There's Something About "Mary"

There is this particular guy who always catches my eye whenever I instruct at this gym. Twice a week I'm there and he'll be there as well. I am not implying he is stalking me of course, he's just there probably because that was the most convenient branch that he goes to. In fact he never joins any classes as far as I could see. He just works with the weights. Really tanned fellow, lean build and abs to die for, and this coming from a person who is not much into abs (I consider myself a more shoulder and arms person). He looks totally cool (in an icy sort of way), and it's a rare opportunity to actually catch him smiling.

In case anyone thinks I am being swept off my feet, this is not what it is all about. He just catches my eye. Much like a pretty looking cake, but you have no desire whatsoever to eat it. I am just curious as to why he catches my eye. Then yesterday it dawned on me. He looked almost like someone I used to date. Someone who later really messed me up (doesn't almost every single one of them?). Of course this one is a lot better looking than the guy I used to date. Definitely three times more buffed. However now that I know who he reminds me of I have kind of lost my visual appetite. He could smile at me and I think it would be my turn to turn icy.

i've never seen a pretty-looking cake that i wasn't tempted to eat...

sean: just for the record, I find your comment highly disturbing...

I like looking at pretty looking cakes :-) but that is just the icing!

The tastiest ones may not have all that pretty icing :-)(

Erm. You can't have your cake and eat it too?

Sorry, first thing that popped into my head.

east-west & whiterabbit: I am starting to regret using the whole cake analogy...
