The Appeal of Normal

Since when did Normal become so attractive?

Oh wait, I know the answer to this:

Since Creepy Skincare Product Stalker Guy, Sociopathic Alcoholic Stalker Guy, Outdoor Voice Guy, and Rock Lock Guy.

The Embryologist was fine. Normal. Fine. And I do NOT mean a lascivious "fine" as in "oh baby, you're so fine." I mean just that... fine.

And what a relief it was that he wasn't a complete and utter freak.

Do I want to see him again? I have no idea. I need to think on it a while. I'm worried that the sheer relief and novelty of spending an evening with someone non-creepy might be distorting my judgment.

I've tried to apply my usual measuring stick: "Can I see myself naked with him?"

And the answer is "No."

But yet.... he's normal.

KK called me this morning to see how the date was:

Me: He was normal. So sad when "non creepy" is such a welcome relief.
KK: So you're gonna marry him then.
Me: Oh fuck you.

What does an emrbyologist do, exactly?

C-Belle said...

Willfully taking yourself out of the "could see me naked" category, eh?

He makes babies.

That was a disconcerting conversation:

Me: So what do you do?
Him: I make babies.
Me: *inching farther away*

The opposite of Dr. Kervorkian - I get it. That's not that creepy. But does he use the word "harvest"? You don't want to be naked with a city-dweller who uses the word harvest...

C-Belle said...

What's wrong with "harvest"?

Now that I think of it, I don't think I've ever said that word aloud in conversation. But what's wrong with it?

Bartleby said...

As in harvest moon or bountiful harvest, nothing. But as in egg harvest? I wouldn't like that on a date; everything would suddenly seem sinister. Can't you find, like, a hockey player? *Tip*: maybe try blue ribbon brasserie - I heard a lot of hockey players go there (the goalies are the smartest, btw).

I prefer my men with all, or at least most of, their teeth.

Bartleby said...

What's a little cosmetic dental work compared to egg farming? The guy probably wants to date you for your yield. Sheesh!

C-Belle said...

Well, can't really blame him. I do have great eggs.

I was told that human eggs come in round and oval shapes from the IVF people. And apparently, round is better.

C-Belle said...

I agree, mrscooper. Oval is generally very suspicious.
