I hate to let you boys down...

I am about to post something that I think will be a bit of a let down to two young men out there somewhere.

To the two young men in the Army uniforms, driving a silver late model sedan around town, Fellas, I hate to break it to you, but I was not flirting with you today. No. I wasn't. In fact, I didn't even notice you until you rolled your windows down to say something to me.

Yes, I was smiling, laughing, and pointing in your direction. I see how you could have thought that I was saying something to you, or talking about you. However, what you may not have noticed is that I was actually smiling laughing and talking to two young ladies in car seats behind me. I know, my back windows are tinted pretty dark, and the girls can be hard to see. So, let me assure you, that they were there. Seeing as how I do not make a habit of flirting with men in cars I pass, not anymore, and I would never do anything like that with my children in the car, then you can believe that even if you were incredibly cute, and I don't know because I really didn't notice, I wouldn't make note of it with the girls present.

What you probably also failed to notice, is that there just happened to be a giant inflatable Sponge Bob Square Pants seated on top the of the Burger King at that red light we were stopped at. You probably didn't notice because it was just over your shoulders, where I was pointing. You may not have noticed, but my two year old daughter, who doesn't even watch the show, did. She thought it was hilarious, and wanted to know why Sponge Bob was a) so big, and b) sitting on Burger King. We happened to be have a very joyful conversation.

So, again, I know this is going to really break your hearts (haha, just trying to pump my own ego up a bit, there)but, that more than a little fluffy 29ish year old womyn, with the crazy hair, and the black car that hasn't been washed in forever, who was probably more than a little tired looking, really wasn't trying to get your attention. She didn't think you were cute stuff in your uniforms, nor did she want to talk to you all.

She was, however, truly enjoying the moments in life where your children just make you smile and laugh. I am glad, though, that you may have gotten some enjoyment out of that moment as well, even if it were for the wrong reasons.
I hope you guys had a fantastic rest of your day, and thank you for all you do for our country.
