okay, so i ran up to the UPS store near the office yesterday to have a package overnighted (it was too late to call for a pickup).  i walk in and briefly discussed with the gentleman behind the counter what i needed to do to overnight the package.  he hands me a form to fill out, which i immediately start doing…  as i’m bent over the paper diligently writing, he asks –


“is that your natural color of eyes?”


the reply, “yep” caught on my tongue as i thought, did he just say EYES?  is that my natural color of… EYES?  i mean, i’m used to people asking if that is my natural color of HAIR – being a redhead and all, but… eyes!? 


“yep” the reply made it’s way out as i thought, ‘yes, i’m a natural blue…’  


then it occured to me that red hair and blue eyes aren’t the most common combination – usually it’s red hair and green eyes.  ooooohhhhh!  silly me. 


“well, they’re very pretty, if you don’t mind me saying so,” he returned.


“oh, thank you” i grinned down at the form, highly amused by the whole interchange. 


haha!  never been asked that question before…  my eyes must have looked unusually bright yesterday afternoon!

  1. yeah, and the sad thing was, i was like, “oh, he’s not hitting on me.  he’s just being nice.” b/c he really was saying it in a polite way, not in a flirty way.  then i got home and told my cousin and she was like, “oh he was totally hitting on you!” which i finally accepted after realizing that later on in the conversation he had made a comment about not minding me keeping him company in the empty UPS store…  ::sigh::  and they say innocence is bliss… 

  2. Hey hey, nothin’ wrong with getting a good compliment here and there.  I didn’t know your eyes were blue!  A combination of that and red is pretty cool!  I’m just boring ol’ brown and brown.

  3. Dear Andrea,
    Very nice, fellow red-haired and blue-eyed human!
    There are guys out there who compliment ladies and are glad they’re around without hitting on them.  Don’t give him motives he may not have – maybe he was just trying to brighten your day, even if he did cross the line a little.
    Sincerely,
    Thomas

  4. thanks, thomas.  that was my original thought.  i didn’t think he was hitting on me at all.  but my cousin (who wasn’t there, btw) insisted that he was…  so maybe he wasn’t.  i’d rather think that he wasn’t.
