Date #1 of the week went down last night.
Date #2 for tonight has already been cancelled.
Mom brain kicked in this morning and I completely forgot my Ex wasn’t going to take the boys tonight like he usually does. And I refuse to get a sitter for my kids to have a first date with a complete stranger.
Anyway, back to last night’s date. This guy was super nice, but again, not my type. I knew even before he spoke his first words that I would probably not be seeing him again.
Do you want to know what my issue was?
First, let me just start out by calling myself a “lame ass”. My issue is not even a real issue. In fact it can be changed with no problem, but it is something that will bug me forever.
Hear me out.
Let’s just say I could smell him walk in before he even came up to introduce himself to me. The amount of cologne he was wearing was atrocious. In fact, my nickname for him from here on out will be Mr. Cologne.
But that’s not the worst of it.
The worst of it is that it is the same cologne that my dad wears. And I know myself, I know that I will think about my dad every time I am around Mr. Cologne…and that’s not good for anyone.
But never fear, the evening was not a total bust.
We were sitting at a local coffee shop and 10 minutes into our conversation I looked out the window and saw a police car pulling into the parking lot. I don’t really think anything of it, at least until the officer gets out of the car.
And let’s just say, it was my lucky day!
The hottest police officer on the face of the earth gets out of the car…and he is a friend of mine…a single friend of mine.
I couldn’t take my eyes off of him as he walked through the parking lot and into the coffee shop. It was like it was in slow motion. He was walking slowly up to the door and I could feel my eyes getting big and the smile on my face had to have been obvious to Mr. Cologne. In fact, I have absolutely no idea what Mr. Cologne was saying at the time because I was so focused on watching Hot Policeman walking through the parking lot.
The memory alone makes my heart flutter.
When Hot Policeman walked into the coffee shop he immediately made eye contact with me and came over to chat. We talked for about 10 minutes before I realized I was on a date with Mr. Cologne. So I introduced them and hoped to God that Hot Policeman didn’t think I was on a date with Mr. Cologne.
But I’m sure he did.
Unfortunately for me, Hot Policeman and I have always been in the friend zone. It will never progress any further than that, and I’m ok with it.
But this I promise you…if he ever comes my way with an interest…he will get his chance.
Most people I know have what I like to refer to as “the list”. You know the list of the top three celebrities that they would take a chance with no matter what their relationship status is. Well, Hot Policeman is and has always been #1 on my list…yes, I know he is not a celebrity, but it’s my list. And yes, he even beats out Ryan Reynolds...he's that hot.
Unfortunately for me my chances with Ryan Reynolds are probably a lot better than they are with Hot Policeman.
But a girl can always dream, right?
