A (Ridiculous) Work in Progress

Must. Stop. The. Obsession!!!

OK, seriously - I know this is going to sound completely lame and I am OFFICIALLY a loser for saying it --- but I have SUCH a massive crush on my co-worker, it isn't even funny. OK, maybe it is a little funny.

It all started last July (or was it June?) when we inexplicably began working almost EVERY SINGLE DAY together. I'm not even kidding, it was madness - we never spent one solitary minute together outside of work, yet it was like he was always around. Normally, this would probably mean a lot of impending irritation and the discovery of all his finer flaws, but somehow, such was not the case.

Instead, it was like the more I saw of him, the more I realized what an incredibly decent person he was; Translation: HE'S SO HOT!!! How had I never seen this before? Or better question - How had all his annoying little habits suddenly, and magically, transformed into the human equivalent of catnip?? This was not good. Or was it? Seeing as my job is working in a small shop in Touristville, CA, which, up until this point, was mind-numbingly boring at best, the distraction of heart-pumping madness and butterflies in my stomach was pretty much a welcome relief!

So now, here I am, a whole 5 months later (or is it 6?) with the same stupid crush. I mean really, it's like the 5th grade all over again!! (Also like the 7th, 10th, and 13th grades all over again, but who's counting?)

I realize that the best thing I can do now is simply practice a little self-restraint and PHASE THIS SUCKER OUT; because I really am beginning to make a complete fool of myself, which is an embarrassment and a sham. And REALLY, if something was going to happen between us - It. Would. Have. Happened. Already!

So, right - self-restraint. Great. I'll let you know how that goes.

Until then,


  1. Not necessarily. Maybe he is not very good at asking girls out. I had a crush on my husband for five agonizing months before anything happened. Maybe you should make the first move. You never know what could happen....

  2. Maybe it's natures way of keeping you out of a coma? ;-) xo

  3. You're doing great so far, dude! You're funny and keep things light, which is what the world needs right now. So consider this blog your responsibility to the world at large. No pressure. :)

  4. Vanessa - thanks for the encouragment! I kind of already tried that though... sort of. I asked if he wanted to see this movie, which he might not have known was "a date," but I'm pretty sure it still counts... hmmm, I must have left that part out, LOL. woops.

    mieletcanelle - I think you might be right - it's definitely kept my heart pumping!

    Beelzebub - Thank you so much! I will take it as my mission in life :)

  5. Self restraint is an art form, if you learn it, please fill me in


Come on, tell me how you really feel!
