So.........despite my inner angst & turmoil and momma bear kick butt instinct with-Matt (see PE) I thought I should write about something happy. I have been hanging out with this awesome, super hot 29 year old. Gabe. (Imagine Desperate Housewives and the lawnboy episodes.) Anyway, so he and I went to Sedona yesterday, which is a 3 hour drive, and we had simply the best time. He made me laugh and be young again. He is the first person that I have met in a long time, that when I talk about Matt, he totally relates to Matt, not me. I can't explain the difference, but it is awesome. I guess he is young enough that he still connects to what it feels like to be a teenager. Anyway, so we were shopping in Sedona, and we walked into The Gap. He had bought me a bunch of stuff at another store with his employee discount, so I told him I would pay him back by buying him something at The Gap. So I was checking out, and I was buying him this jacket he wanted. Totally deadface he looked at the cashier and said, "yea, she takes good care of me" And the cashier said "oh, hmmm.........a sugar momma, huh" And he said, "yea, she takes really good care of me." He kept repeating that until I was blood red in the face. Totally playing this cashier. Seriously, I know it is juvenile, but I walked out of the store and laughed forever. Today he texted me and left me post it notes at work - "you take such good care of me." It was super silly. But super fun. We are not actually having sex or really fooling around - he is just super flirty and makes me feel young. Unlike the other guy who said "I only like girls who look good in a bikini" - this guys likes me for me. He always tells me I am hot, and pretty, and is always putting his arm around me and making me feel young again. Yes, he is super young, and he probably likes any female that walks & breaths. I get that. I know that. Yet, he makes me feel happy. Anyway. Thought I would share my happy spots in life. Gabe is gonna leave my town soon just like most people here. Life here is only temporary. But happy none the less. And oh, did I mention how much I love my Jeep.
