Define: disconcerted

Every time I see him across the bar, my breath stops. He is the most beautiful boy I have ever seen.

He is Valdosta's doppelganger. The same 5'8" stature. The same beard. The same blue eyes. The first few times I saw him, I was convinced it actually was Valdosta. Except he's Valdosta minus 20 or 30 pounds. He is beautiful.

I don't have the guts to speak to him because if I ever opened my mouth, I'm pretty sure "You are the most beautiful boy I have ever seen" would come tumbling out. But to be honest, I'm not sure if I ever would have noticed him had I not had the relationship with Valdosta that I did. I fully realize that I'm attracted to boys that look like him in order to recapture what I once felt. 

When we played against his kickball team, I pointed him out to Lawyered's fiancée. "That right there is a beautiful boy," I said.

"Which one?" she asked, craning her neck to look at the outfield.

"The one with the calf tattoo."

"Um, Sarah. You must have really bad eyes. That isn't a tattoo. It looks like a large scab."

"Or maybe its his AIDS lesion," I cracked.

Except my voice tends to carry. And he looked over to us on the sideline. The beautiful boy had heard me joke about him having AIDS.  Lawyered's fiancée doubled over laughing.

So that happened.

I think you should make some kind of move on this guy, pronto. A cheesy wink, or the gangsta head nod, that's my speciality. Then ask about his leg scabies.

As the wise Wayne Gretzky once said, "You miss 100% of the shots you never take."

The prosecution rests.

When I was in college, I saw the most beautiful man I had ever seen around campus constantly. After five years, I got up the nerve to talk to him. We've been married for a year.

It's worth taking the risk. You never know what might happen!

Don't be a wimp. Do it.

jo said...

i'm with everyone else... talk to him, maybe he has a sense of humor. if not, then he certainly isn't for you anyway.

What a disappointment this turned out to be. But I happen to think your comment was completely hysterical!
