I get hit on more now that I'm married.
shirt, pants, bag: thrifted, shoes: target
Since I've been married, I've had a handful of weird experiences with the opposite sex. Funny thing, they ALL have complimented me on my clothing. Here are two of the stories:
I'm at work. I'm on the third floor of the Smith building changing some room numbers and names on the directory board. The boy walks by, touches my arm, and says: "I REALLY like your pants." ( I was wearing yellow ones) I say: "Hey thanks." He walks away. He walks down the stairs ( I know this because I can hear him on the phone) and I think that this encounter is over. But no. He walks back up the stairs!! Seriously? Here is what happens next.
boy: "I just really wanted to tell you I like your pants. I just wanted to meet you. I'm _____."
me: "Thanks. I'm Katherine."
boy: "What are you doing?"
me: "I work for the College of Business and Communication. We change the directory boards every semester."
boy: "Oh cool! Well, I just really wanted to meet you. Have a good day!"
I was trying to keep it as short as possible. Jeeeez, I cannot believe he walked back up the stairs to tell me once again he liked my pants.
I get out of class and I'm walking down the stairs. Random boy at the end of the stairs says...
boy: "I really like your dress."
boy: "What color would you call that? Turquoise?"
me: "Uhh, I think it's more of a mint."
boy: "Oh. Well it's a really good color on you."
me: "Well thanks."
boy: "You're welcome. Have a great day!"
me: "You too."
Ha, those two are my favorite. I've also had a 8 year tell me he likes my shoes. And another boy tell me he likes my dress. Maybe I'm just being cocky and thinking that they're hitting on me, but it sure does make for a good laugh.
