The Wacky Duck

Humph. What is it with guys? You think you've got it figured out and then, plop! something drops in front of you and what are you suppose to do? It's not that dramatic, it's more confusing than anything else. Remember the guy I mentioned in my post about letting go? We had been friends for ages and then he kissed me (I didn't make the move) and things kinda shifted. He was into it for awhile and then nothing. Well, a few months ago I asked him if he wanted to explore into whatever we were doing. I didn't say I wanted to be his girlfriend, I didn't ask to spend more time with him, I didn't start talking about china patterns. I simply asked, " you wanna explore this thing we've got?" (sounds like we both had the pox or something, doesn't it?). His response? The typical male non-response. "I like you, you're totally cool, I have fun with you, blah blah blah. I'm not ready for a relationship, I've got too much on my plate, it's not you, it's me". Pooperhead! A simple, "I like you but this is as far as it goes for me" would have been sufficient...and less ego damaging. When a guy can't come up with an original thought and has to resort to trite phrases, well, to me, that shows I'm not worth the effort. At least with the direct route, I would know he tried and it wasn't working for him. Fine. You still lose but thanks for the honesty. Because, guys, when you say those stupid always said phrases - we KNOW it IS about us, and you DON'T want to have a relationship with ME.

Anyway, Dumbass, as I affectionately call him, sent me a package today (I could do the innuendo thing but why bother?) and I couldn't figure out why. It's not my birthday, I didn't ask for anything, I didn't talk about any purse I really, really, had to have. Imagine my surprise when I pulled out a Hallmark Wacky Doodle Dandy Duck, an Easter present!! Wacky Duck dances to the Chicken Dance when you press his leg. He flaps his wings, he sings...faster and faster in a Wacky Doodle Ducky Dance!! And I got an Easter card, too!! What a sweet thing to do, really. I like that he showed he was thinking of me (even though he works 16 hour days and remembered to buy this for me while he was doing whatever he was doing in Hallmark), I like that he took the time to go to the Post Office, stand in line and mail this to me (I don't know what else he was mailing), I'm happy he thought I would get a laugh out of this - because I do, it's soooo me!!

Humph. None of my other guy friends sent me an Easter present. Hell, I didn't even get an Easter card from most of my girlfriends. One of my girlfriends asked if we were doing "our thing" again. "No", I said. "We're just friends." She said, "That's not really something a guy friend would do, you know." Whatever. I'm not going to over analyze my Wacky Doodle Dandy Duck. But I gotta say it. Why is it sometimes so clear to everyone else but the guy doing the driving? Dumbass.

Men are freaking weird. . .if I had any insight what so ever I wouldn't be in my predicament! I had "Mr. I Need to Take a Break" taking me out for Easter breakfast. . .talk about mixed signals.
