I hope your New Year started off awesome. I have had a few set backs but if you know me; you know that set backs are just set ups for my next come up! Amen. That's my story and I'm believing it to be true. If you read my very first blog, (thank you!) you know that I love music and it inspires me. I was born a dancer and a singer. I am just waiting for God to approve it. (LOL). With that being said, while being in the "outpatient center" (the bar) a customer played the song " Caught Up" by Usher. " I'm so caught up. Got me feelin it... Caught Up... Got me loosing control"... Y'all remember that? Hot fiyah right??. As Im doing my best booty pop move and singing the lyrics I thought about being caught up in this whole bar scene. Reminding myself that I am just here to make a few extra bucks not make new friends for entertain the thoughts of new relationships. Fast forward.... A middle aged woman steps looks around and leaves. That happens a lot. People stop in to see where the action is. An hour later a handsome older gentleman steps in . Nothing major... just nice looking and very pleasant. He orders wine and over time we began to talk. He tells me about his family... how he loves his grandchildren... so on and so forth. Maybe an hour later he tells me he enjoyed his time with me and he finds me very attractive. I smile and say thank you. He continues his advances and explains that as an older , experienced man he knows what he wants and goes after what or whomever it may be and that he would love to travel the world with me. Money is not an issue and we could have separate accomodations. ( Im thinking here we go but he is kinda cute and everything he's saying sure sounds good, I gotta man, you can't take anyone serious that you meet in a bar but I would love to go to Turks and Caicos in the spring. Welp, he calls his travel agent regarding dates and prices. In the middle of obtaining rates and availability a woman walks (same woman as before) in the bar and comes directly to me. Not unusual I am the only staff onsite. She asked who I was. I said I work here can I help you. She looks me over and turns away. My new friend never took his eyes off of me. The woman then asks him " what are you doing" he never responds. She then says I need the keys. He went in his pocket gave her the keys and still never took his eyes off of me. Again she asked him " what are you doing"? He responded abrubtly " what do you want?". I am in shock now because I know I;m a little slow (maybe alot slow) but obviously they new each other. She storms out.... I say to him do you know her??? Is that your wife?? She could have attacked me! He jumps out of his seat goes outside and as I watch the survelliance screens I see a full blown heated exchange between the two of them. Eventually they both left and I never saw either of them again. Wow. I guess I won't be going to Turks and Caicos in the spring... at least with him. Did that just happen? That could have gone way left! In that brief moment, even though I knew better I allowed myself to be what? Caught up! LOL.
