone still despises him. Which is ironic.)
Now to find a single one!!!
