Lately, I have been contemplating some strange crushes.
Well, I got this call at late Saturday night. I answered even though it was a strange number which I have never seen before. Maybe it's an important call, I always think so.
"Weih..."An older man's voice. "Um...Is this beautiful teacher Hsu?! This is me, you know, the herb tea boss...."
Oh...Okay, but why did you call me at the midnight?
"You know? I am just thinking about you...in fact, I have been thinking about you a lot lately" You must be joking me here...I know you are always flirty with me...but...
"Yeah, I just thought that I'd let you know that I've known and really liked you for 6 years. And I'd really like you to know that I miss you today. So you think I have a chance?"
Huh?? Shit, he's not kidding!"
"So who's that American guy who sometimes comes here with you? Is he your boyfriend? Are you guys living together?"
After a few minutes, I realized that things were getting weird. So I stopped laughing, and I stopped thinking that he's just joking around.
"So...Um...Mr. Jang. Thank you, I'm flattered. Really. But about your question? I'm not available anymore. I am in a firm relationship now, and he's not American, we are not just having some fun...You know?"
"Oh, I see. But I have practiced some songs with my guitar for you. Like this one I learn this afternoon called 'True Love'...."
O M G! I don't remember how was the phone call ended. I hope I didn't offend him by saying something stupid (I might). Anyway, I do know I'm gonna miss that herb drink for a long time. What a shame cuz he makes the best hot "Sian Tsao" in town. Yeah, so I guess I've attracted some older guys lately for some unknown reasons, including some professors, some other teachers, and parents. All these just leave me wondering: "Hello, what are you thinking?"
Oh, I am definitely flattered, Jen. I wish there were more been-around-the-block(unmarried)men who like me than the ones that are married. Haha...But I just don't find older men all that attractive though! You? :P
Hahaha. Iris, It's definitely a good idea to stay away from them if they're married. =D
Well, everyone has a preference. :-) I prefer older men. I mean, if they look after themselves, they don't necessarily have to look too old. They're just more interesting - you know, their experiences in life... Like the cliche goes, an aged bottle of wine has a lot of depth.
Haahhaha. But I wouldn't mind someone as old as Jon Stewart! He looks old, though. But I wouldn't mind.
I am not really interested in younger guys. It's just the maturity thing and they know what they want so you don't go around in circles.
I haven't so far, met a younger guy I could learn a lot from. So it's basically a case of not wanting to get bored within 10 minutes, that's all. =D
