I know, it sounds kind of convoluted, it did to me too, but as it was over the long weekend, I said fine.
And then last week, as my cold was starting to set in, my Mom called and let me know that apparently this lady's current neighbour would be joining us, and her son, who was visiting from a province far far away.
"So only dress as cute as you want to for someone who's visiting from Ontario" she said.
*sigh* (a sigh only the single daughters can understand)
So on Sunday, my cold and I went over to this lady's house, not really knowing why I was there other than to be polite and because I'd been asked.
And you guys? I had a blast.
My parents are super bright, witty people with strong personalities and I got to see my parents get teased and I roared with laughter every time it happened. It's such a rare sight for me to see my parents with their peers now that I'm an adult and I really enjoyed it. Plus these two ladies were hilarious and all in all I had a great time listening to the conversation.
And yes, the visiting son was nice and friendly and right around my age and if he lived in town I'd be happy to hang out with him again.
And that was nice. It was nice to meet a nice single guy my age, even if it didn't have the possibility of a romance. It made me feel normal again, somehow. Like a reminder that there are most certainly single guys out there and some good ones to boot.
So thank you, former neighbour of my parents, for the unexpectedly fun afternoon out.
