Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

She's Not Really A Big Deal, But....

Posted 06-06-2020 at 08:28 PM by case44

....I do wonder if she privately obsesses over me.

Okay, a little background for you: A waitress at Saltgrass (who, for now, shall remain nameless) began flirting with me over the Thanksgiving holidays and Christmas, but she gave me limited ways of getting in touch with her outside of work. Oh, and she also has a boyfriend. Now, I've assured her to the best of my ability that I don't want to get in the way of a committed relationship, but she kind of blew that idea off. Tolerant, you say? Permissive? "What does she have in mind?" , I thought.

Well, I texted her twice and she only responded to me once. It was on the second text that convinced me that she's not that serious. She left Saltgrass in January for another job in Dallas which she'd been persuing. That meant that I didn't see her for several months, and the only place I'd see her would have been at Saltgrass if she would occasionally moonlight there. She once even went so far to say that she'd have dinner with me at Saltgrass. It's one thing if a lady just wants another friend, but what if she really....

~ Case! You don't honestly think she'd.... ~

Look, y'all, it hasn't gone anywhere. The funny thing is, I'm bringing this up now because I saw her for the first time in months at Saltgrass two days ago, and it was also my first time to dine in at that same restaurant since right before the COVID-19 life interruption. She said she came back on to fill in for a few folks who rotated days due to a limited staff. Will I be seeing her much again? I'll be polite, but I'm also going to be realistic. Face it, sports fans, if you're really that serious about a relationship, you'd want to respond back whenever I call or text, don't you think? For now, I won't pursue her, but if things change --- and sometimes, they do --- , then Ol' Case will come up with some strategery if she decides to pursue me. There was a part of her the other night that wanted to open up that door.

I don't want to make too big of a deal here, because she actually has some competition at a nearby Starbucks, where at least two other girls there are flirting with The Case. Decisions, decisions. Isn't life funny when things that should have happened to me years ago are now happening when I have gray hair??

My life can make a great Merle Haggard song.
