This is direct quote from my lovely brother. One of my brother's finer qualities is his ability to come up with some pretty good one liners - many of them not appropriate for this site, so I will spare you all.
Anyway, this quote came during a conversation about one of my relationships - it was in this conversation that he not only informed me I needed to quit dating divorced men, but that I should "go pick a guy off a construction site or something". Seriously? I had no idea he paid attention to my dating life in such detail.
So yesterday I was carrying in a wedding gift for a co-worker getting married on Saturday. The area around my office is under massive construction - and will be for quite some time, so grimy little construction workers are crawling around everywhere. The construction has now moved into an area where I literally have to walk right through it to get to my office. I have befriended a few of the workers, and yesterday this was the conversation that occurred with one of them:
Worker - Is that for me?
Nicole - Only if you want to get married.
Worker - Let me call home and ask my wife.
Meanwhile in the background, there is this other dude jumping around waving his hand saying I'll get married...
Maybe I should look around and "pick a guy off a construction site"?? Or maybe it is totally pathetic that I am even considering this? Either way, I smile when I think about both scenarios....
