girl crush

my husband had a shameless schoolboy crush on the coffee girl at the shop around the corner from us. he would bring our daughters there on weekends to get coffee (nevermind that we had just made a huge pot at home). the thing was, if his coffee girl crush was working that day, he would get all flustered and could say nothing more than his order. he couldn't even muster up a hey, good morning. how are you? or, can you believe this weather we're having? he'd clam up and just give his order, get his coffee and leave.

that coffee girl is gone now. or maybe she has a different shift, i don't know. but there's a new girl. she has pretty eyes, cute sassy hair and a nice smile. and when my husband and i went in this morning to get coffee after our ride (nevermind that we had a huge pot at home); i placed our order and coffee girl was chatty and cute and all smiles and friendliness, sunshine & light. i was somewhat mesmerized by the pretty eyes and cute aura of sunshine and light (and i don't usually go for cute, sunshine and light or girls). nevertheless, as i paid for our coffees, i had to stop myself from blurting out - you're so pretty.

clearly, it's not my husband who has a crush on the coffee shop girl this time.

We all love a cute barista so don't feel bad.
Welcome back to the Thursday night ride and the community of mocking tri-geeks. Michael and Marcia have what we call "road bikes" which is why they don't get slandered by such comments. Any evasive manuever to avoid aero-bar-boy was justified, especially if he had headphones on. That's dangerous and rude(are we that dull that music is that much better?...okay, I am but really)
And happy anniversary, I've been away.
BS

Cute. My husband had the same crush thing with our college-aged neighbor across the street. He would get all smiley whenever he stopped to chat with her. Talking ear to ear. I would just roll my eyes. Don't worry I have a beauty crush on the girl at my starbucks...Asian, beautiful face, flawless skin, long black hair, perfect white teeth, perfect body. She must have guys lining up..so unfair that one person gets the whole package!

Next time, tell her. It would probably make her day! Besides, you might get a free coffee out of the deal! :)

That makes me giggle. Both your hubby's crush and your girl crush. I get those too.

HA HA - leave it to you to put this into words. I think we all have them to some degree but would probably never admit it. If I had to guess I would think that you are probably the subject of a girl crush or two. I'm just sayin.

Everytime I see a girl who has good legs I want to tell her. I always look at hot muscly women....
