Something kind of funny happened last night at work, well funny to me and I had a huge giggle inside my head.
When I was in highschool I was extremely shy, self-conscious, and awkward with low self-esteem. If a boy ever looked my way (which wasn't often) I'd shrink and turn my back. It's no great wonder I was the invisible wall flower. If I could turn back the clocks I would change that about me when I was younger. Younger, including the years well into my 20's, which is way beyond highschool.
Last night I worked in the ICU and I spotted this absolutely stunning speciman of a young buck resident. Let me tell you this: I am not one of those women who normally checks out every man up and down, in fact, on a whole, I don't find most men all that attractive. (And YES! I do find Greg incredibly handsome, and kind, and a whole bunch of other good things) Last night I found myself OOGLING. This young resident might have been 25, maybe 27 at a push, but OMG he was Hhhhawt! I can not even begin compare him to any actor, or model because honestly, he's way better. Tall, dark hair, hadn't shaved in at least 2 days, turquoise eyes and dark lashes...
So, I'm reading my patient's chart, minding my own business, and this hotty doctor stops by my desk to make sure everything is ok. He introduces himself as Shane and I immediately am transported back into time and turn into my 17 yr old self. I am aloof, can't maintain eye contact, and mumble 'Hi. I'm Ramomum." I look and feel like an ass. He literally backed away! No kidding. He backed away... and now he thinks my name is Ramomum.
He left, and I could have thumped myself in the forehead because I immediately realized how I must have come across. OK, let's get this straight, I am 42, old enough to be his mother for christsake! I am still a dork.
Anyway, a little while later I found myself covering a patient who needed to be intubated and Hotty was in the room too. The patient was on isolation precautions and things were a little tense. I was busy pushing meds, hanging blood, doing my professional nursing things, and being professional. When everything had quieted down Hotty and I and sedated patient where in the room alone. I was sweating and sucking air through my mask, when Hotty turns to me and says: You have the most beautiful eyes!
Bahahaha!!! I didn't know what to say except 'Oh, thanks!' But that immediately broke the ice and I became 42 again, although I didn't tell him that. But I did manage to worm into the conversation that I was married, lived in the suburbs, had a dog and two cats before I made myself shut up.
I am quite sure he is crushed.
Because Ramomum is quite a catch. (Tee-hee!)

Ramona and Ramomum ARE quite the catch!! I loved this post..I think most of us have had those moments when we just want to hit our heads against the wall ..and repeat..I'M AN IDIOT!!...

I've had this happen to me too, somehow a gorgeous man makes things happen inside our brains that do nothing for our vocabulary or our social skills. Shane sounds like another reason to look forward to going to work though!

LOL. I totally needed to laugh this morning.

And I have to agree with Dr. McDreamy. You do have beautiful eyes!

What, you didn't ever see "The Graduate"? You don't know how hot "older women" are? I think Dr. McHotty is lusting after you --respectfully, professionally, and with no intention of acting on it -- but lusting, nonetheless. At the ripe old age of 62, I can assure you that women are at their most beautiful in their 40's. (I know, I was there.) So strut your stuff, Ramomum .. um, I mean...

Well much congrats on that! I swear every woman, married or not, deserves to be hit on occasionally. And by a GORGEOUS, yummy, youngin like that. mmmmm. And you know what? If you WEREN'T married, he's be the PERFECT age for you. You know, 'cause they say women should go for younger guys because, um, well you know, they're matched as far as s*xual desire. You think about THAT the next time you see that boy! hehehe.

You're not alone, that is the type of thing I cna revert to as well. On occassions like that I can be found somewhere afterwards banging my head against the wall!

What a great compliment from Dr Hotty though :)
