How was I supposed to answer??

New Years was, interesting. Opted for the friend in Riverside. There was one (one) single man there (Eddie doesn't count, he's like my brother). He was in his 40's and really not my type. I'm going to stop the story right here and put out the disclaimer that I had a lot to drink. I intended to only have a little, but I don't like to be a party pooper and so when the drinking game called for shots, I had shots. (back to the story) Apparently, I fell for the oldest trick in the book when 40 year old asked if he could stand with me and kiss me at midnight. I was thinking a kiss along the lines of on the cheek or maybe quick peck on the mouth at most. I was not expecting 40 year old to stick his tounge in my mouth. And Me, being drunk and surprised, kissed back. When I realized what I was doing, I quickly removed myself from the situation at hand, and "oh my! there's something on the floor I need to pick up right now" (blah, blah, eew) and when I stood up, the conversation went like this:

40yrold: wow you're a great kisser, where did you learn to kiss like that?

Me: Uh, lots of practice?? (eew, EEW)

Thankfully, Eddie happened by at that moment, and I was able to cleanse myself by kissing his cheek, then W and twin happened by and they helped the process by planting one on my smacker, but I'm still icked out despite telling myself that I behaved no worse that a night in TJ (actually better because I didn't freak with anyone) .

Meanwhile, I woke up with a headache and neck ache, which I attributed to sleeping on the floor, but realized last night that it was from head banging to AC/DC. oops. oh well, it's feeling much better today.

Also, while I don't really make resolutions, I have resolved to try to do the following:

Stop thinking of myself in negative, depressing terms such as "Spinster" and "Old Maid" and start thinking of myself as a highly eligeable bachelorette. I mean, men can be eligeable bachelors and it's a good thing (I remember JFK Jr being referred to as this before he married). In fact it makes them more desireable, right? So I think I deserve better than to think I am not desireable. and I encourage all my single lady friends to see themselves the same way. We and not refuse, we are not wasted, we just haven't chosen which of many men we want to grace with our permenant presence. So there.

I love your blog, and I think you are definately underrating yourself.

Sounds like a fun party!! :) And you are TOTALLY eligible...the only reason you are single is because no man has been good enough for you yet. I, for one, totally respect that you haven't "settled." You shouldn't...you deserve better...the BEST, in fact! Someday your Mark darcy will appear...Mmmmmmmmmmm. ;)

Speaking as a just-over-40-year-old-male, I apologize on behalf of all of us for that guy's inexcusable behaviour.

I happen to be a 40-year old male as well. For me, it is the thought of where his tongue had been, not how old it was.

"Thankfully, Eddie happened by at that moment, and I was able to cleanse myself by kissing his cheek, then W "
-I had no idea your were that close to the president.

The only solution is to gargle with lysol. That will kill 99.9% of the germs that the 40+ tongue had on it.

I don't blame the guy that much. You were drunk.

Now you see how great it is to be a tea-totaller. I don't have to swallow the tongue of anyone but my wife, who at 51 is still a great kisser.

gdklme: the thought of all young women who get frenched by drunk men old enough to be their father

Sensei: He wasn't quite old enough to be my father, unless he had me when he was in High School. and EEW EEW EEW, yes I thought about that, I am trying to FORGET that, EEW. No, I am not that close to the president. I'm speaking of a different W. As far as I know Dubya doesn't have a twin.

Rich: I know not all over 40's are looking to score some late 20's liplock. Ususally I stay spber enough to avoid this sort of thing. But thank you for the apology, I'm sure you would never pull that sort of trick.

Jen: Mmm. Colin Firth. Maybe if HE had tricked me into a smooch, I wouldn't be so upset. And you're right. I'm not going to settle.

Gary: I like yours too. I read it every day.
