Interesting Propositions

I really was busy (really) and blasting Drowning Pool's "Bodies" on endless loop that is, until that damn window popped up...

The window popped up early this afternoon. Was I on "babb"? Huh? Babb? Who the heck is this? Oh, yeah. Babb...

It's strange getting the beginning of what could be an interesting proposition. I'm in the middle of work and actually doing something quasi-important. Not that I don't have anything to do but there have been lulls--how do you think I do my second round of proofreading? Ah, but I digress...

So this thing pops up in the middle of work and now I'm totally diverted. Who? What? And most of all where? A webpage profile? Okay. Got it and I see it now and it wants to play. With me. All 270 lbs, 5'11", black/brown/red hair bearish me. Hmmm. This warrants further investigation especially from a couple of different angles. Most noticably the spousal angle. Haven't figured that one out yet but will do so in a day or two.

So I watch and invite and wait and then there's a vague feeling of skittishness and avoidance. Do you want to play someday? If so, you had better be willing to chat first. Oh wait, we were chatting....no, no, no...I mean face-to-face. Yeah, that's it. OK, maybe next week.
