It looked deserted. As I packed into a space, a single grey car was pulling up in front of the ATT store. I checked my phone. I was still early. The bridal tea wouldn't start for another 20 minutes. Next time I will triple check the calendar. The bakery looked interesting, maybe I could kill some time in there. As I closed the door and locked it I realized that the man driving the grey car had gotten out and was watching me. I paused a moment to assess him.
"Hey there Cute,
Believe we made plenty of eye contact when you arrived. You caught my attention and thought I would just reach out to say "Hi" and let you know I wanted to flirt a little E-mail me if you want."
His email was written at the bottom of the note with no name.
I blinked a few times in disbelief. Then I started laughing. I laughed so hard I thought I would fall over. A few of the people from the tea were in the parking lot and came over to see what I was in such a fuss over. I showed them the note.
Once the shock of what he did wore off, it was replaced with a sense of pride. I'm not much to look at. I'm over weight, over 40 and a bit of a geek. But I apparently still have something, because he wanted to flirt.
For the curious, I did email him. I told him that I appreciated his offer but that I was a happily married woman with 2 kids. Like a gentleman, he said thank you for responding and kept the conversation polite. He seems like a sweet guy. I hope he finds a nice woman.
