I was reading through my joke e-mail the other day and it had this:
A strained voice called out through the darkened theater, "Please, is there a doctor in the house?!"
Several men stood up as the lights came on.
An older lady pulled her daughter to stand next to her, "Good, are any of you doctors single and interested in a date with a good, Jewish girl?"
And it made me laugh out loud (not always a good idea when you're at work because then you have to either read the joke or make up something that would be worthy of laughing out loud for that was not a joke email...very tricky!) and then ponder... I have had several conversations recently that start out "So, there's this guy I know..."
Ever since elementary school, I have been friends with Jen. Her dad is quite like my dad--he's not super chatty (definite understatement), he's totally committed to his family and he's thoughtful of others. Well, aparently my single status has been weighing on him because while he was eating out at Marie Calendar's, he commented to Jen's mom that maybe their waiter and I would hit it off....
And then when I was visiting Grandma Dixie she extolled the virtues of the very nice and very good looking fellow who worked downstairs at the front desk of the facility in which she lives. I was there at about 6pm...she made a point of mentioning several times that he got off work at 10pm so if I wasn't doing anything else and wanted to come back, that's when he'd be free. Now, never mind the fact that I had already noticed this guy and deemed him very attractive. He gets off work at 10pm...and he's very nice...and did she mention already that he gets off work at 10???
And these are just the more interesting stories of "So, there's this guy I know..."
Do you have an interesting story about somebody wanting to fix you up with someone? Do share, I don't want to be the only one that is getting these suggestions...
