The Fruit Girl?

I may have met a new candidate for the next blind date for my co-worker. If you need some background on this story, and my part as a yenta, click on the "Blind Date" category over on the left.

She was working at a local fruit and vegetable stand. I stopped to see what was fresh. By the way, I found some wonderful local blueberries and luscious ripe figs. Anyway, she is very cute, blonde, 32, and looking. Or so she told me. I honestly don't know what it is about me that inspires women to confide in me about their romantic histories and hopes, but it never fails. It may be because I am a safe flirt.

In fact, she did flirt with me. She said, as I fumbled with opening a plastic bag and she took it from me, that she was surprised I was married since I seemed to lack the "magic touch". I told her, I am chagrinned to admit, that she didn't know what she was talking about since I wasn't using my tongue to open the bag. She laughed.

I gave her my card and told her all about my co-worker. We'll see if she calls. She was cute and funny.

You don't use your Yenta powers for blogger friends? Do you????

I don't know how each date has turned out, but you, my friend are giving buddy the time of his life!

Sure, Wicked, why not?

Yeah, Annie. It is a combination of the urge to meddle with the urge to fix. Click on the link for "Blind Date" in the category list to see all the entries.

I read the entire "Blind Date" section a few weeks ago, and had been meaning to write asking for an update--it's about damn time...

Anyhoo, I'm not sure whether I should wish you and your friend good luck or bad; surely the latter would produce better stories, but for the sake of blogging civility, I'll go with the good luck. Keep us posted.

That's nice of you, David. The thing about updates for this category is that they can only come when a suitable candidate is uncovered. Right now, I'm still waiting to see if the fruit girl is going to call me for the introduction. This might just fizzle out.

Thanks RP!

I like the magic touch line. Man, I'm dying to use that on somebody!

Your friend is lucky to have you keeping an eye out for him, and I wish I could be one of the women you run into.
