Something happened to me this week that was very rom com like!
I was out Monday afternoon on a run around the bay when I got a voicemail message. I pulled off the track to check it and whilst I was standing by the water listening to the message, a little ginger fluff ball dog came up to me and dropped a ball at my feet.
I looked around and saw a guy following the dog. He came up to me and apologised saying that his dog is always trying to find someone new to throw his ball for him. I don’t know what came over me as I replied saying ‘well if it was a more manly dog I would assume that you have trained it to pick up chicks in the park, but that’s obviously your girlfriend’s dog’.
Where did I get the balls for that? Especially whilst wearing my least flattering exercise gear!
He laughed and said ‘no, it was the ex’s dog, but there is no girlfriend now’ with a cheeky grin on his face.
We chatted about the dog for a bit, how nice the afternoon was, how crazy the hail/snow was in Sydney last weekend and where we both lived and how often we are on the bay run. Then his dog started wandering away (clearly he knew that I’m not really in to fluff ball dogs) and he asked for my phone number!
Score! He seemed like a nice guy, but considering it was early afternoon he is likely a tradey which is not usually my type and he did sound a little ockerish. I also didn’t get a good look at him as he was wearing a hat and sunnies (as was I). So we’ll see what happens there…
After I left him I returned the call from the voicemail message which was from my car salesman who I’ve been quite certain will ask me out before we finish doing business together. He was arranging the delivery of my new car (yes, I’ve bought something!!!) for later this week and when he heard I’m off work at the moment, he replied ‘when are we going for a drive then??’ and he added that he has the next 2 days off work too. I replied ‘well if I had my sexy new car maybe I would want to go for a drive’. He replies saying that he has lots of sexy new cars on the lot that we can go for a drive in. I throw down the gauntlet and say if he can get me a GTR to drive then I’m in (for my girly readers who are not so into cars, it’s a $170K car which is very fast and super hot). He laughs but says he’ll see what he can do.
So I’ve set the challenge, let’s see if he delivers!
