A couple of weeks ago, someone commented that since Mr. RH had been initiated to the blog - I needed to pick his brain for blogging material.
I heartily agreed and then promptly forgot about it. Dude, December was a trip. I feel like Thanksgiving was last week!
Anyway, I picked his brain for some of MY most burning questions. Cause it's my blog and I'm nosy like that. A couple of questions were tweeted at me when I begged for help, but they're mostly mine.
I have added my comments below his responses in blue. Because the thought of anyone else getting the last word makes me feel cagey.
- What do you remember about the first time you remember seeing her-before you knew her?
I remember Mr. RH from last Christmas - a girl at work thought he was cute (and I agreed!) but I said he was too young and cute for me. He made me nervous because I thought he was a cool kid (unlike me, who is a dork). Dating lives and work intersect A LOT so there was always talk that someone needed to go ask him out. I was just never suggested as that person. Go figure! He was just a little too good-looking for my tastes.
- How did you first approach her – before you knew you were going to ask her out?
From the moment he said "Excuse me?", I just knew he was into me. And I am positive that I was blushing red to the roots of my hair! I, again, thought he was too good looking and a little too smooth. He caught me with my back turned so I wasn't even mentally steeling myself to run away from him. Cause if I had seen him I promise that I would have found an excuse to hide in the back room. Cause I'm a maneater like that.
- How did you ask her out for the first time?
His boss was reeeeally getting on my boss'(and my!) nerves. He SO wanted to make a date happen. I, on the other hand, was quite content (or so I lied) being single and I didn't have time to date anyway. My boss was into it, thought he was cute and that I needed to get laid. HER WORDS, not mine. We are the height of professionalism. I had a late late shift at work on the day he asked me out - the kind that requires sweatpants and a sports bra. So what did I wear? Cobalt blue (my power color), spandex pants (ba-donk-ka-donk), and a brand new push up bra. Hey, I kinda sensed things were going in a certain direction! Of course, as soon as I saw him coming (with my 4 coworkers standing a foot away STARING!), I knew I had to make this end quickly. I threw my phone number on a sticky note at him and shoved him away. Poor guy. He texted me right after and I didn't reply for days. I'm a bitch.
- What were you thinking on the first date? Any specific details that you remember?
I just remember not being very nervous considering it was my first date in 7ish years. I just felt totally at ease. Of course there were awkward moments but it really was just smooth sailing. I felt intimidated by how cute he was and how comfortable he seemed in his own skin. You can read my initial recap of our first date here.
- What is the most memorable outfit she has worn in your presence?
- What were you thinking when you first kissed her?
I knew he was nervous but he honestly seemed so CALM. I was the one freaking out so hard I was practically begging for it. It was a good first kiss, as good as it gets when Katy Perry is blasting in the background. I was thinking "shiittttt we had Mexican for dinner, he's chewing gum, and I'm not!!!" I was mortified, but at the same time wasn't worried. I knew he wouldn't freak even if I smelled like a salsa factory.
- What is the weirdest thing you’ve done together?
This isn't weird to me at all. Perhaps it's only because it's just another Friday night at a women's college after the bars? Geesh, men. They just don't know how to party! Remind me to tell you about the time I drove home 6 drunks in an ice storm at 2 am. Now that was an experience...
- What is her most annoying habit?
I think I worry the normal amount that women worry. I do think I am a bit more observant than most people so I think I freak out more than other people... but if they saw what I see, they'd freak too!
- What are her best and worst domestic attributes?
