And thou shalt gaze upon beauty once more...

There is this certain individual that works at my job. For anonymity purposes, let us call him "The Waterboy." Anyway, The Waterboy is a beautiful specimin of eye candy. I thought about pursuing him at various times over the years, but I have made up my mind that I never will.

In spite of that, I am still very pleased to gaze upon his beauty on a regular basis. It really can make my day.

That is why I was saddened when we had lunch and he told me he was leaving the company. He got a job offer at one of the Big Three (making a boatload more money, I might add). I was going to miss him, truly. We have worked together for many a year. His last day was Friday and the day came and went.

So, imagine my pleasant surprise when he walked into my cube today! He said that the conditions of the job had changed. The company apparently left out a few "details" when they hired him. Dissastified with the new situation, he came back! This pleased me to the point where I was blushing and embarrassed with being so pleased.

The moral of the story: A beautiful visage can make anyone smile. Really ;)

not just pieces of meat

Men aren't just pieces of meat for you to sit around and objectify and ogle at! We have feelings, too, and want to be respected for our brains, not just our bodies and "eye candy" value!

Re: not just pieces of meat

I never said he was just a piece of meat. He is actually quite intelligent and just a tad goofy. Just how I like my men.

Which is why I toyed with the idea of pursuing him. But now that I have given up that plan, I can ONLY ogle. :)

Re: not just pieces of meat

Just so long as it's clear that we're not just pieces of meat for you to ogle at. That's why I worded it that way. ;)

You know I'm just messing with you, anyway.

Maybe this isn't a question for here, but why have you decided not to pursue him? (Actually, I think you may have mentioned him and your reasons for not pursuing him before, but you know how my memory is!)

Re: not just pieces of meat

Several reasons:

1) I have reason to believe that he is not interested in me romantically. This is really not me being defeatist or anything. I just don't get the right vibe off of him, ya know?

2) I am trying not to date anyone I work with. Given my emotional moodiness and such, a breakup(or even an extended argument) with someone I am romantically linked to would probably prevent me from being effective at the job. Also, I really don't want to spend THAT much time with another human being. (DAY and NIGHT? Too much)

3) He has too many nappy headed girls chasing him and I don't want to compete that much for a guy (He's dating at least three woman at any given time when he is not in a serious relationship).

Re: not just pieces of meat

Nappy headed girls? I can tell that you've truely given him up....

As for the eye candy, you typically have a very good eye for men. It would be nice to have a good piece of meat wandering around work..... right Paul?

Re: not just pieces of meat

I have given up on the idea, really. The nappy-headed girl thing is an inside joke betwixt me and him. I've been calling the girls he dates nappy-headed for years. Most of the time, he agrees with me!!

:)

Re: not just pieces of meat

If he agrees with you about some of the women being nappy headed that begs the question as to why he was with them....... then again, men are strange creatures and do some of the weirdest things.

Nah... I don't go that way. But I could go for a hot woman in a skirt! Mmhmmm! ;)

Re: not just pieces of meat

Joke killer! I was poking fun at you..... there's no difference between women talking about good pieces of meat than you talking about hot women in skirts.... tomato/tamato

I know that, silly!

Yeah, that was the point! :)

Re: not just pieces of meat

A quote from The Princess Bride comes to mind... it goes a little something like this... I don't think it means what you think it means....

Re: not just pieces of meat

Uh, okay... care to elaborate then?

Re: not just pieces of meat

I don't think you pulled off the joke.... at least not for me.

Re: not just pieces of meat

...at least not for me.
I'm not surprised! ;)

Re: not just pieces of meat

I love you too

Re: not just pieces of meat

Well, #2 makes sense, but if it weren't for #1 and #3, I would have hoped you would have given him your number or something when you thought he was leaving!

Re: not just pieces of meat

I gave him my number many moons ago. I have his as well. Does he use it? No. See #1.
nappy headed girls
Would feel better if there were straight haired girls chasing him?

Actually...

I believe I would. :) No, seriously, he started the joke and it has just been around for many a year now.

Re: Actually...

Well that's not a very nice joke *pouts* I'm glad you already made up your mind not to kick it with that fool Hmph *grumbles* nappy hair

*whispers* Yo mama got nappy hair
Oh! Not 'yo' mama Brandi! His mama... hmph!

Re: Actually...

You are too funny! :)

Re: Actually...

He's not a fool. He's really a nice guy. The woman in question really was crazy.

Re: not just pieces of meat

Sure they are. Juicy pieces of man meat. ;-)

Re: not just pieces of meat

There are so many places I could go with that!
