Dates and Skates...

Today was a real butt kicker at work as I was pretty busy from the get go. But I had a pretty good day. My start was interesting. I had breakfast at a local restaurant that I frequent. One of the waitresses (very attractive by the way) sees me and begins to flirt. I didn't think much of it because I have a pretty good sense of humor and wasn't going to take it seriously at all. Then she started talking to me about her personal life. She made it clear that she was available and hadn't um, (how can I be delicate about this) had 'intimate relations' in a while. She was really in the mood for it and the guy she was 'kind of' seeing wasn't up to the task and ignored her so she dumped him. This is where it can be difficult being a Christian. The easy way would have been to take her out and 'wine her and dine her' and after a few drinks, move in for it. But anyone who knows me can tell you... I don't like the easy way. Even with a heart that is in 23.3 million pieces from my last relationship, I couldn't bring myself to take advantage. Instead, in typical Mik fashion, I went to plan B... I was reading the newspaper and quickly opened it up to the personals and was reading the ads to her asking her which ones appealed to her. From there it was a lot easier and we proceeded to have a good time. Aside from being 'in the mood', she's actually a pretty nice person. I am no prize or anything to write home about, but I'm not ready for any kind of a romantic relationship for the forseeable future. It was that traumatic. I'm only a good friend right now to everyone and that's about all I've got to offer. I hope that's good enough.
Aside from my non-existent love life, I am the only member of my family that's not sick. I talked with a couple of my sisters and everyone is sick. I told them if they need anything to let me know but that I wasn't going to be visiting for a few days to let them recoup and so that I don't catch anything. Most of them have either the flu or some kind of respiratory crud.
Well, I suppose I ought to keep this entry short and sweet as I have to go back to work in the hospital in just a few hours (middle of the night) and work till saturday afternoon. Then I have to go to the rink and board the team bus as the Cherokee head up to Motor City to take on the Chiefs. If you are bored beyond belief, and want to listen to the game online, just go to my website on saturday night at 8pm eastern, 5pm pacific, 3pm in Hawaii, and 5am early sunday morning in Finland (hi Ophelia). I know there are more exciting things to do than to listen to some guy whose blog you read, talk about people that you don't even know, and listen to a sport that only a few of you even like. But if you want to check it out for a few minutes so you can put a voice with this otherwise anonymous person, feel free and drop me a note letting me know ya listened. Hope you all have a great weekend and I look forward to hearing from you and reading your entries as well...

Love (and other indoor sports),
Mik
