Bug Soup

A Broth of Rambling Thoughts ( with some morsels of 'silly' thrown in for flavor)

Can't help it.
Not even trying to be cute.
Young men have been smiling and flirting with me all over North Texas.
Young men.
( I'm pretty sure I have never served lunch to any of these guys)

Even my Mother in Law noticed it!

We had a great time at the in-laws place, by the way.
( maybe more on that later, it was fun, like a vacation! )

So, the cute boys story..,
At one point at Dave And Busters ( a resturant/ game place, kinda like a Chuckie Cheese for grown-ups) a young ( 20's!) guy was next to me at the trivia game , was very friendly, laughing and joking with me. Later, the young men at the sporting goods store, where we took Kate to climb the big wall , were joking with me.
So flash forward to Friday night as we left the resturant and I accidentally tried to put my sweater on inside out ( total dork move) and some really cute young guys waiting outside stopped me from making a huge fashion faux pas.
I thanked them, made a joke they laughed at, they joked back, and then Dad walked out and asked what was funny.
I said, " Oh nothing, just young men flirting with me!"
And that was when Diane, ( the step MIL) said, " You know that has been happening all day!"
And I realised , she was right.
She and I laughed about it.
I said, " Must be my make-up!"

But really, I'm not hot enough for young men to be friendly with me, unless they are just being friendly. ( Do cute young men just be friendly for no reason?)
Oh sure, I look pretty good for my age. I look younger than my age, actually.
But I am about 40 pounds over, middle aged cute.
I 'm the gal who would be hot, if she didn't have 2 chins.
I'm not fat, exactly, I'm just way over my " hot" weight.

So I'm not sure what these goodlooking young ( did I mention they were YOUNG) men were thinking.
Maybe I seem approachable. Maybe I still have the smell of french fry serving Lunch Lady on me. ( Guys love food )

Then today, I am at the local WalMart, and this really cute ( reeeeeeaaallly cute) about 25 year old guy , smiles at me and says, " Hi!"
And he gives me "the eye" .
You know the one, like the sexy eye.
I fear I may be emiting some high potency pheremones.
I can't explain it!
I don't even dress good.
Today I was wearing the Ugly Uniform. ( which is , in FACT, the worlds ugliest work uniform)
It's not as if I smell of sex or anything, I'm not even good at sex when I get it.

But for some reason, young men like me. They smile at me, they talk to me.
I don't get it.

It's a mystery.
I'm not going to do anything about it, but I'm not going to complain either.

You are adorable Buggy. Of course the young guys are hot for you. You're hot Buggy! The only guys I have giving me the "eye" are old dirty pervs. *sigh*

They must like what they see to be flirting with you. Take it as a compliment. I didn't realize until today you were another TX person.

As a guy, I can comment on this expertly. Weight and looks don't always matter as much as you might think. Some women just exude sex appeal. I dont know whether it's the attitude or what, but you can just feel it in their presence.

This is obviously you. And that's if I take you at your word that you're 40 lbs above hot, which is probably not true at all. You probably really ARE a hottie!

Nookie - I am *NOT* a dirty old perv!

Oh. I'm in Mesquite. Not to far from Plano either. Momma and I have known each other for quite a few years. I have some friends that live in Cresson not to far from Granbury.

I'm sure true has some inappropriate remark about your being short and the perfect table for a beer that would make sense here.

Your natural sweetness just shines through. That's something that's sorely lacking in most youngsters today.

Woo woo! Good for you, Buggy! The young mens know a good thing when they see it.

So...you gonna share some of that magnetism or what? :)

Buggy is cute!

I think that you are probably giving off a mixture of kindness, sexiness, and deep-fried food that they just can't resist.

You hot woman you....we should hang out b/c this is increasing in my life as well and I am a bit baffled.

Okay, can you and Jen bottle some of that and send it to me?

Though, come to think of it, a much younger man flirted with me this past Saturday night. But he was so bowled over when I told him my real age that I think I scared him away. I think he said his mom was younger than me.

See? That's the difference. I scare them. You don't.
