I have spent the last half hour in a state of absolute shock. The words "God! Oh. My." have been running through my head like crazy, but not in that order and with a different inflection every time.
I had a really good day at work today. Got all of my work done early. There were no bitches (which was fantasmic) and we got to leave early. I stuck my mp3 player on and got to dance in the empty halls like a complete tard. It was so relaxed.
Some of my more astute readers will have known Married Man. Who I suspected wasn't married but didn't know for absolutely sure. Pretty much everyone will know Green Eyes. What you don't know (but you may suspect) is that because I suspected Married Man wasn't actually married, I renamed him.
But I wasn't quite sure. So on top of todays high I decided that today was the day. The day I stopped waiting for a chance and found out for sure. He came down just as we were about to leave. I picked his brain about something and he wandered off to his area to do his thing. I went and got changed. Then I went around to ask him where it would be more private. He was absorbed in his work and wouldn't be able to talk to me. Dammit. I went back to the tearoom to talk to my supervisor (we're working tomorrow morning). And he asked me to turn off some lights back where I had been already. Naturally I jumped at the chance. As I walked past his work area I saw that he was finished doing his thang.
I asked him straight out. No beating around the bush, because I know if I do that I will invariably chicken out.
Me: Are you single?
Him: Am I single?
Me: Do you wanna go out sometime?
Him: Do I wanna go out sometime?
(I just realised he repeated what I said an awful lot)
Him: *Moves closer*
Me: *His body language says 'let her down gently', craaap*
Him: What did you have in mind?
Me: I dunno, I hadn't thought beyond the asking bit. Do you still have my number?
Him: You texted me about *subject* yesterday?
Me: Yeah, that was me.
Him: Then yes.
Me: Ok. Come up with something and give me a call.
Him: I will.
Hooray for me!
