I've been bad. Well, not so much bad as not very nice.
I've been bashing a guy behind his back. I've tried and tried to dig this man-Because on paper he's perfect! He's tall, dark, very handsome, a scientist making 6 figures, never been married and no kids. But he's about as much fun as watching paint dry. He's Dr. McBoring! He's socially retarded. And I thought I would be my job to try and bring the fun forth!
"Well, I'm fun. I do plenty of fun activites." He would proclaim. "Well, maybe I should visit more eclectic establishments." I swear he talked just like that. It was then I realized that anyone that answers the question, "Whatcha up to?" and says, "I'm at the department store trying to find the customer service representative in order to exchange an item I purchased last week." Just isn't the guy for me.
As the months and dates progressed I began to worry that he was a succubus and would suck the fun from me. So, in all efforts of self-preservation I began to pull back, literally.
It was a matter of time before words like "per se" and "prudent" would escape the overly verbose Dr. McBoring. Once, he told me: "You're logic is flawed". It may have been but who talks like that?!
And yet it seemed he was interested in kissing after dates. I would do the turn the cheek move but you can only do that twice. Then I moved to the pre-emptive kiss, whereas I would give him a kiss on the cheek goodnight, but once again only a few times can you do this move. So I began to get creative. Sore throats, horrid sounding coughs and the like. On the last date he tried once again to give me a kiss. The only thing I could think of was, "Sorry, I have a cold sore." Seriously!
Here's where I've learned a thing or two about Karma.
A few weeks later I got the biggest cold sore on my bottom lip. It was hideously enormous. I had to hide out for a week!
