So my son’s barber is a cool cat. Been knowing him since we were knee high to grasshoppers. Anyways..he knows a bit about my situation. We been chatting it up, mostly about sports, and news headlines and such. Anytime he gets flirty…I deflect. He always says he had a crush on me since we were kids. I always laugh and say, you had nothing but space and opportunity to see what could happen and you never said a word to me. (not in a mean way, just sort of matter of factly). Anyways, he told me not too long ago that the way I am handling my WS is nothing short of amazing. That his girl would try and take him through the ringer if he ever did something like what my WS has…the way he has done it. Says I’m not like other women because I’m way too calm and not arguing with WS and all that stuff.
NOTE: All convos are in person at the shop. Never go out of the way to talk besides appt times.
Here is the kicker……then he says I feel drawn to you…like I could love you if you let me……ME: I won’t be letting you do that.
Now, decode that for me ……what is he tryna be a KISA…or what? I am the same jovial, loquacious person with everyone……the same story I told him, is what my best girlfriends know. If someone asks…I consider it sharing my testimony of growth, not a cry for pity or sympathy.
I’m not touching him with a ten-foot-pole. I can find another barber…..I just wonder…what he is trying to pull here.
