A couple of days ago, while driving the boys to school, the Morning Dude on my favourite radio station asked a question to his listeners.
"How do you know if a woman is being friendly, or if she's actually flirting?"
I just couldn't resist ... I HAD to turn around and ask the boys "Well, what do you think?"
A bunch of their answers were pretty hilarious, but the one that almost made me spit my mouthful of coffee into my windshield, was when Alec (11) said "She sticks her leg out!"
Once I managed to swallow the coffee, (which is NO easy task when you're trying not to laugh or choke!) I asked "What do you mean 'sticks her leg out'?"
He said "you know ... they lift their leg and stick it out!!!"
Um. Ok. I'm still not quite sure what he meant ... I'm thinking he meant like when a couple are kissing, and the girl, if she's really into it, will sometimes bend the knee back, sort of lifting the leg up.
Like this …
GOD I hope not …otherwise I’ve been doing it all WRONG!!!!
That's why my coffee almost met my windshield.
He's thinking Scarlet O’Hara; I'm thinking pissin' in the wind LOL. Which I guess is sometimes what flirting/dating feels like these days anyway ;-)
It was the running joke around the house all night. One of the boys would walk up to me unexpectedly, stick their leg out in the air and say 'DATE ME!!! DATE ME!!!'
Ok ... I'm finding humor in the small things ... I definitely gotta get out more! Now where’d I leave that copy of Flirting for Dummies …?
