Old Man Flirt

A couple of weeks ago, I was exhibiting at a conference in Boofooville, USA, where I am one of few melanin-blessed people. I’s minding my own bitness, sitting down behind my table on my MacBook when I hear:

*clears throat*

I look up to see this older Black man staring at me. This is what ensued:

Me: Oh hello.Him: Hi. What does your organization do?Me: We’re a nonprofit that blah blah blah 
Him: *staring a bit too hard at me* *kneels down on the floor so he’s eye level with me* 
Me: *shifts a little in chair* We’re based in Chicago but do regional work 
Him: *looking at me even harder* I’m from Chicago too! How about that? 
Me: umm… cool. *shifts in chair* 
Him: You are beautiful! 
Me: Umm… sure thanks O__O 
Him: What’s is your name? You are just… beautiful? 
Me: Luv 
Him: Oh wow! Well, I’m glad I met you. You are beautiful *stares into my soulspace*
Me: *looks around nervously* *nervous chuckle* 
Him: Yes…! *walks away slowly with sly smile*

He finally walks away and I wanna fall off my chair into a tub of bleach and Ajax. UNCLEAN!!!

Like the time the old man saw me on the bus stop one morning and said “GURL! “If I had my social security check on me, I’d offer to take you to dinner this afternoon.” O_o F my life.

Edit: I’m pretty sure I’m gonna get a message from my sister talmbout “Where’s the rest of the post?” I don spoiled folks with my tomes. Now when I wanna just write and quickly *drop mic* folks giving me the O__O. Don’t judge me cuz I wanted to be lazy last night and not write an ENTIRE post. LOL

    Even tho I dont meet the age requirement, I almost feel a need to use that social security check line. That is GOLD (sorta). Might also substitute "druthers" altho I have no idea what those are. I digress.

    When this happens, I tell them I don't mess with men older than my (insert male relative here).

    They get mad but they learn to stop being inappropriate!

    "Him: What's is your name? You are just… beautiful?"

    Why was it posed as a question? lol!! Or is that a typo. I find that hilarious for some reason.

    Yeah, the old men flirts are somethin' else. I got a Street Wise old man flirting with me everytime I pass him. One time I was trying to catch a light that lasts literally 2 secons for pedestrians and when he saw me zoom by he screamed, "Now I know you ain't gonna just sneak by me with all that BOOTAY!". I mean, I had my booty-lovin jeans on and yes it looked kinda fly, but….o_O. I mean, how you supposed to respect yo elders in times like that?! lmao
