I’ve just about gotten over the shame of the incident with the hottie on the staircase. I’m back on the proverbial horse, ready for the next encounter… May it be less embarrassing please?!
Only 2 weeks from the Christmas party and I’ve spent the last couple of days pondering. Should I take a date? If I do, am I brave enough to wait it out until someone asks me? Am I braver still to ask someone myself?? I take strength from the fact that two of my colleagues are single too and I’m a firm believer in strength in numbers.
I get to work and who should be in the office looking bewildered and deer-in-the-headlights-y? None other than ‘Sean Penn’ from the staircase! I freak out (on the inside) and feel about as confused as he looks. What the hell is he doing here? After some mad gossiping with Jose to get the lowdown, I learn that Perry (hottie’s name is not Sean Penn after all) is an intern!
Part of me is super excited in that school girl kind of way. The other part is slightly annoyed that this potential heart throb is going to be hovering around for the next month or so making me very aware of my singleness. Could this be the most amazing twist of fate ever? The world doesn’t work that way does it?
I find out as much as I can without coming across as a stalker. Perry is 2 years younger than me (a bit of a turn off) and has been struggling to find work in journalism and is therefore totally sucking up to everyone he sees in order to try and get a real position when the internship ends. Not sure how I feel about this just yet…
