So Close and Yet So Very Far

One of the downsides to being as sarcastic as I am is that I rarely find people that I would want to date. I can usually imagine all of the things that will annoy me about a person before I ever speak with them. If I do speak with them, well things go down hill from there.

So, I was somewhat intrigued when I found myself staring at a boy on a bus. We will call him bus boy for sake of this blog post, even though that probably isn't his profession. I looked at him and I thought "He does not look annoying." I probably haven't had such a complimentary thought about a male all summer. It was early in the morning, so I was going to forgive him when he pulled some food out of his backpack to start eating it...even though he was under the sign that said do not eat on the bus. I was so proud of myself for turning over a new leaf, seeing past insignificant flaws. Then, bus boy started eating green onions. Green onions...plain...at 7:30 am...just stalks of green onions. Everyone who got on the bus would look around like what is that smell? There are some things I can overlook but I'm adding "Does not eat green onions plain for breakfast in enclosed public spaces" to the list of what I want in a mate. Oh well, at least it's better than the time I had a crush on the guy who is obsessed with drinking his own urine.

THAT is funny! Hope he didn't have some up close and personal one-on-one training to do when he got to work.

That is the funniest thing I've read in a long while.

Maybe he was detoxing? I don't know.

I actually used to eat green onions as kid. My mom would chop them up and add a vinagrette (and that was the ONLY vegetable in my salad, I might add). I was an extremely strange child, food-wise. I hated burgers, pizza, tacos, etc., but I loved green onions.

Maybe green onions are the diet of some obscure super hero. Perhaps you were too hasty.

Move to San Diego. We'll find you someone here.

Hahaha! I'm going to have to try green onions for breakfast sometimes. Or not. What an odd duck.
