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.
