I was going to do a serious post tonight. Then I decided, it’s Friday, let’s have a little fun! So I was going to write a funny blog, then I realized that I don’t really do funny very well. At least not on purpose. So, let’s talk about my awkward thumbs-up habit. That’s what this blog is all about right?
Today, one of the cute guys in the office asked me how my day was going. I shouted “Fantastic” and gave him a thumbs-up. Oh, Heather, could you be any more awkward? I do this all the time though. If I like a guy, or just think he is cute, I get tongue tied. I can’t talk to him! I stutter and say stupid things. I once told a guy, who had invited me and some coworkers to eat out with him and the other guys, that I had a lunch date with the fairies. Why do I do this?? I am destined to be single forever. This is why I never met guys from online dating sites. I am good behind a computer or text. But face to face, it’s torture. For me any ways. I am sure the guy gets a kick out of it. They may even find it cute…I wish they would find it cute. PLEASE, someone really nice awesome guy, find my awkwardness to cute to resist!
Since I have so much trouble talking to guys, I just give them the thumbs-up. I even do the stupid little giggle…even when they didn’t tell a joke. That is my second weird thing I do. I just giggle all the time. These guys probably think I am some kind of escaped mental patient. Call the men in the white coat! I found her! Yep, doomed to an eternity of singledom. I totally just created that word. Actually, I probably read or heard it somewhere, but for the sake of my confidence, I created it!
I must confess though, I say I do this when I am around a guy I find attractive. Truth is, I do it with just about anyone! It’s just worse with attractive guys. I’m just a weird person to talk to. I don’t think I have ever had a serious conversation. I wonder if I should get help. Maybe the world just needs to accept my weirdness!
