I'm not sure if I'm flattered or shattered. I work in an industry that requires that we have drivers with ADL's. These guys drive our bulk and side load trucks delivering our much needed and much loved product to our customers, who then provide it to the end consumer. Anyway, that is why I was talking to one of the drivers in the parking lot yesterday afternoon. Important to note that his age is approximately late 20's, maybe early 30's.
We were discussing the movie crew that was in my home town the day before, filming a movie starring Orlando Bloom, Kirstin Dunst, and Susan Sarandon. (I kid you not, movie directors and producers have discovered the beauty of central Kentucky.)
I said something to the effect of, "I bet you would have liked to have gotten out of the truck and met Kristin?" and he replied, "Oh no. I would much rather have met Susan Saharan." Then he gave me THAT LOOK, lowering his eye lids and his voice, "I prefer older women."
At first I thought, "That little bugger....calling me an 'older woman"!! I am not an older woman!!!!!!" Then I realized he was trying to flirt with me! And paying me a compliment.
When did I become an "older woman". In my mind I am still that girl who blushes at such a compliments. One who feels like she is 16 when around an attractive man!
Oh my gosh......this is serious. When did this happen?
