I flirted with a nice lady at work a few weeks ago. She called me up and said "Let's go out." I said "When? I just got back from a Minnesota grouse hunt and I'm tired. Next up is Iowa pheasant hunting, then Kansas pheasant season. Then duck and deer season. Then it's back to winter pheasants. That ends Jan. 31st. Then I got to get down to south Texas to shoot some quail. Then racing season starts at Oaklawn. Can't miss that, see. Hey, call me in April, that's a slow month." Click.

I don't think I remember how. I was cute once, uh maybe in high school when I was a size 3. Ah, those were the days. There is one other poster who could say if I still have the ability to fllirt, but that person must remain nameless. LOL.

Well, once I was in the restroom at the airport, I was listening to one of Vivaldi's peppier tunes on my iPod. I started tapping my foot and suddenly the were men touching me from both sides.

The authorities found their bodies and thought it was was a lover's quarrel. Life is funny.

Kids get it very easy from other kids and just a touch from them can transmit the parasitic virus. It's like the chicken-pox that does not go away for years!

STD's will get you sooner or later!

There's this one STD that you can get from just touching or a towel or couch or chair or car seat!

It's called Molluscum Contagiosum!

Just remember the next time you use a public laundry washer or dryer your clothes are in the same washer as this parasitic virus is living possibly.

rofl! Welcome to the OTS Mel! You won't be the first,(nor the last) to make that mistake.)

I was thinking Matthew Taylor's girlfriend would be as excited to read that as she was the day she heard he became unemployed.

I'm also thinking there may be two new people on the Lawrence dating scene come Friday night.

One of which we know is unemployed and suffers from wanderlust.

At this point I believe it is safe to say that the bag of craisins has fermented. What is the holiday today besides Oct. 1?

Step away from the craisins, Matthew is the first respondent pictured.

Im sure Matthew Taylor's girlfriend is really excited to here that.

And why can't one flirt with their own special someone. Now that's one of the best way to keep things happy.

i know, right? i went and bought healthy snacks to put in my desk drawer, one of which were the craisins, then i end up eating half the bag.

prospector, I would think someone who is playing hard to get would not be so easy to find at one locale... in the same seats.... day.. after day...

almost like a puppy in the window. Pick me! /kidding :)

mel, you just gave those who know me a chuckle. This filly is an old broken down plow horse in need of the final trip to the back pasture with the 22. Adorable is not likely my known hashtag.

hard to want would be someone like rush limbaugh. no, not just his politics.... that's part of it but the whole package. big ol' fat blowhard trash talker. he looks like he would consistently produce spittle when he talks. super unattractive on pretty much every level possible.

prospector, playing hard to get can be a form of flirting, you tease you.

"flirt face"? wow, multi, you just keep getting built up more and more in my lil' imagination. you sound absolutely adorable!

Multidisciplinary 4 years, 6 months ago

What in the world is she talking about? Autie, you're the frenchie here..settle that girl down will ya? ;)

For me, flirting would have been redundant. My genetics cursed me with, 'the flirt face and expressions'. There is something good to be said for getting old, lol. How does that Brad Paisley online song go?

Mel Briscoe 4 years, 6 months ago

LMAO!! autie, you're alright w/ me. i'll buy you a few cozy inn funkburgers if you're ever in wonderful downtown sublima. just wear something old and raggedy-- you don't wear your good church goin' duds to cozy inn. unless you want your double breasted suit to smell like a new york cab driver's armpits.

mjw, so you're saying you flirt w/ your right hand? or do you sit on your left hand for a while til it goes numb and then do the "stranger" thing?...

0

Mel Briscoe 4 years, 6 months ago

autie, i think your's was the 2 millionth comment. and guess what? i predicted the exact moment it would happen-- down to the second. so what do i win?

Mel Briscoe 4 years, 6 months ago

jonas, are you still a geek wrapped in pretty packaging? that sounds intriguing... doing anything after work this evening? winky wink

0

jonas_opines 4 years, 6 months ago

I'm ghastly at flirting, and always have been, so I've generally tried not to. I've only really succeeded in flirting with one woman, who I married, and we were both geeks wrapped in pretty packages anyway, so our flirting was more a discussion about how we'd take over the world.

Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: Therefore the LORD will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts. Isaiah 3: 16-17

Flirting devalues your relationship with your spousal unit or significant other. It portrays one as cheap and easy. Sluts I say, all of you. (Except of T_O_B who must be devoid of the "That" gene)

autie 4 years, 6 months ago

Bashing tends to be a defense mechanism for denying deep rooted repressed feelings of confusion about whatever is bashed. I'm not 100% convinced.

thanks for the glossary, guys. wouldn't have been able to keep up w/out it.

I usually flirt after eating mexican food. Ice cream really makes me flirt. Loud too!! whew!

0

BABBOY 4 years, 6 months ago

People who flirt too much annoy me. But, I am married and work 60 plus hours a week and do not have time for such things. I just want to get things done and move on to the next crisis.

I would probably confuse rando for a homosexual (not that there is anything wrong with that). But, that is just me.

Flirt? Oh heavens no. Damn people of loose moral standards.
