Please tell me if I sound crazy or not...

I am not desperate. I think this is the alignment of some weird planets and moons and shit. And of some weird space in my head.

Last week I ordered pizza. And I had the greatest experience with the guy on the phone who was taking my order. He kept me on the phone for 10 minutes just chatting. He even made sure to find out that I was single and to let me know he was the same. I know it sounds completely absurd to say we "clicked" while only ordering food, but I learned his name, he's a widower, raised his daughter alone who got a $14,000 college scholarship to my alma mater, he's built like a fuzzy teddy bear, he thought I was brave to raise a son alone, I had a pretty voice, we agreed teenagers eat a LOT, and when his daughter got her period the first time and he had to make a "purchase" for her, he also gave her 3 bags of chocolate. Now if we can exchange that sort of information while I was ordering a damn pizza, then...

When I got there to pick up my order, he was with someone else and was waving at me and giving me the "hang on a sec" finger but I was at the drive-thru and he couldn't get to me. He told the girl who was waiting on me to tell me hi, it was nice to meet me and that he had my phone number from my order. She giggled and said "Oh Sam is sooooo NICE!"

Here's the thing- he DIDN'T have my number. I realized when I hung up from the order call while I was on my way, that we shot the shit about stuff and I never left my number and hoped it was one of those times they fixed the food without doing a call back verification. I also know it doesn't come up automatically because if I use my cell phone that feature doesn't work here since I'm on Verizon's stupid extended plan. And.... I asked someone who worked there and my number isn't stored or anything in a "system."

XRay Girl said it sounded like I had a better 10 minute conversation with the pizza guy than my date with the Sam last weekend, and she's right about that. She also suggested I go in and see if he's working and if we can chat for a minute (or ten) see if we click again and then MAKE SURE I give him my number if we do.

Am I being an adventuresome, carefree risk take or an idiot?

Pizza does sound good about now...

An aside: anytime AlaskaSam makes a venture toward my life, interested men automatically start popping up. Or men who seem like they could sort of me interested. Just an observation...

Oh go back and talk to him. It cannot hurt! He is probably susposed to take the number so whe you talked too much he forgot he didn't! If the people working with him like him go for it. It can't hurt. You will never know unless you try!
Hugs, Lisa

TaDa said...

Maggie... LOL

May I add my two cents even though I hardly know you.... "go for it you only live once" However, proceed with caution.. by all means give him your number but if you decide to hook up take your own car.. for safety til you know him just a bit better...

Can't wait to hear...

(Maggie - I didn't catch your age... I am thinking around my age as we have kids the same age)

Cheryl said...

That's always the way! It's also the things you don;'t go for which you regret later, so take advantage of it tout de suite!

Good luck!

Maggie said...

Lisa- see, i like that advice!

TaDa- thanks for the safety tip; I think that's very sound. Not only is it good for me to be safe, but it means I have my own car to escape if it's a bad date, should it be a date.

And I'm 38 and almost 6 months. (there's a running joke here on my blog about me counting my age with months...)

And even though you don't know me well (yet!bwahahahahaha) feel free to comment away. Hang around here and you'll know me more than you want to know.

Cheryl- okay, that's a good attitude! thank you!

Anna said...

I say go for it :-) Order pizza go chat with him :-) you never know unless you give it a whirl, right? and no harm done!

Curley said...

I say, go to pizza place, see what happens. Take a friend,(I'm willing). If you end up with a date. it can't be any worse than the last date. At least you would have broken your once a year streak. And yes drive your own car if you date. Never miss an opportunity.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I was going to comment on your Pink Saturday but your Sunday post was more fun! I agree with everyone else. Go for it but stay safe! Enjoy the pizza!

Nothing wrong with a little conversation. I say order the pizza and go in this time to pick it up. You just never know what could happen, and you'll always regret a missed opportunity if you do not.

Maggie said...

Anna and Curley- okay- I'll go and see what happens. I'm tempted to call first and make sure he's there so I don't have to eat Pizza Hut 3 or 4 times a week! haha! And Curley, I'll call and let you know if we need to go or if I can do it as carry out.

Tammy- thanks for commenting and visiting. And I appreciate you commenting today instead! I appreciate the advice. Come back so you can see what happened- haha!

Carmelina- I'm glad you explained about the 'bob a trick' part because I was thinking it was a it kinky!

Evil P- I would have a huge case of the 'what ifs' for sure if i didn't go- you know me too well!

The tribe has spoken- I guess Pizza for dinner one night this week it is!

Maggie said...

Sam/P- you think coupons will help me get a date?

Shirl- thanks for coming on over... welcome to my blog outside of Pink Saturdays- LOL! Thanks for the advice and for commenting! Come back again soon!

Bragger said...

Carpe diem, baby!

Curley said...

At least you would know that pizzaSam had been on a date before since he has kids.

Wiley said...

I could make very many very wrong comments about pepperoni here, but I won't...

You're killing me here.

You should so go back and see him though. I can just imagine him writing 'call me' on a pizza for you with ingredients ;)
