"So, we were having this conversation, and all of the sudden...well I couldn’t believe it...
"Oh, she went on and on about fields of daisies or something like that... She talked forever!
"Ok, ok...but first I have to build it up, so you know, you can appreciate the fullness of the moment.
"So we’re sitting there, having this conversation, and she just perks up...
"Yeah, she like...sat up in her seat, eyes bright as a light bulb, and she looks at me in this weird kinda way...
"I don’t know what way exactly, it was just weird. Like I was Brad Pitt or somebody like that.
"...Or someone like that, God! Are you gonna let me tell you or not?
"Anyway, she looks at me and just blurts it all out. I mean she talked about it nonstop for an hour. I was thinking, Hell...we’re wasting time talking...
"No, I’m serious. It was an hour at least! After she finished I asked if she was serious.
"Well, I just wanted to make sure. Then she gets this ******* look and I thought she was going to slap me or something. It was like my asking her totally ruined the moment. It was a little freaky. I thought for sure she was just going to get up and leave like I blew my chance.
"Yeah, well...it might have been better if she did. She just looked at me, not like earlier when she thought I was Brad Pitt though. Now she was just dumbfounded or something.
"You know like...she couldn’t believe I even had to ask after what she had just asked me.
"Yeah, you’re probably right, I am. But look I can’t just...you know, after Jennifer and all, I can’t just leap out there without looking. I’ve got responsibilities to think about.
"Oh, whatever! I am not. It’s not wrong for guys to think about that.
"I don’t even know why I’m talking to you!
"Well...of course, I said yes, what do you think I’m a total *****? She’s way too pretty say no too."
I remember sitting in the living room as a kid. My mother insisted we get a wall-mounted rotary phone with "an extra-long cord" it stretched from kitchen to living room couch where I overheard many' a conversation about everything.
