Not Again!!

Peeps. Beachy Mimi is just not meant to have a love interest at this time.

G. showed so much promise.

Let me tell you about the romantic date that...wasn't.

Actually, that's the problem. There is absolutely nothing to tell. We did go out to eat which was nice. We went to a movie and had to sit on the first row. And...that's all, Peeps.

No dancing, no big romance. Nada. Nothin. Blah.

In fact...get ready for this...

HE TOLD ME MY ANKLES WERE...FAT. Seriously. Remember how nice I was about his toes? Well, I think he had the beginnings of a fungus on one toenail, the jerk.

What man tells any woman she has Amish Ankles? Not a married one, that's for sure.
Nor one that wishes to continue dating on a regular basis.

Then he had the nerve to ask me if he hurt my feelings.

Well, YES! My inner two-year-old wanted to come back with a real beachy comment like..."fat ankles match your fat gut", or, "tubby tummy, you are one to talk about body parts".

However, I conducted myself like a lady and kept my mouth shut. I know. I'm a chicken, but I hate confrontation.

By the way, he is so far off the radar I don't even remember his name.

Ha. Ha. So. There.

I'm sorry he wasn't the one. Brings to mind the old Nazereth song "Love Hurts".

I wish I had something witty to say, but I don't.

We all love you BM!


Lauren said...

Not that you aren't perfectly intuitive of all things, but are you sure "Amish ankles" meant "fat ankles" and not "when I see them I go weak in the knees"? Just asking

Kristen@nosmallthing said...

Oh Crap. I'm sorry BM. But really, what kind of guy would say that to a lady?

Your granddaughter was right...

Hang in there. There is a plan, you know.

I am so bummed!!
As the mom of 3 boys, I will add his comment to the list of things I am teaching my boys to never say to any woman..although I think even my 6 year old knows not to say that to anyone....

Jerk. I probably would have blurted out the 2-yr.-old comments though.

3girlsmom said...

Wait. What? WHAT? He said what?! Are you kidding me? Oh no he didn't!
See ya, G. May he be cursed with a toe fungus.

PeepOne said...

PeepOne here. He so does not
deserve you. Talk about
no class! Gezzz.
It is a good thing I don't have
his number. When it comes to Beachy
Mimi I get very defensive. I could
tell him in a New York minute what
I think. I know her Peeps would
back me. Watch out Tubs!

Tammy said...

No ma'am. Absolutely not. This will not be tolerated by any of BM's posse!

*poof* Be gone, G. You are not welcome here.

a Tonggu Momma said...

He said you had cankles?!?!?!!! Your granddaughter was right. Listen to the child.

And may G die slowly - -Death By Toe Fungus.

Angie said...

Oh NO. I'm sorry. Like you, I probably would have run from the confrontation, but I can't believe he told you that!

I reckon it's better to find out sooner than later (as if that makes you feel any better).

Keep hanging in there.

RR Mama said...

Stupid Jerk! What was he thinking? Clearly he wasn't.

Heather said...

Interesting. My his toe fungus spread to other unmentionable areas.

I am thinking the Princess is on to something....

FYI, my word verification is maciess, which clearly indicates a trip to Macy's is in order. And I am pretty sure that is plural.


Mari said...

The nerve! I cannot beleive he used the word fat at all, about anything about you.

Well apparently Princess can pick out the ones who ain't the ones!

Good riddance to....whatever his name was.

linda said...

I hope his you-know-what is so long it touches his toe - and gets fungus on it.

Capri K said...

Well, if he was the one that kept you from posting regularly, I say GOOD RIDENCE!

Cankles, he obviously missed that lesson from his Mama!

Just keep quoting U2, "I still haven't found what I'm looking for".

I always enjoy collecting "shoulda said" statements until I get just the perfect one. Like:

"Did you intend to say that outloud? If so, how dumb."


"Oh, really...because YOUR ankles are toned to perfection and frequently mistaken for Matt Lauer's? Would you please pull down that threadbare sock so I can ogle them more easily."

or another tactic:

"Why thank you, Shuga! 100% all natural, baby."

which brings to mind a usable quote from Seinfeld...always appropriate.

"They're real...and they're spectacular."

From now on...listen to the Princess! :)

You are acting like a spoiled brat. He said your ankles were fat. SO WHAT!
I think you should get over your enormous ego and be thankful that someone is dating you. It is hard for many men to think of creative activities. It was nice of him to take you out. Why don't you plan a creative night and do something for him.
You have a terrible attitude.
