Let me tell you all what exactly just happened! I had to run back to town to get a harness for Bear. We'd forgotten it at the store earlier today. I'd promised Kate that she could spend the night with Molly, so I picked her up while I was out.
Coming home, the neighbor (we will call him Mr P) stopped in the road and waved me down. I stopped and asked if everything was ok, he said yea. He just wanted to chat. LOL. OH MY GOSH.
Let me back up a second. I have been down here for ten years. For the most part everyone around here has shunned me. You know, they all better then this Yankee Byatch. Whatever. Mr P included. I mean, we've had him over for dinner a few times and he does visit on occasion but for the most part... that is it. And lets add to it that Mr P lives in a shack with an upgrade of a travel pop up attached to it. OK? But he is a nice person (slightly paranoid but nice)
So, he said, "I noticed your truck was gone for a few days, is everything aight?"
Me, "Yea, we went to Pigeon Forge for vacation." and we made small talk about that. I mentioned Doc by name and he asked who he was. I told him. And he gives me this aghast look.
Me, "Mr P, what on EARTH are you looking at me like that for?"
Mr P, "Well, I don't know how to put it but I will say it like this," He pauses and looks at the ground like he's been shammed or something, like a little boy on the brink of gettin an asswhoppin. "Well, I was just going to ask you to dinner or something"
ME, "Well, Mr P, I have been down here for ten years and you've never talked to me like that, I never knew but I really can't"
HIM, "Well that might be for the best, cuz you know, if we did go out and you were willing to put out and all, well then I might find us having 5 or 6 sets of twins"
I mean... WHERE THE FUCKDID THAT COME FROM? Back to the story.,,
Him, "Well, knowing about you and Doc, I reckon we won't be doing nothing like that, but if it don't work out, you know you got someone waiting on you."
Me (in a very sweet and nice voice) "Well, Thank YOu Mr P, that is very kind of you, I'll keep that in mind. I have to go, the girls are complaining to use the bathroom."
Him, "OK then, good night"
And I drove off. There was more to the conversation but I just gave you the readers digest version. My head was spinning before I pulled off. Can you believe that? I walked in the door and told Sue and Harry about it. We were laughing a good hard laugh over it. It was really funny.
And more for the record, I am nor was I ever intrested in him.
