Taking a chance

Ok, I know I'm blogging too much today, but whatever. This weekend two great things happened- see previous blog for #1 "Growing with Pooquie", the 2nd thing that happened was that a met a brotha and I took a chance.

I went out Sunday night with Pooquie and I must have had it going on a little bit because the crowd was feeling me- well there was this one guy that I saw, thought he was cute, but kinda thought I wasn't on his level- well until I saw him looking in my direction. Well, I walked by him, then suddenly something told me to stop and I immediately turned around walked up to this brotha took his hand and said What's your name man, I'm %$#&&*^. So, he tells me his name, we talk for a long moment and I am feeling this brotha! My nose is all kind of open, so I'm like ok, you got to get away from this cat. But, I stand there and keep talking to him. After a while, I realize it's gettting kind of late, so I tell him hey man I'm going to give you my #, I would like to get to know you. Now, reguarly I would have been like "let's hook up" or "what you doing later", but something about this brotha made me "want to get to know him". So, I give him my number with my real name not my initial and I proceed to go check on Pooquie and get a last dance in.

Well, I end up seeing the brotha on my way out and I'm sooooo attracted to this brotha. So, we start talking some more and I find out that he lives very close to me, a matter of like ten blocks, so now I'm like of shyt, a brotha that lives in the neighborhood- talk about conveience. Well, after a minute I realize Pooquie is making faces so I give him the car keys so he doesn't have to freeze to death waiting for me in the cold. Well, I talk to dude for another good 10 minutes and then depart to my car. I get in the car and got this big ass shyt eating grin like WHOA! So, Pooquie just gives me a look like here we go again...LOL... Well, we start driving home and I'm talking like a mile a minute about this cutie pie and the fact that he lives in the neighborhood and blah, blah, blah... well we get to a red light and guess who's next to us... So, you know I have to roll down the window.. So, we have a few quick words... the light changes and I continue my convo with Pooquie when all of a sudden I turn to Pooquie and ask "Do you think we'd make a cute couple"- such a Joan moment! He looks at me like I've lost my mind! So, I'm like ok, remember were just ordinary people-- take it slow... take it slow... take it sllloooooowww... this time take it slow....

Well, yesterday I had to see this brotha again, so I called him up and went with him to walk his dogs... his dogs actually also liked me, so who know's maybe my taking a chance will work out then again I might be putting myself up for rejection-- who knows.. Right now, I'm nose is wide open and I'm just smelling the flowers...

Don'cha just love new beginnings? Gotta love that Pooquie!LOL@Cutie Pie!
You're doing a good thing by taking it slow. That's why most dudes don't work out. All the best!
