I am still in Mike Jones mode, it's actually lasting a little longer than usual this go round.
So what does that mean for you? A blog post of course!
(Song title is from Kelly Rowland's new song with Ludacris, I like it!)
A guy that I met at the gym called. Now before you get too excited let me tell you that he didn't exactly sweep me off my feet. We talked and I started to count how many times my eyes rolled in my head from his conversation skills (or lack thereof.)
He started off by saying how it was good to see me at the gym because Black women don't normally work out. *Eye roll number one.* He also said that I shouldn't let me sore knee (from my torn acl) keep me out of the gym too long because then I might start to gain weight.
Sir. You can go straight to...nevermind....
I disclosed to him that I was a teacher and he preceeded to talk to me about the "educational model of the children"...
Say what now???
I Googled that ish and nothing came up so I know it ain't real, Google knows everything!
Go ahead and insert *eye roll number two* here please.
He then said that he wants to open a restaurant on the same level as Pappadeaux's but he was going to start it off as a lunch counter. And that he's in the entertainment business. That he has a friend who's an orthopedic surgeon and his homeboy is a CFO. He also said that he loves to travel and maybe we could travel to Houston one weekend. So Houston is 'traveling' now??? Ummkay....
*Eye rolls three, four and five* go here.

I am not trying to beat up on this poor guy, I just felt that he was trying too hard with all of the talk about himself and his friends' occupations. I am impressed by intelligence, wit and lively conversation, not how much money your friend has or your media room. (I am of the opinion that people throw that term around too loosely these days, is it a "media room" or a room with a t.v. in it?)
I am also really appreciating the dudes that I have never had to eye roll during our first conversation. That says a lot. Can we not meet one another's "representative" and just be ourselves?
