An Unexpected Meeting (PhotoStory)

It's lunchtime on Saturday afternoon.  Meg has stopped by the diner for a burger and fries.  

"You doing okay over here, dear?"  (Waitress)

"I'm doing just fine.  I'm just taking my time trying to enjoy every bite.  You guys make the best burgers."  (Meg)

Over in the corner of the diner are Halle and Brad.  Huh?  Well turns out Brad took a condo in the same building that Halle lives in.  So the post office is not the only place they have met recently.

"I'm really surprised that you asked me out to lunch."  (Brad)

"Well, I'm just doing the neighborly thing."  (Halle)

"Besides, I've been thinking.  I have a really good friend that I would like to introduce you to."  (Halle)
"Wait a minute.  I don't need help finding a date."  (Brad)

"Don't think of it as a date.  Just think of it as two new people in town, meeting, and exploring the town."  (Halle)

"Hmmm.  Let me tell you what I think.  I think you like me and this is your way of making me less available, so you won't be tempted.  How am I doing so far?"  (Brad)

"Can I get you two anything else?"  (Waitress)
"No, thank you."  (Halle)

"I am perfectly happy with my boyfriend.  I don't have any ulterior motives.  I was just trying to be helpful."  (Halle)
"I see.  So where is this boyfriend?"  (Brad)
"If you must know, he is out riding with his buddies."  (Halle)
"I see."  (Brad)

"Would you please stop saying, 'I see'."  (Halle)
"Would you rather me tell you how beautiful you are?"  (Brad)
"Definitely not.  Can you please focus?"  (Halle)

Oh goodness.  I think Halle is playing with fire.  Where the heck is Diego?

  2. I miss so much; I hope to have one weekend fire where I can catch up on your blog and other! I don't know what's going on but if Halle don't want Brad hitting on her then don't have lunch with him!

    1. Ebony - The quick and dirty is Brad is new in town. He's been at the Realtor office and the post office. He met Halle at the post office while waiting in a long line. After some conversation, he wondered if she would give him a tour of the new town. She declined because of Diego. I'm imagining they bumped into each other at the condo and realized they were neighbors.

    1. jassica - Well so far Halle hasn't done anything bad. She is just having lunch with a neighbor.

  4. I hope Halle doesn't get herself into trouble with this one. Hopefully she really is trying to just be neighborly.

    1. Alura - She does have someone to introduce him to, but I don't think he needs her help in this department.

  5. Oh, Halle! No, no, no! She never should have called him. This does not bode well and frankly, I kinda agree with his assessment that she's interested and wanted to make him unavailable.

    1. Muff - Are you saying that men and women can't be just friends? Haven't you ever invited a neighbor in for coffee? Isn't this similar? LOL!

    2. No, some men and women can be friends, but you shouldn't try to befriend someone who has been quite clear that they are interested in you romantically. She's just playing with fire.

      Me? Invite a neighbor in? Nope, never. I'd only do that if I wanted to break 'em off a little sumthin' sumthin' and I don't mean coffee bread.

  6. All I can say is: hmmm - sometimes you have to wonder why people (read dolls) do what they do. (Although when I saw your heading I was wondering if it was Melanie and Danielle meeting accidentally.)

    1. Carrickters - I think Halle may want him in her circle of friends. Can you blame her? He is quite pleasing to the eye.

  7. Hmmm ... if Halle had just brought the friend along, that might would have been a done deal. It's odious to be told that someone plans to "hook" you up. Bring the people together and see if something clicks. Sigh.

    Repeating that Diego is a good guy won't help. Would just cause her to find another reason to "meet" Brad. Sigh. Guess things will go as they will go.

    Platonic male-female friendships? Possible, yes. But is that what would happen between these two with the sparks bouncing already? I dunno ...

    1. D7ana - Maybe you are right. I'm thinking Halle wanted to give him a heads up. I think surprising two people without warning, puts them both on the defensive and they aren't comfortable. People can usually tell when they are being hooked up on the sly. I like being honest with people up front. At least then they know I am a straight shooter. None of this sly crap that goes on.

      I'm rooting for Halle. I'm hoping she can do this. It beats moving out of the condo. She's involved with Diego. She's not dead. It's kind of normal to feel attraction to others. It's just what you do with that attraction (or not do) that counts.

      Delete
    2. You're right; the sly way would be resented. Sigh. And pretty silly sometimes.

      Just being attracted to someone doesn't mean you'll automatically have a physical relationship with him/her.

      I'll wait and see how things work out ;-)

  9. Did you see me comment before that I saw your article in FDQ? I can't always tell if my posts are published and don't remember to go back and check. Anyways, how awesome was that to see my blog friend in print?

    1. pattidolls - I got a couple of congrats. I can't remember if I saw yours or not. I always check my spam folder too, to make sure no comments are lost. Thanks! I was elated at the outcome, and a little emotional over the whole thing. The picture of Rod and Danielle is their first date at the beach house where they met. Amazing how much has happened since then.

    2. Well you deserve the congrats! Did you blog about this so I can go back and read how it came about?

    3. pattidolls - Funny you asked. Today's post will elude to that very subject.

  10. pattidolls - I can't remember exactly how she got in my collection, but she hasn't been here a long time. I think I lucked up getting her for an incredible price just a few years ago.

  11. Halle and Brad would make a great couple in real life. She should steal him away from Angelina.

    1. pattidolls - When I first saw this doll, I thought of Brad Pitt. I questioned that when one of my readers said they didn't see Brad at all. I now think it was just the eyes that made me think of Brad. I want Brad and Angelina to stay together. Too many kids involved.

  13. That waitress remind me the 70's tv show "Alice"! I like her! Halle should'nt feed Brad's hopes. Some men have always a one-way street mind

    1. Sergio - "Kiss my grits!" I used to love that show Alice. You are right, she does remind me of Flo. That's her new name. Thanks.

  14. In his bachelor days my brother learned two important rules:

    1. don't doo doo where you eat (in other words don't get involved with people at work).

    2. don't doo doo where you sleep (don't get involved with neighbors).

    I guess Halle likes to live dangerously.

    1. Heather - Brad said "There's no ring on her finger. She is fair game. He may be a better match for her than the man she is with." I have to agree with him.

    1. Marta - I hope you had a wonderful vacation. I like the way you used the word complications for Halle. Don't worry. As you have seen by now, I am putting Halle back to work. She may still get into complications, but I am going to try to tire her out.
