"Hi, Thanks for stopping by. I'm Ethan." After shaking my hand, Ethan looks to his left then right. "Are you sure you want to interview me about...women?"
"Follow me. I'm packing."
We go into his bedroom. A typical male one--except obsessively neat. Shirts are color coded. Jeans folded over hangars. And his shoes are in boxes on shelves.
"Women." He tosses a shirt in his bag. "I dunno. I have the hardest time meeting them...dating them...whatever. Best to settle for friendship only like the one I have with Diana, the company's new designer. We've gone to lunch, traded movies, etc. Perfect."
"Diana sounds nice."
"She's cool. A real woman."
"A real woman is one who will eat at any ol' burger dive. Likes ordinary cars." He presses white and black socks in a special zipper pouch for each color. "We're going to the web designer's convention in Colorado Springs."
"I hear the hotel's swanky."
"Got high marks from the office receptionist who went there on her honeymoon."
"So why not ask Diana on a date?"
"I wouldn't mind having a fling with Diana." He walked over to the mirror and scrubbed his chin. "Guess I should shave. She said my skin feels sexy smooth afterwards. You know, one girl told me I'm anal. Me?"
I nodded to the closet. "It's pretty organized in there."
"I can grab stuff faster this way. Be honest--is it the geeky glasses? I can't see without them."
I tilted my head and studied him. Ethan would be a good person to feature in my story about Guys and Geeks and Girls. "I'd say no."
His arms flung wide. "Then what is it? I'm tall, workout. Diana says I have an admirable six pak."
He zipped the suitcase shut and rolled it to the front door. "I really like it when she gives me a goodnight hug. And a part of me would like something more. I wonder... What if I tell her my theory about love?"
Thanks for blogging with me. Enjoy the Hero's Blog Hop
