Upping the Ante

Another update . . . .

The man I had written off for his complete callousness, AKA Dry Cleaning Man, just showed up to my house to see if my house was okay - since the tornado supposedly touched down mere miles from here.
He didn't know I had returned from family togetherness.
He flies out tomorrow for France.

Am contemplating giving him another try.
Any thoughts?

I agree. And Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is an incredible movie.
This guy sounds like a piece of work. I know, I know, the carpal tunnels. Sigh. You can do better than this poser, Meghan. What a load of BS, your car was back right? What do you mean he didn't know? This sounds calculating to me.

meghansdiscontent said...

Hmm . . . why would Chairborne remove his comment??

True - Both my vehicles were firmly ensconced in the garage. He had no way of knowing I was home, particularly with the power out.

Steph said...

OMG there's a cyclone or something? Farrrr out. Mother nature sure hates your country. You stay in that tub girl! Let us know when it's gone, that you're alright ok!

trueborn said...

Weird...
Maybe he's making up for the "condom comment". But then,I don't know the guy, me speculating is just that, conjecture.
Are you alright?
Is everything cool?

Steph - Mother nature takes the opportunity, at times, to wipe out certain trailer parks. No judgement there. I'm good though! I have finally escaped the dreaded TUB. All I have to say is thank God for my maid . . . otherwise, I would have been in a rather dirty position.

True - Who knows. Chair is a character and his own man, his words are his to give and take. Hopefully, less taking and more giving. I am very much alright, save for the odd visit . . . unsure about what was going on there. Chair may have been extremely accurate in his conjectures. Everything is cool. Thank you for worrying! But I need no triage, nurse.

trueborn said...

Har dee har har. Actually I was referring to your visitor not Mr. Chair. And Triage just isn't my scene, Honey. Give me the ER. Glad all is well.

meghansdiscontent said...

Well, goodness, be more specific, True, my dear! :)

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I agreed to meet Mr. Clean in the morning at the airport (since I'm right around the corner at that time anyway). We shall see if he is truly apologetic. But . . I think all he has is sex on the brain. And if I wanted JUST that I would have gone for something a lot sooner than NOW.

Holy Tornado Bathgirl!

Meghan, the thing is, there is good and bad in all of us. A persons character is very complex and no single trait defines us wholly. I'm sure Mr Dry came to check on you because he cared. I'm sure he didn't have sex on the brain at that point. We are judging his worth based on a couple of comments and some actions. That said, his condom comment was very callous and selfish during a serious conversation. That that said, I'm sure he also cares about you. I would tend to count him as being a dude with sex on the brain but see how you go. Keep us posted bathgirl.

Cyclones, bathtubs, random visitors, shoe wars and web-love...remind me not to absent myself from blogland again!

Mr Clean's visit was a nice gesture, but some guys never realise that it's too little too late.

As for net-love, (and i know this is in the wrong section), i think you can tell if there is a soul connection with someone but i don't know if you can fall in love with the good old Times New Roman font.

I'm big on the personal interaction. The looks, the sparkling in the eyes, the smells, the hugs, the voice...a closeness that you just can't get through a computer no matter how swanky your webcams.

People don't deserve second chances. I believe that if a person makes a mistake, you should hold it against them forever and never forgive them.

Jenni said...

I have serious doubts about Mr. Clean. If, for some reason that only you may understand, you do give him another chance...take it super slow!! Make him wait, wait, wait for any physical connection!!

Eunuch said...

Eh, go for it, at least one more try...but then again, I'm a perinnial hopeless romantic. As for the twisters, I hope all came out well. My family in NLR, JAX, and downtown LR seemed to be just fine.

meghansdiscontent said...

Hope everyone reads this!

Met him this AM for coffee. Things went pretty decently. I was a bit put off when he undid my hair (it was twisted up in a clip so that my kids wouldn't pull on it) and then stuck his nose in it . . . but in any other guy I would have probably found that romantic.

He has already called me - from the plane.

I have NO idea what is going on. I don't guess I really have to think about it until he's back from France.

Now in response to you guys:

Adam - you're right. I'm probably judging him far too harshly on just one comment. But it was just SUCH a sensitive topic for me . . I mean, someone's telling you about cancer and you start asking them if you can screw them sans condom???? We shall see.

Auburn - We missed you!!!! SO happy you're back!!! And you're probably right about Mr. Clean, but call it my weakness for gorgeous men, I'm trying to see where it goes. As for your net love comment, I agree. Nothing is certain until you meet the person and you click face to face. Everything before that could be construed as relationship foreplay.

Arm - I could have guessed you would say that, you extremist you! But I like it anyway!

Jenni - It couldn't get much slower, trust me! As for a physical relationship, sweetie, it will take a LONG time before I let anyone in that area of my body again.

Eunuch - The LR area missed most of it. It was all North - - to me. :) Everything's fine! Other than being a little bathtub sore! As for the one more try . . well, judge for yourself by what I said above.

Chairborne Stranger said...

Uh, sorry, I had a braid spasm-I couldn't remember if this guy was the condom guy or not after I wrote that, so then I removed the comment, meaning to update later, and then I fell asleep, and so-uh talking too much now.

beachgirl said...

Gurl!!!! I need to do my homework on this one.. He sounds HOT... The taking down of the hair?? GUrrrrrrl, that gets me everytime!!

You need to bring me up to speed..

Adam said...

Megs, it was still a very selfish thing for him to say - it's going to be stupidly hard for him to bounce from that.

meghansdiscontent said...

Chair - LOL, don't worry about it. Your sleep is FAR more important than your commenting on my blog. REST!!!

Beach - Hopefully after ALL the detail I gave you this PM, you're up to speed on this. And I think I'm probably sticking with the advice of chucking him . . . but we shall see.

Adam - Amen. Me thinks it should involve some jewelry, some shoes, a puppy and lots and lots of drinks. Liquor me up enough and I forgive you most anything. :)

beachgirl said...

I would like to change my vote, after the update you gave me tonight.. Just let it fizzle naturally...

Now he has soiled my image of the hair thing.. I guess it's only sexy when he asks you to take it down... It's the cordial thing to do..
Is that Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get it On" playing in the distance... No, just me going to fantasy land.. See ya!

So it's past my bedtime and I'm feelin a little cheeky..

He's a Donkey, and a Donkey laden with wise books is still a dumbass. The previous translates as me recommending a resounding "No".

Have a nice day. :)
