The Human Touch...

Hmmm... Are you as surprised as I have been over recent incidents in my life?

If you haven't yet read recent entries in Life with Lynnie (LwL), you may want to do so.  You're in for a shock!  Well, after all, if I was shocked, why wouldn't you be?!

Of course, I am referring to the fact that while enjoying time with a friend who now lives out in western Canada, along with some other friends, a fellow I didn't know came and asked me to dance. 

Okay, some of you might wonder why that was shocking.  First, let me say that any time I have ever been at Karaoke, I have never, ever seen anyone dancing!  But mostly, I was shocked that anyone would ask me to dance. 

From the looks on the faces of others in our group, including my daughter, they were as shocked as I was!

In any case, as you would know if you read previous LwL entries, you'll know that I did dance.  Not once, but three (3) times with this man.

A friend asked me if this fellow asked me for my phone number; I replied that he had not.  He did however, ask me if I would like to attend the Halloween party at this same location.  I replied I would not attend.

To be honest, if I fell over this man or bumped into him on the street, I wouldn't probably even know it.  I can't even tell you what he looked like.  My mind went blank, being so shocked.

What I did notice was that when we danced, I thought I would feel awkward, because while seated, I had been feeling heartbroken and quite lonely again, about Gordon being dead.  Instead, I found that it felt good touching and being touched by another human being.

While I was up dancing, there was stuff happening around our table.

A female friend of the fellow I was dancing with came over to our table and was talking with my friends.  Other people came over.

There is more to be said about this, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.  Please stay tuned.  I'm sure you'll find it very surprising!


Until next time...
