Last night at the end of Olivia’s preschool meeting I was walking over to the people who had the “Meet the Teacher” schedule sign-up sheet. As I approached, I saw a lady pointing at me, saying “That’s her. That’s your wife, right?”, to which the man (whom I’ve never seen before) says, “Well, it’s possible. It’d be fun. For fun, but not for love.” Or something like that. By the time he said it (I was standing right in front of him when he got that last bit out), and by the time I figured out what he actually meant, I think I tried to laugh or something and then grabbed the sheet, turned around, and concentrated on picking my meeting time.
Men are strange sometimes. Was I supposed to be flattered or something? Because while I’m quite surprised that a man would think that about me — let alone say it — so in that way I feel a bit flattered, it left me feeling rather yucky. And what would his wife have thought?! Anyway… just something to share and then promptly remove from my memory.
