‘Peculiar’ would be the best way to describe my week, ‘down right queer’ would be another.
To start with, last Monday, I received a rather unusual piece of post – a postcard from Italy featuring a mountain shaped like a gent’s..erhem…’manhood’. In itself somewhat strange, I’m sure you’ll agree, but even stranger than that is the fact that there was no name on it. I haven’t got the foggiest who sent it, or indeed why!
Then, only a few days later, I arrived home after a decidedly delicious lunch with friends to discover two loaves of bread on my doorstep – one Irish Soda bread and the other a white sliced loaf. No note, no message, no anything. Just the bread.
Curiouser and curiouser.
I started to question people – “did you see anyone hanging around?” I queried. “Do you have any idea who might have done it?” I asked. “WAS IT YOU?” I scrrrrreamed! It had, of course, started to drive me crazy. But all my investigations were to no avail.
Then out of the blue on Sunday afternoon, as I walked through the park, a guy suddenly popped out from behind a thorny bush and whispered, “Ive been asked to give you this” . he handed me a plastic lobster then turned on his heels and ran!
I am bemused. Stumped. Mystified.
My friend Sarah is convinced its some sort of weird ploy to catch my attention. A variation on the ‘get your coat you’ve pulled’ method.
If this is true I must say, I’m impressed. Ok so I’m totally weirded out and I have no idea who it is, but it has most definitely caught my attention. I reckon making yourself stand out from the crowd is one of the key points when you’re trying to show off your flirting skills. Even if guys go for the regular method of just chatting us up, then the ones we usually continue talking to are those who come up with something quirky. If I were you I’d take this chap’s lead and partake in a little quirkiness yourself. See what comes of it, well what have you got to lose and if nothing else it’ll make life more interesting!
And as for my situation, well, I will just have to wait and see what comes of these strange events. Maybe my friend is wrong, maybe it is just a series of odd coincidences, or maybe its the failed revenge attack of some unknown enemy, who can say? Either way it has served to remind me how very superb the unusual can be and so I’m going to go out of my way to make everyday life a smidge weirder for all those around me, (particularly those I fancy!) of course that is assuming this nutter doesn’t kill me with a rogue umbrella in the meantime!
