Yeah ... I still got it ... :-D

Lee is a guy (a really really cute guy) who came into my workplace to apply back in October. He was in and out a few times and we had some really nice conversations. He's lovely and tattooed and dangerous looking - but he's bald. But some of his nicer tattoos definitely made up for it. We got him a crappy little job which he promptly ditched because of a better offer from a company in Houston. So about 5 minutes ago my phone rings.

Me: Thanks for calling, this is Darbi, can I help you?

Lee: Hey.

Me: Hi (this is not uncommon - many temps are convinced that I will most certainly remember *their* voice)

Lee: Hey, this is Lee. Do you remember me?

Me: Yeah! Lee, how are you doing? How is the new job going?

Lee: Going great. They promoted me to leadman about 2 weeks after I started there.

Me: Great! Glad to hear you're doing well.

Lee: How was your Christmas?

Me: Mine was good, and yours?

Lee: Good. So what are you doing for New Years?

Me: A friend of mine is throwing a party and I'm going to go there I think.

Lee: Oh, so what are you doing tonight.

Me: (dumb...not quite catching on yet) Why?

Lee: I was just wondering if you'd like to come out to my place. We can hang out, have a couple of drinks or something.

Me: (after a few moments of stunned silence) Hmmm...I don't know if that would be such a good idea.

Lee: Awww, how come?

Me: I don't know if my boyfriend would like that much.

Lee: Oh. I see. Well, have a great new year anyway!

Me: You too, Lee. It was nice talking to you.

Lee: Bye.

*THUD*

That last one was the sound of me hitting the floor. Not really ... but I almost did. Two months, and he decides to call me up for a date. How farking weird is THAT? And I'll admit it was kind of nice to realize that, as tempting as it was, I was perfectly okay with saying no. I'm perfectly happy where I am with who I'm with. I don't need to explore any other options or try anyone else out. I'll start this new year out with the one I want to be with.
...Even if Lee does have some REALLY nice tattoos! :-D

Merry Fucking Brand New Year, Yall!

Of course you've still got it! Was there ever worry that you had lost it? And don't you worry about us not seeing each other much--it's not like I've made it down there except when your silly ex felt bad about something and flew me down. I understand, and besides, I feel you here with me all the time anyways.
Love you!!

Sounds like someone else in your life needs to get some ink! How about a big tattoo of a VW bus?
