looking out for Alf Mushpie
Ok, so the personal ad is doing pretty damn good for the first week.
ok, one sec, gotta go off on a tangent for a sec...
I'm having a convo with Susie right now about what to get her for her birthday, it's really funny:
Me: what do you need?
I'm threatening to buy her a vibrator if she doesn't give me a clue.
Ok ok, back to boys. First guy who responded was J.R. I've talked to him just a wee bit on the phone. He's a very nice man, he rescues animals, and currently has two dogs. He lives in Spring Green, but he works in Madison. I set up a date with him on Friday, the 9th.
Ok, then there's the mystery man from Rockford. He didn't leave his name, but he said some awesome stuff. He's a Capricorn too, and born under the Dog, which probably means 1982, so he'd be 22/23. Again, there's an issue of distance, but he seems to have a real interest in spirituality and art, and he loves Elvis!!! So real possibilities there.
Today, just a few hours ago, I stopped at a coffee shop to fiddle with an art project. When this adorable sk8er boy came by the window. He was talking to friends, and I kept looking at him, and he kept noticing. Then he came inside, and sat in a chair right across from me.
I'm a total chicken, I'm a huge flirt, but not good with the follow through...thank gawd he was. He asked me what I was doing. That led into a facinating discussion about Dadaism, and his connections with these various art movements. He's very intelligent, as well as beautiful.
I felt comfortable with him. He's very very sexy, but I didn't get drooly, I was surprised. Like my brain was more arroused...oddness.
Where is my mind! His name is very interesting, he wrote it out, so forgive me if I'm typing this wrong, Liaiz-n, it's pronounced "zon", or I'm sure that's what he tells ppl to keep it simple.
I have years of my childhood dreading my last name, because ppl for the most part assumed it was "lucy" or "louse", I had to remind them, it's "loose", think "footloose".Anywho, I gave him a Tarot reading, which turned out well, I hope. He asked very good questions, really helped me to find the information he needed to hear.
Even more awesome, a friend of his stopped by, Jessica, she was wearing a vintage Reeces PB Cups shirt. I gave her a reading too, which felt wonderful. I've been out of the business for so long, I missed offering guidence to others.
I got both their email addies, so hopefully we can all stay in touch!
The mysterious boy from Rockford may call tonight, so I better get going.
In case you were wondering, Alf Mushpie is the name of a woman whom Opus met while running the Personals desk at the Bloom County Picyune. She was his first love, this was long before Lola Granola.
