I met a hot guy at the Tomo Japanese restaurant. Yummy dinner. Tried a new soup, some spicy onion concoction we both loved.

His seduction game was strong. He told me I was beautiful and fed me all his mushrooms.

I enjoyed our conversation. He explained how he puts the chlorine tabs in the toilet tank without touching them with his hands, and I recounted a story about how I managed to get bleach in my eyes. We laughed a lot.

I’d hoped he’d take me someplace sexy, like the nearby Staples, to smell the bleached paper  to buy me paperclips   to test pens   to push my easy button but I guess he wasn’t into that sorta thing.


He walked me to my car, kissed me.

I told him I’d had a really good time, felt like I’d known him forever, felt like we had a real connection.

He kissed me again.
We lingered briefly in the closeness.

I asked him if he wanted to go home with me, meet my kids…

He asked, “How old are they?”
“Twelve and thirteen.”
The Mister said, “No thanks, I’ll pass.”

And then we laughed and laughed.

Happy Friday Everyone!

    For me Staples is all about the pens. They hang there before me, beckoning, enticing me with their perfect nibs and caps. I want them all so that every time I write something I can start anew. But if you get off on paperclips, who am I to judge?

    The humble paperclip, harbinger of doom in the scariest thought experiment…

    I may or may not have commitment issues, but I also think paperclips are like staples for people who care about the environment. I had this particular brainwave the other day at work, when I was thinking about how many staples we use, and how they will all eventually end up in landfill. Not to mention all the resources that go into making the tiny things that can’t be reused. (I am quite possibly overthinking this)
    Loved the story too btw 😀

    Haha, I know you too well!!! I knew it had to be The Mister as he is the one who makes your boat float ;). It sounds like a fun date even if he wouldn’t go to Staples. But just thinking about what you could do at Staples made you either think he was hotter or got you hotter. I wonder if the guys who work there take advantage of their job or don’t realize?

    Thanks for the laugh! I figured it was either The Mister or fiction. 😀 And a good pen is candy for the hand. Hand candy. If that doesn’t sound dirty, I don’t know what does.

    I simply adore the way you write Joey! So effortless! You go girl! 😀
