On my previous post I wrote about my experiences with a man in pool therapy and I promised after today's therapy that I would get back with all of you on how it went today.
I have to tell you first before I go any farther that you leave the best comments. If you have not had a chance to read the comments left on the previous post please do they are very entertaining.
Was I nervous wating on pool therapy? Very much so! Being nervous was of course silly. It was just pool therapy with a guy who happened to be not bad looking and I thought maybe he might be a little interested in me.
Today when he walked in I was not doing the funny things with my neck so I got to get a better look at him. He was not looking in my direction so no fireworks shooting to the ceiling like I thought I saw coming from him yesterday. He did swim directly over though to where I was and my heart was pitter patting like a school girl. Like yesterday he was not shy and said hello. I do remember this time telling him hello. hahaha
He then starts doing his warm ups right where I need to be doing my exercises so I move over a little trying to give him some room and then he says, "What did you have for dinner Tuesday night?" I gave him another one of those stupid kind of looks and he is smiling at me waiting on my answer and I am thinking did he say to me "What did you have for dinner Tuesday night?"
I think like a fool I repeated the question out loud. Because how many people ask you what you had for dinner two nights ago. At this point I guess he realizes I have no clue why he is asking me that and then he laughs and says Remember Tuesday we were all talking about what we were going to fix that night and I was wondering what you fixed. I sorta of laughed and said, "Oh I see, yes well let me think." I am thinking how in the heck do I know what I fixed or ate two days ago I have slept twice since then. I finally got out the words....chicken fettizzini! He looked at me like he was going to ask me to marry him then and all he replied was "Wow!"
Whats with this guy! Does he work for the Food Network? He is all about food. hahaha...I then told him I had remembered to get him the recipe for the fried chicken in the oven. It was so simple I just told him about it while I started doing some of the other exercises. He was happy I remembered it and he tried to just hang around and talk food but the instructors finally scooted him along because they could tell neither one of us was doing our exercises.
After about ten minutes or more he manages to slip back down to my end and starts asking me about why I was having to do pool therapy. I shyly told him about my fall at work and then he wanted to know where I worked. When I told him he made the regular law enforcements jokes I hear a lot. The usual things I get from people. He continues with how he admired me being in law enforcement and that ever since he was a kid that was his dream but he never fulfilled it. I told him it was probably best because a lot of people find it to stressful and they burn out easily. Then they seperate us again. I felt like I was doing something naughty the way the instructors kept moving him to the other side. lol....Just like a kid though he kept manuevering himself back to my side.
Since I had started my excersises a lot earlier than him I finished and said to the instructor loud enough for him to hear. "I think this is my last session!" I heard him say Oh No. Then one of the ladies that I know that was also taking classes ask me if it really was my last one and I said,"Yes unless they approve me for more!"
The instructor told me I was finished and that was my signal to exit the pool. I wanted to stay hidden under the water but knew that was not possible so I slowly exited for the showers. Hoping and praying that no one especially Aqua Man was not watching my exit. lol
So it was a very brief encounter with the man that has a pretty smile and a womans name on his shoulder. Chances are Workers Comp may approve me for further therapy but what are the chances he will be there on the same day and time.
I have to admit that after he got in the pool and took over my space totally I could not for the life of me remember what I was suppose to be doing and how to do it. It was like duh! At some point toward the end I was doing like maybe three out of fifteen sets and then just stood and listened to him. Waiting on the instructor to yell at us and seperate us again. I kid you not it was too funny me not knowing what I was suppose to do next and totally not caring.
I would like to say now that before I left the water he rushed over and asked for my phone number but not to be. Who knows the man could be married!
Probably best that it did not happen because I was so nervous no telling what I would of done if he had of asked me for my number. Also I have so many mixed feelings about having someone in my life. I finally got to a good point in my life where I have decided to take some creative writing classes and to start writing again so not a good time for distractions.
Will I see the Aqua Man again who knows. I seriously have my doubts. One thing I do know there is a little girl inside of all us and you never know when she might appear. I just wish there was a way to bottle that feeling for all of us to feel it more often.
Tomorrow I am meeting a real Chef that cooks at Festival Hill in Round Top! He is having his very first cooking class at Festival Hill to see how it goes. He once was the personal executive chef for Spiro Agnew when he was Vice President. I will of course share anything I learn from him with you! Pork Loin is what he will be trying to teach me...now why did I not tell Aqua Man about what I was going to do. Flustered at the wrong time!
As always I appreciate all of you and your funny and loving comments! Hopefully I can catch up with all of your sites in the next few days.
Don't forget to leave a comment on the post about the giveaway I am having by November 1st.
