But I never got to the moral of the story, did I?
“I’ve got a situation,” he said on my voice mail. “Call me back.”
Dang, I thought. He has found my blog. I’m done.
I him called right back. I could hear him shuffling packages in his truck.
“Is everything okay?” I said.
“No,” he said.
“No?” I held my breath.
“I miss your lips,” he said.
I burst out laughing. Then I said: “How’s your young lady friend?”
Clearly, the moral of the story is: sometimes fantasy doesn’t meet reality.
Thanks to all of you who pointed this out to me — you’re on the ball. (Yes, another moral might be don’t mix business with pleasure.)
Surely, you’ve experienced this fantasy vs. reality dilemma. Maybe you worked yourself up before a first date — imagining how you’ll click — and five minutes into dinner, everything fell flat?
So, what’s the secret to staying grounded when you have a crush on someone?
P.S. Thanks to Amy Nathan, who suggested that I might keep my eyes on the Fed Ex man…. Hmmm.
