It's a funny story. What happened was...

About a month ago, Monica and I drove up to the replacement pool at a sister complex to mine [seeing as ours is busted up for the summer]. While we were laying out, I kept noticing this guy looking our way / staring. I thought maybe I was being a little too sensitive but finally I said, "Monica. That guy keeps looking over here at you. It's weird."
"He's looking over at who?" she asked skeptically.
"You!" I replied.
A little later, I needed to pee [surprise] and I sat up to put my swimsuit cover on, only to see that the guy was getting up to leave. I decided to wait it out and hold it until he left so I wouldn't have to walk past him. Instead, he walked right up to my chair, stuck out his hand and said, "Hi. You're really cute. Could I get your number?" 
Shocked and slightly awed, I agreed.

Weeks have gone by and I haven't heard a thing.


This evening, I took my massive amounts of laundry to the laundromat in our complex. As I walked up, I thought I recognized the guy who held the door open for me. Lo and behold, it was Pool Boy! I kept my eyes down and filled my washers. He got some stuff out of a dryer, walked outside, came back in and handed me a piece of paper. "I don't usually do this sort of thing, but you're really cute and we live in the same complex so that's my number and I'd love to hear from you some time." 


....seriously?! 


I muttered something incoherent and he left and I just stood there, once again in awe.

Does this guy have some cojones or what?
I kept his number, mostly as a souvenir for this story, I think. Who knows? Maybe I'll marry the guy one day and we can say it all started at the laundromat... or was it pool? Or....
