My dear friend Vicky was gettig ready for a date one evening. She was so excited beacuse she got to really like this guy. He was cute, polite and a tradie. Three things that ticked her boxes. ” Ill sort it, ill pick you up at 7.30″. Yay she thought. Someone who also took charge. Now that’s a man. She was ready when she recieved a text ‘ Sorry, ill be five minutes late’. Well at least he texted to let her know. Gentleman this one. She said to herself. She thought she’d wait outside and admire her garden when he arrived. She got in. He looked very clean and smelt great. She was in heaven. They kissed. She had been looking forward to it all week. They finally arrived at the restaurant and they got out. As they walked she noticed something very bright down south. To her horror it was not at all what she thought it would ever be. Bright blue crocs. She stopped and looked. “What are they”? she exclaimed. He paused for a moment with the whats wrong look on his face. ” Well…they are crocs. They are so comfortable. Especially when i am in work boots all day”. His justification was admirable but not enough. Vicky looked stunned.
“Well I’m sorry i cant go out for dinner with you wearing that. Its wrong. You don’t wear crocs to dinner in a nice restaurant . You will just have to go back home and change.” Her tone allowed Tim the tool man to reassess, look down at his attire and think. ” Well, i guess so. I just never thought it was wrong. You don’t mind eating a little later do you?” He asked. Vicky was impressed. No fuss, no argument, no hussy fit behavior. ” Sure that’s no worries” she replied. So the two drove back to his place, he changed his shoes and they drove back to have their lovely dinner. When she told me that i thought well if a guy is into you what will he do to keep you? What is he willing to do for you? What will a man do for a woman?
As expected Tim the tool man threw out his crocs and never spoke of them again. He went out and bought a few fashionable pairs, much credit to the assistance of Vicky and to thank her he got her a box of her favorite macaroons. Maybe all some men need is a little guidance in some areas. Sometimes they are lost and don’t know it. That’s where women come in and show them the way. Just a little.
