  1. But why didn't you accept a date from the fireman or waiter? (although, I would have been rather uncomfortable with such a forward waiter….but hey! Can you help it if you're irresistable?)
    I guess what I'm asking is: Is it that there are no opportunities or that you just haven't availed yourself of some of the things that have come up?
    You're too nice to be lonely!
    God bless.

  2. Alison….just think of all the wondrful stories you will be able to tell when you are my age and an exciting life is ten responses on my blog. I'd take a swooning waiter any day….as long as he stayed at the restaurant and I went home with my hubby;o)

  3. Being wooed by an Italian waiter, being escorted by a flaming Elvis, dancing til dawn, being courted by a nice fireman???? why would you want these things to pass?

  4. I really liked this post, I can imagine your vibrant, giddy spirit, and at the same time, the thoughts and reflections at the end of the day. i have days just like this sometimes, but don't word it quite as well…

  5. Hi Alison- loved hearing about your funny nights out- why is it always the people you least want to approach you, who always do!!!
    Just thought you might want to take a look at my new very vintage inspired Ikea cushions-see photo on my blog, they might be right up your street….

  7. Flattering patrons is a known way to get a big tip, so the waiter may not have been trying to bother you, particularly. There are also a lot of good ways to shut down behavior that you don't want to deal with; create a fictitious brother and tell the man how much he reminds you of said brother, for example. You can't fault other people for being themselves; maybe question what you're doing or being that creates such situations. Become the sort of woman who attracts decent men, and, as a certain author would say, "create the life you want."
