I'm a good sister. I want to say that first. But I can be a mean sister. Not mean in a mean way but mean in a loving sister way. ( Does that make sense?)
My sister Patty and I used to share an apartment together with another person. It was a 2 bedroom so Patty and I shared a room. While Patty was dating her soon to be husband, I would have to listen to her go on and on and on about Tim! ( You get the picture right? ) One of the things that Patty would talk to death about was, other then how cute he was, was "Did Tim like her?" You need to know that Tim was a shy, quite guy.
I, being the loving sister that I am would flat out tell her "No! he does not like you. You are pushy, the only reason that he sits next to you is cause you make it so that he has to. The only reason that he talks to you (not that he talked) is that you wont shut up!" When the church young adults would get together to do a group thing we all knew that we needed to work it so that Tim would sit by Patty in the car. ( What we wouldn't do for young love?) Poor Patty, Tim was just shy enough that he didn't give a clear signal to her that, yes he did like her. This went on for about a month. They then figured it out that he did ( Patty had a mean dog that did not like men. Tim would come by when we were all gone and made friends with the dog on the side. He knew that the way to Patty's heart was to get that dog to like him)
So that's where the public apology comes in. At work a man comes in that I think is cute and I am kind of interested in him. He's in my book club group. He's very shy, wont talk in the group unless you ask him a direct question. But he does talk to me a little bit. ( This is after I have put in the time to draw him out!) He now comes in the evening and will stay and talk to me ( I talk, he smiles and might say something ) while I close the library. He then walks me out to where I turn to go to the employee parking lot. Does he like me? Or am I being pushy? Other then wearing a flashing sign that says " I like you" I don't know what more to do. (No, I wont ask him out. A man needs to have enough courage to do the asking or he's not man enough for me.)
So it comes down to I really have no idea if he does or doesn't and I really feel for my sister while she was dating Tim. Patty, I'm sorry that I was such a brat to you! ( But it was fun and I would do it all over again!)
P.S. To my friends at work ( This goes for Kellie too ) DO NOT SAY ANYTHING TO HIM! We are not in Jr High school.
P.P.S. Yes Mom and Dad, he has a job. He works full time, 6 days a week.
