Tonight as I sat at Starbucks I couldn't help overhearing the conversation of two people that had obviously just met for the first time.
Maybe they met online or something.
Was I eavesdropping?
No, I was trying to zone them out and finish my Saramago book, but the woman portion of them was talking SO LOUD -- it was driving me crazy.
Anyhoo -- so much of the talk revolved around what they "do".
And by "do" I mean -- for a living.
I don't do much dating.
And by "much" I mean…….. any, really.
But if I did, I think this is one of the things I would be least interested in. What the other person did during the work-time hours of the day.
I would be more interested in what they loved to do when they are not working. After all, isn't that what dating is all about?
I would be more likely to ask the person, "What is it that you love to do when you aren't working?"
Isn't that what her and I are going to be doing most of the time, if any of this "works" out?
